BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber shafts by Aerotech Golf delivered the power of graphite and the stability of steel to win the Honda LPGA Thailand. With the victory, SteelFiber shafts have won on all three top tours in the United States and are the undisputable No. 1 graphite iron shafts on the PGA, Champions and LPGA Tours.
The 26-year-old Swedish player led the Honda LPGA Thailand wire-to-wire and fended off many big name players on Sunday to earn her third LPGA title. She shot 66-72-67-68 (273) for a 15-under-par and a two-stroke victory, playing SteelFiber i95 shafts in her irons. In addition to the champion, a fifth-place tie finisher played SteelFiber i80 shafts in her 18- and 20-degree hybrid clubs.
“This is the first LPGA win for SteelFiber shafts, so it’s unquestionably a big milestone for Aerotech,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “SteelFiber technology is a game-changer. These shafts incorporate high-modulus graphite and micro-thin steel fibers, an innovative combination that allow players to increase yardage, reduce fatigue, and still maintain the stability and accuracy normally associated with steel shafts. It’s a true innovation that is now a proven winner on all three top U.S. tours.”
In 2013, players with SteelFiber shafts 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. In 2013, players with SteelFiber shafts in their irons won five events on the PGA TOUR and two events on the Champions Tour.
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.
Aerotech Golf shafts are available as custom options with many nationally celebrated golf club manufacturers such as Titleist, TaylorMade, Nike Golf, Bridgestone Golf, Cleveland Golf, Miura, Srixon, KZG, Nakashima and Scratch Golf. Aerotech Golf shafts are also available through professional golf clubfitters around the world.
