SteelFiber Wins First and Third at Blue Bay LPGA
BELLINGHAM, Wash. SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, the No. 1 graphite iron shafts on pro tours, delivered the win this weekend at the Blue Bay LPGA event on the LPGA Tour. Designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, SteelFiber shafts captured first- and third-place at Blue Bay as well as Top 10 money on the European Senior Tour.
The 19-year-old, 2015 LPGA rookie played SteelFiber i80 graphite shafts in her irons to shoot 65-67-73-70 (275) and take the victory at the Blue Bay LPGA. SteelFiber J108 graphite iron shafts also claimed solo third-place at Blue Bay and is currently No. 1 on the LPGA Money List. The SteelFiber J-series is a private label iron shaft specifically developed for Aerotech Golf distributor and clubfitter Big Fish Golf of Singapore. Meanwhile on the European Senior Tour, SteelFiber i110 graphite iron shafts captured a T6 finish at the Senior Italian Open.
"We congratulate this week's LPGA champion for her victory at Blue Bay LPGA," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "SteelFiber shafts deliver stability and increased distance but, unlike traditional steel shafts, SteelFiber also decreases player fatigue, lessens aggravation of existing injuries and reduces the risk of new injuries. It's game-changing technology that allows players to play their best for longer and finish strong."
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 have delivered 18 wins on pro tours around the world. 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.
