Three-time Major champion Padraig Harrington has re-signed with Wilson Golf in a multi-year deal that will see him continue to play Wilson Staff clubs on both the PGA and European Tours from January 2013.
The Irishman originally signed with Wilson Golf back in 1998 and went on to win three Majors in 13 months, including back-to-back Open Championships in 2007 and 2008.
During his 15 years playing with Wilson Staff clubs, he has amassed more than £18 million in prize money and won 26 tournaments.
He will continue to play the FG Tour V2 irons, the new FG Tour TC wedges and the new D-100 hybrids in his Pro Tour bag, while continuing to feature the Wilson Staff logo on his headwear.
“I’m delighted to have renewed my relationship with Wilson Golf and for us to 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."
Tim Clarke, General Manager of Wilson Golf, said: “We’re thrilled that Padraig has re-signed with us and continues this long relationship with the brand that has won more Majors with its irons than any other.
“Padraig is a great ambassador for Wilson Golf and the game itself and we look forward to working with him to deliver more success in the coming years.”
2012 has been somewhat of a resurgence for Harrington, having shot his lowest round as a professional (61) at this year’s Transitions Championship, finally winning the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in October and having a good showing in the majors, finishing tied-8th at The Masters and tied-4th at the US Open.
