BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, delivered Top 10 finishes on three top U.S. Tours this week. Three different SteelFiber shafts scored T7 at the RBC Canadian Open on the PGA Tour, a T5 at the Senior Open Championship on the Champions Tour, and a T8 at the Meijer LPGA Classic on the LPGA Tour.
Playing SteelFiber i95s in his Bridgestone irons, the winner of The Players Championship in 2012 scored a T7 at the RBC Canadian Open and is currently ranked 16th in the World Rankings. Meanwhile, former World No. 1 and 1992 Masters champion played SteelFiber i110s for a T5 at the Senior Open Championship; and two-time LPGA Tour winner scored a T8 at the Meijer LPGA Classic playing SteelFiber i80s.
“Consistently winning Top 10s on the all the top U.S. Tours demonstrates the performance benefits of SteelFiber shafts,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “Unlike traditional steel shafts which have largely gone unchanged for 80 years, SteelFiber graphite iron shafts deliver game-changing innovation that provides players with greater vibration dampening and reduced player fatigue, while also giving them the consistency and accuracy to play at their best for longer periods of time.”
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 seven wins — three on the PGA Tour and two each on the Champions and LPGA Tours. The previous tour season was equally successful with SteelFiber chalking up five wins on the PGA TOUR and two more on the Champions 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.
