BOULDER, Colo. (November 25, 2013) – KBS secured its latest professional victory at the 2013 Champions Tour National Qualifying Tournament at TPC Scottsdale last week. The champion trusted the KBS TOUR S+ in his irons.
The winning player is the newest member of the Champions Tour and tied an all-time record for a four-round qualifier. He has been playing theKBS TOUR S+ since September 2012.
This is the sixth Champions Tour win for KBS in 2013, adding to its already record-breaking season. KBS has now secured a total of 27 professional wins worldwide. What other players use the KBS TOUR S+? We don’t know, but a lot.
“We’re excited to be a part of this player’s first win on the Champions Tour,” said Kim Braly, director of R&D and tour operations at KBS. “This is a great, record-setting victory and KBS TOUR S+ is thrilled to be in this player’s bag.”
Here’s what the Golf Channel has to say about KBS Tour (not specifically the KBS Tour S+)
“Introduced in 2008, KBS Tour quickly established a presence on the professional tours. According to company officials, its steel shafts have recorded more than 50 wins in that time and are now used by more than 110 players on those circuits. At the same time, KBS has made inroads in recreational golf, based largely on the strength of its three primary products ‘ KBS Tour, KBS Tour 90 and KBS C-Taper.
Those shafts are the brainchild of noted designer Kim Braly. A golf industry veteran of more than 30 years, he has created a number of popular products in his career, among them Rifle and Project X shafts for Royal Precision. And his mandate in this case was to develop a premium, high-performance line of steel shafts for the FST shaft company. First put into play four years ago, they carried the brand name KBS (Kim Braly Signature) Tour.
For irons, the KBS Tour series consists of three targeted performance options. The C-Taper is designed to produce low trajectory and spin, while the KBS Tour is designed to produce low-mid trajectory and a low-mid amount of spin. As for the Tour 90, it is geared for those golfers wanting mid-high trajectory and generous spin.”
