Ping has announced that it will sell 5,000 limited-edition pink Ping G20 drivers, inspired by the one used by Masters winner Bubba Watson.
From its sales, Ping will donate 5% of the proceeds its fundraising campaign, “Bubba Long in Pink. Driven by Ping.”
The pink Ping G20 drivers will be available in golf shops nationwide from June 1, 2012 with an RRP of £339.
As part of Ping’s campaign, the company 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 in January to raise $1 million for charities this year.
The pink Ping G20 drivers will have a bright pink shaft and clubhead, and they will be available in a 9.5, 10.5 and 12-degree lofts for right-handed players and 12 degrees for left handers.
