A 29-year-old Englishman used Nippon Shaft N.S.PRO MODUS³ Tour 120 X-flex shafts in his irons on Sunday to secure victory at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.
The champion shot 18-under par for the tournament at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club in Abu Dhabi, UAE. He fired a bogey-free 66 in the final round, giving him a 4-shot edge over his closest competitor.
The victory was worth €1.097 million and moved him to No. 5 in the Official World Golf Rankings. It was his sixth European Tour title to go with his one PGA Tour victory.
