BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, the No. 1 graphite iron shafts on pro tours, delivered an exciting come-from-behind win at the LOTTE Championship on the LPGA Tour this weekend. Designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, SteelFiber shafts captured first- and fourth-place as well as a T10 finish for three Top 10s at the event.
The 19-year-old, 2015 LPGA rookie played SteelFiber i80 graphite shafts in her irons to shoot a strong final round 64 that gave her a one-stroke victory at the LOTTE Championship. SteelFiber i80 shafts also captured fourth-place, while SteelFiber J108 graphite iron shafts claimed its third Top 10 of the year with a T10 finish. The SteelFiber J-series is a private label iron shaft specifically developed for Aerotech Golf distributor and clubfitter Big Fish Golf of Singapore. Meanwhile, SteelFiber i95 graphite iron shafts scored a T9 finish at the RBC Heritage on the PGA TOUR.
“We congratulate this week’s LPGA champion for her victory at the LOTTE Championship. It was an impressive and exciting final round comeback,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “SteelFiber shafts delivery stability and increased distance but, unlike traditional steel shafts, SteelFiber also decreases player fatigue, reduces the risk of injury, and lessens aggravation of existing 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.
Last year, 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.
