Wilson Signs PGA Tour Winner Martin Trainer to its Golf Advisory Board

CHICAGO, IL – Wilson Sporting Goods Co. today announced that professional golfer Martin Trainer has joined its Golf Advisory Staff. The 30-year-old American won the Puerto Rico Open during the 2018-19 PGA TOUR season and also owns three other professional victories on the Korn Ferry and PGA TOUR LatinoAmerica tours.

Trainer will make his debut as a member of the Wilson Golf Advisory Staff at this week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open, putting into play Wilson products throughout his bag:

  • Staff Model driver
  • W Labs 15-degree
  • Staff Model Utility 18-degree
  • Staff Model Irons 4-9, pitching wedge
  • Staff Model 52-degree wedge
  • Staff Mode 56-degree wedge
  • Staff Model 60-degree wedge
  • Staff Model ball

Trainer played college golf at the University of Southern California, where he won the 2011 Pac-12 Championship as a sophomore, and turned pro in 2013. He won twice on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2018 to secure his PGA TOUR card for the 2018-19 season, and in his 11th start on professional golf’s highest tour, secured his first PGA TOUR victory at the 2019 Puerto Rico Open. His three-shot victory over Daniel Berger secured his status for two seasons, and his T5 finish at the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Houston Open earlier this season has helped him move within the top 125 in the FedExCup rankings with an eye toward making the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the first time in his career.

“I couldn’t be happier to announce that I have joined the Wilson Golf Advisory Staff,” Trainer said. “I have spent a lot of time testing their equipment, especially the Staff Model ball, and I’m confident that everything I have put in my bag will help me shoot lower scores and suits my game perfectly. I’m appreciative of the support from everyone at Wilson, and I look forward to representing the brand.”

As a Wilson Advisory Staff member, Trainer will provide valuable insights and test future Wilson Golf clubs, balls and accessories. Trainer joins a growing roster of Wilson Golf Advisory Staff members, including PGA TOUR players Gary Woodland, Kevin Streelman, Padraig Harrington, Brendan Steele, Kevin Tway, Kevin Chappell, John Augenstein and Ricky Barnes as well as LPGA player Sophia Schubert.

As Wilson continues its expansion in golf, Wilson Sportswear will also be dropping a golf-inspired apparel collection for men and women later this Spring.
