Aldila #1 graphite shaft manufacturer at FedExCup for 4th consecutive year

VooDoo shaft helps winner of Soboba Classic notch second Nationwide Tour win

Tour ChampionshipFor the fourth consecutive year Aldila (www.aldila.com) is the #1 graphite shaft manufacturer at the PGA Tour Playoffs for the FedExCup, according to the Darrell Survey. Led by their latest shaft series, the RIP, “The Hottest Shafts In Golf” dominated the competition by having 67 more wood shafts in play than the next leading shaft manufacturer throughout the four-event playoff and 23 more hybrid shafts in play than their closest competitor. Aldila has controlled the wood and hybrid shaft counts on the PGA Tour all season by winning both counts for 32 of the past 36 PGA Tour events.

“The demand on the Tour for the RIP (Reverse Interlaminar Placement) Technology continues to be overwhelming,” said Stewart Bahl, Aldila’s Marketing Manager. “The RIP employs patent-pending technology and exclusive materials to completely transform shaft design from the inside out. Through the use of computer modeling technology and exclusive materials provided by the Aldila Materials Division, Aldila engineers were able to completely rethink golf shaft design and performance. The result is a revolutionary shaft with optimum flex and torque characteristics with incredible feel that continues to be tested and proven across the Tours week after week.”

Playing the RIP shaft in his Driver, the second longest driver at the Tour Championship finished with an overall Driving Average of 313.1 yards, which was well beyond of the field’s average of 295.3 yards. Switching to the RIP shaft in his Driver, the second most accurate driver at the Tour Championship finished with an overall driving accuracy percentage of 66.1 percent ahead of the field’s average of 52.86 percent.

The winner of the Soboba Classic used Aldila’s VooDoo shaft, featuring S-core Technology™, to help him become the third two-time winner on the Nationwide Tour in 2011. The victory earned the Ocala, Fla. native $135,000 and catapulted him to No. 3 on the Nationwide Tour Money List with only five events left this season. The Top 25 on the Money List earn their PGA Tour card for the 2012 season.

Aldila’s S-core, or stabilized core, provides the golfer with stability through an innovative design that incorporates a one-piece carbon fiber rib system. This helps the shaft stay more concentric during the golf swing thereby transferring maximum energy.

Aldila’s patented shaft design technologies provide the perfect balance of applied art and engineering. They are continually on the leading edge of the golf world through their relentless pursuit of the next best innovation. They do the experimenting so you don’t have to. Pushing success to the edge and redefining how power should feel. Are you playing Aldila, or just graphite?

Aldila makes it three in a row by winning wood & hybrid shaft counts at BMW Championship

“The Hottest Shafts In Golf” captures wood & hybrid shaft manufacturer counts on Nationwide Tour

describe the imageAs the field narrows in the PGA Tour Playoffs for the FedExCup from 140 to 30 players, one thing remains constant; Aldila (www.aldila.com) continues to be the #1 graphite golf shaft of choice.

At the BMW Championship this past weekend, Aldila won both the wood and hybrid shaft manufacturer counts, according to the Darrell Survey. With the double count win, Aldila has captured both the wood and hybrid shaft counts at all three FedExCup Playoff events and 31 of the past 35 PGA Tour events this season.

“We are extremely pleased that the top players on the PGA Tour continue to trust Aldila’s leading shaft technology,” said Stewart Bahl, Aldila’s Marketing Manager. “Each of Aldila’s three patented shaft design technologies, RIP®, S-core and MLT, offers players of all abilities optimum performance to maximize the potential of their individual swings. Reverse Interlaminar Placement Technology (RIP) transforms the shaft from the inside out providing players with shot control.

RIP shafts offer golfers lower torque, increased tip stability and better tip stiffness control. Aldila’s S-core Technology™ (S-core) provides the golfer with stability through an innovative design incorporating a one-piece carbon fiber rib system. This helps the shaft stay more concentric during the golf swing thereby transferring maximum energy. Aldila’s Micro Laminate Technology (MLT) is designed using ultra thin layers of premium aerospace graphite that are matched with a proprietary thin profile shaft design that eliminate ‘dead zones’ in the shaft for precise feel.”

The RIP golf shaft was instrumental for the longest driver at the BMW Championship. Using Aldila RIP shaft he finished with an overall average driving distance of 323.8 yards, which was considerably longer than the Field’s average of 295.7 yards.

At the Albertson’s Boise Open on the Nationwide Tour, “The Hottest Shafts In Golf” also won both the wood and hybrid shaft manufacturer counts.

Aldila captures back-to-back wood and hybrid shaft count wins in FedExCup Playoffs

Top 3 at Mylan Classic all benefit from Aldila’s leading golf shaft technology

describe the imageAs the top players in the world continue to battle it out in the FedExCup Playoffs, Aldila (www.aldila.com) continues to be the #1 shaft of choice. “The Hottest Shafts In Golf” captured the wood and hybrid shaft manufacturer counts at the Deutsche Bank Championship this week and both counts the week prior at The Barclays. At the Deutsche Bank Championship Aldila had 22 more wood shafts and nearly double the amount of hybrid shafts in play than the next leading shaft manufacturer, according to the Darrell Survey. At The Barclays, Aldila had 39 more wood shafts and nearly double the amount of hybrid shafts in play as their closest competitor.

Winning both the wood and hybrid shaft manufacturer counts at the Deutsche Bank Championship marked the 30th time in the past 34 weeks that Aldila has won both shaft manufacturer counts on the PGA Tour.

“Week after week throughout the season, the best players on the PGA Tour continue to rely on Aldila’s leading shaft technology,” said Stewart Bahl, Aldila’s Marketing Manager. “Aldila has developed three patented shaft design technologies, RIP®, S-core and MLT, that each offer players of all abilities optimum performance to maximize the potential of their individual swings.

For the second week in a row, Aldila also owned the top of the leader board on the Nationwide Tour as the winner as well as the second and third place finishers at the Mylan Classic all played Aldila shafts. Using Aldila’s VS Proto™ shaft, the Mylan Classic winner finished with a 17-under 267 (68-63- 69-67) and a first place check for $108,000. The amount almost assures him of his PGA Tour card for next season as he moved up to 4th place in the Top 25 of the Nationwide Tour Money Leaders. At the end of the season the Top 25 all earn their PGA Tour card for the following season.
