BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, captured a share of Top 10 money at the TOUR Championship, the final FedEx Cup playoff event which features an exclusive field exclusively of the PGA Tour’s Top 30 money leaders. SteelFiber graphite iron shafts delivered a T10 finish at the TOUR Championship, while SteelFiber i110s dished up a T6 finish at the Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach.
Playing SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in his Bridgestone irons, the seven-time PGA winner shot a 71-70-69-68 (278) for a share of 10th-place at the TOUR Championship. He wrapped up his season as 15th in the Official World Golf Ranking. Meanwhile, former World No. 1 player and Champions Tour favorite scored a T6 finish at the Nature Valley First Tee Open using SteelFiber i110 graphite shafts.
“The TOUR Championship is perhaps the most highly competitive events in golf, and we’re very excited to have SteelFiber shafts in play among the top money,” said Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary. “Unlike traditional steel shafts, SteelFiber graphite iron shafts actually provide greater vibration dampening and reduce a player’s fatigue, while simultaneously giving them consistency, accuracy and stability. The performance-enhancing combination is a real game-changer for players of all skill levels.”
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.
Last season, SteelFiber shafts delivered seven wins — three on the PGA Tour and two each on the Champions and LPGA Tours. The previous tour season 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.
