SteelFiber Wins Second Straight Safeway Open
BELLINGHAM, Wash. The No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf, SteelFiber shafts by Aerotech Golf delivered the power of graphite and stability of steel this week, winning the Safeway Open on the PGA Tour for the second straight year.
Last year's Safeway Open champion provided an encore performance, winning his second consecutive Safeway Open playing SteelFiber i110 shafts in two hybrid clubs. He finished strong with a 65-67-72-69 (15-under par) to win his third PGA TOUR victory. Meanwhile, playing SteelFiber i80 graphite shafts in her irons, the 20-year-old from Perth, Australia, landed a solo fifth-place at the Symetra Tour Championship. She finished No. 2 on the Symetra Tour money list, collected three victories, received the Gaelle Truet Rookie of the Year Award and earned her LPGA Tour card for 2018.
"We congratulate the two-time Safeway Open champion for another great victory in Napa Valley," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "SteelFiber shafts delivery shot consistency and increased distance and, unlike traditional steel shafts, allow players to play their best for longer times and to finish strong. SteelFiber shafts reduce the risk of injury, decrease player fatigue and deliver game-changing results for players of all skill levels."
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.
In 2017, 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.
