OBAN extends its worldwide winning streak with first place finishes in Qatar and Panama, and top ten finishes on all three Tours. Swinging the highly touted Kiyoshi HB High Balance 75 in his Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 816 3-wood, the 27-year old South African posted a 14-under final score, successfully defending his title at Doha Golf Club by a two-stroke margin.
Crossing continents, OBAN delivered a victory and 2nd place finish in Panama City with the champion playing a Kiyoshi Purple 100 in his Titleist 816 hybrid, and the runner-up playing a Kiyoshi Purple 100 in his Adams XTD hybrid. At Torrey Pines Golf Club, the 3rd place finisher played a Kiyoshi Purple 85 in his TaylorMade RBZ 3-wood.
“All I can say is – what a week,” said Rich Parzych, OBAN Tour Representative. “We are elated to see players perform with our new Kiyoshi High Balance and flagship Kiyoshi Purple shafts. Across the continents, every OBAN shaft series was in play on Tour, including over 30 Kiyoshi shafts.”
OBAN’s Kiyoshi HB (High Balance) affords custom fitters a wider range of options for optimizing club head weight and shaft length combinations that deliver greater speed and distance. The shaft design preserves symmetry and stability throughout the golf swing, maximizing energy transfer to the ball at impact.
Kiyoshi Purple’s unique structure reveals design properties ideal for creating high launch and low spin performance for longer distance and tighter dispersion. The shaft is fabricated usingOBAN’s revolutionary Emersion Wrapped Frequency (EWF) Technology, a proprietary design process combining high modulus and ultra-thin carbon fiber sheets for multi-directional shaft strength, enabling significantly improved torque control, bend points, and stability with less ovalization.
