BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber, the No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf, made a solid run for the coveted Claret Jug this past weekend at the Royal Birkdale Golf Club. SteelFiber graphite iron shafts scored a solo second-place at The 2017 OPEN Championship, as well as another Top 10 finish at the Marathon Classic on the LPGA Tour.
Playing SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in his irons and i110 shafts in his wedges, the 17-year veteran and seven-time winner on the PGA Tour shot a 65-71-66-69 (271) despite gusting winds, pounding rain and plunging temperatures. In addition, he scored first in number of birdies and tied for first in greens-in-regulation. Meanwhile, a 2017 LPGA rookie put on a show of her own at the Marathon Classic. She scored her third Top 10 of the year with SteelFiber i80 shafts in her irons.
“At this year’s British Open, high wind gusts, cold weather and wind-driven rain blowing sideways across the course presented players with some tough and unique challenges. However, SteelFiber graphite iron shafts demonstrated excellent performance, and we congratulate the runner-up on a well-played, exciting Open,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “SteelFiber shafts are designed to allow players to perform their best, regardless of difficult playing conditions. SteelFiber delivers stability, accuracy and increases distance, while at the same time reducing the risk of injury and decreasing player fatigue. It’s a 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.
Last year, 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.
