John Augenstein Joins Wilson Advisory Staff
Read about how the former number three ranked amateur in the world has teamed up with Wilson.
Augenstein’s rising star and fresh energy make him a perfect fit to round out a Golf Advisory Staff that includes Gary Woodland, Kevin Streelman, Brendan Steele, and Padraig Harrington.
Augenstein is coming off a stellar four-year, four-time All-American career at Vanderbilt University, where he was named 2020 SEC Player of the Year and was among the finalists for the 2020 Collegiate Player of Year honors. Among the sport’s rising stars, Augenstein participated in both the U.S. Open and The Masters in 2020 and was the runner-up at the 2019 U.S. Amateur.
“We are excited to have a young, exciting, and accomplished player like John join our Wilson team,” said Tim Clarke, Wilson Golf president. “As we build our presence and gain momentum at the highest level of golf, we are committed to partnering with the game’s next generation of superstars to provide them an opportunity to play some of the best equipment on the market to achieve success.”
Augenstein, looking to build off a very successful amateur career, is set to make his professional debut at The American Express. There, he will put into play the Staff Model CB Irons, Staff Model Blades, and Staff Model Wedges. Augenstein will be testing the Wilson LABs prototype driver and woods throughout the season.
“Getting to know the team at Wilson, it just felt like the right fit,” said Augenstein. “When I first started testing their equipment, I was blown away at how great of an iron and wedge that they make. As classic a look as you can get, and the feel is incredible. I really love the equipment and I value the people that make it.”
