SteelFiber shafts score victory at Sanderson Farm Championship

BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- Delivering the power of graphite and the stability of steel, SteelFiber shafts by Aerotech Golf captured the win the Sanderson Farm Championship. Playing SteelFiber i110 shafts (X-flex) in his Cleveland 588 irons (3-PW), the champion picked up his first PGA TOUR title since 2007. He shot a strong 268 (69-65-67-67) and birdied the first playoff hole for the victory.

The Sanderson Farm Championship marks the fourth PGA Tour win of the 2013 season for SteelFiber shafts. In addition to the victory, SteelFiber shafts also picked up an extra Top 10 finish with a T9 money position.

"SteelFiber shafts have been the No. 1 iron composite shafts on the PGA TOUR going on four straight years, and we congratulate this week's winner on a hard-fought and well-deserved victory," says Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary. "His choice of the SteelFiber i110 is perfect for a player looking to go a little bit lighter than the typical steel shafted irons. The SteelFiber i110 allows them to pick up some yardage while maintaining a low penetrating ball flight and avoid changing the overall feel they are accustomed to from playing steel shafts. The player will also benefit from the reduced vibrations of a composite shaft which results in fewer injuries and less fatigue during the round."

SteelFiber's composite iron shaft technology continues to provide unique performance benefits every week on the PGA TOUR. Currently, SteelFiber shafts are No. 3 and No. 4 in the FedEx Cup Standings; No. 3 and No. 4 in the Money List; Nos. 6 and 7 in official world rankings; and tied for second and fourth in Top 10 finishes.

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.
