The victory marks the second consecutive win for SteelFiber shafts at the RBC Canadian Open. BELLINGHAM, Wash. — The No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf, SteelFiber shafts designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf won the RBC Canadian Open this week in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. SteelFiber i95 graphite iron shafts are well-known for delivering the power of graphite and the stability of steel, and are becoming a popular, high-performance alternative for pros around the world.
This week’s winner on the PGA TOUR surged ahead from a three-stroke deficit in the final nine holes to win the RBC Canadian Open, playing SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in his irons. Other players trusting SteelFiber i95 shafts also took a share of fourth- and seventh-place. Meanwhile on the other pro tours, a veteran player with eight major career victories finished T10 with a SteelFiber i110 in his wedge. Plus, on the LPGA Tour, the Swedish team finished second at the International Crown with one of the tour’s top players using SteelFiber i95 shafts in her irons.
“We congratulate this year’s champion at the RBC Canadian Open on his inspiring victory. With five birdies in the final nine holes, it was an exciting win,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “SteelFiber graphite iron shafts are a tour-proven alternative to the old steel shaft designs, and they are providing players with performance advantages that they simply cannot get with steel shafts. SteelFiber’s game-changing technology produces greater vibration dampening, reduces fatigue and increases clubhead speed more than traditional steel shafts while still maintaining the consistency, solid feel and stability normally attributed to steel shafts. It’s a the best of both worlds.”
During the 2013 season, players with SteelFiber shafts in their irons won seven events — five on the PGA TOUR and two on the Champions Tour. Players with SteelFiber shafts also ranked No. 2 and No. 3 in the FedEx Cup Season Points at the end of the regular season. SteelFiber shafts were also No. 6 and No. 12 in FedEx Cup Playoff Points; and ended 2013 overall as No. 3 and No. 5 on the PGA Money List; Nos. 8 and 9 in official world rankings; and tied for first and fourth in Top 10 finishes.
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.
