SteelFiber shafts earn two top 10 finishes at Players Championship

BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- Delivering the power of graphite and the stability of steel, SteelFiber composite iron shafts chalked up two Top 10s at the THE PLAYERS Championship from TPC Sawgrass. Two players, including the No. 5 ranked player in the world, shot 7-under par playing Aerotech SteelFiber i95 shafts in their irons.

SteelFiber's composite iron shaft technology continues to provide unique performance benefits every week on the professional tours. SteelFiber shafts are No. 2 and No. 5 in the FedEx Cup Standings; No. 2 and No. 5 in the 2013 PGA TOUR Money List; No. 5 and 12 in official world rankings; and No. 1 for Top 10 finishes on the PGA TOUR.

"TPC Sawgrass is one the top ranked courses in the United States and it demands accuracy with every shot, so we are very pleased to see more of the world's top golfers trusting their iron play to SteelFiber shafts," says Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary. "The composite technology that has made SteelFiber so popular is truly one-of-a-kind on the PGA Tour. SteelFiber technology brings together the best performance benefits of graphite, such as greater vibration dampening, more power and reduced fatigue, with the consistency and accuracy benefits of steel. There's no better example of superior performance and game-changing innovation than SteelFiber."

SteelFiber shafts have been the No. 1 iron composite shafts on the PGA TOUR in 2010, 2011 and 2012. 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. Originally developed for irons the SteelFiber technology now enhances the performance of hybrids, fairway woods and drivers.
