BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, scored Top 10 money at the 2016 Masters Tournament this weekend in Augusta, Ga. SteelFiber i95 shafts delivered a T10 finish in the PGA Tour’s first major of the year.
Playing SteelFiber i95 shafts in his irons, the 2012 FedEx Cup champion and No. 3 ranked FedEx Cup player for 2016 fired off a 72-72-77-70 (291) for a T10 finish at Augusta National.
“The Masters Tournament is one of the most legendary events in golf and features the world’s finest golfers competing, so it’s very exciting to see SteelFiber shafts in play,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “SteelFiber’s innovative design is well-known for delivering the power of graphite and the stability of steel. The shaft reduces the risk of injury and decreases the fatigue associated with swinging heavier, harsher steel shafts, while simultaneously delivering stability and increased 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.
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 and Nakashima Golf.
