A big contributor to Gary Woodland’s victory in the U.S. Open last June at Pebble Beach was his Wilson Staff Utility iron and it is now coming to retail Dec. 11. Designed originally for use by staff Tour professionals such as Woodland and Brendan Steele the Staff Model Utility Iron has some interesting features low-handicap amateurs will like.
The clubhead is hollow which is an effective way to move head weight closer to the perimeter to produce optimum launch and preserve ball speed when impact isn’t exactly in the center. The face itself is C300 maraging stainless steel, very thin and therefore flexible at impact to add yards.
To get the center of gravity as low as possible in the head Wilson used a hefty 7-gram weight and a weight screw through the sole.
Priced at $229.99 the Wilson Staff Model Utility Iron KBS Tour Hybrid graphite stock shaft. Three lofts will be available: 18-degree, 21-degree and 24-degree.
