Mark Wilson claims maiden PGA victory for PING i20s
January 23, 2012

Staff player Mark Wilson has brought the PING i20 driver and irons their first wins on the PGA Tour, earning his fifth victory by two shots at the Humana Challenge in La Quinta, California with a 24 under par total of 264 (66-62-67-69). Remarkably, it was only the second week that Wilson had the i20 irons in his bag.

Evidently an early season specialist, Wilson has claimed all five of his PGA wins in the first quarter of the year and won twice in February 2011, so it wasn’t surprising to see the PING Pro leading after three rounds at La Quinta. But his final round started slowly. He was 1-over through 10 holes, waiting for the kind of birdie run that propelled him to a 62 on the same Palmer Course two days earlier; there are three courses in the tournament rotation. When he birdied the 11th, then made another from the greenside bunker on the 12th, he had his momentum. With birdies on 16 and the home hole, he played the final eight holes in four under. Wilson earned $1,008,000 and now lies second on the FedExCup points list.

He credits his fast start the past two seasons to the breaks he has taken during November and December. “I can clear my mind of golf. I tend to remember the good things I did before and when I came out the last two years I just had a clear mind. It feels good to win.”

Wilson’s PING equipment included an i20 driver (8.5º), i15 hybrids (17º and 20º), i20 irons 4-PW, Tour wedges (52º and 60º), and a Karsten Anser putter. See his full bag of equipment here.
