BELLINGHAM, Wash. — The new PGA Tour season is underway, and already SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, are collecting a share of the top money. SteelFiber i95 shafts scored two Top 10s this weekend at the Hero World Challenge on the PGA Tour and at the Golf Nippon Series JT Cup on the Japan Golf Tour.
Playing SteelFiber i95s graphite shafts in his irons, the 2012 Players Championship winner and 2016 Olympic Bronze Medalist recorded a T9 finish at the Hero World Challenge. Meanwhile, an Australian player captured a share of eighth-place at the Golf Nippon Series JT Cup, playing his SteelFiber i95 shafts.
“It’s great to see professional tour players from all around the world rely on our SteelFiber graphite iron shafts,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “With more PGA Tour wins than any other graphite iron shaft in golf, the SteelFiber i95 is the perfect transition from out-dated steel shafts into a lighter weight graphite shaft. The SteelFiber allows a player to see a good improvement in distance and vibration reduction, while maintaining pinpoint accuracy and incredibly consistent distance control.”
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.
For 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.
