The Japan Open Golf Championship was held from October 12th to October 15th. Japanese pro, Yuta Ikeda, won 8-under par with the N1-CB Forged Iron marking his 3rd victory this season. Ikeda began using the iron since he became contract free last season.

Ikeda excelled with his iron shot throughout the tournament and he showed tenacity with his stroke, shaking off an inspired amateur player, to claim the Japan Open title for the first time in three years.
"This tournament is Japan’s biggest stage for golf and being even under lots of pressure throughout the week, I was able to continue confidently attacking during the big moments. I will continue to fight with the Graphite Composite Forged Iron and aim for the top prize money spot for the second consecutive year, so please give me your support.” He said on the conclusion of the event.
