Wilson Golf has released the world’s most adjustable multi-piece driver on general sale in the UK, featuring two interchangeable sole plates for optimal launch, spin and extraordinary distance.
The Wilson Staff Triton was the winning creation from reality TV show Driver Vs Driver that featured on the Golf Channel over a seven-week period at the end of last year. It challenged designers from outside the golf industry to find a radically new model and compete for a $500,000 winning prize.
Showcasing revolutionary designs from around the United States, the initial tri-winged shape of the sole plate and the three sole weight ports was created by University of Cincinnati graduate and industrial designer Eric Sillies. He then perfected the design with help of the Wilson Golf LABS team over a 16-month period before claiming his prize.
“This is truly a world class product,” said Jon Pergande, Wilson Golf Innovation Manager. “It was a new, fun experience to work with people and concepts from outside of the golf industry. I am extremely proud of the work done by the Wilson LABS team and more importantly, the final quality and performance of the product,” he added. (more…)
Wilson Staff, the pioneering brand in low compression golf ball technology, goes into the 2017 season with a ball designed for every category of golfer featuring the DX2 Soft, the DX3 Spin and the DX3 Urethane.
The DX2 Soft golf ball – credited as the world’s softest ball with its ground-breaking 29 compression – is designed for the Distance player seeking less spin off the tee and soft feel around the greens. The 2-piece construction, first delivered in 2008, delivers the lowest driver spin rate on the market to aid accuracy off the tee while the 302 dimple pattern produces a consistent ball flight and its firm cover generates a higher trajectory to benefit long approaches to the green.
“We’ve been at the forefront of golf ball technology and low compression balls since we started and we’ll continue to conduct the research and testing needed to stay there,” said Frank Simonutti, Global Director of Innovation for Wilson Staff Golf Balls. (more…)

Less than a week after putting the new Wilson Staff FG Tour V6 forged irons in his bag, three-time Major winner Padraig Harrington won his 15th European Tour title at the Portugal Masters at the Oceanico Victoria Clube de Golf on Sunday with a masterclass of accurate approach play and solid putting.
The popular Irishman, who has played Wilson Staff clubs since 1998 in one of golf’s longest partnerships, birdied six holes in a bogey-free final round 65 to finish on -23 and win by a shot from defending champion Andy Sullivan. It was his first victory on the European Tour since 2008 and could move him back into the top 100 of the Official World Golf Rankings.
Harrington, who is renowned for his attention to detail when choosing equipment, placed the new V6 irons in his bag during a practice round earlier this week and was immediately convinced that they would deliver a good score in tournament play. (more…)
