Aerotech Golf Wins ShopRite LPGA Classic
BELLINGHAM, Wash. SteelFiber graphite golf shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, continue to demonstrate the performance benefits of graphite iron shafts on the pro tours. This weekend, SteelFiber i95 shafts took top honors at the ShopRite LPGA Classic and yet another Top 10 at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship on the PGA Tour.
At the ShopRite LPGA Classic, the Swedish-born champion shot a 67-69-69 (205) to capture her first win of 2015 and her third victory playing SteelFiber i95s in her irons. Two other LPGA players at the event relied on SteelFiber shafts to deliver Top 10 finishes as well. Meanwhile on the PGA Tour, the 2012 FedExCup champion and seven-time PGA Tour winner followed up his second-place finish at the Crowne Plaza Invitational last week by scoring a T6 finish at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship on the PGA Tour with SteelFiber i95s in his irons.
"We congratulate this week's ShopRite LPGA Classic champion on a great victory," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. ""The increasing popularity of SteelFiber shafts among professional players is a testament to the unique performance benefits of these innovative graphite iron shafts. SteelFibers deliver true game-changing innovation that provides greater vibration dampening and reduces player fatigue, while also giving remarkable consistency and accuracy."
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 three wins on the PGA Tour and two victories on both the Champions and LPGA Tours. 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, Nakashima and Scratch Golf.
