BELLINGHAM, Wash. — The No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf, SteelFiber shafts by Aerotech Golf won the Fiji International by a record-breaking margin. Despite extremely windy conditions at Natadola Bay Golf Club in Fiji, the nine-point margin of victory was the largest this season on the European Tour.
One week after being the only undefeated player at the 2016 Ryder Cup, the 2012 FedEx Cup champion captured his 12th professional title as well as his first international win, playing SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in his Bridgestone irons. He is currently ranked 23rd in the world. Meanwhile on the Champions Tour, SteelFiber shafts (hybrids and wedges) landed two Top 10s.
“Winning the Fiji International by nine strokes while under such adverse conditions was a great demonstration of the performance benefits of playing SteelFiber shafts,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “SteelFiber shafts delivery stability and increased distance but, unlike traditional steel shafts, SteelFiber also reduces the risk of injury, lessens aggravation of existing injuries and decreases player fatigue. It’s game-changing technology that is allows players to play their best for longer and finish strong.”
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.
