- MRC GOLF Press Release - May 24, 2008

Carlsbad, CA (May 24, 2008) - After a thrilling sudden death play off at the 2008 AT&T Classic, a relative Tour newcomer breaks through with his first US TOUR victory using a driver powered by the Mitsubishi Rayon Diamana White Board shaft.

"Over the past 4 years, we are fortunate to have had many of the best players in the world consistently choose Mitsubishi Rayon shafts over our competition," said Hikaru Shiraishi, Vice President/COO of MRC GOLF. "Our tour strategy focuses on a simple quality over quantity approach."

"Tour players have access to a near unlimited amount of resources. They naturally gravitate to the products that perform," said Larry Bischmann, Mitsubishi Rayon's Director of North America. "As a result, tour players are becoming more aware of Mitsubishi Rayon, which is reflected in our 10 US TOUR wins with 8 different players in 20081."

Diamana White Board represents the third profile in the Diamana Series and is designed to deliver extreme stability through impact, reduced spin, and exceptional feel. Diamana White Board is offered in 63 gram, 73 gram, and 83 gram versions in multiple flexes at authorized dealers nationwide.
