The winner of the CME Group Tour Championship used Nippon Shaft’s N.S. PRO 950GH neo shafts in her irons and wedges to shoot a record 27-under par in the LPGA’s final event of the year at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Florida.
After finishing in the top 10 in two major championships earlier this season, the 34-year-old Korean was tied with another player at 25-under with four holes to play.
When her playing partner made a bogey on No. 16 and fell behind by one, she birdied Nos. 17 and 18 to win by one.
She made only two bogeys in the 72-hole tournament in which she shot 68-63-64-66—261. She also made an eagle 2 on No. 13, dunking an 80-yard pitch shot.
The champion received a record $2 million check for her victory, her fifth LPGA title, her first since 2019, and her first on American soil.
More than 500 players on the PGA Tour, LPGA Tour, European Tour, and Korn Ferry Tour use Nippon Shaft’s N.S. PRO and MODUS³ series steel shafts to help gain their desired distance, accuracy, and trajectory.
