SteelFiber Chalks Up Win at 3M Championship


 

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, delivered a dramatic playoff victory at the 3M Championship on the PGA Champions Tour this weekend. SteelFiber shafts are well-known as the No. 1 graphite iron shaft on pro tours, but SteelFiber hybrid shafts are chalking up wins as well.

Playing a SteelFiber hybrid shaft, the champion shot a blistering 63 on Sunday and then eagled the first playoff hole to take the victory. The win marks the second title on the PGA Champions Tour for the 52-year-old veteran.

"We congratulate the winner of the 3M Championship on a terrific victory and flawless example of how to finish strong," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "Whether played in hybrids or irons, SteelFiber shafts deliver stability and increase distance, while simultaneously reducing risk of injury, lessening aggravation of existing injuries and decreasing fatigue. These combined benefits give players of all ages and skill levels the ability to play their best for longer periods of time and to finish strong."

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 scored 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. Aerotech Golf shafts are also available through professional golf clubfitters around the world. Aerotech Golf is a proud supporter of the Association of Golf Clubfitting Professionals (AGCP) and the International Clubmakers Guild (ICG).
