Wilson Golf has been making some of the most versatile utility irons in the industry in the last handful of years, and the company has unveiled their latest utility iron, the Wilson Staff Model.
The Staff Model was originally born as a prototype iron for Wilson Advisory Staff players, but the feedback from staff in terms of distance and forgiveness prompted the company to release the long-iron replacements to the public.
As we have come to expect in this category, the Staff Model has a hollow-body construction designed to lower center of gravity, offer a more spring-like reaction at impact and more forgiveness throughout the face, which is made of C300 maraging steel. A seven-gram weight is screwed in the sole, which helps lower the center of gravity and ensure better launch conditions from any lie.
“The Staff Model Utility Irons will give golfers confidence on every shot and in every condition,” said Jon Pergande, Manager of Golf Club Innovation. “Originally created for our professional staff members, we are excited to bring the utility irons to golfers and believe the strong mix of distance and forgiveness will enable players to attack the course with more confidence.”
The Wilson Staff Model utility irons will be available Dec. 11 for $230 each in 18-, 21- and 24-degree models with the stock KBS Tour Hybrid graphite shaft and are paired with Golf Pride Tour Velvet grip.
