2013 Memorial Tournament Champion

2013 Memorial Tournament Champion trusts custom fit driver with an
ACCRA Premium Golf Shaft

KINGSTON, Ontario (June 6, 2013) – PGMC/ACCRA extends our sincerest congratulations to the 2013 Champion of the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide in Dublin, Ohio. Played on the famed Miurfield Village Golf Course against one of the years strongest fields, the Georgia Tech grad birdied the 72nd hole to win by 2 shots.
The Sea Island Georgia resident has moved to second in the 2013 FedEx Cup points race, second in official PGA Tour money earned with more than $4,000,000.00, and, is now only the second player on Tour with multiple wins this season. This now makes two players in the top 7 of the world golf rankings, choosing to trust their games with an ACCRA Tour Z shaft.
This champion was custom fit to a Bridgestone 9.5 J Series driver with an ACCRA Tour Z ST55 premium shaft by Justin Nelson of Cool Clubs in Scotsdale, Arizona just before his first win of the season at the WGC Accenture Match Play.
“ACCRA golf is a huge proponent of the art and science of custom clubfitting. PGA Tour players are professionally custom fit on a weekly basis by manufacture’s tour vans that are onsite at each event. This case was a little different. The Champion choose to be fit by a brand agnostic professional clubfitter offsite from the PGA Tour. Using the latest in technology and decades of golf club and golf shaft knowledge, Cool Clubs determined this combination of Bridgestone and ACCRA was the best one to help this Ryder Cupper maximize his launch conditions,” stated Gawain Robertson, co-founder of ACCRA. “The coolest part of this story is that any golfer can visit a certified ACCRA fitter, like Cool Clubs, and receive a tour fitting experience just like the winner of the 2013 Memorial Tournament,” continued Mr. Robertson.
ACCRA certified fitters are located in virtually every major golf center in North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and South America. ACCRA premium golf shafts are exclusively available through the world’s best clubfitters because it just does not make sense to buy off a rack.
“Each week, more and more PGA Tour players are changing to ACCRA. We are honored to have played a part in the success of so many of the world’s best golfers,” commented Dave Makarucha, co-founder of ACCRA. “Watching the world’s best succeed with our shafts is exciting, yet all of us at ACCRA enjoy the success stories from grassroots golfers even more. Each year ACCRA grows along with the world’s best professional clubfitters and we have promoted clubfitting since our inception in 2004. This is what we are most proud of.”
ACCRA shafts have always been designed to enable the world’s best club fitters to have multiple options. This ensures that discerning golfers of all levels can be properly fit to maximize launch conditions for increase distance and accuracy.
