Do you see any Wilson Staff in bags where you play?

The brands you won't play topic got me off on this specific brand. Does anyone in your group or groups you play in have any Wilson Staff clubs? I hawk bags while I golf looking for what is being played. Here in Central Illinois in corn country, I haven't seen any. IF you see them what area are you from? Country, State, whatever you want to include.



(A fellow lefty posted his Wilson irons out in Lefty clubs only post and they look awesome)

    I've seen a few on occasion, but consider I work at a golf course and on any given day, I could potentially see 200 to 300 golf bags go by.

    On the last 2 years, over 300 rounds I have only seen 2 in Minnesota. Plus in North Shore Club in Orlando they are the rental sets.

    But it tells you a lot that being WS an Illinois based company you don’t see it a lot.

    I forget that Wilson is up in Chicago. There is a disconnect between Chicago and Central and Southern Illinois though. It has to do with politics and snobbery. They think we are toothless and stupid and we think they got their heads so far up their arses they can see their own teeth,

    Just in my own bag. I've had a few older guys comment on it, but the younger folks don't seem to even be aware that the brand exists outside of box sets (which isn't staff, of course).

    Few guys in our golf league have the FGTour and the V4 irons. I have seen a few people with various C series irons or putters. More so irons and putters and balls though... No woods to be seen from me.

    I'm on the WI/IL border and Wilson used to be really big up here however lately it is a different story. Once in a while you will see Wilson range balls but I almost never see a Wilson club. I don't change clubs often but I look at basically everything and I haven't seen a Wilson iron or wedge in person for years.

    I play with a lot of old guys and see a ton of Wilson Staff. They’ve been playing it for forty years and old guys are very brand loyal. They also don’t carry wedges higher than 56*. Good enough in 1967, good enough now.

    Plenty of interest over this side of the pond. Our pro has stocked Wilson Staff and Ping for last couple of seasons with WS significantly outselling Ping. See plenty on the course, plus the hybrid and wedges in my bag.



    Overall, in the crowd I play with brands rank something like Mizuno, Ping, Wilson Staff and then the others - very rarely see TM or Cally - guess we’re a cynical lot and don’t buy the marketing hype.

    I am currently playing Wilson Staff FG-62 irons. Aside from my bag I have not noticed any other players gaming W/S clubs. I belong to a private club with an active golf membership and I frequent a few popular municipal courses near my SoCal residence. I have not seen any other W/S clubs and I see everything from ragtag bags to the latest/greatest/$$$ from the major OEMs, Honma, PXG, Miura, etc.

    Exactly. I've seen more sets of PXGs in the past two days than I've seen WS in the past 20 years.

    Now that you brought it up I have not seen but one set even among the Tourist Golfers. The one guy I work with plays a set. Now granted he did move down here from Ohio a couple of years ago now. I will ask him Monday about that. Now older Wilson wedges I am a big fan of have several JPs and a couple of R-90s

    So we’ve been paired up, then. Last time out at the Links in Northfork, I played my V4’s while another guy had the F5’s. Doesn’t happen often, however.
