The champion finished at 13-under at Bay Hill, one shot ahead of the runner-up. This player turned to the KBS TOUR-V shaft after the Honda Classic, which is the newest shaft in the KBS product line.

The KBS Tour-V shaft is available for pre-order immediately through authorized KBS dealers with orders shipping November 1st.
“We are very excited to introduce the KBS Tour-V shaft. It has been tested and perfected over the past year and a half, and truly delivers on offering a tight dispersion shaft in a light weight package. The results we get from PGA Tour player testing are spot on. Dispersion with the KBS Tour-V is some of the tightest we have ever seen and it maintains our signature smooth feel at impact. Lighter weight has become more popular and this allows golfers to swing a little easier. Our team is thrilled to bring this shaft to market and see it as the stock shaft for Callaway’s new player’s iron.” said Kim Braly, Director of R&D and Tour Operations at KBS Golf Shafts.
