BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts by Aerotech Golf delivered a Top 10 finish this weekend at the fourth and final major of the 2015 PGA TOUR. SteelFiber scored a T7 at the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits on the Straits Course in Kohler, Wis, as well as a sizeable share of the $10 million purse.
The 2012 Players Championship winner and seven-time champion on the PGA TOUR shot a 68-72-68-68 12-under 276 at the this year’s event, playing SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in his Bridgestone irons.
“The PGA Championship is one of the most competitive and widely respected tournaments on the tour, so we’re obviously very excited to have SteelFiber shafts in the Top 10,” said Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary. “Whether for irons, hybrids or wedges, SteelFiber shafts deliver unique performance benefits unlike traditional steel shafts. SteelFiber graphite shafts provide the stability and consistency that most players associate with steel shafts, but the benefits of SteelFiber goes far beyond that. SteelFiber’s game-changing innovation also gives golfers 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.
In 2014, SteelFiber shafts delivered seven wins — three on the PGA Tour and two each on the Champions and LPGA Tours. The previous tour season 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.
