Wilson Golf is asking golf inventors to submit ideas for improving drivers for a 2016 Golf Channel TV show called “Driver vs. Driver.”
The Wilson Golf tv show will pit innovators against each other as their ideas and concepts are evaluated and critiqued. A set number of contestant concepts will go through prototyping and vigorous testing within Wilson Labs and the individuals and/or teams will work alongside the Company’s engineers and designers to refine the concept until a winner is determined.
The winning individual and/or team will receive $500,000 and the opportunity to have a driver they inspired sold at retail.
“Wilson Golf has a long history of innovation alongside some of the best golfers who have ever played the game,” said Tim Clarke, President of Wilson Golf. “As we push golf innovation into new territories, we recognize that new ideas, materials, design elements and concepts can come from the most unexpected places, industries and people. This new television show is designed to celebrate the entrepreneurial and inventive spirit that is so important to our brand and mine the country for driver ideas that the Wilson Labs team can turn into reality.”
To participate in the Wilson Golf tv show, individuals and/or teams need to submit a short video on their concept, why they think it can work as the next driver innovation, and a brief synopsis of who they are. Entries can be submitted at www.wilson.com/drivervsdriver. The deadline for entries is 11:59 PM CT, August 15, 2015. A comprehensive overview of show eligibility and requirements can also be found on the site.
