BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, added multiple Top 10s on the season, capturing a share of the top money at the The Memorial Tournament on the PGA Tour, as well as the ShopRite LPGA Classic on the LPGA Tour and the JGT Championship on the Japan Tour.
Playing SteelFiber i95 shafts in his irons and i110 shafts in his wedges, the 2012 Players Championship winner and seven-time PGA champion shot a 9-under par for a T4 finish at The Memorial Tournament on the PGA Tour. Meanwhile, SteelFiber i80 shafts chalked up two T7 finishes at the ShopRite LPGA Classic, and SteelFiber i95 shafts clinched a T5 at the JGT Championship, the second Top Five on the Japan Tour in three weeks.
“The results at this weekend’s Tour events, both here at home as well as in Japan, were great demonstrations of the performance benefits of playing SteelFiber shafts,” says Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary. “SteelFiber shafts combine the stability of steel and the power of graphite, and they are the Number One graphite iron shafts on the PGA, Champions and LPGA Tours. Unlike traditional steel shafts, which hasn’t seen a design breakthrough in more than 80 years, SteelFiber graphite iron shafts reduce the risk of injury, lessens aggravation of existing injuries and decreases player fatigue. It’s game-changing technology that is proving itself on pro tours all around the world.”
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.
During the 2016 season, SteelFiber shafts delivered 20 wins on pro tours around the world as well as won the coveted CME Race for the Globe Trophy and 2016 Money Title on the LPGA 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. SteelFiber shafts won the highly prized FedEx Cup in 2012.
