CARLSBAD, Calif. – A 37-year-old PGA Tour veteran used Nippon Shaft products to win a six-man playoff today in the PGA Tour’s season finale at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina.
The Aiken, South Carolina native hit his approach shot to three feet on the second playoff hole (No. 18) and sank his eagle putt to win the Wyndham Championship and $1,152,000 in prize money. He used N.S.PRO MODUS³ Tour 120 TX flex steel shafts in his irons and N.S.PRO MODUS³ Wedge 125 steel shafts in his wedges to shoot 15-under par in regulation and secure his fourth PGA Tour victory.
It was the 247th victory for Nippon Shaft’s Modus Series of steel shafts, developed and designed specifically for professionals and single-digit handicappers.
“Nippon Shaft is excited to congratulate the winner of this year’s Wyndham Championship,” said Hiro Fukuda, sales and marketing for Nippon Shaft. “We are pleased that he has confidence that he can rely on our Modus Series products as he competes against the best players in the world every week.”
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.
