Two Rookies. Two Wins. Tinning and New FG Tour Proto
CHICAGO, October 10, 2013 – Wilson Staff professional Steen Tinning advanced to the top position on the European Senior Tour Order of Merit with a victory at the English Senior Open last week. The Dane took his second win as a Senior Tour rookie using the brand new prototype FG Tour golf ball.
Armed with Wilson Staff FG Tour V2 irons and FG Tour TC wedges, Tinning shot a dominant third round of 63 and a final round finish of birdie-birdie-par, holding off the field en route to the trophy. “My iron and wedge games have both been extremely reliable, which has allowed me to relax my thoughts on the greens and earn crucial birdies,” commented Tinning.
On the seventeenth hole, he hit his FG Tour V2 four-iron to six feet leading to a birdie. In his words, it was “the four-iron of the year.”
Tinning, who is only the second multiple winner on the European Senior Tour this season, captured the Berenberg Masters in August and now enjoys a first place tour ranking. Recent success with his Wilson Staff prototype golf ball sheds tour-proven attention on a product that has not yet been released to consumers.
Designed by the leader in low compression technology – Wilson Staff – this new FG Tour golf ball will provide an extremely soft feel along with an advanced four-piece construction for superior shot-making Tour playability.
“We are well aware that there is not one ball for every player,” admits General Manager of Wilson Golf, Tim Clarke. “We are honest with ourselves and consumers, and that is why our golf ball platform sets golfers with different swings up for success. The new FG Tour is engineered for players who demand soft feel and higher-spinning greenside performance, thus proving to be the golf ball Steen is relying on for his winning play. Obviously it’s working.”.
