ACCRA AXIV wins at  the Turning Stone Championship

PGMC – A PGA Tour rookie using an ACCRA premium golf shaft topped a strong PGA Tour field that included 8 different 2008 PGA Tour champions and 6 former Major champions this past week chalking up 2 wins in a row for players using ACCRA shafts.

This Columbia South Carolina native birdied his final two holes to snatch his first victory and the $1,008,000 first prize. On Friday (second round) he switched to a TaylorMade Tour Burner 3 wood, custom fit with an ACCRA AXIV XE 80 golf shaft and continued to rely this combination throughout the weekend.

The 7,482 – yard Atunyote Golf Club at Turning Stone Resort in Verona N.Y. played long and tough in the cool and damp conditions and this 24 year old “bomber” took advantage of his length especially on the tough par 5’s. 

ACCRA shafts have now been used to win more than $36,000,000 on the 2008 PGA Tour that has included 5 victories and more than 180 top 20 finishes. This combined with 4 victories and more than 60 top 20 finishes on the European Tour has made 2008 a banner year around the world for Touring Professionals trusting their game with ACCRA premium golf shafts. 

2 wins in a row is great, but the cool aspect about this victory is that this player switched back to his TaylorMade 3 wood with an ACCRA AXIV shaft after the first round and used it to make some key shots throughout the final two days on his way to victory.” Stated Gawain Robertson (ACCRA Tour Rep.) “ACCRA AXIV shafts provide unparalleled feel and stability even for one of the longest hitters on the PGA Tour” continued Mr. Robertson.
