Wilson Golf giving one limited edition pink FG Tour TC Wedge away

CHICAGO -- Mother's Day is coming upon us and to celebrate, Wilson Golf is offering a limited edition pink FG Tour TC Wedge to one lucky recipient via social media channels.

The iridescent finish on this 60 degree wedge blends a strong pink with a golden accent, providing a premium, female look. Its pink Lamkin R.E.L 3GEN grip perfectly complements the hue of the wedge head.

The wedge is cut to a 34.25" length and provides a lighter feel to accommodate the specifications of women's golf clubs. The wedge will be hand stamped with a specialized name or initial at Wilson Golf's Innovation Center in Chicago, Illinois, according to the winner's request.

This pink wedge replicates the supreme performance of the 2013 FG Tour TC Wedge, with Traction Control technology providing spin-enhancing features for all shots. The aggressive Tour-Y grooves are milled for consistency and enhance spin on full swings. The micro-spin enhancers, or sets of 11 laser-etched lines between each groove, enhance spin on partial swings.

"We are constantly generating ways to engage and reward our followers on different social media platforms," said Doug Thiel, Global Director of Marketing. "Designing an exclusive Mother's Day gift for a female golfer shows how focused we are on remaining innovative in a custom-centric industry."

The giveaway will run from May 3rd until May 10th on Twitter, where @WilsonGolf followers can tweet a favorite memory of a special woman in their lives (the intended recipient) and tag it #fgtourtc, and on Instagram, where Wilson_Golf followers can upload a picture of a special woman in their lives and tag it #fgtourtc.
