Carlsbad, CA –August 31, 2016 – Pro’s Choice Golf Shafts, Inc. announced today that the winner of the Japan Golf Tour Organization (JGTO) RIZAP KBC Augusta tournament played the brand new Graphite Design Tour AD TP-6 X-Stiff Flex shaft in his Callaway Driver and two Graphite Design Tour AD PT model wood shafts in his Callaway Fairway metal woods.


”We wish to congratulate the winner of the RIZAP KBC Augusta tournament on his recent tour victory while playing the brand new Graphite Design Tour AD TP wood shaft model.  We recently introduced the brand new Tour AD TP wood shafts to the U.S. professional golf tours and we plan to introduce this exciting new model to our customers in Mid-October.  The TP in Tour AD TP stands for Tour Proven, thus we are certainly excited about this first win”, stated Bill McPherson, Vice President of Sales, Pro’s Choice Golf Shafts, Inc.


This recent win on the JGTO Men’s Tour circuit resulted in the 31st global professional tour win for a Graphite Design brand model shaft within the 2016 profession golf tour season.

Brand new for 2017, the Graphite Design Tour AD TP wood model shaft is the latest edition to the Tour AD premium line of golf shafts.  Designed and manufactured at the Graphite Design Japan factory headquarters, the new Tour AD TP wood shaft will be available in 40g R2, R1 and S flex, 50g R2, R1 and S flex, 60g SR, S and X flex, 70g S and X flex and 80g S and X flex.

The Tour AD TP, like all of the premium Tour AD wood shafts, utilizes premium, aerospace quality 50t carbon-fiber materials in order to deliver the best feeling and performing shaft available to golfers.

Designed around new tooling, the Tour AD TP utilizes a brand new technology called Fast Taper Technology or “FTT”.  This new technology incorporates a faster taper rate from the lower mid-section to the tip of the shaft than previous Tour AD wood shaft models.  The new Fast Taper Technology provides the overall feeling of greater club head control at impact and an increase in club head speed through the swing.

The new Tour AD TP shaft has a medium stiffness starting at the handle thru the mid-section of the shaft and a stiff tip profile to promote a mid to mid/high launch condition and low spin.  The new Tour AD TP also utilizes TORAYCA ® T1100G carbon-fiber pre-preg with NANOALLOY ® technology in the tip section of the shaft for additional shaft stability, exceptional feel and precise ball control.

Make a change in your Driver or Fairway metal wood today to the same shaft that the professionals use, the new “Tour Proven” Tour AD TP model of premium Graphite Design graphite golf shafts with FTT – Fast Taper Technology.
