Wilson Golf Announces Wilson Staff Di11 Irons Promotion Winners

61 Majors have been won with Wilson Staff irons than any other brand in golf. On November 11, 2010, Wilson Golf randomly selected 11 winners for their own set of new Wilson Staff irons. In the super game-improvement category, Wilson Staff Di irons have pushed the distance and accuracy envelope since the original first launched in 2005. Now 11 lucky golfers will receive a set of the new Wilson Staff Di11 irons of their own. Each set is valued up to $749.99 MSRP.

More than 12,000 golfers registered online and by mail during the 30-day promotion for their chance to win the most forgiving, longest irons that Wilson Golf has made in its almost 100-year history. In the end, these 11 winners were selected at random:

  • Jason Tallakson – Lancaster, Calif.
  • James Myers – Glen Ellyn, Ill.
  • Pat Thurman – Colorado Springs, Col.
  • Tuan Schneider – Eagan, Minn.
  • Timothy Nagle – Mount Pleasant, SC
  • Duane Beswick – Petoskey, Mich.
  • Gerald Speelman – Milford, Mich.
  • Dave Wolfe – Sacramento, Calif.
  • Dennis George – Seattle, Wash.
  • Peggy Anderson – Coon Rapids West, Minn.
  • Richard Sawyer – Lebanon, NH

 

According to winner James Myers, “I've had my trusty old irons for 12 years and was way overdue for new technology. Sounds like the Di11 irons will provide plenty of that!”

The new Wilson Staff Di11 iron is the fifth generation in a Di Iron franchise that has fueled Wilson’s market share growth in the super game-improvement iron category. As the tagline reads, “in a world of 1 to 10, this goes to 11.”  Once you hit it, you get it.

“We’re excited to have the first 11 sets out in the hands of our consumer before they are even available to the general marketplace,” says Tim Clarke, general manager of Wilson Golf.  “Words can’t describe how good this club is. Just hit it, you’ll get it.”

The new Wilson Staff Di11 iron features modifications and updates in virtually every performance area, all designed to deliver added power and greater accuracy for players of all skill levels. Modifications include an ultra-wide sole and larger sweet spot that deliver the most forgiving and longest iron possible – all while remaining aesthetically pleasing to golfers. The Di11 irons are also available in the award-winning Half-&-Half shafts – half graphite and half steel – that deliver the soft feel of graphite with the response and precision of steel.
