For the third consecutive week, golfers on two of the world’s major professional Tours posted victories using Nippon Shaft products, while Nippon Shaft players also enjoyed top-five finishes at the US PGA Championship.

On the European Tour, Andy Sullivan used N.S. PRO MODUS³ Tour 120 X flex steel shafts in his irons and wedges to win the English Championship by seven shots at the Hanbury Manor in Hertfordshire. His 27-under-par total came with rounds of 66, 62, 64 and 65.

On the LPGA Tour, the 27-year-old Californian Danielle King used Nippon Shaft’s popular N.S.PRO 950GH steel shafts in her irons and wedges to win the LPGA Marathon Classic in Ohio for her second consecutive win. The champion finished on 15 under par at Highland Meadows for her fifth LPGA Tour victory.

At the PGA Championship at Harding Park, players using Nippon Shaft products finished T2 and T4.

“Nippon Shaft could not be prouder of how well players using our shafts have been performing on golf’s biggest stages,” said Hiro Fukuda, Sales and Marketing for Nippon Shaft. “We are honoured that they have put their trust in our products just as all of our customers do.”
