NIPPON SHAFT WINS at WOMEN’S OPEN

CARLSBAD, Calif. (August 23, 2021) – Nippon Shaft’s MODUS³ Series of steel shafts were used Sunday (August 22) by the winner of the LPGA AIG Women’s Open at Carnoustie in Scotland, giving the company its 248th major tour victory since the series was introduced.

The 34-year-old Swedish star used N.S.PRO MODUS3 Tour 105 S flex steel shafts in her wedges to shoot a 12-under par 72-hole total to win her third major women’s championship by one stroke. She recorded rounds of 71-71-65-69—276 on the classic links and earned $870,000. It was her ninth LPGA victory.
