SteelFiber Grabs Top 10s at Meijer and U.S. Open


 

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, grabbed a share of Top 10 money at the Meijer LPGA Classic and the U.S. Open, the second major of the PGA season.

Playing SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in his irons, the 2012 FedEx Cup Champion shot an 8-under par at Erin Hills for a T9 finish at the U.S. Open Championship. On the LPGA Tour, the young pro from Thailand shot 67-66-67-66 18-under par with her SteelFiber i80 shafts for a fourth-place tie at the Meijer LPGA Classic. It was her second Top 10 of the year and the 12th Top 10 finish of her young career.

"Week after week, SteelFiber graphite iron shafts continue to make an impact on all the pro tours, and it's rewarding to see professionals and players at all skill levels embrace this game-changing technology," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "Unlike traditional steel shafts, SteelFiber shafts allow players to play their best for longer periods of time and finish stronger. SteelFiber's innovative performance benefits provide golfers with greater vibration dampening, reduced player fatigue, 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.

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.

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, PXG, Srixon, KZG and Nakashima Golf.
