Aerotech Golf Wins Farmers Insurance Open


 

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, topped the money lists on the PGA and LPGA Tours this weekend. SteelFiber i95 delivered victory at the Farmers Insurance Open on the PGA Tour, while SteelFiber i95 shafts also tied for second at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic on the LPGA Tour.

Playing SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in his irons, the Farmers Insurance Open champion delivered an incredible 3-under par on Sunday despite hard rain and high winds, and was the only player to shoot under par in the final round. The champion's 6-under 282 resulted in his eighth PGA Tour victory. Meanwhile on the LPGA Tour, the Swedish-born LPGA veteran played SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in her irons for a T2 finish at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic. The event marked her 49th Top 10 finish on the LPGA Tour, totalling more than $5.49 million in winnings.

"We congratulate this weekend's champion at the Farmers Insurance Open for his incredible play during some very tough conditions," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "SteelFiber graphite iron shafts are designed to allow players to perform their best, regardless of high winds or other difficult playing conditions. SteelFiber delivers stability and increases distance, while at the same time reducing the risk of injury and decreasing player fatigue."

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 2015 season, SteelFiber shafts delivered seven wins — three on the PGA Tour and two each on the Champions and LPGA Tours. The previous year was equally successful with SteelFiber chalking up five wins on the PGA TOUR and two more on the Champions 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.

Aerotech Golf shafts are available as custom options with many nationally celebrated golf club manufacturers such as Callaway, Titleist, TaylorMade, Ping, Nike Golf, Bridgestone Golf, Wilson, Cleveland Golf, Miura, Srixon, KZG and Nakashima Golf.
