Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management and Aerotech Golf renew partnership

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- The Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management (COGSM) is proud to announce that Aerotech Golf — the No. 1 graphite iron shaft manufacturer on the top U.S. Tours — has renewed its partnership to support the College of Golf's students and alumni.

Working closely with Keiser University COGSM students and faculty, Aerotech provides SteelFiber graphite iron shafts for the university's custom fitting and golf club repair programs, assists students with custom fitting questions, and also grants PGA professional-level discounts to students and alumni. The highly successful program helps educate students on the innovative game-changing shaft technology that is so prevalent on the pro tours today.

"Our partnership with Aerotech Golf over the past year has been extremely successful and we're very excited to continue working with Aerotech to inform our students about the unique performance benefits of composite technologies. Golf professionals always need to be knowledgeable about the industry's most advanced equipment and technology, and Keiser University COGSM is committed to partnering with the industry's top manufacturers to better prepare our students," says John McMurry, campus vice president of Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management. "We sincerely appreciate Aerotech's continued support of Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management."

Aerotech Golf supplies shafts to top golf club manufacturers, such as TaylorMade, Callaway, Titleist, Ping, Nike, Bridgestone, Srixon, Cleveland and others. Aerotech's SteelFiber shafts are the No. 1 iron graphite shafts on the PGA, Champions and LPGA Tours, and are well-known for delivering the power of graphite and the stability of steel shafts. 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.
