BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, delivered victory at the Swiss Seniors Open on the European Senior Tour this weekend.
Using SteelFiber i110 graphite iron shafts in his irons, the Austrian pro scorched the Swiss course shooting a 66-64-66. The win was his first victory on the European Senior Tour, and moves him to third place in the Senior Tour Order of Merit. The champion has finished second and first in his last two tournaments.
“We congratulate this week’s champion at the Swiss Seniors Open on a great, well-deserved victory,” said Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary. “The SteelFiber i110s have been a particular favorite among some senior players as they are well suited for players looking for a little lighter weight than the typical steel shafts. The i110s increase distance and deliver a low penetrating ball flight, while still maintaining the overall feel players are accustomed to with steel shafts. In addition, SteelFiber shafts reduce vibrations and fatigue, allowing a player to be at their peak performance longer.”
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.
