Wilson Tour players from around the world, including Major winners Padraig Harrington and Paul Lawrie, joined together over the weekend to post videos on social media platforms marking the arrival of their brand new Wilson Staff Tour Bag.
Designed to give the players a standout look at the restart of this year’s Tour season, the new bag features the classic red and white Wilson branding, matched with prominent black lettering on the side panels and the Wilson Staff crest.
Three-time Major winner Harrington, captain of the 2020 European Ryder Cup team, awaits news about the event at Whistling Straits scheduled for September; while former Open champion Lawrie was a winner at the 2019 Scottish Senior Open during his debut season in the senior ranks.
Other players involved in posting a video this weekend included Americans Brandan Steele, Kevin Streelman and Ricky Barnes; England’s Paul Waring and Jack Senior; Scot David Law; Frenchman Ben Hebert; and European Tour rookie Benjamin Poke from Denmark.
“It’s great to see so much enthusiasm from our Wilson Tour staff players around the introduction of the new Tour bag,” said Doug Wright, Global Commercial Director at Wilson Golf in Chicago. “The distinctive red and white bag has become synonymous with the Wilson brand over the years, and we hope this new edition will herald another period of tournament victories to add to the 62 Majors played with Wilson irons.”
The design of the latest Wilson Staff Tour Bag was inspired by feedback from its Tour players and caddies. It features seven storage pockets, including waterproof pockets for mobile phones and electronics; a large pocket for balls; plus velour-lined pockets for valuables, and insulated sleeves for beverages. A 10-inch x 9-inch top, with six dividers makes it easy to get the clubs in and out of the bag, which also boasts a three-point padded strap. Weighing 4.7 kg, the bag also offers a full-length umbrella sleeve and detachable rain hood.
The cart bag version of the Wilson Staff Pro Tour Bag is available at a RRP of £350.
