July 13, 2015, San Diego, CA – Grandura™ Golf, makers of Grandura Golf Shafts powered by BST Nano Carbon®, has hired Christian Cervantes as Sports Marketing Manager specializing in working with PGA Tour professionals.

Cervantes is a 15-year veteran in the golf industry with experience working with professionals on the PGA and LPGA Tours and in sales and business development capacities with various equipment manufacturers. Most recently, he was the Sports Marketing PGA/LPGA Tour Representative at Adams Golf Equipment. Cervantes is currently preparing for the introduction of the new line of Grandura Golf Shafts at the PGA Tour Quicken Loans National tournament July 30 – Aug 2, at Robert Trent Jones GC in Gainesville, VA.

“We are excited to have Christian as part of our team and representing our brand on the PGA Tour,” said Tim Gillis, Business Development Manager, Grandura Golf. “Christian’s extensive knowledge and experience in the golf industry and his established relationships with PGA Tour players make him a valuable asset for us as we launch our shafts and grow our brand.”

Prior to his most recent position with Adams Golf, Cervantes also held sales management positions in the golf industry with Nicklaus Golf Equipment, Tommy Armour Golf/Ram Golf and Never Compromise. He graduated from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona with a major in Recreation and Leisure Services and a minor in Business Management.

In development for over a year, Grandura Golf Shafts benefit from BST Nano Carbon’s unique understanding of carbon fiber and nano materials, inspiring the brand’s tagline, FINALLY, SOMETHING DIFFERENT. The shafts are made in the U.S.A. at the company’s 65,000 square-foot facility in San Diego, California, allowing for complete control over the design and manufacturing process and for quick turn-around for tour-specific shaft requests.

Grandura Golf Shafts are geared towards launch and spin and are offered in five design models. The series is color coded, Green is low launch low spin, Red is mid launch with three spin options and Blue is higher launch with mid spin.
