Nippon Shaft’s N.S.PRO MODUS³ Tour 105 steel shafts were in the champion’s irons and wedges at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship Sunday at Phoenix Country Club in Phoenix, Arizona.

The 55-year-old former Masters champion from Fiji shot 22-under par 262 with rounds of 67-67-67-61 to win by four shots over his closest competitor and collect $440,000 for the victory. It was his third victory of the season and his fourth overall on PGA Tour Champions.

It was the 152nd victory for the MODUS³ brand and the 11th win in 2018 for the Tour 105 model.

“Nippon Shaft would like to congratulate the winner of the Charles Schwab Cup Championship on his convincing victory and his spectacular 10-under par final round 61,” said Hiro Fukuda, sales and marketing for Nippon Shaft. “We are very proud that our N.S.PRO MODUS³ Tour 105 has become one of the most popular shafts on Tour.”
