Wilson celebrates its centennial with some vintage swag

By Stephen Hennessey

Drawing on a history that includes ties to legends like Gene Sarazen and Sam Snead, Wilson is marking its 100th anniversary by selling throwback gear.

As a part of the yearlong celebration, Wilson staffers Kevin Streelman (below), Ricky Barnes and Padraig Harrington, among others, are wearing hats with the company's former shield logo. The retro caps ($20) can be purchased with other cool items sporting the historic trademark. They include vintage-looking FG Tour 100 irons, a centennial model of the company's Nexus carry and cart bags ($200), headcovers ($20), golf balls and towels.

The brand has been around since 1914, and its tour pros have won 61 majors using the company's irons. For more information go to Wilson.com.
