SteelFiber Shafts Score Two Tour Wins


 

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, scored two more tour wins and a Top 10 money position this weekend. At the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic, SteelFiber J108 graphite iron shafts delivered victory and SteelFiber i80 graphite iron shafts claimed a T6 finish, while SteelFiber i95 graphite iron shafts grabbed the win on The Legends Tour.

Playing SteelFiber J108s graphite shafts in her irons, the 20-year-old Bangkok-born pro recorded her first career victory, winning the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic. The young champion jumped 11 spots to No. 21 on the Rolex Rankings, and she became the first player from Thailand to win on the LPGA Tour. The SteelFiber J-series is a private label iron shaft specifically developed for Aerotech Golf distributor and clubfitter Big Fish Golf of Singapore.

Meanwhile, a Canadian pro played SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in her irons to win the Self-Regional Women's Health Classic on the Legends Tour. With the victory, the champion now has four LPGA wins and four wins on The Legends Tour.

"We congratulate both of these champions on their terrific wins," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "Whether you're a rookie or a seasoned veteran, SteelFiber graphite iron shafts deliver unique performance benefits unlike any other shaft in golf. SteelFiber shafts offer stability and shot consistency, and they provide greater vibration dampening, reduce player fatigue, and increase clubhead speed and ball 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.

Last year, 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.
