Mitsubishi Chemical Dominates Driver Shaft Win Count for 2018-19 Season

Renown Diamana™, TENSEI™ Brands Rack Up Record 18 Wins, including 3 Majors

Carlsbad, California-based Mitsubishi Chemical Graphite Shafts continued their dominant driver shaft win streak during the 2018--2019 season, according to MCA Golf and statistics verified by Darrell Survey, golf's official equipment reporting authority. Mitsubishi Chemical Graphite Shafts has been widely recognized for their Diamana™ and TENSEI™ lines of premier, performance golf shafts available in both select OEM products and through authorized aftermaket dealers nationwide. The 2018-2019 season marked a new high with 18 total season event driver shaft wins. Mitsubishi Chemical has taken the top spot for driver shaft wins in the last 14 of 15 years.

"Week after week, we've watched our win count tick upward as the best players in the world rely on our products. It has been incredibly gratifying to see the hard work of our team validated by both the product performance itself and these end-of-season driver win statistics. It's a benchmark to be proud of, for sure," said Mark Gunther, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for MCA .

In addition to driver shaft wins, Mitsubishi Chemical shafts also supported over $144M in season win earnings, including season-ending bonuses; over double the nearest shaft competitor. Indeed, over 38% of all 2018-2019 season win earnings were supported by Mitsubishi Chemical branded driver shafts including wins in Augusta, Georgia, Farmingdale, New York, and Northern Ireland.

"You know, we've just recently released a new Fourth Generation Series shaft, Diamana ZF," noted Gunther, "and almost immediately it was put into play on tour. It's that kind of trust at an elite level that continues to drive our day-to-day commitment to produce the best performance golf shafts for all types of golfers. As we look to next season, we'll continue to introduce new products and technology in hopes of extending our record."
