BELLINGHAM, Wash. – The No. 1 composite iron shaft on the PGA TOUR, SteelFiber delivered the power of graphite and the stability of steel this weekend to win The Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio.
Playing SteelFiber i95 shafts in his Bridgestone irons, the 34-year-old Memorial Tournament champion closed with a 12-under-276 to win the Jack Nicklaus hosted event by a two-stroke margin. He moves to second in FedExCup Points and to No. 4 in the official world golf rankings.
The victory also marked his first multiple-win season of his PGA TOUR career, and he is now one of only two players who have won more than once this year on TOUR. He previously won the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship in February.
“We congratulate the winner of the Memorial Tournament on a great victory,” says Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary. “As a golf shaft designer and manufacturer, there’s no greater reward than to see professional tour players trust your equipment to produce winning results and to create unforgettable memories. SteelFiber shafts have introduced the unique playing benefits of composite iron shaft technology, and we’re proud that this game-changing innovation is changing the way golfers think about their irons’ performance.”
SteelFiber shafts are No. 2 and No. 3 in the FedEx Cup Standings; No. 2 and No. 3 in the 2013 PGA TOUR Money List; No. 4 and No. 6 in official world rankings; and have two players tied for No. 1 for Top 10 finishes on the PGA TOUR this year.
SteelFiber shafts have been the No. 1 iron composite shafts on the PGA TOUR in 2010, 2011 and 2012. 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. While the shaft’s graphite core provides vibration dampening, increased clubhead speed and maximum distance, the steel fibers produce optimum weighting for a solid feel at impact and add stability and control for pinpoint accuracy. Originally developed for irons the SteelFiber technology now enhances the performance of hybrids, fairway woods and drivers.
