Aerotech Golf Finishes Strong at Wyndham and Rio


 

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Aerotech Golf, designer and manufacturer of the No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf, delivered a strong performance at the Wyndham Championship as well as the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. SteelFiber graphite iron shafts scored a T3 finish at the Wyndham Championship on the PGA TOUR and a T7 at the Women's Individual Golf Competition at the 2016 Olympics. Last week, SteelFiber shafts also helped Team USA bring home the Bronze Medal in the Men's Individual Golf Competition.

On the PGA Tour, the 2012 FedEx Cup champion played SteelFiber i95 shafts to score a 15-under par tie for third-place at the Wyndham Championship. Meanwhile, during last week's highly competitive women's golf in the Olympics, the 20-year-old Australian pro who won the Australian Women's Amateur title in back-to-back years (2013 and 2014) played SteelFiber i80 shafts to score a 69-67-73-67 (276) for a T7 finish.

"With SteelFiber in play during both Men's and Women's competitions at the Olympics, winning a Bronze Medal for Team USA and a strong performance at the Wyndham Championship, it's been a great week for SteelFiber shafts," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. ""SteelFiber graphite iron shafts are designed to allow players to perform their best, regardless of high winds or other difficult playing conditions. SteelFiber delivers stability and increases distance, while at the same time reducing the risk of injury and decreasing player fatigue."

SteelFiber shafts 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.

Last year, SteelFiber shafts scored three wins on the PGA Tour and two victories on both the Champions and LPGA Tours. 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.

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, Srixon, KZG, Nakashima and Scratch Golf. Aerotech Golf shafts are also available through professional golf clubfitters around the world.
