Nippon Shaft’s MODUS³ series of steel shafts won its 23rd tournament of the season on Sunday, when the 28-year-old Tyrrell Hatton 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 and 67 at Wentworth Club in Surrey. It was his sixth worldwide victory and his first since he won the PGA Tour’s Arnold Palmer Invitational in March earlier this year. The win was worth €974,457 and moved him up to 10th in the world rankings.

“Nippon Shaft is thrilled to congratulate to the winner of this year’s BMW PGA Championship, one of the premier events on the European Tour,” said Hiro Fukuda, sales and marketing for Nippon Shaft. “He truly is a world-class player and we are proud he has chosen Nippon Shaft products to help him pursue his career dreams.”

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
