Aerotech Takes Second on PGA and Champions Tours
BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Aerotech Golf, maker of the No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf, demonstrated again this week the performance benefits of playing graphite iron shafts. SteelFiber shafts tied for second-place at the Humana Challenge on the PGA Tour, as well as claimed second- and third-place at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship on the Champions Tour
Playing SteelFiber i95 shafts in his Bridgeston irons, the No. 10 ranked player in the world and former Players Championship winner shot a 21-under-par (65-64-71-67) and tied for second in number of eagles (2) during the tournament. Meanwhile on the Champions Tour, two former Masters champions (1998 and 1992) playing SteelFiber i110 shafts in their irons claimed sole possession of second- and third-place, respectively. The 1992 Masters champion was also first in greens-in-regulation, scoring 81.48 percent, with his SteelFiber-shafted irons.
“Winning these top money positions on the PGA and Champions Tours this week is like a one-two punch, and we’re excited about the growing popularity of SteelFiber graphite iron shafts on the pro tours,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “Unlike traditional steel shafts which have largely gone unchanged for 80 years, SteelFiber graphite iron shafts deliver game-changing innovation that enhances player performance on several levels. Not only do SteelFiber shafts give greater vibration dampening and reduce player fatigue, they provide the consistency, accuracy and stability to compete at the highest levels of the game.”
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 2014, 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.
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.
