Life is a lot easier when you play badly and then all of a sudden you get in contention and win one. No one gets on your back. When you finish runner-up seven times, everyone is asking, 'Why aren't you winning?' It's much more fun when you jump into a win out of the blue. It's a much tougher game when you play consistently well.

Padraig signs new deal with Wilson

Entry Date:
Oct 28, 2008

"On the back of three Major wins in the past 15 months, it was not the ideal time to be re-negotiating a new contract. And as the hottest golfer playing right now, Padraig was obviously going to attract a lot of interest from rival brands. But he was always looking at the bigger picture and what would help him achieve his next goals. So he decided that Wilson Staff clubs are the ones he wants to keep using. It’s a fearsome combination and one we hope will take Wilson Staff irons beyond the 61 Major wins."

Padraig will continue to contribute to the development of Wilson Staff clubs, such as the latest Tw9 wedges and Smooth driver, as well as the new Di9 irons.
