KBS WINS NATIONWIDE AND CHAMPIONS TOUR EVENTSKBS Shafts enjoyed an exciting weekend as players emerged victorious at the Nationwide and Champions Tour events trusting steel shafts from the brand's signature KBS TOUR Series line. First introduced in 2008, KBS Shafts continue to surge as the fastest-growing steel shaft brand on Tour recently surpassing 100 total players on the PGA, European, and Nationwide Tours trusting their products. Continued adoption for KBS Shafts is highlighted by 10 top 50 players in the World Rankings trusting shafts from the TOUR Series line.
At the Rex Hospital Open on the Nationwide Tour, KBS TOUR® X (130g) shafts were used by the top finisher highlighting 30 total players at the event trusting shafts from the KBS TOUR Series. This week's player count highlights rapid growth on the Nationwide Tour where 13 players arrived at the year's first event trusting KBS. Recent tournaments show KBS now averaging 25+ players per event in addition to 3 victories already this year.
On the Champions Tour, KBS TOUR® X (130g) shafts were trusted by the top finisher at the Principal Charity Classic marking the KBS brand's fourth win this year on this tour alone. This week's event is the 10th of the season giving KBS 40% of the victories in 2012.
According to Director of Tour Operations, Kim Braly, "The player growth we're seeing on Tour this year is simply phenomenal. On the PGA TOUR, we continue to attract more of the game's best and most visible players. On the Nationwide, with the addition of KBS Representative, Jason Hause, we're finally working with players at the game's top proving ground. Our rapid success across every tour and the performance of players using KBS speaks directly to the product's performance and I personally couldn't be more excited."
