Bubba’s in the pink with Ping

Ping is to sell 5,000 limited-edition all-pink Ping G30 drivers, inspired by the one used by two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson, and donate $60 to the Bubba Watson Foundation for every pink driver sold. Watson has used a pink Ping driver since 2012, the year he won his first Masters. Following that victory, Ping introduced a similar programme with its pink G20 driver.

The limited-edition G30 drivers will have a bright pink shaft and clubhead featuring the same technology, including turbulators on the crown. The pink G30 drivers are offered in 9º and 10.5º lofts for right-handed players and 10.5º for left-handed players. It is available in R and S flexes. All come with a matching pink-accented head cover. RRP is £425.

Watson said, “I’ve been playing Ping clubs since I was eight years old. Besides making great equipment that helps me have success on the golf course, Ping and the Solheim family are incredibly generous in giving back to the game through ideas like the limited-edition pink G30 driver programme. I’m excited golfers have the opportunity to participate in this great cause knowing they are also contributing to help improve the lives of the less fortunate.”
