Aldila's New Tour Green Drives to Victory

Using Aldila’s new Tour Green shaft in his Driver and its RIP shaft in his 3 Wood, the winner of the 82° Abierto OSDE del Centro tournament captured his second victory in his only two starts on the PGA Tour Latinoamerica. His victory came on the first playoff hole after hitting a solid drive off the 18th tee. The week prior, the Argentine came up just short of his third major championship title after falling to Adam Scott in a playoff at the Masters. His previous two major titles are the 2009 Masters and 2007 U.S. Open Championship.

Aldila also won the wood and hybrid shaft manufacturer counts at the RBC Heritage. Aldila had 11 more wood shafts and three more hybrid shafts in play than the next leading shaft manufacturer at the Masters, according to the Darrell Survey. The double count win marked the sixth consecutive week that Aldila has won both the wood and hybrid shaft manufacturer counts on the PGA Tour.

The Tour Green is also being played in the driver and 3 wood of the Most Accurate Driver on the PGA Tour. He leads the Tour with an overall Driving Accuracy Percentage rating of 73.58 percent compared to the Tour’s average of 60.35 percent. He also plays Aldila’s new graphite RIP Iron shafts in all of his iron clubs.

According to Aldila engineers, the Tour Green and Tour Blue is a new shaft design that’s currently undergoing final testing on Tour and will be released later this year. The company’s new graphite irons will afford golfers unrivaled consistency, straightness and low torque with optimum feel when they are released later this summer.

Aldila NV and VS Proto Used to win Shell Houston Open

The winner of the Shell Houston Open picked up his second career PGA Tour victory with the help of Aldila’s NV™ and VS Proto™ shafts in his hybrid clubs. With the win, he earns two more years of eligibility on the PGA Tour, a start at next year’s Hyundai Tournament of Champions and a trip to Augusta for this year’s Masters Tournament.

Both shafts feature Aldila’s Micro Laminate Technology™, which provides the player with unmatched performance and incredible feel.

“Aldila’s NV and VS Proto shafts feature Aldila’s patent-pending Micro Laminate Technology™ that provides the players enhanced power, consistent flex and precise feel,” said Stewart Bahl, Aldila’s Marketing Manager. “The consistent taper and slim profile produces a shaft with consistent performance, flex and feel throughout the length of the shaft while eliminating the dull “boardy” feel of other shafts on the market.”

For the third consecutive week, “The Hottest Shafts In Golf” captured the wood and hybrid shaft counts on the PGA Tour and six of the Top 10 finishers at the Shell Houston Open played Aldila shafts. As more and more players make the switch to Aldila’s new Tour Green and Tour Blue shafts in their drivers and fairway woods, Aldila continues to lead the wood and hybrid shaft counts on the PGA Tour. A total of 35 Tour Blue/Green were in play at the Shell Houston Open. Aldila had 22 more wood shafts and 10 more hybrid shafts in play than the next leading shaft manufacturer at the Shell Houston Open, according to the Darrell Survey.
