Brand claims first professional victory at the Region’s Charity Classic

Grafalloy Epic claimed its first professional victory at the Regions Charity Classic on the Champions Tour. The Champion relied on Epic’s patented Nanofuse construction to hit over 78% of his fairways in route to a final-round 65 and a three-round total of 204. He then sank a 13-foot birdie putt on the third playoff hole to secure his second consecutive Regions Charity Classic title.
At the BMW Charity Pro-Am at The Cliffs on the Nationwide Tour, there were 12 Epic shafts in play helping solidify Grafalloy’s top three position in wood shaft manufacturers for the week. In addition, the Champion trusted the launch monitor tuned performance of ProLaunch Blue in his three-wood, to become the first player since 2005 to claim back-to-back titles in consecutive starts.

“Epic represents the first sporting goods product that’s been truly enabled by recent advances in utilizing complete nanotechnology,” said Graeme Horwood, vice president engineering / R & D. “With Nanofuse, we have introduced an entirely new material into golf shaft design that offers the advantages of both steel and graphite without any of the inherent limitations associated with each.”

Through extensive robotic and player test data, Epic claims to produce not only increased distance off the tee, but also a 35% improvement in shot dispersion when compared to graphite shafts on the market today. This combined improvement in distance and accuracy results in as much as 15-20 yards closer to the pin off the tee. Additional information is available at
