CARLSBAD, Calif. (November 22, 2021) – It was the first PGA Tour victory for the champion of the RSM Classic in Saint Simon’s Island, Georgia, (Nov. 21) and the 260th win on a major world golf tour for Nippon Shaft’s MODUS³ Series of steel shafts.

The 30-year-old winner used N.S.PRO MODUS3 Tour 125 X flex steel shafts in his irons to help fashion a tournament record tying total of 22-under par with rounds of 64-65-67-64—260 at the Seaside Course at Sea Island Resort.

It was his third top 5 finish in six starts in the young 2021-22 wraparound season.
