Four In A Row — Aerotech Wins ShopRite LPGA Classic


 

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, continue to demonstrate the performance benefits of graphite iron shafts on the pro tours. This weekend, SteelFiber shafts took top honors at the ShopRite LPGA Classic, winning their fourth consecutive event on the LPGA Tour.

Playing SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in her irons, the Swedish-born champion shot a 64-68-64 (196) 17-under par to win the Shoprite LPGA Classic and chalk up her first victory of 2016. The victory gives her six total wins on the LPGA Tour and moves her to No. 15 in the Rolex Rating and No. 7 in the world CME Ranking.

SteelFiber shafts also delivered Top 10 money on the other pro tours this weekend. SteelFiber i95 shafts scored a T4 finish at the the Memorial Tournament on the PGA Tour. SteelFiber hybrid shafts and i110 shafts delivered a T4 and T8 finish respectively at the Principal Charity Classic on the Champions Tour. Internationally, SteelFiber i110 shafts claimed a T5 finish at the SSE Enterprise Wales Senior Open on the European Senior Tour as well as a T8 finish at the JGT Championship on the Japan Golf Tour.

"We congratulate this week's ShopRite LPGA Classic champion on a great victory," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. ""The growing popularity of SteelFiber shafts among professional players is a testament to the unique performance benefits of these innovative graphite iron shafts. SteelFiber shafts offers true game-changing innovation that delivers 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.

In 2015, 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.
