BELLINGHAM, Wash. – The No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf, SteelFiber shafts by Aerotech Golf were also No. 1 on the leaderboard this weekend at the HUGEL-JTBC LA Open on the LPGA Tour. SteelFiber i80 delivered the win as well as a T7 finish and SteelFiber J-Series scored a T2 at the LA Open. Meanwhile, J-Series also captured a win at the Saint Nine Masters on the KLPGA Tour.
Playing SteelFiber i80 graphite iron shafts, the 23-year-old Thailand native and 2013 LPGA Rookie of the Year finished strong with a 3-under par final round. With her victory, the champion and her sister – who both play SteelFiber shafts – join Annika and Charlotta Sorenstam as the only other sisters to win on the LPGA Tour. In addition to the LPGA victory, SteelFiber J-Series shafts picked up a win at the Saint Nine Masters on the KLPGA Tour in South Korea, making this weekend a double global victory for SteelFiber shafts.
“We congratulate the LA Open champion on her first LPGA victory, and we’re confident she will be hoisting more trophies very soon,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “SteelFiber i80 shafts, like the ones the LA Open champion played, gives unprecedented control and consistency for a shaft in its weight category and is a proven winner on pro tours. Just like all SteelFiber shafts, the i80 also reduces the risk of injury, lessens aggravation of existing injuries and decreases player fatigue. SteelFiber allows players to play their best for longer and finish strong.”
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. The shaft’s graphite core provides vibration dampening, increased clubhead speed and maximum distance, while the steel fibers produce optimum weighting for a solid feel at impact and add stability and control for pinpoint accuracy.
