BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Aerotech Golf, maker of the No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf, topped the charts in 2016 by more than doubling its number of PGA TOUR wins and Top 10s from 2015. This year, SteelFiber graphite iron shafts are again right on track for a record-breaking year and scored two Top 10 finishes at the recent Farmers Insurance Open.
The 2012 FedEx Cup Champion and winner of the 2016 Farmers Open Championship played SteelFiber graphite shafts in his irons to score a T9 money position at the Farmers Insurance Open. In addition, the 19th ranked FedEx Cup player finished strong, jumping 15 positions in the fourth round to finish with a T9 as well.
“Last year was a record-breaking year for SteelFiber shafts and for Aerotech Golf. We’re excited to begin 2017 with more Top 10 finishes,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “Well known for delivering the power of graphite and the accuracy of steel, SteelFiber graphite iron shafts are changing the way players think about their iron performance. By combining high-modulus graphite and micro-thin steel fibers, SteelFiber shafts deliver stability and increase distance, while simultaneously decreasing player fatigue and reducing the risk of injury.”
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.
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.
