“It’s great to see this player’s first Champions Tour win accomplished with KBS tour in the bag,” said Rob Cheng, CEO of KBS Golf Shafts. “The shot control and responsive feel of the KBS TOUR assist in making it one of the most trusted shafts on professional tours.”

The winner of the U.S. Amateur played KBS C-TAPER 130g shafts in his irons and KBS HI-REV shafts in his wedges. This victory marks the third time in four years that the U.S. Amateur champion has had KBS in the bag.

In addition to all trusting KBS, the U.S. Amateur champions in 2011, 2012 and 2014 each played C-TAPER shafts in their irons.

“We’re really humbled to have three out of the last four U.S. Amateur champions include the C-TAPER in their bags,” said Rob Cheng, CEO of KBS Golf Shafts. “Due to the circumstances of this win, this year is especially meaningful.”

Ranked No. 776 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking prior to the tournament, the 20-year old held off a competitive field- including the World No. 1- to capture the win. He has only played four college events and is the youngest player ever to win the U.S. Amateur.

KBS C-Taper Lite Parallel

KBS Shaft Adds C-Taper Lite Parallel To Line

BOULDER, Colo. (August 18, 2014) — One of the most recent additions to the KBS line, the C-TAPER LITE, is now available in parallel tip. The C-TAPER LITE shaft incorporates proven KBS performance benefits in a lighter weight design.

“The addition of the C-TAPER LITE parallel assists in diversifying our line,” said Kim Braly, director of R&D and Tour operations at KBS. “Despite this being a lighter weight shaft, the C-TAPER LITE actually fits a large amount of strong players.”

The C-TAPER LIGHT was added to the KBS product line in 2013 and has had success both on Tour and in the aftermarket. It is available in three flexes, including 105g, 110g and 115g, and produces a mid-high trajectory and controlled spin. Featuring a constant taper design and proportionate increase in wall thickness, the C-TAPER LITE optimizes energy transfer for maximum distance. Independent testing results revealed 5+ yards in added distance.
