Wilson Golf Expands “Get Fit” Online Equipment Selection Tool To Include Golf Balls


CHICAGO, March 29, 2010 – Enhanced online questionnaire helps golfers choose the perfect golf ball for their game. Wilson Golf has expanded its unique online fitting tool to include a section dedicated to helping golfers select the perfect golf ball. The Get Fit tool has been enhanced with a golf ball specific questionnaire process, making the Get Fit custom fitting center the easiest and most comprehensive way to navigate golf equipment selection. Golfers may visit www.wilson.com/getfit, where they will engage in an easy to use, interactive question and answer session that will deliver the golf ball that best suits a player’s style and ability.

“Golf ball selection is a vital part of every golfer’s strategy,” said Bob Thurman, Wilson Golf’s global director of golf R&D. “The Get Fit golf ball tool provides a simplified understanding of the various technical components in ball design tailored for each player, helping golfers at every skill level maximize their accuracy, distance and overall enjoyment of the game.”

Wilson Staff has introduced three new golf balls in 2010:

Wilson Staff FG Tour Golf Ball
The FG Tour golf ball, designed for the competitive golfer, joins the forged family of Wilson Staff equipment alongside the FG Tour irons. The three-piece, multi-layer ball is a low-compression distance golf ball covered in a thin, soft veneer of urethane to deliver maximum traction control for iron and wedge shots. The FG Tour is Wilson’s softest, highest-spinning multi-piece urethane ball and was created as a low compression solution for competitive players looking for tour-caliber spin, maximum greenside control and excellent distance. In internal testing, the Wilson Staff FG Tour golf ball had longer and straighter ball flights than other leading premium golf balls.

Wilson Staff C:25 Golf Ball
The latest edition to the “C” family of golf equipment, the Wilson Staff C:25, a low-compression three-piece ball delivering minimal spin off the driver, is best matched with the Wilson Staff Ci9 iron. The C:25 promotes progressively higher spin as the player approaches the pin for shots inside 150 yards. The golf ball features a 302-dimple pattern to provide high lift conditions for more height on tee shots and from long distances.

Wilson Staff D:25 Golf Ball
Wilson Staff’s “D”, or distance, golf balls are introduced in conjunction with Wilson Staff Di9 and D-FY irons. The D:25 is a low-compression two-piece ball delivering minimal spin off the driver face. The D:25 golf ball was designed for players looking to hit longer drives and minimize mis-hits.

All Wilson Staff golf balls are built on a low-compression platform featuring ultra-soft, high-velocity cores for the softest feel with no sacrifice in distance. All three golf balls utilize Wilson’s breakthrough Traction Control Technology which is specifically tailored for new and less aggressive groove specifications. Traction Control Technology provides golfers with 17 percent more surface contact area and 13 percent more grooves engaged during impact.

The suggested list price for Wilson Staff FG Tour golf ball is $49.99 per dozen, $34.99 per dozen C:25 golf balls and $29.99 for one dozen D:25 golf balls.
