Aerotech Golf Scores Top 10 at Byron Nelson Championship


BELLINGHAM, Washington — Aerotech Golf, an industry leader in innovative composite shaft technology, announces that its SteelFiber composite iron shafts were among the Top 10 money winners at the Byron Nelson Championship in Irving, Texas. Playing SteelFiber i95 taper tip constant weight shafts in his irons, the 11-year pro garnered his seventh Top 10 finish of the 2011 PGA TOUR season and secured his position as the seventh-best golfer in the world, according to Official World Golf Ranking.

“The strong winds and heat made playing conditions extremely difficult, but the composite design of the SteelFiber shafts delivered consistency and accuracy while at the same time minimizing fatigue throughout the tournament. Unlike other shafts on tour, SteelFiber shafts feature a high-modulus graphite core laced with micro-thin steel fiber — a unique combination that provides a solid feel at impact while simultaneously giving a player the benefits of greater vibration dampening, reduced fatigue and increased clubhead speed,” said Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary.

The Aerotech SteelFiber shafts deliver extreme performance through innovative composite engineering that combines a high-modulus graphite core with 59 miles of steel fiber lacing the shaft surface. While the shaft's graphite core provides vibration dampening, increased clubhead speed and maximum distance, the steel fibers produce optimum weighting for a solid feel at impact and add stability and control for pinpoint accuracy. SteelFiber technology is available in several models and enhances the performance of hybrids, fairway woods and drivers.

In 2010, Aerotech Golf's SteelFiber shafts were in the irons of the No. 1 player on the PGA TOUR Money List, No.1 in Scoring Average, No. 1 in All-Around ranking, No. 1 in number of Top 10 finishes and No. 2 in FedExCup standings.

Aerotech Golf specializes in uniquely engineered, performance-enhancing golf shafts, and has has supplied shafts to such renowned golf club manufactures as Nike Golf, Cleveland Golf, Adams Golf, Miura, Srixon, Lynx, Nakashima, Scratch Golf, Zevo and Pure Spin among many others.
