Wilson Golf has announced the signing of Scottish golfer Craig Howie to its roster of players competing on the DP World Tour.

Howie graduated from the Challenge Tour after a successful 2021, which saw him claim his maiden Challenge Tour victory at the Range Servant Challenge by Hinton Golf in Malmo, Sweden. The 27-year-old Scotsman also collected a further three top-10 finishes to help secure his graduation. 

Howie has already had a positive start to his career on the DP World Tour with two back-to-back top-30 finishes coming in the recent Ras al Khaimah Championship and the Ras al Khaimah Classic, both held at the Al Hamra GC in the UAE.

Howie enjoyed a promising amateur career, in which he won the Scottish Boys Championship at Murcar Links in 2012. He was also a member of the Scottish team that won the European Amateur Team Championship in 2016, before turning professional in 2018.

He will play Wilson’s Staff Model CB 3 and 4 iron with Staff Model Blades 5-PW, along with Staff Model Forged Raw wedges in 48˚, 54˚ and 60, all carried in a distinctive Wilson red Tour bag, plus a branded cap.

“We are excited to welcome Craig to our Tour line-up for 2022, which has a great blend of new young talent and experienced major winners,” said Doug Wright, Global Commercial Director of Wilson Golf. “After a memorable 2021, we are really looking forward to being a part of the next stage in Craig’s career and hope he can continue his development on the DP World Tour,” he added.

Howie said: “I am really excited to be joining Team Wilson in 2022. After working closely with them over the last few months, putting Wilson irons in play for my first events of 2022 was a no-brainer.  My first year on the DP World Tour is a massive one and it is great to be part of a team that is going to push me to the next level.”
