Grafalloy Epic claims first pro victory at Regions Charity Classic
Grafalloy Epic continues to turn the world of golf upside-down claiming its first professional victory at the Regions Charity Classic on the Champions Tour. The Champion relied on Epic's patented Nanofuse® construction to hit over 78% of his fairways in route to a final-round 65 and a three-round total of 204. He then sank a 13-foot birdie putt on the third playoff hole to secure his second consecutive Regions Charity Classic title.
At the BMW Charity Pro-Am at The Cliffs on the Nationwide Tour, there were 12 Epic shafts in play helping solidify Grafalloy's top three position in wood shaft manufacturers for the week. In addition, the Champion trusted the launch monitor tuned performance of ProLaunch Blue in his three wood to become the first player since 2005 to claim back-to-back titles in consecutive starts.
"Epic represents the first sporting goods product that's been truly enabled by recent advances in utilizing complete nanotechnology," states Graeme Horwood, Vice President Engineering / R & D. "With Nanofuse, we have introduced an entirely new material into golf shaft design that offers the advantages of both steel and graphite without any of the inherent limitations associated with each."
