Winner and Runner-Up at Waste Management Open Rely on Company’s Superiorly-Designed Shafts
(FORT WORTH, TX) – UST Mamiya – maker of the world’s finest carbon fiber golf shafts – confirms the winner and runner-up finisher at the PGA Tour’s Waste Management Open relied on its award-winning shaft lines.This victory represents the company’s fourth on the PGA Tour this season, with the champion playing a proprietary PING shaft made by UST Mamiya in his driver, the PING TFC700D, a standard offering in the company's i15 line. He also used the ATTAS International Series in his 3-wood (80, X-Flex) and the Proforce V2 in his hybrid (89, X-Flex). The runner-up played the Proforce V2 in his 3-wood (86, S-Flex).“We have had great early success on the PGA Tour this season and are confident it will continue,” says Gene Simpson, COO of UST Mamiya. “To be successful at this level, players must be confident that their equipment works to perfectly compliment their games, with UST Mamiya shafts they can rest assured.”
Really? S-flex? Really?

He is a better dresser than Poulter in my opinion.
Loved those orange pants and matching shoes on Sunday.
No waaaaaaaaaaaaay! Not better, not even close to Poulter!

Tour players put this or that in their bag all the time; but doing what Ricky's doing does beg the question why is he throwing it at the media, there by throwing it in Titleist's face. Ricky's good but he's not good enough to test a major sponsor like Titleist, least IMO.
He is playing the IDEA Pro Blacks. I Tivo'd the Phoenix open and went back and examined the hybrid. They did a close up - it's an Adams with a 909h headcover. WITHOUT A DOUBT.
And believe me, Acushnet thinks they have the next Tiger Woods in Rickie Fowler - Bet on it. They certainly are betting on him.
I'm pretty sure if Acushnet thinks they have the next Tiger, it would be Rory, not Rickie. Not a knock on Fowler, I actually really like his game, but the potential for Rory seems much higher.

Me too. I'm 5'8" and always interested in lie angles and club lengths for the shorter tour players.
Unless he cuts the club shorter, he may get away 1 deg upright. But that would lose distance.
I play std lie & length and was thinking bending 1* flat.
Maybe it's an error, 1* flat instead of upright???
height doesn't have as much to do with lie angles as swing plane and angle of attack
