Wilson Staff Will Unveil New Vizor Belly Putter and Vizor Blade Putter at the 2012 PGA Merchandise Show

Wilson Golf today announced two new additions to the Wilson Staff Vizor Putter Series: the Wilson Staff Vizor Belly and the Wilson Staff Vizor Blade that will unveil at the 2012 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla. Both putters are equipped with I-lock Technology that improves putting alignment by aiding the golfer in positioning the eyes directly over the line of putt. In addition, both the Vizor Belly and Vizor Blade putters have a soft urethane face insert tailored to match the hardness of a golf ball, allowing for improved feel on the green.

In addition to all the technology features of the original Vizor Putter, the Wilson Staff Vizor Belly Putter (available in 43” length) features a longer, body-anchored belly design to assist with a more stable stroke that will lower scores through improved roll and alignment. The Wilson Staff Vizor Blade Putter (available in 34” or 35” lengths) features a more traditional heel/toe weighted head design with the same great performance and alignment features as the original Vizor mallet putter.

“The Wilson Staff Vizor Belly and Vizor Blade putters offer a variety of new options for all golfers,” said Michael Vrska, Global Director of Golf R&D at Wilson Golf. “Being able to take the original Vizor design and add extensions to the line will allow consumers to choose the best, most comfortable option for their game.”

Additionally, all Vizor putter styles feature a lightweight aluminum body combined with stainless steel perimeter weighting resulting in a high MOI (Moment of Inertia) for improved stability. The standard double bend shaft provides for a face balanced design.
