SteelFiber i95 shafts capture top 10 finish at U.S. Senior Open

BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- For the second consecutive major event on the Champions Tour, SteelFiber shafts by Aerotech Golf have delivered top money. Playing SteelFiber i95 shafts in his irons, the 53-year-old Tiawanese player with 34 professional wins to his credit shot 4-under-par 276 (68-75-65-68) for a sixth-place tie at the 34th U.S. Senior Open Championship. He also tied for the best finish at the Senior Open among all the international players.

SteelFiber shafts are the No. 1 composite irons shafts on the PGA and Champions Tours, and have a growing reputation for delivering the power of graphite and stability of steel. Currently on the Champions Tour, SteelFiber players are Nos. 3 and 8 in the Charles Schwab Cup's Top 10 rankings. On the PGA Tour, SteelFiber shafts are currently No. 2 and No. 3 in the FedEx Cup Standings; No. 2 and No. 3 in the Money List; Nos. 6 and 8 in official world rankings; and tied for second and fourth in Top 10 finishes. SteelFiber shafts have been the No. 1 iron composite shafts on the PGA TOUR in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

"With more and more professionals turning to SteelFiber shafts, composite shaft technology for irons could quite possibly be the fastest growing trend in golf equipment on the PGA and Champions Tours today," says Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary. "SteelFiber's composite technology delivers the stability and consistency players typically appreciate with steel shafts while at the same time giving greater vibration dampening and reducing a player's fatigue."

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.

Aerotech Golf shafts are available as custom options with many nationally celebrated golf club manufacturers such as Titleist, TaylorMade, Nike Golf, Bridgestone Golf, Cleveland Golf, Miura, Srixon, KZG, Nakashima and Scratch Golf. Aerotech Golf shafts are also available through professional golf clubfitters around the world. Aerotech Golf is a proud supporter of the Association of Golf Clubfitting Professionals (AGCP) and the International Clubmakers Guild (ICG).
