BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, delivered the shot consistency, accuracy and distance to win the RICOH Women’s British Open on the LPGA Tour. The victory marks the first major win for SteelFiber shafts.
Playing SteelFiber J108s graphite shafts in her irons, the 20-year-old Bangkok-born pro scored her first major victory with a 16-under 272 (65-69-66-72), winning the RICOH Women’s British Open. The SteelFiber J-series is a private label iron shaft specifically developed for Aerotech Golf distributor and clubfitter Big Fish Golf of Singapore. In addition to the win, SteelFiber i95 shafts chalked up a T5 finish at the Women’s British Open.
“We congratulate the Women’s British Open champion on her first major win,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “Professional golfers rely on extreme shaft performance week after week, shot after shot. The fact that more pros than ever before are playing SteelFiber graphite iron shafts is a real testament to the accuracy, consistency and stability of SteelFiber shafts.”
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 2015, 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.
Aerotech Golf shafts are available as custom options with many nationally celebrated golf club manufacturers such as Callaway, Titleist, TaylorMade, Ping, Nike Golf, Bridgestone Golf, Wilson, Cleveland Golf, Miura, Srixon, KZG and Nakashima Golf.
