BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, captured second-place at the HSBC Women’s Championship on the LPGA Tour, as well as a share of top money at the WGC Mexico Championship on the PGA Tour.
Playing SteelFiber J108s graphite shafts in her irons, the 20-year-old Bangkok-born pro scored sole possession of second-place with 67-68-69-66 (270) 18-under par 270 (67-68-69-66) at the HSBC Women’s Championship. The SteelFiber J-series is a private label iron shaft specifically developed for Aerotech Golf distributor and clubfitter Big Fish Golf of Singapore. Meanwhile, the 2012 FedEx Cup Champion finished strong in the final round of the WGC Mexico Championship, shooting a total 10-under par with SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in his irons. He claimed a T7 finish.
“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.
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.
