BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Aerotech Golf, maker of the No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf, wrapped up 2016 by taking a share of the top money at the Franklin Templeton Shootout on the PGA TOUR. One of the pros on the winning team played SteelFiber graphite iron shafts and the duo shot a 7-under 65 in better-ball play to seal the victory.
At the Franklin Templeton Shootout, one half of the winning team played SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in his irons to contribute to an impressive 28-under par combined score. Meanwhile at the MCB Tour Championship on the European Senior Tour, Spanish tour veteran delivered a T6 finish with SteelFiber i95 graphite iron shafts.
“Winning first-place at the Franklin Templeton Shootout is a great way to wrap up a record-breaking year for us,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “SteelFiber graphite iron shafts are changing the way players think about their iron performance, and deliver unique performance benefits, such as greater vibration dampening, reduced player fatigue, increased yardage and unprecedented accuracy. We’re looking forward to another great year in 2017.”
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 19 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.
