Aerotech Shafts Earn Top Money at U.S. Open Championship


BELLINGHAM, Washington — Aerotech Golf announces that its SteelFiber composite iron shafts earned a Top 10 finish at the U.S. Open Championship, delivering an enviable share of the $1.35 million winnings. As the second major of the year, the U.S. Open was a perfect venue for SteelFiber shafts to claim their sixth Top 10 placement of the year, and demonstrate the unique playing benefits of composite technology.

Manufactured by Aerotech Golf, the industry leader in innovative composite shaft technology, SteelFiber composite shafts were played by a former United States Men's Amateur Golf Champion and All-American for Georgia Tech, who tied for sixth-place at the U.S. Open, playing SteelFiber i95 taper tip constant weight shafts in his irons. The strong finish moved him to eighth on the 2010 PGA TOUR Money List.

"Historically, this is our best finish in a major event, but it is even more rewarding for us to see how more and more players on the pro tours are witnessing how SteelFiber technology provides the playing benefits of both graphite and steel. Unlike traditional shaft designs, SteelFiber combines a high-modulus graphite core with micro-thin steel fibers to create an extremely stable design that delivers consistency of steel and the playability benefits of graphite," says Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary.

SteelFiber shafts feature a high-modulus graphite core and 59 miles of steel fiber covering the surface of each shaft, providing golfers with the power of graphite and the stability of steel. The shaft's graphite core provides vibration dampening, increased clubhead speed and maximum distance, while the steel fibers produce a optimum weighting for a solid feel at impact and add stability and control for pinpoint accuracy.

On the PGA Tour this year, Aerotech shafts have delivered Top 10 finishes at the SBS Championship, Bob Hope Classic, World Golf Championships-CA Championship, Shell Houston Open, Memorial Tournament and the U.S. Open.
Specializing in uniquely engineered, performance-enhancing golf shafts, Aerotech has supplied shafts to such renowned golf club manufactures as Cleveland Golf, Adams Golf, Fenwick, Srixon, Lynx, Zevo and Pure Spin among many others.
