BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, landed three Top 10 money positions, including third-place, at the LPGA Australian Open on the LPGA Tour.
Coming off a second-place finish at the Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic, the 19-year-old LPGA rookie from Bangkok, took solo third-place, playing SteelFiber J108 private-label graphite shafts in her irons. The 2011 LPGA Rookie of the Year tied for fourth with SteelFiber i80s in her irons, while the two-time Australian Women’s Amateur champion (2013 and 2014) claimed a T7 finish with her SteelFiber shafts.
“Week after week, we’re seeing more SteelFiber graphite iron shafts in play on professional tours around the world, and the reason for its success is simple — enhanced player performance,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “SteelFiber’s innovative technology is a game-changer. These shafts incorporate high-modulus graphite and micro-thin steel fibers, a combination that allow players to increase yardage, reduce fatigue, and still maintain the stability and accuracy normally associated with steel shafts. SteelFiber is a proven winner on all three top U.S. tours.”
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.
In 2014, 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.
