Aldila’s RIP (Reverse Interlaminar Placement) shaft technology in his driver, the winner of the SAS Championship out drove the competition to notch his first victory on the Champions Tour. He finished the tournament with an 11-under-par 205 to win by one stroke and moved
from 20th to 14th place on the 2011 Champions Tour Charles Schwab Cup Points.

With the help of Aldila’s (www.aldila.com) RIP shaft, he led the SAS Championship field in driving distance with a tournament average of 296.5 yards. Statistically he leads the Champions Tour in overall Driving Distance with an average of 295.7 yards.

“The RIP employs patent-pending technology and exclusive materials to completely transform
shaft design from the inside out,” said Stewart Bahl, Aldila’s Marketing Manager. “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.”

On the PGA Tour, the RIP helped lead the way for “The Hottest Shafts In Golf” as Aldila won the wood and hybrid shaft manufacturer counts at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Aldila had 21 more wood shafts and 10 more hybrid shafts in play than their closest competitor, according to the Darrell Survey. Winning both counts marked the 33rd time in the past 37 PGA Tour events that Aldila has won both shaft counts.

For the fourth consecutive year Aldila was the #1 graphite shaft manufacturer at the PGA Tour Playoffs for the FedExCup, according to the Darrell Survey. “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’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?
