The pink driver used by Bubba Watson to win the Masters is going to market.
Two days after Watson won the Masters, Ping said it would sell 5,000 limited-edition G20 drivers with the pink shaft and head. The drivers sell for $430, and Ping said it would donate 5 percent to a fundraising campaign called, “Bubba Long in Pink. Driven by Ping.”
As part of the campaign, Ping donated $10,000, along with $300 for every drive Watson hits over 300 yards this year.
Watson, meanwhile, launched “Bubba & Friends Drive to a Million” in January with hopes of raising $1 million for charities this year.
The club is a pink Ping G20 (7.5°) with a tipped extra stiff Grafalloy Bi-Matrix shaft. The grip is a jumbo Ping with a reminder that is set 20 degrees open!
I handled a replica of Bubba’s driver at the PGA Show earlier this year I had never held a golf club that was this “big”! Even if it was rightie I would never have been able to hit this behemoth of a club – particularly with the grip set so open.
