BELLINGHAM, Wash. — The No. 1 graphite iron shaft in golf, SteelFiber shafts by Aerotech Golf scored a share of Top 10 money at the U.S. Open Championship. Last year’s No. 3-ranked FedEx Cup player used SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in his irons and gained a T9 finish at the always challenging Pinehurst course.
“For more than 120 years, the U.S. Open has thrilled golf enthusiasts as the greatest open event in golf, and we’re very excited to have SteelFiber shafts in play at the highest level of the game,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “Golfers competing in the U.S. Open have played the same basic steel iron shaft design for more than 80 years, but SteelFiber’s game-changing technology is setting a new standard. Compared to traditional steel shafts, SteelFiber shafts provide players with greater vibration dampening and increased clubhead speed, while simultaneously giving them the solid feel, stability and consistency they normally attribute to steel 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 2013, 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.
