Padraig Harrington pens new deal with Wilson Golf


Three-time Major champion Padraig Harrington has signed a new multi-year deal with Wilson Golf.

The deal will see the Irishman reach a milestone of 20 consecutive seasons playing Wilson Staff clubs on Tours around the world and follows his first European Tour victory in eight years at the recent Portugal Masters.

The 45-year-old won in Portugal playing with the new FG Tour V6 irons that he put into his bag for the first time that week.

"My association with Wilson Golf is currently one of the longest in the sport and I'm proud to be renewing our agreement for more years to come," he told Today's Golfer.

"The new V6 irons are exceptional and I'd encourage all amateur players to try out the latest Wilson Staff clubs, as they can help golfers of all abilities to improve their games," he added.

Harrington first signed to play Wilson Staff clubs in 1998 and went on to help the brand achieve more Major victories with its irons than any other (61), with back-to-back Open Championships in 2007 and 2008 and another victory at the US PGA Championship in 2008.

"We are thrilled to have Padraig sign a new agreement for him to keep playing Wilson Staff clubs and continue to represent our brand around the world with such passion," said Tim Clark, President of Wilson Golf.

Since joining up with the Wilson Staff brand, Padraig has won no fewer than 29 professional tournaments worldwide and amassed more than $40 million in prize money.

As well as his three Major championships, eleven of those titles have been won on the European Tour and three on the PGA Tour.

In addition to the new FG Tour V6 irons, Padraig's Wilson Staff Tour bag features the latest FG Tour PMP wedges with maximum volume HM grooves; a 19° D-100 hybrid; an FG Tour V4 utility iron; and an Infinite South Side putter that has served him well in recent months.

He also carries Wilson Staff branding on his headwear.
