SteelFiber shafts poised for strong showing at Presidents Cup

BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- The No. 1 composite iron shaft on the PGA TOUR, SteelFiber shafts will have strong representation at this week's President's Cup. Two American team players will trust SteelFiber i95 shafts in their irons, and the United States team captain plays SteelFiber i110 shafts. Both SteelFiber models have had great success this year delivering the power of graphite and the stability of steel on the PGA and Champions Tours.

"The Presidents Cup is a dramatic match play event that brings together the best golfers in the world, tough competition and national pride, so it's an excellent venue to showcase the unique performance benefits of SteelFiber composite shafts," says Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary. "SteelFiber is the only technology of its kind on the professional tours. SteelFiber shafts provide the consistency of steel, while simultaneously giving the feel and vibration-dampening benefits of graphite. I'm excited to see them in play this week and we're all looking forward to an exciting Presidents Cup event."

On the PGA TOUR, SteelFiber shafts ended the regular season as No. 2 and No. 3 in the FedEx Cup Season Points; No. No. 6 and No. 12 in FedEx Cup Playoff Points; and are currently No. 3 and No. 5 on the PGA Money List; Nos. 8 and 9 in official world rankings; and tied for first and fourth in Top 10 finishes. Also this year, SteelFiber garnered five wins on the PGA Tour and one win on the Champions Tour.

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.
