SteelFiber shafts deliver two more Top 10 finishes on PGA Tour

BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- The No. 1 graphite iron shafts on the PGA and Champions Tours, SteelFiber shafts designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf delivered two more Top 10 finishes this weekend on the PGA TOUR. SteelFiber shafts claimed second- and seventh-place ties at The McGladrey Classic at the Sea Island Golf Club.

SteelFiber graphite iron shafts have sparked a growing trend on the professional tours. SteelFiber shafts have been the No. 1 graphite irons shafts on the PGA TOUR for four straight years — 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. Plus, during the 2013 season, players with SteelFiber shafts in their irons won five events on the PGA TOUR and two events on the Champions Tour.

"We're very excited to see the continued success of SteelFiber shafts on the PGA and Champions Tours," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "Every player, regardless of skill level, hopes that technological advances in golf equipment can give them a performance edge, and SteelFiber delivers that edge with game-changing innovation. The SteelFiber technology provides greater vibration dampening and reduces player fatigue, while also providing a player with the stability and consistency they have previously received with steel shafts."

SteelFiber shafts ended the regular 2013 season as No. 2 and No. 3 in the FedEx Cup Season Points; No. 6 and No. 12 in FedEx Cup Playoff Points; and ended 2013 overall as 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.

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).
