Padraig Harrington supports
June 7, 2011

Three-time Major winner Padraig Harrington has thrown his weight behind – the innovative scheme offering travellers a massive saving on airline golf-bag charges launched last year by fellow Irish golfer Paul McGinley.

Harrington, a staff player for Wilson, has encouraged the manufacturer to join the growing list of top companies whose clubs are featured in the scheme. And subsequently Wilson Golf has joined TaylorMade, Callaway and MD Golf, in the ‘stable’ – ensuring customers receive the latest top-of-the-range clubs when hiring.

The service, which offers considerable savings and peace of mind that clubs won’t be lost or stolen, has proved enormously popular in Dublin, Malaga and Faro airports – and will soon be seen at Edinburgh.

Harrington said: “I must admit when Paul first told be about the service I thought ‘it’s so simple – why hasn’t it been done before?’ Many of my friends took advantage of the service after I mentioned it and said they would use it on every possible occasion.

“I’m delighted Wilson Golf has joined so that thousands more people can try the clubs and realise why I think they are the best available today.”

With budget airlines charging up to £80 return for club transit, offers a considerable saving and affords the opportunity to rent a set of the latest clubs, from a variety of major manufacturers, from just €35 per week.

All clubs are offered – left or right-handed, ladies and men’s – and hire is available from just one day to a full four weeks. And the service couldn’t be easier to use: simply order on-line ahead of travel and pick up the hire set at the destination airport.

Since the service’s launch last year, customers have enjoyed a combined saving of more than a quarter of a million pounds. And with several more European golf destination hubs scheduled to open by the end of the year, golfers and look set to make excess baggage charges a thing of the past.
