BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, delivered Top 10 money on four pro tours this weekend, including a solo second-place finish at the U.S. Women’s Open. SteelFiber i95 graphite iron shafts played decisive roles on the LPGA Tour, European Senior Tour and Japan Golf Tour, while SteelFiber Hybrid shafts took top money on the Champions Tour.
Playing SteelFiber i95 shafts in her irons, the Swedish-born LPGA veteran and 2009 Ladies European Tour Rookie of the Year shot a 68-74-73-67 (282) 6-under par to push the tournament into a sudden death playoff. Meanwhile, SteelFiber i95 shafts delivered a T5 at the Japan PGA Championship and a T10 finish at the WINSTONgolf Senior Open on the European Senior Tour, and SteelFiber Hybrid shafts delivered a T4 at the Dicks Sporting Gods Open on the Champions Tour.
“We congratulate the runner-up in the U.S. Women’s Open for her strong finish and professional handling of the penalty controversy, as well as the other players who captured Top 10 money this weekend playing SteelFiber shafts,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “Unlike traditional steel shafts which have largely gone unchanged for 80 years, SteelFiber graphite iron shafts deliver game-changing innovation that enhances player performance on many levels. SteelFiber shafts provide greater vibration dampening and reduce player fatigue, while also delivering consistency, accuracy and stability. SteelFiber is game-changing technology.”
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.
During the 2015 season, 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.
