Joakim Lagergren, the highly-rated Swedish player who contested a dramatic playoff at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters last year, has signed an exclusive deal to play with Wilson Staff clubs this season.

A former winner of the Northern Ireland Open on the Challenge Tour, Lagergren has joined the strongest group of Wilson Golf professionals on the European Tour in many years.

The line-up includes 3-time Major champion Padraig Harrington, former Open champion Paul Lawrie, the redoubtable Anthony Wall, former English Amateur Champion Paul Waring, plus the charismatic Marcel Siem, whose contract has also been renewed as he adds the new C300 Driver to his bag. Together, these five seasoned veterans have accounted for a total of 29 victories on the European Tour and more than €58m in prize money.

Stockholm-born Lagergren, 26, enjoyed a strong finish last season, which included T12 at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and a top 20 showing at the UBS Hong Kong Open.

“I’m very happy to be joining the Wilson Golf Tour team at a time when it includes so many champions who have already shown what can be achieved with the amazing Wilson Staff clubs,” said Joakim, who is competing at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship this week. “I’m really excited about playing with the same V6 irons and PMP wedges that the likes of Padraig, Paul and Marcel have put to such good effect.”

Doug Wright, Wilson Golf’s Global Commercial Director, is very excited about the new line-up, saying: “The signing of an up and coming player on the Tour like Joakim further strengthens the Wilson brand resurgence.

“Both Padraig and Paul will be returning to Carnoustie for this year’s Open Championship with happy memories of previous memorable victories. Every member of the group wants to take part in this year’s Ryder Cup in Paris, where we hope that Wilson Staff clubs can help return the trophy to Europe,” he added.

The new Wilson Staff C300 Driver features revolutionary Power Hole™ technology that expands the sweet spot for greater ball speeds across the entire hitting surface. 

The award-winning FG Tour V6 irons are designed for the player requiring ultimate feel and precision shot-making. Made from 8620 carbon steel, the V6 irons feature split tungsten weighting through the set offering improved sole camber and bounce for added distance and optimal ball flight. 

The new Wilson Staff PMP (Precision Milled Performance) wedges include the RAW model which incorporates the same head shape as the Oil Can and Tour-Frosted models, but will rust over a period of time for a classic look.
