SteelFiber Shafts Win THE PLAYERS Championship


Golf’s most innovative composite shaft manufacturer, Aerotech Golf announces that its SteelFiber composite iron shafts won THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass.

The 12-year veteran played SteelFiber i95 shafts in his Bridgestone irons to win THE PLAYERS Championship by two strokes. He shot a 13-under 275 and earned $1.71 million, the single largest payoff in golf. The win moved him to a career-best No. 5 in the world ranking, and to No. 3 in the Ryder Cup standings. SteelFiber composite shafts incorporates a high-modulus graphite core with micro-thin steel fiber lacing the shaft surface — a combination that provides players with the power of graphite and the stability of steel.

“We congratulate this weekend’s winner at THE PLAYERS Championship. Competing and winning in a field that includes the best of the best is a phenomenal feat, and we’re very proud the champion chooses to play SteelFiber shafts in his irons. SteelFiber is the only technology of its kind on the PGA TOUR, and the fact that SteelFiber shafts have either won or scored so well during high-profile tournaments this year is making a lot of people take notice,” says Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary.

SteelFiber shafts were the No. 1 composite irons shafts on the PGA Tour in 2010 and 2011, and scored two Top Three finishes in the 2011 PGA TOUR PlayOffs. SteelFiber shafts were also played by two of the Top Eight players in the final 2011 FedExCup standings.

SteelFiber shafts combine graphite and steel fiber to seamlessly create a perfect blend of power and stability. The shafts deliver extreme 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.

Aerotech Golf specializes in innovative, performance-enhancing golf shafts, and has supplied shafts to such renowned golf club manufactures as Nike Golf, Cleveland Golf, Adams Golf, Miura, Srixon, Lynx, KZG, Nakashima, Scratch Golf, Zevo and Pure Spin among many others.
