BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Delivering the power of graphite and the stability of steel on pro tours, Aerotech Golf announces that its SteelFiber graphite iron shafts earned a T4 money position at the 2017 Masters Tournament. It’s the sixth Top 10 money position for Aerotech Golf shafts at The Masters since 2012.
Playing SteelFiber i95 shafts in his Bridgestone irons, the seven-time PGA Tour champion and 2012 Players Championship winner delivered an 5-under par at The Masters Tournament, and he shot the lowest score (67) in the fourth round of all the Top 10 players. Meanwhile, the 1992 Masters champion and a 17-time winner on the PGA and Champions Tours scored T18, playing SteelFiber i110 graphite iron shafts.
“We congratulate this Top Five player on his strong performance, particularly his stunning ace in the final round — only the 11th ace in 14 years on the par-3 16th hole,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “His performance on Sunday exemplifies everything that SteelFiber stands for. The innovative SteelFiber technology delivers stability and increases distance, while simultaneously reducing the risk of injury and decreasing player fatigue. This combination allows players to play their best for longer periods of time and finish stronger.”
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.
For the 2016 season, SteelFiber shafts delivered 20 wins on pro tours around the world as well as won the coveted CME Race for the Globe Trophy and 2016 Money Title on the LPGA 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. SteelFiber shafts won the highly prized FedEx Cup in 2012.
