BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, delivered a share of the top money at the Allianz Championship on the Champions Tour. SteelFiber i95 graphite iron shafts and SteelFiber Hybrid shafts accounted for a third-place tie and two T6 finishes.
Playing SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in his irons, the T3-finisher surged 29 positions in the final round to end the day only one stroke off the lead with a 10-under 206 (74-68-64). He is currently ranked eighth in the 2016 Charles Schwab Cup. Two players, one with SteelFiber i95 shafts in his irons and the other with SteelFiber hybrid shafts, each took a share of sixth-place.
“The Allianz Championship provided more exciting final-round drama this weekend on the Champions Tour, and it was exciting to see SteelFiber shafts in the thick of it,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “SteelFiber shafts are well known for delivering the power of graphite and the accuracy of steel, and players on all the pro tours are embracing this game-changing innovation to maximize their performance. By combining high-modulus graphite and micro-thin steel fibers, SteelFiber shafts deliver stability and increase distance, while simultaneously decreasing player fatigue and reducing the risk of injury.”
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.
