SteelFiber Lands Top Fives on PGA and European Tours


 

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, garnered three Top 10 finishes on the PGA and European Tours this weekend. SteelFiber i95 and i110 shafts captured T3 and T6 finishes, respectively, at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions on the PGA Tour, while SteelFiber i110 shafts also delivered a fourth-place tie at the BMW SA Open on the European Tour.

The Top Five on the European Tour gained notoriety among some of the players, as the two-time U.S. Open champion achieved the T4 finish playing SteelFiber i110 graphite shafts in his irons for the first time on Tour.

"Unlike traditional steel shaft designs that have basically remained unchanged for more than 80 years, SteelFiber graphite iron shafts are a game-changer," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "The innovative SteelFiber technology delivers stability and increases distance, while they simultaneously reduce the risk of injury and decrease player fatigue. This combination allows players to play their best for longer periods of time and finish stronger."

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 2015 season, 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. Aerotech Golf shafts are also available through professional golf clubfitters around the world. Aerotech Golf is a proud supporter of the Association of Golf Clubfitting Professionals (AGCP) and the International Clubmakers Guild (ICG).
