Nippon Shaft’s MODUS³ series won its fifth tournament of the season on Sunday when 36-year-old Australian Marc Leishman came from four shots behind to win the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, California.
The champion played Nippon Shaft’s N.S.PRO MODUS³ Tour 130 X-flex steel shafts in both his irons and his wedges and shot a seven-under-par 65 in the final round to win by a stroke and pick up a first prize worth $1.35 million.
“We are very excited to extend our congratulations to the tournament champion, who has been playing Nippon Shaft products for many years,” said Hiro Fukuda, marketing executive for Nippon Shaft. “It is very special to have a winner who is the model of calm and cool throughout the most challenging parts of the tournament.”
Players using Nippon Shafts were also victorious at the previous week’s The American Express in California on the PGA Tour and at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai in Hawaii. More than 200 players on the PGA Tour, European Tour and Korn Ferry Tour use Nippon Shaft’s MODUS³ series steel shafts to help gain their desired distance, accuracy and trajectory.
