I’ve said it for the last several years. Wilson Golf is one of two golf manufacturers that have been the biggest “movers and shakers” in the golf industry. Irons and wedges second to nobody and a new driver that just might see them on a more level field as “the others”.
More indications of this is evident as Wilson Golf signed the 3x PGA Tour winner to their Advisory Staff. Woodland who is in the field this week at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii. Being put into play this week on the Plantation Course at Kapalua are a V4 Utility Iron and prototype Staff Model blades. Woodland is also in the process of testing the Driver vs Driver 2 winner the Cortex.
For more details please see the press release below. Thanks go to Lindsey Lasater (Marketing/PR Manager Wilson Golf) and Zac Herndon (The Brand Amp) for sharing the release.
