Nippon Shaft won its fourth women’s major of the year at last week’s Evian Championship in France.

Angela Stanford used Nippon Shaft’s N.S. PRO 950GH steel shafts in her irons and wedges to fire a three-under 68 in the final round to come from five shots back and seal the victory - her maiden major title.

It has been an incredibly successful year for the shaft company on all tours, with Keegan Bradley using Nippon Shaft’s N.S.PRO MODUS³ model to win the PGA Tour’s BMW Championship. The PRO MODUS³ was also used to claim three of this year’s senior men’s majors – the Regions Tradition, the Senior British Open and the Constellation Senior Players Championship.
