BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, delivered a win at the Guardian Retirement Championship on the Symetra Tour and dominated the Top 10 money at the Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf on the Champion Tour. SteelFiber i95 and i110 shafts combined for an impressive third-place finish, three T4 finishes and a 10th-place.
Playing SteelFiber shafts in her irons, the young Symetra Tour competitor cashed in on her first professional win at the Guardian Retirement Championship at Sara Bay this weekend. Meanwhile, SteelFiber i95 and i110s shafts took five of the 11 Top 10 money positions, the lowest of which was a five-under (63-46-49) 158 for sole possession of third place.
“We’re very excited by this weekend’s results on tour,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “Unlike traditional steel shafts that have basically remained unchanged for 80 years, SteelFiber graphite iron shafts are a real game-changer. The innovative SteelFiber technology delivers stability and increases distance, while at the same time reducing a player’s risk of injury, lessening aggravation of existing injuries and decreasing player fatigue. These combined performance benefits allows players of all ages and skill levels to play their best for longer periods of time.”
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.
