Wilson launches club fitting competition

Wilson Staff has launched an Online Club Fitter service to help golfers find the irons, woods and wedges most suited to their game. They can then post the results on social media to have a chance of winning their customised set.

The 12-club Online Fitter asks golfers a series of questions on their playing style, shot trajectory and short/long game preferences to determine whether they are a ‘feel’, ‘control’ or ‘distance’ category player. Those who complete an online fitting before 1 June can post their recommended Wilson Staff iron model on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #makeitpersonal to be entered into a competition to win their set of 12 clubs and accompanying neXus bag. Three winners (one for each playing category) will be selected randomly once the competition closes.

The online fitting service provides golfers with a detailed breakdown of their 12 prescribed clubs and allows them to watch videos explaining the performance-enhancing technology involved in each model. The Online Club Fitter service also incorporates a video featuring tour stars Padraig Harrington (pictured), Kevin Streelman and Ricky Barnes, explaining the F-C-D system in more detail.

Doug Thiel, global director of marketing for Wilson said, “We strongly encourage players to get on a launch monitor and analyse their fitting numbers. However, the Online Club Fitter will help players walk into their golf shop and be aware of their starting point to find the best set of clubs for their game.”
