Nippon Shaft’s MODUS³ series of steel shafts won its 23rd tournament of the season on Sunday, when the 28-year-old Englishman posted a four-shot victory at the BMW PGA Championship using N.S.PRO MODUS³ Tour 120 X-flex shafts in his irons.

The 2018 European Ryder Cup team member shot a total of 19-under par with rounds of 66-67-69-67 at Wentworth Golf Club in Surrey, England. It was his sixth worldwide victory (fifth on the European Tour) and his first since he won the PGA Tour’s Arnold Palmer Invitational in March of this year. The win was worth €974,457 and moved him to 10th on the Official World Golf Ranking.
