Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management partners with Aerotech Golf

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- The Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management announces a new partnership with Aerotech Golf, the No. 1 composite iron shaft manufacturer on the PGA Tour. The agreement creates a unique ambassador program that introduces the PGA Tour's top composite iron shaft technology and performance benefits to the students and alumni of Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management.

As part of the agreement, Aerotech will provide composite iron shafts for the students' use within the university's custom fitting and golf club repair programs, as well as provide students and alumni with PGA Tour discounts on Aerotech shafts.

"Having up-to-date knowledge on the industry's most advanced equipment and technology is extremely important for golf professionals, and Aerotech Golf is a proven leader in innovative composite shaft technology," says John McMurry, campus vice president of Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management. "We're very pleased to incorporate Aerotech Golf shafts into our educational programs, and we sincerely appreciate Aerotech's support of Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management."

Aerotech Golf specializes in innovative composite technology, and has supplied shafts to many of world's top golf club manufactures, including Titleist, Nike, Bridgestone, Adams and Cleveland. Aerotech's SteelFiber shafts have been the No. 1 iron composite shafts on the PGA TOUR in 2010, 2011 and 2012, and are well-known for delivering the power of graphite and the stability of steel shafts. 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. While the shaft's graphite core provides vibration dampening, increased clubhead speed and maximum distance, the steel fibers produce optimum weighting for a solid feel at impact and add stability and control for pinpoint accuracy.
