Aerotech Lands Top Three in PLAYERS Championship


 

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, landed a T3 finish at THE PLAYERS Championship on the PGA Tour this weekend, as well as two Top 10s at the Rex Hospital Open on the Web.com Tour.

Playing SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in his Bridgestone irons, the 2012 PLAYERS Championship winner tied for third place this year with a 10-under 278 (70-68-75-65). Shooting 76.39 percent (55/72), the past champion was also tied for third best in greens in regulation. Meanwhile on the Web.com Tour, SteelFiber i125 shafts delivered second place at the Rex Hospital Opn and SteelFiber i110 shafts scored a T10 finish.

"SteelFiber's unique performance benefits are the reason it is the No. 1 graphite iron shaft on pro tours around the world," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "Unlike any other shaft in the game today, SteelFiber shafts provide players with greater vibration dampening and reduced fatigue, while also delivering consistency, accuracy and stability. SteelFiber is revolutionizing the way we play the game. It's a true game-changer."

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 2015, 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. Aerotech Golf shafts are also available through professional golf clubfitters around the world.
