Players using Nippon Shaft products won on both sides of the Atlantic on Sunday (May 30), as Nippon Shaft’s Modus series racked up its 235th and 236th victories on global professional Tours.

The European Tour winner in Denmark successfully defended his title at the Made in Himmerland tournament, where he used Nippon Shaft’s N.S.PRO MODUS³ Tour 120x steel shafts in his irons and wedges. The Austrian shot 21-under par to win by five and earn a cheque of €229,480.

Meanwhile, the winner of the Evans Scholars Invitational outside Chicago used N.S.PRO MODUS³ Tour 130 steel shafts in his irons and N.S.PRO MODUS³ Wedge 125 steel shafts in his wedges to prevail in his second straight Korn Ferry Tour victory on Sunday. He won last week at the Kansas City stop on the KFT.

The 24-year-old who played his college golf at Wake Forest dominated the field with an 18-under par total for a five-stroke victory margin. He had held at least a share of the lead in his last eight rounds on the Korn Ferry Tour and earned $108,000 for his latest victory, which moved him up to No. 14 on the KFT rankings. The top 25 at the end of the season earn a spot on next season’s PGA Tour.

“Nippon Shaft is excited to congratulate the winners of this year’s Made in Himmerland tournament and the Evans Scholars Invitational,” said Hiro Fukuda, sales and marketing for Nippon Shaft.

“We are pleased that both players relied on Nippon Shaft products and will be watching them closely as they continue to compete on the golf’s most elite Tours.”

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
