“Nippon Shaft is proud that two of America’s top players chose to use our steel shafts in their irons,” said Hiro Fukuda, sales and marketing for the Japanese club maker. “We congratulate both players and wish them continued success in 2015.”
The winner at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational entered the final round with a 5-stroke lead and was crowned the winner after the second playoff hole for her third career victory. She played the N.S. PRO V90 in her irons and has been a long time user of Nippon Shaft products since her debut in 2003.
The winner at the OHL Classic came from three shots back on Sunday, closing with a 5-under 66 for a one-shot win, for his third PGA TOUR title. He has played the N.S. PRO PROTO ST irons shafts since April 2014. The second place and T9 finishers also play the N.S. PRO PROTO ST in their irons.
