BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, the No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf, scored one victory and three Top Five finishes on three pro tours this weekend. Designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, SteelFiber shafts delivered a T5 at the BMW Championship on the PGA Tour, a second-place and T3 at The Evian Championship on the LPGA Tour; and the victory at the El Dorado Shootout on the Symetra Tour.
Playing SteelFiber i95 shafts in his irons and a i110 shaft in his gap wedge, the 2012 Players Championship winner and 2016 Olympic Bronze Medalist finished strong, shooting a 67-68-67-67 and hitting nearly 89 percent GIR in the fourth round, for a T5 finish at BMW Championship. On the LPGA Tour, SteelFiber i80 shafts scored solo second-place and a third-place tie at the Evian Championship. SteelFiber i80 shafts also took home the hardware on the Symetra Tour, winning the El Dorado Shootout and setting a new course record of 64.
“On the pro tour, new golf technology either proves itself as a true game-changer or it fades away as just another ‘also ran,’ and SteelFiber graphite iron shafts have once again delivered multiple Top Fives, including a victory, on three pro tours this weekend,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “Combining the stability of steel and the power of graphite, SteelFiber is a true game-changer. SteelFiber graphite iron shafts deliver stability and increase distance, while also reducing the risk of injury and decreasing player fatigue — benefits that allow golfers to play their best for longer, finish stronger and enjoy the game more.”
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 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.
