BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, captured the victory at the Sanderson Farms Championship on the PGA Tour this weekend. In addition to the PGA Tour win, SteelFiber shafts collected three Top 10s at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship on the Champions Tour and two more Top 10s at the Toto Japan Classic on the LPGA Tour.
The Sanderson Farm champion shot a 5-under 67 on Monday to surge to the top of the leaderboard, earning $738,000 and 300 FedExCup points. Throughout the rain-soaked event, the champ shot an 18-under par (69-66-68-67) in his first PGA Tour victory. Meanwhile at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, SteelFiber i110 shafts earned T4 and T9 finishes and SteelFiber hybrid scored a T8. At the Toto Japan Classic, SteelFiber i80 shafts delivered solo fourth-place and the SteelFiber j108 took fifth.
“We congratulate the Sanderson Farms champion on his first-ever PGA Tour victory. It’s a great achievement, especially considering he only received his PGA Tour Card last month,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “The champ plays the SteelFiber i110 graphite shafts in his irons, which are a little lighter weight than typical steel shafts. The i110s deliver a low penetrating ball flight and increase distance, while at the same time reducing vibrations and fatigue which often impacts player performance.”
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.
Last year, SteelFiber shafts delivered seven wins — three on the PGA Tour and two each on the Champions and LPGA Tours. The previous tour season 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.
