SteelFiber Wins U.S. Senior Amateur Championship


 

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — The No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf, SteelFiber shafts captured the victory at the 2014 U.S. Senior Amateur Championship, one of the most prestigious and competitive amateur golf events in the world.

A runner-up in the 2010 Senior Amateur, this year's champion played SteelFiber graphite shafts in his irons and finally claimed possession of the coveted Frederick L. Dold Trophy for the next year. The 61-year-old champion was the No. 60 seed in the match-play bracket, and is the lowest seed to win the title since 1992, when the USGA first began seeding players at the Senior Amateur.

"We congratulate the new U.S. Senior Amateur champion on a terrific victory. He showed us all how determination and perseverance, matched with the right equipment, can produce game-changing results," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "SteelFiber graphite irons shafts deliver a unique combination of performance benefits that are unlike any other shafts in golf today. As a graphite shaft, SteelFiber technology gives players greater vibration dampening and reduces their fatigue. However, SteelFiber shafts also incorporate micro-thin steel fibers throughout the length of the shaft which give them the stability and consistency players typically expect when playing steel. This is game-changing innovation."

In 2013, players using SteelFiber graphite iron shafts won seven pro events — five on the PGA TOUR and two on the Champions Tour. Players with SteelFiber shafts also 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.

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 Callaway, Titleist, TaylorMade, Ping, Nike Golf, Bridgestone Golf, Wilson, Cleveland Golf, Miura, Srixon, KZG, Nakashima and Scratch Golf. Aerotech Golf shafts are also available through professional golf clubfitters around the world.
