Wilson Golf, the Chicago-based company with more Major iron victories (61) than any other golf club manufacturer, announced today that its Wilson Staff Tour Support Vehicle will be on-site at select Chicagoland area Dick’s Sporting Goods and Golf Galaxy locations for free custom fittings beginning Memorial Day weekend. Wilson Staff custom club fitters and builders will be on hand to service customers and to educate about Wilson Golf equipment, test clubs and get clubs properly fit for their swing.

 “TheWilson Staff Tour Support Vehicle will give customers the opportunity to get the Tour experience right here in Chicago ,” said Tim Clarke, general manager of Wilson Golf. “Golf is a game where every small detail is crucial and we’re excited to help golfers get the right equipment to improve their game, get them custom fitted on-site and most importantly, taken home the same day.”

Customers who purchase an eight-piece set of Wilson Staff irons (Di11, D-FY, Ci9, FG Tour, FG62, or Progressive irons) during all Wilson Staff Tour Support Vehicle events will receive a free gift valued at $150 with proof of purchase. In store, customers who either “like” Wilson Golf on Facebook or “follow” @WilsonGolf on Twitter will receive a free sleeve of Wilson Staff golf balls, no purchase necessary.

“Wilson Staff is committed to providing golfers quality equipment and the opportunity to get clubs personally and professionally fitted just like our Tour professionals Padraig Harrington, Ricky Barnes and Chicago-native Kevin Streelman. Custom fitted clubs will ensure golfers have the right tools to help improve their game and have a great golf season here in the Chicago area,” said Steve Junkroski, master club fitter for Wilson Golf.

Customers can test a wide-variety of Wilson clubs, including the new Wilson Staff Di11, Ci9, or FG Tour irons. These irons each represent Wilson’s F-C-D (Feel, Control, Distance) family of clubs, which Wilson Staff uses to properly outfit golfers based on their individual skill level and equipment needs.
