Wilson Staff Golf - Thank You!

I registered at Wilson Staff’s website to try out their new golf balls.  I do like the their new 3 piece Zips.  Not a Callaway Tour Ix or Pro V1 replacement but great on windy days as it has less spin off the driver for me. 

 I received an email from Wilson Staff’s customer service yesterday:

Congratulations!  You’ve won a very special and one-of-a-kind autographed Wilson Staff Cap by 2008 Open Champion Padraig Harrington!  We had over 5,000 people sign up for this give-away over the course of 3 weeks.    

I hope you were able to watch Paddy defend his title last weekend at Royal Birkdale.  Padraig is the first European to win The Open back-to-back since 1906 by James Braid.  Even with a wrist injury and typical Open weather conditions, Padraig is a very hard-worker and makes every shot count, which you witnessed.  His victory marks his second career major win and Wilson’s 60th, the most majors won by any manufacturer in all of golf’s history.  
I’ve attached some supporting material that gives you more information about Padraig and his win.

  • The official US press release

  • Transcript from Padraig’s press conference (please note the comments he made on specific shots and products he used)

  • Image of Padraig with the Claret Jug

I hope you take a moment and check out the newest products on our website and stay tuned later this fall (August) for the launch of 2009 Wilson Golf products.  
Please give 4-6 weeks for delivery of the autographed cap.  
On behalf of Padraig and the Wilson Golf Team worldwide, we thank you for your support!  Let’s keep those majors rolling in as Wilson Staff Tour Players seek 61!
Best regards,
Mary Nguyen

I received it in the mail today!  I will have to post pictures.
