Nippon Shaft Posts 2nd Consecutive Win on the European Tour

CARLSBAD, CA – The Nippon Shaft Modus series of irons posted its 227th victory on worldwide professional tours Sunday (Jan. 31) as the champion used the company’s N.S.PRO MODUS³ Tour 120 shafts in his irons and wedges.

The 43-year-old Englishman who has used Nippon Shaft products for many years shot 17-under par 271 with rounds of 67-70-64-70 to win by four at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic at Emirates Golf Club in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. His 15th European Tour victory moved the Scottsdale, Arizona resident to No. 16 in the Official World Golf Rankings and enhanced his aspiration to play on this year’s European Ryder Cup team.

“Nippon Shaft is excited to congratulate the winner of this year’s Omega Dubai Desert Classic,” said Hiro Fukuda, sales and marketing for Nippon Shaft. “He has long been one of the world’s top players and we are proud that he has chosen to trust Nippon Shaft products during the course of his career.”

Go Farther with the 2021 Z-STAR Series from Srixon

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – SRIXON®, a global leader in golf ball technology and innovation, is proud to announce the launch of the seventh generation Z-STAR Series golf ball. Srixon’s Z-STAR and Z-STAR XV are available in Pure White™ and Tour Yellow™ and officially launch in North America on February 26, 2021.

The seventh-generation Z-STAR features a 0.6mm cover that is thicker than previous generations for enhanced spin and control around the greens. When paired with the revolutionary FastLayer Core that dramatically increases ball speed to deliver maximum distance, the new generation offers unparalleled feel.

For 2021, the new Z-STAR XV features a reformulated inner core for heightened resilience, leading to improved ball speed and distance without sacrificing feel. This allows players to push their distance to the limit and take advantage of high levels of greenside control.

Both of the new Z-STAR Series golf balls feature new Spin Skin technology with Slide-Ring Material (SeRM), a urethane compound that coats the cover of every Z-STAR Series golf ball. By taking unprecedented levels of shearing force without breaking its molecular bonds, Spin Skin with SeRM is able to dig deep into your wedge and iron grooves, dramatically increasing friction and maximizing spin for more control and more stopping power on every shot.

The all-new Z-STAR Series golf balls are the only in the world to use Slide-Ring Material, providing a competitive advantage that cannot be matched.

The 338 Speed Dimple Pattern on each Z-STAR Series golf ball improves overall aerodynamics for better flight performance, even in the toughest wind conditions, with drivers, woods, and irons.

Key Innovations Inside Z-STAR Series Golf Balls:

  • New FastLayer Core: The FastLayer Core starts soft in the center and gradually becomes firm around its edge, giving high-speed players exceptional feel and enhanced ball speed for maximum distance.
  • New Spin Skin with SeRM: A new coating with flexible molecular bonds digs deep into wedge and iron grooves, maximizing spin for more control and more stopping power.
  • New 338 Speed Dimple Pattern: The 338 Speed Dimple Pattern offers less drag and more lift to boost overall distance, while flying straight even in the toughest wind conditions.
