BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Aerotech Golf, maker of the No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf, scored Top 10 money on the PGA Tour and two international tours. SteelFiber i95 graphite iron shafts delivered a T3 at the TX Civil & Logistics WA PGA Championship on the Australasian Tour, a T4 at the Kansai Open Golf Championship on the Japan Tour, and a T9 at the AT&T Byron Nelson on the PGA Tour.
Playing SteelFiber i95s graphite shafts in his irons, the 2012 Players Championship winner and 2016 Olympic Bronze Medalist shot 66-71-67-69 (273) 7-under par at the Byron Nelson for his third Top 10 of the season. Meanwhile on the other side of the globe, two players on the Japan and Australasian tours played SteelFiber i95 shafts for large shares of Top 10 money.
“Performance in golf shafts, especially on the pro tours, is the proving ground for game-changing technology, and SteelFiber graphite iron shafts placed in the Top 10 on three tours this weekend,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “SteelFiber shafts combine the stability of steel and the power of graphite. But SteelFiber shafts also reduce the risk of injury, lessen aggravation of existing injuries and decrease player fatigue. These benefits allow golfers to play their best for longer, finish stronger and enjoy the game more.”
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.
During 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.
