BELLINGHAM, Wash. — One week after Aerotech’s SteelFiber shafts captured Top 10 money at the U.S. Open Championship, the No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf landed another Top 10 at the U.S. Women’s Open. SteelFiber shafts by Aerotech Golf delivered a T10 finish at the U.S. Women’s Open at Pinehurst No. 2.
“The U.S. Women’s Open is the longest-running tournament on the LPGA Tour, as well as being one of the LPGA’s five major championships, so we’re very excited to see SteelFiber shafts take a share of the Top 10,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “SteelFiber technology is changing the equipment landscape when it comes to iron shaft performance. SteelFiber reduces the risk of injury, lessens aggravation of existing injuries and decreases the fatigue associated with swinging heavier, harsher steel shafts, while simultaneously delivering stability and increased distance. It’s game-changing innovation.”
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 season, players with SteelFiber shafts in their irons won five events on the PGA TOUR and two events on the Champions Tour. Players with SteelFiber shafts also ranked No. 2 and No. 3 in the FedEx Cup Season Points at the end of the regular season. SteelFiber shafts were also No. 6 and No. 12 in FedEx Cup Playoff Points; and ended 2013 overall as No. 3 and No. 5 on the PGA Money List; Nos. 8 and 9 in official world rankings; and tied for first and fourth in Top 10 finishes.
