Aerotech Golf Takes Second at Memorial


BELLINGHAM, Washington — For the third straight year, Aerotech Golf announces that its No. 1-selling SteelFiber composite iron shafts scored a Top 10 at the Memorial Tournament at the Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio. The second-place finish was the eighth Top 10 this year for SteelFiber, an innovative composite shaft design utilizing advanced composite technology.

The 11-year pro and second-place finisher played SteelFiber i95 taper tip constant weight shafts in his irons, and the Memorial marked his eighth Top 10 finish of the 2011 PGA TOUR season. With the strong finish, he moved from 14th to fourth in the FedExCup, and climbed from seventh- to sixth-place in the world rankings.

“The Memorial Tournament has a great history and this is the third year in a row we've finished in the Top 10 there, so our SteelFiber shafts are creating quite a history there too. 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 also giving a player the benefits of greater vibration dampening, reduced fatigue and increased clubhead speed. The result is a composite shaft alternative for irons that has proven itself year after year on the pro tours,” said Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary.

Last year, 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.

SteelFiber shafts deliver extreme performance through 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. Aerotech's SteelFiber technology is available in 75-, 85-, 95-, 110- and 125-gram iron shaft models as well as performance enhancing designs for hybrids, fairway woods and drivers.

An industry leader in innovative composite shaft technology, 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.
