SteelFiber Captures Top Money at Bridgestone


 

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — The No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf, SteelFiber shafts by Aerotech Golf captured a share of Top 10 money on pro tours this past weekend. SteelFiber shafts scored a T3 finish at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and two Top 10s at the Barracuda Championship on the PGA Tour; as well as a second-place tie at the Swiss Seniors Open on the European Seniors Tour.

Playing SteelFiber i95 shafts in his Bridgestone irons, the seven-time PGA Tour champion and former Players Championship winner shot 69-72-70-66 (277) at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, and surged eight places on Sunday to score a T3 finish. Meanwhile, two players used SteelFiber i110 shafts in their hybrid clubs to land T5 and T9 finishes at the Barracuda Championship, and SteelFiber i95 shafts delivered a T2 at the Swiss Seniors Open on the European Seniors Tour.

"We're very excited about the ongoing success of SteelFiber graphite iron shafts as they delivered more Top 10 results this weekend," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "SteelFiber shafts are well-known for providing greater accuracy and increasing distance. But SteelFiber also provides some real game-changing performance benefits such as reducing the risk of injury, lessening aggravation of existing injuries and decreasing player fatigue. SteelFiber shafts allow golfers to play their best for longer, finish stronger and enjoy the game more."

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 2015 season, 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.
