Andreas Hartø, the gifted Danish golfer who last year became the fastest player in history to capture two Challenge Tour titles, has joined the Wilson Golf Tour team.
The 22-year-old turned professional after winning the ECCO Tour Championship in Germany as an amateur last year. He then claimed the Roma Golf Open in only his fourth outing on the Challenge Tour.
Hartø – a former Welsh Open Amateur Stroke Play champion – will play with Wilson Staff’s FG Tour irons. He will also carry the distinctive red and white Pro Tour bag and feature the Wilson Staff logo on his headwear.
“Andreas, clearly a special golfer, was courted by several leading brands so we’re very happy he’s chosen Wilson,” said Doug Wright, Business Director for Europe at Wilson Golf.
“The record he set on the Challenge Tour was remarkable and we hope he goes on to make more headlines with the Wilson Staff FG Tour irons.”
Hartø joins three-time Major champion Padraig Harrington, 1999 Open Champion Paul Lawrie, and PGA Tour stars Ricky Barnes and Kevin Streelman as Wilson Staff players for the 2011 season.
