The man who has tallied the most Ryder Cup points of all-time used Nippon Shaft products in the Netherlands on Sunday to record the company’s third consecutive European Tour victory.

The 39-year-old Spaniard used N.S.PRO MODUS³ Tour 130 X-flex steel shafts in his irons and wedges to shoot 18-under par 270 with rounds of 68-67-66-69 at The International course in Amsterdam.

Nippon Shaft also won the Porsche European Open last week in Hamburg and the Omega European Masters in Switzerland the week before that.

It was the 16th European Tour victory for the champion, who jumped to 13th from 23rd on the all-important Race to Dubai standings. He won €333,330 for his first-place finish.

It was the 197th worldwide professional victory for the MODUS³ shaft series and the 43rd MODUS³ victory in the 2018-19 season. The MODUS³ Tour 130 has six wins this season.

“Nippon Shaft congratulates the winner of the KLM Open on his outstanding victory in Amsterdam,” said Hiro Fukuda, sales and marketing for Nippon Shaft. “Nippon Shaft is very proud to be the shaft of choice for such a phenomenal player.”

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.
