Aerotech Golf Grabs Top Money on Champions and LPGA Tours
BELLINGHAM, Wash. SteelFiber graphite shafts by Aerotech Golf claimed a share of top money on the LPGA Tour and Champions Tour this weekend, winning three Top 10s. SteelFiber i80s took a share of second-place at the Volunteers of America North Texas Shootout on the LPGA Tour, while SteelFiber hybrid shafts tied for fourth-place, and SteelFiber i110s and hybrid shafts combined for a T6 finish at the Insperity Invitational on Champions Tour.
Playing SteelFiber i80 graphite shafts in her irons, the South Korean two-time LPGA champion shot a 69-67-70-66, 12-under-par for her 11th Top 10 finish on the LPGA Tour. Meanwhile on the Champions Tour, two players relied on SteelFiber shafts to deliver T4 and T6 finishes, and one moved to No. 1 ranking for the Charles Schwab Cup.
"We're very pleased with the ongoing success of all the different SteelFiber models on the pro tours," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "Whether for irons, hybrids or wedges, SteelFiber shafts deliver unique performance benefits unlike traditional steel shafts. SteelFiber's game-changing technology gives stability and consistency while also giving golfers greater vibration dampening, reduced player fatigue and increased distance."
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.
In 2014, SteelFiber shafts delivered 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.
