Ryder Cup legend and three-time major champion Padraig Harrington has re-signed with Wilson Golf on a multi-year deal.

The 2007 and 2008 Open Champion will carry on playing with Wilson Staff clubs on both the PGA and European Tour from January 2013.

The Irishman – who first signed with the brand in 1998 – has earned more than €22m and won 26 professional tournaments using Wilson Staff.

He will continue to employ the Wilson Staff FG Tour V2 irons, which he used to record victory in the PGA Grand Slam of Golf.

They will accompany the new FG Tour TC wedges, featuring Traction Control technology, and the new D-100 hybrids in his Pro Tour bag. He will also feature the Wilson Staff logo on his headwear.

“I’m delighted to have renewed by relationship with Wilson Golf and for us to continue our long association,” said Harrington.

“I can always rely on Wilson Staff clubs when it really matters and the support I get on tour is second to none.”

Tim Clarke, General Manager of Wilson Golf, added: “We’re thrilled that Padraig has re-signed with us, and continues this long relationship with the brand that has won more majors with its irons than any other.

“Padraig is a great ambassador for Wilson Golf and the game itself and we look forward to working with him to deliver more success in the coming years.”

Harrington is also set to continue his role in the development of clubs as a Wilson Staff Advisory Member.
