CARLSBAD, Calif. (June 14, 2021) – Nippon Shaft’s Modus Series notched it 240th and 241st victories since it debuted on pro tours a decade ago, winning on the European and LPGA tours.
A European Tour veteran from Northern Ireland won the inaugural Scandinavian Mixed Hosted by Henrik & Annika in Gothenburg, Sweden using N.S.PRO MODUS3 Tour 120 steel shafts in his irons.
It was the first European Tour victory for the 37-year-old golfer who finished at 17-under par, with rounds of 70-67-70-64—271. His 8-under final round featured eight birdies and an eagle along with two bogeys. He earned €145,160 or $166,000.
Meanwhile, a 26-year-old rookie from Finland won her first tournament at the LPGA Mediheal Championship using N.S.PRO MODUS3 Tour 105 steel shafts in her irons. Trailing by two shots when she started her final round, she took the lead on front nine at the foggy Lake Merced Golf Club in Daly City, Calif., shooting a 6-under 30, then birdied the 18th to win by two. She shot 14-under par 274 with rounds of 71-69-69-65, earned $225,000 and put her name in the hat for LPGA Rookie of the Year.
