Leading golf equipment brand Ping was named ‘Supplier of the Year‘ for the fifth consecutive year at the recent Foremost Awards Dinner.

The brand, started by Karsten Solheim 53 years ago, was once again acclaimed for its continued support of green-grass professionals by the UK’s leading golf buying group, which represents over 1000 professionals nationwide.

Ping was also awarded the ‘Iron of the Year‘ award for its highly rated G20, which forms part of the brand’s celebrated G family of irons.

The news tops off an extremely successful year for Ping, who began 2012 with the launch of the i20 range before introducing the Anser and ladies’ Serene ranges.

John Clark, Managing Director of Ping Europe, said: “To win such an important award five years in a row is very special.

“Accolades from our customers are always significant, and the latest one reaffirms what an outstanding job every person at Ping has done over the last 12 months.

“It’s a tribute to our products and our people,” he added.

The Foremost Awards dinner was held at the Majestic Hotel, Harrogate, Yorkshire, on Tuesday October 9 2012.
