SteelFiber Shafts Bring Home the Bronze in Rio


 

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — For the first time since 1904, the sport of golf has returned to the Olympics and SteelFiber graphite shafts by Aerotech Golf were a game changer. SteelFiber i95 shafts delivered an amazing 8-under-63 on Sunday, and helped Team USA bring home a medal in the Men's Individual Golf competition.

"We're very proud of Team USA, and we express our heart-felt congratulations to the winner of the Bronze Medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "Success as a professional golfer is certainly an amazing accomplishment, but representing the United States and winning a medal at the Olympics is an entirely new level of achievement. The innovative technology of SteelFiber shafts has always been a game changer, and we're very proud that SteelFiber played a significant and winning role in the first Olympic golf competition in more than 100 years."

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 scored three wins on the PGA Tour and two victories on both the Champions and LPGA Tours. 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, Nakashima and Scratch 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).
