The new Staff Model irons have already been put in to play on Tour by Gary Woodland and utilise a similar shape to that of the FG Tour 100 irons.
The blades retain a Fluid Feel Hosel construction, which helps to move weight and enhance feel, as well as featuring a milled face for improved control and feel and a forged 8620 steel that combines with a high polish mirror finish to give the blades a premium finish.
Tour Advisory Staff member and multiple PGA Tour winner Brendan Steele had direct input into the design of the new blade, and challenged the team at Wilson to create a more modern aesthetic, without sacrificing the performance of the FG Tour 100s.
Steele collaborated with the Wilson LABS team to assist in the development of the new Staff Model irons, which took two years of development to bring to life. For Steele, it was crucial to keep the execution consistent and was eager to incorporate his feedback on design, specifically maintaining a thinner top line at address.
“To be able to provide my insight on the next generation on FG Tour 100 irons was an experience I’ll never forget,” said Steele. “We crafted the new Staff Model irons to have a similar look as the FG Tour 100’s, which was vital as I continue to evaluate changes to my equipment.”
“Through precise performance and visually pleasing aesthetics, the Staff Model irons combine the look and feel demanded by today’s best players,” said Jon Pergande, Global Innovation Manager at Wilson Golf.
“Brendan’s influence on these irons had huge impact and with the phenomenal expertise of the Wilson LABS team, we knew these irons were going to be an extremely polished product.”
