CHICAGO – (June 27, 2023) – Wilson Sporting Goods Co., the club maker with more major wins with its irons than any other brand, today celebrates Padraig Harrington’s victory at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open held in Endicott, N.Y. at En-Joie Golf Club. This is Harrington’s second-straight win at the tournament.
“Winning the same tournament two years in a row is a feat that’s tough to come by, so we are thrilled to celebrate Padraig being the first player to ever defend his title successfully at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open,” said Bob Thurman, general manager of Wilson Golf. “We’re proud to provide Padraig with the equipment that helped him claim his 37th career victory and we cannot wait to root for him next week as he looks to win his second-straight U.S. Senior Open.”
