On the heels of Bubba Watson’s victory at the Masters, Ping Golf will sell 5,000 limited-edition all-pink Ping G20 drivers, inspired by the one Watson played with to win the green jacket. The pink G20 will be available beginning June 1 and carry a suggested retail price of $430 each.
In addition, Ping will donate five percent of the proceeds to its fundraising campaign, “Bubba Long in Pink. Driven by Ping.”
As part of the campaign, Ping made a $10,000 upfront donation and gives $300 for every drive Watson hits 300 yards or farther (up to 300 drives). To date, $61,600 has been generated. All funds raised will go to Phoenix-area charities, chosen by Ping with Bubba’s support. Its effort is part of the “Bubba & Friends Drive to a Million” initiative launched by Watson this past January to raise $1 million for charities this year.
Ping says each driver will have a bright pink shaft and club head and be offered in lofts of 9.5, 10.5, and 12 degrees for right-handed players and 10.5 degrees for left-handed. There is also a version geared for women with 12 degrees and a ladies flex shaft.
Each driver also comes with a matching pink head cover and a TFC 169D shaft labeled, “Bubba Long in Pink. Driven by PING. Limited Edition 2012.”
