Fujikura Wins Driver, All Woods Count at Northern Trust LA Open

New Motore F1 Shaft Helps Drive Win
(Vista, CA – February 20, 2009) Fujikura won the Driver and All Woods shaft brand counts which includes hybrids at the Northern Trust Los Angeles Open this week.

Fujikura's new Motore Series is driving its leadership position as 14 shafts were in play in drivers, woods and hybrids at the tournament. Its new Motore F1 was the leading driver shaft. Image

"This win is exciting because more and more of the new Motore shafts, especially the Motore F1 are being played every week," says Dave Schnider, President/COO of Fujikura. "This leadership position
proves that the Motore F1 is the hottest, fastest growing shaft brand on the PGA Tour, and becoming the hottest, fastest growing shaft in golf."
"We're thrilled with the success of the Motore series, and particularly with the increase in Motore F1 in play in drivers," says Mike Sposa, Fujikura Tour Representative and former PGA Tour pro. "These pros strongly validate the powerful partnership between Fujikura and our OEM partners to develop and produce these superior performance clubs."
The new Motore series shafts are available now through Fujikura's Charter Dealers across the United States and around the world.

The Motore Series shafts feature Fujikura's proprietary and proven H.I.T. which stores more energy during the downswing and releases the energy just before impact, while maintaining the stability of the entire club. The result is greater distance and accuracy in all clubs. Motore's "smart" shaping of the tip enables these benefits while minimizing weight, allowing the tip end to accelerate faster than conventional tips.

Fujikura's Tour leadership was highlighted by being the leading driver shaft brand at all the Tour majors in 2008. The brand's dominant leadership position reinforces Fujikura's position as the PGA Tour's #1 Driver and Wood shaft brand for the last eight years.

Fujikura is the primary supplier to many national brand OEM's offering both proprietary and brand product shaft designs. Fujikura products also can be custom fitted through its network of over 900 Charter Dealers. To learn more about Fujikura, visit www.fujikuragolf.com.
