WILSON GOLF INTRODUCES D9 DRIVER AND WOOD LINE WITH NEW PKR FACE
Using Wilson’s generative design software to maximize speed and distance, the new D9 Woods deliver maximum distance and well-rounded performance off the tee CHICAGO, January 22, 2021 – 9AM EST/CST – Wilson’s generative design process, which uses computer modeling to simulate hundreds of variations in club design and measure the resulting performance characteristics, is changing the way golf clubs are designed. Utilizing this revolutionary process, Wilson Golf, today, officially launched the new D9 driver along with their line of D9 fairway woods and hybrids for the 2021 season. The D9 driver features a new peak kinetic response club face (PKR) by dividing the face into a series of fractural zones and fine-tuning every millimeter of the surface to deliver explosive distance and performance. The PKR Face is the most technologically advanced face that Wilson has ever produced. This face design has been tested on the PGA Tour in 2020 by Gary Woodland and Brendan Steele. The D9 driver features a three-layer composite crown to both neutralize vibration and reduce weight, ensuring a lower center of gravity for improved ball flight. Players can choose between a standard 10- gram or super lightweight 3-gram weight configuration to fine tune moment of inertia (MOI) and forgiveness. “Utilizing our proprietary software, alongside Wilson Labs and our Wilson Advisory Staff members, the D9 driver is our best driver offering yet”, said Jon Pergande, Global Innovation Manager at Wilson Golf. The D9 driver is available in three different loft options (9.0 o , 10.5 o and 13.0 o ) The D9 driver is equipped with a Mitsubishi Tensei CK Blue shaft available in A (50 Series – 53 grams), R (50 Series – 54 grams) and S (60 Series – 67 grams and features the new softer Lamkin Crossline Genesis grip. Fairway Woods and Hybrid Wilson Staff® D9 fairway woods and hybrid feature new variable face technology. For the first time on a Wilson Staff fairway wood or hybrid, this innovative technology delivers high ball speeds and higher launch angles regardless of where on the face the ball makes contact. Both clubs feature a premium maraging steel insert to provide a thin, hot face for more speed, more feel and more distance performance. The D9 fairway woods are available in three loft options – 15˚ (3-wood); 18˚ (5-wood); and 21˚ (7-wood) – with the Mitsubishi Tensei CK Blue shaft and Lamkin Crossline Genesis grip as used on the driver. Shaft weight options include A (50 Series – 53 grams), R (50 Series – 54 grams) and S (60 Series – 67 grams). The D9 hybrids are available in six loft options (17˚, 19˚, 22˚, 25˚, 28˚ and 31˚) with the Mitsubishi Tensei AV Silver shaft and Lamkin Crossline Genesis grip. Shaft weight options include A (55 Series – 61 grams), R (60 Series – 64 grams) and S (70 Series – 77 grams). The D9 driver, woods and hybrid will be available for purchase on Wilson.com and at golf retailers on Tuesday, January 26, 2021.
