The Chicago GolfWeek Amateur Tour is excited to announce that Wilson Staff will again be sponsoring our par 4 hole challenge for the 2017 season.
The Wilson Staff Cup is a season long, flighted competition where tour directors will choose one par 4 at each event and we will track your score during the year and the player with the lowest score on those designated holes at the end of the season will win the prize pool.
This game is “flighted”, meaning you will compete only against your own skill level. Each participant puts up a one-time $40 entry fee to participate in the the Wilson Staff Cup.
5 Flights = 5 Champions = 5 Wilson Advisory Staff Members
We have 12 events during the year that equals 14 rounds (2 scores for 2 day major) or 14 Wilson Staff Cup Holes. We will only count your 6 best scores in the Wilson Staff Cup Standings. So, you don't have to play in all of the events to play this game. But, the more you play, you better your chances because we will drop your highest scores and only keep your best 6.
Hole in One Prize Pool
Participation in the Wilson Staff Cup includes a special Hole in One Prize. For every participant of the Wilson Staff Cup that records a Hole in One during the 2016 season they will receive a CASH PRIZE.

2014 Wilson Cup Results
As a long time player of either Mizuno or Titleist irons I was a bit skeptical of playing Wilson; as I have not heard much about them recently. After my recent fitting all of my doubts were erased. The Wilson team was awesome! They worked with me for nearly two hours trying four different sets of irons at various lie angles and five different shaft options. By the time I finished hitting nearly a couple hundred shots, I was set on the FG Tour V4s. My shot distribution was tight in the simulator and longer than the Mizunos I played last year. I have never been through such detailed club fitting to exactly dial in the correct specs to my swing. I highly recommend playing the Wilson Cup - this prize is well worth the effort. Can’t wait to hit these on tour in 2016! - Jason Krich 2015 Champion
My clubs arrived yesterday afternoon. Before I go out to dirty them up today I want to thank you for the great iron fitting experience. You did an AWESOME job!! I’m sure part of the experience was that I was the only person being fitted and I received all of your attention. However, I really appreciated the way that you went through the process to make sure I received the best possible club matched for my game. You just didn’t hand me a club and say that it was the best for my game. I also appreciated that you compared the performances of the different clubs and explained that to me as we went along.
I felt that your organization and follow up skills were stellar. You had a game plan. You explained the game plan. You did exactly what you said you were going to do. You were very professional. Thanks again for an INCREDIBLE club fitting experience. – Roy Robbins 2014 Champion
