World No. 2 wins the Dunlop Phoenix Championship using ACCRA


Kingston, Ontario (November 19, 2012) – ACCRA Premium Golf Shafts is proud to have an incredibly skilled player who trusts his golf game to custom fitted ACCRA shafts in his TaylorMade RBZ driver and RBZ 3-wood.
One year ago, this Northwestern grad won the final tournament of the 2011 PGA Tour season to secure his first PGA Tour money title win and weeks later he did the same on the European Tour.  This talented golfer also obtained “Player of the Year” status, as well as the no. 1 golfer in the world ranking.  The 2012 season has been as successful as his last by maintaining a no. 1 world ranking until the PGA Championship in August. But as of this past weekend, things just got even better! Now back to no. 2 in the world rankings, the 2012 Dunlop Phoenix champion has trusted ACCRA shafts for more than five years and his switch to the new Tour Z model last season has resulted in a significant rise in total driving statistics. 
The victory at the prestigious Dunlop Phoenix in Miyazaki, Japan marks his third worldwide win this season and sets this great champion up for another run at the no. 1 position in the world rankings for 2012.  Recent Dunlop Phoenix winners include Tiger Woods (twice), Thomas Bjorn (twice), Ian Poulter, Padriag Harrington, Lee Westwood and David Duval.
“Professional golf is a great proving ground for new technologies. The ACCRA Tour Z line of shafts has enjoyed unprecedented success on PGA Tours worldwide this fall. When players using our shafts achieve success, it just reaffirms the importance of going through a proper fitting and utilizing an excellent product,” said Ron Graham, ACCRA Tour Rep. “On tour we take time to find the ACCRA shaft that optimizes a player’s launch conditions and, in each case, the renowned ACCRA feel plays a big part in any professional trusting ACCRA shafts,” continued Graham.
ACCRA Tour Z shafts continue its exciting streak of wins. At the Ryder Cup, two stalwarts of the victorious European team used Tour Z shafts.  The recent winner of the Grand Slam of golf featured a TaylorMade R11s driver, custom fit with an ACCRA Tour Z 65+ shaft. One week later, the BMW Championship champion also chose to fit his Taylormade R11s driver with an ACCRA Tour Z 65+.
 “ACCRA is dedicated to developing shafts for all levels of discerning golfers, and top ranked professional golfers are no different. Each of the three recent champions went through a fitting process similar to what any golfer would experience when visiting a certified ACCRA fitter,” said Gawain Robertson, ACCRA co-founder.  “All ACCRA shaft designs are developed with custom fitting in mind.  Our belief is that the only way to optimize a golfer’s potential is through professional custom fitting, and this is why ACCRA shafts are only available through being professionally fit by a network of certified ACCRA fitters on every continent,” continued Robertson.
