Wilson Staff Claims Three Golf Medals and Two Silvers as Part of 2015 Golf Digest Hot List


Wilson Golf Adds to Hot List Repertoire With Gold Medals for D200 Family and FG Tour V4 Irons 

ORLANDO, Fla. – Wilson Staff has officially been awarded three gold medals along with two silvers in the recently announced 2015 Golf Digest Hot List. Wilson Staff’s newest line of drivers and irons, the D200, was highlighted as its biggest winner with both the D200 driver and D200 irons taking gold medals. In addition, the tour-proven FG Tour V4 irons garnered gold medal recognition while the D200 fairway woods and D200 hybrids received silver medals, respectively.

The Wilson Staff FG Tour V4 irons, designed for the Feel (F) player seeking a sleek setup, ultimate feedback and shot-shaping control, feature tungsten weighting and improved sole camber and bounce for improved distance, versatility and optimal ball flight. The FG Tour V4s were rigorously tested and are currently played by Wilson’s Advisory Staff members, including PGA Tour professionals Kevin Streelman, Ricky Barnes, Troy Merritt and three-time major winner Padraig Harrington, as well as European Tour stars Marcel Siem, Paul Waring and Anthony Wall.

The Wilson Staff D200 family is designed for the Distance (D) player seeking accuracy. The D200 family incorporates Right Light Technology, which optimally positions limited available mass to create a powerful, balanced, solid-feeling and sounding golf club. The D200 irons feature Speed Sole Technology that allows for a thinner face-to-sole transition resulting in driver-like CTs, faster ball speeds and longer distance. With a total mass of just 268 grams, the D200 driver is the lightest adjustable driver on the market and employs Reactive Face Technology to achieve ultimate forgiveness on heel and toe impacts.

“The D200 line of drivers and irons is a game-changer for Wilson Staff,” said Tim Clarke, Wilson Golf President. “We are focused on delivering world-class products that not only our tour players can win with, but our amateur following can play their best golf with. The recent Golf Digest Hot List credentials further validate to the golf community that our innovation is better than ever.”

The 2015 recognition builds upon the great tradition of the D, or Distance, line of equipment. In 2013, the D100 received Hot List recognition as the only non-adjustable driver on the market. More importantly, the launch of the D200 marks the first time that Wilson Staff achieved Hot List medals for its entire family of equipment.
