BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, delivered Top 10 finishes on an international stage this weekend. SteelFiber shafts took a share of the top money on opposite sides of the globe, scoring a second-place tie at the European Senior Masters in Coventry, United Kingdom, and a T10 at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Taiwan Championship held in Taipei.
Playing SteelFiber i110 graphite shafts in his irons and wedges, the former European Ryder Cup captain shot a 70-72-73 (215) — narrowly missing the lead by one stroke — for a T2 finish at the European Senior Masters. Meanwhile on the LPGA Tour, the three-year American pro who recently took second-place at The Evian Championship played SteelFiber i80 shafts in her irons for a T10 finish at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Taiwan Championship.
“When we first introduced SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, we knew fiber composite engineering would revolutionize shaft performance at all levels of the game, so it’s incredibly rewarding to see SteelFiber’s success on pro tours around the world,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “Steel shaft designs today have basically remained unchanged for nearly 90 years, and SteelFiber graphite iron shafts are the next evolution to greater player performance. SteelFiber shafts produce greater vibration dampening, reduce fatigue and increase clubhead speed for greater distance while simultaneously maintaining the consistency, solid feel and stability normally attributed to steel shafts. It’s a true game changer.”
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 2016 season, SteelFiber shafts delivered 20 wins on pro tours around the world as well as won the coveted CME Race for the Globe Trophy and 2016 Money Title on the LPGA 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. SteelFiber shafts won the highly prized FedEx Cup in 2012.
