BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Aerotech Golf, maker of the No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf, congratulates Ariya Jutanugarn for achieving the No. 1 Rolex Ranking in professional women’s golf. Jutanugarn unseated Lydia Ko of New Zealand who held the No. 1 position for 85 consecutive weeks.
Jutanugarn is no stranger to success. In 2016, the young pro won the 2016 Rolex Player of the Year Award, 2016 Race to the CME Globe title and the 2016 LPGA Money Title — all in her second year on the LPGA Tour. In her short time on Tour, Jutanugarn has already amassed nearly $4 million in earnings, 36 Top 10s and six victories on the LPGA Tour.
“Ariya has demonstrated remarkable poise and confidence on the LPGA Tour, and she has played strong in every event,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “We offer our sincere congratulations on her achievement as being currently ranked No. 1 in the world.”
Aerotech Golf has achieved phenomenal success in its own right. Graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, are No. 1 on the PGA, Champions and LPGA Tours. Currently, the J108 graphite iron shaft and the well-known SteelFiber shafts are the most winning graphite iron shafts in the world.
SteelFiber shafts, for example, provide superior performance through innovative composite engineering that combines a high-modulus graphite core with 59 miles of steel fiber lacing the shaft surface. The shaft’s graphite core provides vibration dampening, increased clubhead speed and maximum distance, while the steel fibers produce optimum weighting for a solid feel at impact and add stability and control for pinpoint accuracy.
For the 2016 season, SteelFiber shafts delivered 20 wins on pro tours around the world as well as won the coveted CME Race for the Globe Trophy and 2016 Money Title on the LPGA Tour. Players with SteelFiber shafts routinely rank high on the PGA Money List, Official World Golf Rankings and the FedEx Cup Season Points. In 2013, for example, SteelFiber players ranked No. 2 and No. 3 in the FedEx Cup Season Points and ended overall as No. 3 and No. 5 on the PGA Money List. SteelFiber shafts won the highly prized FedEx Cup in 2012.
Aerotech Golf shafts are available as custom options with many nationally celebrated golf club manufacturers such as Callaway, Titleist, TaylorMade, Ping, Nike Golf, Bridgestone Golf, Wilson, Cleveland Golf, Miura, PXG, Srixon, KZG and Nakashima Golf. Aerotech Golf shafts are also available through professional golf clubfitters around the world. Aerotech Golf is a proud supporter of the Association of Golf Clubfitting Professionals (AGCP) and the International Clubmakers Guild (ICG).
