Infinite success for Harrington with Wilson putter

Three-time major champion Padraig Harrington used a new Wilson Staff Infinite mallet putter to hole a 15-foot putt on the last and win his first title in two years at the Bank BRI Indonesia Open in Jakarta. The popular Irishman completed a 16-under-par total for a two-shot victory and the 29th international title of his career.

The Infinite putter line, incorporating counterbalanced technology to provide a more controlled and stable putting stroke, features six classic head shapes with refined detailing and oversized grips. Each model is named after a famous landmark or neighbourhood in Chicago where Wilson Golf is based and Harrington plays with the centre-shafted ‘South Side’ putter.

Solid iron and wedge play also contributed to Harrington’s victory. His Wilson Staff FG Tour V4 utility iron, an addition to the FG Tour line that becomes available from January, proved effective off the tee and from long fairways in windy conditions. He also plays V2 irons and a FG Tour TC wedge.

Commenting Harrington said, “Recently my putting has brought a lot of confidence to my game overall. Thanks to the Wilson Infinite putter, which I switched to in August, I feel more comfortable on the greens, which in turn takes the pressure off approach shots and chipping.”
