“Congratulations to the gold and silver medal winners in Men’s Golf at the 2020 Summer Olympics.  It was fantastic to see Graphite Design golf shafts used by medal winners at Kasumigaseki Country Club only a few miles from Chichibu where they are manufactured”, stated Erik Boysen, VP of Tour Promotions, Pro’s Choice Golf Shafts, Inc.

The Tour AD BB “Blue Bullet” wood shaft model is designed to promote a low/mid launch angle and lower ball spin. Designed and manufactured exclusively at the Graphite Design factory headquarters in Japan, the Tour AD BB is available in 50g R2(Lite), R1(Regular) and S flex, 60g SR(Stiff Regular), S and X flex, 70g S and X flex and 80g S and X flex. The Tour AD DI 5-R2, R1 and S flex, 6-SR, S and X flex, 7-S and X flex and 8-S and X are available in two color schemes orange with white bands and green rings and a 2nd color option of black with white bands and silver rings. The Tour AD DI 5-X, 6-TX, 7-TX, 8-TX and 9-X flex shafts are available only in the orange color scheme.

The Tour AD DI also utilizes premium, aerospace quality 50t carbon-fiber materials to provide the best performing shaft available. The softer mid-section bend profile of the Tour AD DI allows the player to load the shaft properly, yet it maintains a firm enough tip section through impact promoting a high launch and low spin ball flight condition.  The result, the Tour AD DI delivers players to the next level in shaft performance and will create a “DEEP IMPACT” on your game!
