BOULDER, Colo. (August 4, 2014) – The 2014 Regions Tradition winner sealed his second victory of the season at the 3M Championship on Sunday. He has played the TOUR 120g shaft in his irons since 2008 and was the first player gaming KBS to win on a professional tour.
This KBS shaft veteran took home the 3M Championship title after sinking a birdie on the final hole of the tournament. The three-round scoring average at this year’s event was the lowest in its 22-year history at 69.069.
“As one of the first players to adopt- and win- with the KBS TOUR shaft, we’re especially excited,” said Rob Cheng, CEO of KBS Golf Shafts. “He has consistently played at a high level using KBS and we look forward to seeing what he accomplishes throughout the rest of 2014.”
In two years on the Champions Tour, this player has earned five wins and 22 top-10 finishes. He won the 2013 Charles Schwab Cup and is currently in 3rd place, up two spots from last week. Throughout his career on the PGA Tour, he has tallied an impressive 14 wins.
