BELLINGHAM, Wash. — The No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf, SteelFiber shafts by Aerotech Golf took a share of Top 10 money this weekend on the PGA and LPGA Tours. SteelFiber i95 shafts scored a T8 finish at the Northern Trust Open on the PGA Tour and a T9 at the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open on the LPGA Tour.
Playing SteelFiber i95 shafts in his Bridgestone irons, the 26th ranked golfer in the world and former Players Championship winner shot 69-69-69-67 (274) at the Northern Trust Open, and surged 11 places on Sunday to score a T8 finish. Meanwhile on the LPGA Tour, four-time LPGA champion also played SteelFiber i95 shafts for a T9 at the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open.
“Tour performance week after week is the proving ground for real game-changing technology, and SteelFiber graphite iron shafts delivered more Top 10 results this weekend,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “SteelFiber shafts are well-known for combining the stability of steel and the power of graphite. Accuracy and distance are keystone benefits of SteelFiber. But part of the real performance benefits of SteelFiber are the ones less tangible — reducing the risk of injury, lessening aggravation of existing injuries and decreasing player fatigue. These are SteelFiber benefits that allow golfers to play their best for longer, finish stronger and enjoy the game more.”
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.
