You may not be able to Bend it exactly Like Bubba, but now you can tee it up in style with the same Augusta National azalea-Ping G20 Pink Driver that the 2012 Masters winner used to capture his first major championship.
Ping announced Tuesday that it would commemorate Bubba Watson's victory by selling 5,000 limited-edition all-G20 Pink Limited Edition Drivers and donate five percent of the proceeds to its fund-raising campaign, "Bubba Long in Pink. Driven by Ping." The drivers will be available for retail on or about June 1.
"We looked back at the last few days and realized that with all the tremendous energy Bubba has created with his win at the Masters and for our brand, we needed to do more with this opportunity to give back to those in need," said John A. Solheim, PING Chairman & CEO. "The response to the Ping G20s has exceeded expectations at this point, so we're increasing our commitment to help bring Bubba closer to his goal of raising $1 million for charity this year."
Watson set a goal of raising $1 million for charity at the start of this year, and his Limited Edition G20 Pink was the calling card. On his website, he explained his motivation: "I've always felt the need to give back and now I have the chance to in a big way. Helping these charities and more importantly, the families involved, can be more rewarding than winning a golf tournament."
