Once the Cadillac of Golf, Wilson Sporting Goods has made a resurgence in the game of golf with the help of a great tour staff. The once dominant force is back due to some exceptional play from PGA Tour players Kevin Streelman, Paul Lawrie, Ricky Barnes and of course Padrig Harrington.
As of December 11, 2012 – Three-time Major champion Padraig Harrington has re-signed with Wilson Golf in a multi-year deal that will continue his personal and professional commitment to Wilson Staff and their superior clubs on both the PGA and European Tours.
Harrington started with Wilson Golf back in 1998 and won three Majors in 13 months, including back-to-back Open Championships in 2007 and 2008. During his 15 years playing with Wilson Staff clubs, Padraig has earned approximately $50 million in prize money and won 26 tournaments worldwide.
The popular Irishman will continue to play the Wilson Staff FG Tour V2 irons that helped him score his lowest round as a professional golfer (61) at the 2012 Transitions Championship and also claim the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in October.
Building on an already impressive tour resume at this year’s Masters (T8) and US Open (T4), Padraig will be putting into play the new FG Tour TC Wedges featuring Traction Control technology and the new D-100 Staff Hybrids in his bag, as always he will be sporting a Wilson Staff logo hat.
“I’m delighted to have renewed my relationship with Wilson Golf and continue our long association,” said Harrington. “I can always rely on Wilson Staff clubs when it really matters and the support I get out on the Tour is second to none.
“I love the feel and control I get from the FG Tour V2 irons and I’m sure they will continue to serve me well on Tour next year,” added Padraig, who first used a Gene Sarazen 5-iron from Wilson Staff when he was just five years of age.
“We’re thrilled that Padraig has re-signed with us and will continue his career with our equipment,” said Tim Clarke, General Manager of Wilson Golf. “Padraig is a great ambassador for our brand and the game itself, and we look forward to working with him to deliver more success in the coming years.”
Harrington will also uphold his role as a Wilson Staff Advisory Member, helping with the development of clubs for the brand that has delivered an unrivalled number of Major wins with its irons (61) and wedges (82).
