BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, collected two more Top 10s this weekend on the pro tours. SteelFiber J108 graphite iron shafts delivered a solo fourth-place at the ANA Inspirational on the LPGA Tour, and SteelFiber i95 graphite iron shafts scored a T6 finish at the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic on the ChampionsTour.
Playing SteelFiber J108s graphite shafts in her irons, the 20-year-old Bangkok-born pro scored her second Top 10 of the 2016 season with a 10-under par 278 (69-71-67-71), winning fourth-place at the ANA Invitational, the first LPGA major event of the season. The SteelFiber J-series is a private label iron shaft specifically developed for Aerotech Golf distributor and clubfitter Big Fish Golf of Singapore.
Meanwhile, 27-year pro and former PGA Tour champion played SteelFiber i95 shafts in his irons to grab a share of sixth-place at the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic.
“For equipment choices, the three factors that determine a pro golfer’s success rate are performance, performance, performance. So, we’re very exciting by the increasing popularity of the SteelFiber line among pro players,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “SteelFiber graphite iron shafts introduced game-changing innovation that give unique performance benefits unlike any other shaft in golf. Not only do SteelFiber shafts provide stability and shot consistency, but they deliver greater vibration dampening, reduce player fatigue, and increase clubhead speed and ball distance.”
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.
In 2015, 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.
