Gary Woodland, the 34-year-old winner of three PGA Tour events who is ranked No. 31 in the Official World Golf Ranking, has signed an endorsement deal with Wilson. Shortly after Wilson made the official announcement, Woodland took to social media to tell his followers.
Playing this week at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii, Woodland is using a prototype set of Wilson irons and soon could switch to Wilson’s new Cortex driver, the club that recently won the Driver vs. Driver 2 competition.
Financial details of the 10-club deal were not released. Woodland also will wear a Wilson hat in addition to using the company’s clubs.
“As the Wilson brand continues to gain momentum in the golf space, we are thrilled to have a player of Gary’s stature join the team,” said Tim Clarke, Wilson’s president, in a release. “We want players that are athletes at heart and who want to be involved in the brand both on and off the course. We think Gary is a perfect fit for the culture of innovation and excellence we’re building at Wilson.”
