Aerotech Lands Three Top 10s at LPGA Australian Open
SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, landed three Top 10 money positions, including third-place, at the LPGA Australian Open on the LPGA Tour.

Coming off a second-place finish at the Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic, the 19-year-old LPGA rookie from Bangkok, took solo third-place, playing SteelFiber J108 private-label graphite shafts in her irons. The 2011 LPGA Rookie of the Year tied for fourth with SteelFiber i80s in her irons, while the two-time Australian Women's Amateur champion (2013 and 2014) claimed a T7 finish with her SteelFiber shafts.

“Week after week, we’re seeing more SteelFiber graphite iron shafts in play on professional tours around the world, and the reason for its success is simple — enhanced player performance,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “SteelFiber’s innovative technology is a game-changer. These shafts incorporate high-modulus graphite and micro-thin steel fibers, a combination that allow players to increase yardage, reduce fatigue, and still maintain the stability and accuracy normally associated with steel shafts. SteelFiber is a proven winner on all three top U.S. tours.”

SteelFiber Dials Up Win at AT&T Pebble Beach
SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, won the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on the PGA Tour. The victory marked the 21st tour win for the innovative SteelFiber design.

Playing SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in his irons, the Pebble Beach champion shot an impressive 22-under 265 (64-67-67-67) to claim his seventh PGA TOUR victory and move him up to fifth in FedExCup Rankings. The winner made just one bogey during the week, and is only the fifth winner on TOUR in the past 10 years to make one or fewer bogeys during an event.

“We’ve very excited with the results at the AT&T Pebble Beach, and we congratulate the champion on a tremendous victory,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “SteelFiber graphite iron shafts introduced game-changing innovation that give unique performance benefits unlike any other shaft in golf. Not only do SteelFiber shafts provide stability and shot consistency, but they deliver greater vibration dampening, reduce player fatigue, and increase clubhead speed and ball distance.”
