CARLSBAD, Calif. – Nippon Shaft’s MODUS³ series of steel shafts won its 23rd tournament of the season Sunday (Oct. 11) 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—269 at Wentworth Golf Club, Virginia Waters, Surrey, England.
