Woodland gave us a hint

Woodland courted rumors of a switch when he was spotted at the 2018 Hero World Challenge playing a set of prototype Wilson irons in his final event of the year. In addition, Woodland, who played Titleist 718 MB irons, wedges and used the Pro V1 in 2018 without a contract, was spotted using an FG Tour V4 utility 2-iron.

The Wilson prototype blades Woodland was using had a weight distribution in the back which favored the toe of the club for more forgiveness.


Ultimately, Woodland signed a 10-club deal with Wilson, putting him in play with irons. That could, of course, expand over time, but the company is happy to have a multi-time PGA Tour winner in the top 40 in the world on their staff. They see it as validation, perhaps rightly so, of the progress they've made in recent years with all of their offerings.
