Introduction of Nanotechnology and PhD Dimple Design in Wilson Staff Equipment Cited in Golf Tips’ Annual "Best Of 2005" Issue
Chicago, IL, October 25, 2005 — The new and revitalized Wilson Staff brand combines the classic look and heritage of the clubs and balls that once dominated golf, with breakthrough technologies that improve the games of all golfers. Now, one year following the re-launch of the legendary brand, Golf Tips Magazine has awarded Wilson Golf two GT Tech Awards for the company’s use of nanotechnology in Wilson Staff equipment and the introduction of the innovative PhD dimple design in Wilson Staff golf balls.
"This is a tribute to the great work of the entire Wilson Staff R & D team," said Angus Moir, global business director, Wilson Golf. "With all the new technologies in golf today, it is very difficult to create new technologies that enhance performance, and these two awards from Golf Tips verify the tremendous work of our engineers."
For it’s cutting-edge use of nanotechnology in the Wilson Staff Pd5 and Dd5 drivers and the Wilson Staff golf ball line, Wilson Golf was presented the Trendsetter Award for 2005. Wilson has taken the lead by infusing nan0-sized particles in the composite crowns of the drivers making them stronger and lighter allowing more weight to be shifted to the desired low and back position. The rubber core chemistry in the Wilson Staff Dx2, Px3 and Tx4 balls is reinforced with nano-sized particles to enhance the overall composite structure for higher strength and consistency.
Golf Tips noted that Wilson is "the first company of note to utilize nanotechnology to improve the performance of golf equipment," and also mentioned that "Wilson just may have launched the next great trend."
Wilson was also the co-winner of the Aerodynamics GT Tech Award for the new PhD dimple design in the Wilson Staff golf balls. The Phd (Pan Head) dimple pattern features just 312 dimples, each larger and almost 50% shallower than most standard dimples. This unique pattern produces higher lift and tighter trajectories. Golf Tips wrote that the Phd dimple is "visible technology that works."
"Our mantra in research and development is to provide game enhancement technologies for players of all abilities," said Bob Thurman, Director of Research, Wilson Golf. "Whether this technology is cutting edge such as Nano materials in our shafts and wood heads or visual such as PhD dimples, the equation remains unchanged: better technologies equal better products which result in better enjoyment of the game for all participants."
The complete listing of 2005 GT Tech Awards are included in the November/December issue of Golf Tips Magazine. Visit www.wilsonstaff.com for product information and images of the entire Wilson Staff line.
