BELLINGHAM, Wash. — SteelFiber shafts by Aerotech Golf captured Top 10 money at the Ricoh Women’s British Open on the LPGA Tour, scoring a T7 and T9 among some of the best women golfers in the world.
Playing SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in her irons, the Swedish-born LPGA veteran shot 69-72-73-69 (283) — for a T7 finish. The event marks the 46th Top 10 finish of her career, and she has now has more than $5.23 million in winnings on the LPGA Tour. Meanwhile, the Australian rookie sensation, who achieved Number One ranked amateur status in 2014, played SteelFiber i80s in her irons to earn a T9. The finish is her fifth Top 10 is less than a year as a pro.
“The performance benefits of SteelFiber shafts offer unique advantages to women players so it’s exciting to see the growing popularity of SteelFiber on the LPGA Tour as well as the other pro tours,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “SteelFiber shafts incorporate high-modulus graphite and micro-thin steel fibers, a combination that allow players to increase yardage, reduce fatigue, while still maintaining the stability and accuracy normally associated with steel shafts. SteelFiber innovation is a game-changer.”
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 tour season 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.
