BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, won the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on the PGA Tour. The victory marked the 21st tour win for the innovative SteelFiber design.
Playing SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in his irons, the Pebble Beach champion shot an impressive 22-under 265 (64-67-67-67) to claim his seventh PGA TOUR victory and move him up to fifth in FedExCup Rankings. The winner made just one bogey during the week, and is only the fifth winner on TOUR in the past 10 years to make one or fewer bogeys during an event.
“We’ve very excited with the results at the AT&T Pebble Beach, and we congratulate the champion on a tremendous victory,” 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 2014, SteelFiber shafts delivered seven wins — three on the PGA Tour and two each on the Champions and LPGA Tours. The previous tour season 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.
