The Nippon Shaft Modus series of irons posted its 227th victory on worldwide professional Tours on Sunday, as the champion used the company’s N.S.PRO MODUS³ Tour 120 shafts in his irons and wedges.
The 43-year-old Englishman who has used Nippon Shaft products for many years shot 17-under par with rounds of 67-70-64-70, to win by four at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in the United Arab Emirates. His 15th European Tour victory moved the Scottsdale, Arizona resident to No. 16 in the Official World Golf Rankings and enhanced his aspiration to play on this year’s European Ryder Cup team. He also received a winner’s cheque of €435,485.
“Nippon Shaft is excited to congratulate the winner of this year’s Omega Dubai Desert Classic,” said Hiro Fukuda, sales and marketing for Nippon Shaft. “He has long been one of the world’s top players and we are proud that he has chosen to trust Nippon Shaft products during the course of his career.”
More than 200 players on the PGA Tour, LPGA Tour, European Tour and Korn Ferry Tour use Nippon Shaft’s MODUS³ series steel shafts to help gain their desired distance, accuracy and trajectory.
Nippon Shaft products are available globally either as stock or custom shafts in many of the world’s top iron brands. Details of these can be found at www.nipponshaft.com.
