Aerotech Shafts Score at Justin Timberlake Open


BELLINGHAM, Wash. — High-performance Aerotech SteelFiber composite shafts delivered an attention-grabbing performance at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas, Nev. Within days of switching to Aerotech SteelFiber shafts in his irons, this weekend's runner-up delivered his best finish since his win at the 2002 Honda Classic and marked a 36-hole course record at TPC Summerlin by opening with a pair of 63s.

The second-place finisher played Bridgestone J36 Prototype irons (4-PW) assembled with Aerotech SteelFiber i95 taper tip constant weight shafts. A two-time, first-team All-American for Georgia Tech and former United States Men’s Amateur Golf Champion, the runner-up had previously missed cuts in his last seven starts but his accuracy and consistency at the Justin Timberlake Open vaulted him to 67th on the PGA Tour money list.

"SteelFiber shafts have quickly established a reputation for consistency and power among professional golfers and we're extremely excited to see success stories like what we saw at the Timberlake Open," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "More and more pros are recognizing the feel and performance benefits of this new composite technology. Players can now take advantage of the lighter weights and vibration-dampening characteristics of a composite, while still retaining the control and stability of steel."

Delivering the power of graphite and the stability of steel on professional tours, SteelFiber shafts feature a high-modulus graphite core and more than 59 miles of steel fiber covering the surface of each shaft, providing golfers with the power of graphite and the stability of steel. While the shaft's graphite core provides vibration dampening, increased clubhead speed and maximum distance, the steel fibers produce a optimum weighting for a solid feel at impact and add stability and control for pinpoint accuracy. Originally developed for irons the SteelFiber technology now enhances the performance of hybrids, fairway woods and drivers.
