CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED
PING Pro Bubba Watson isn’t afraid of a little pink in his game. In fact, with his booming distance off the tee his all-pink G20™ driver puts many pink-o-phobics in their place.
But for Bubba, it’s not just about hitting a long ball. It’s also about charity. His goal this year is to raise $1 million as part of “Bubba & Friends Drive to a Million” initiative. He is also getting help from PING, who as part of the “Bubba Long in Pink. Driven by PING” campaign are $10,000 to the charity, plus a further $300 for the first 300 drives that Bubba launches over 300 yards in 2012. All funds raised will go to Phoenix-area charities, chosen by PING with Bubba’s support.
“It’s awesome that PING has built me this amazing pink G20 driver and challenged me to deliver,” Watson said. “Pink has always made me stand out, but now it’s going to bring attention for a good cause, so I have extra motivation to hit the ball as far as I can. My goal is to make PING pay every cent,” he added with a smile.
“We have always admired how Bubba wears his heart on his sleeve and how generous he is,” says PING Chairman and CEO John A. Solheim. “His objectives are in step with ours — to make the community where you live and work a better place. This year we have more reason than ever to hope that he’s ‘Bubba Long’ and that every one of his drives goes past 300 yards.”
Inside Golf and PING are giving away a limited edition pink PING G20 driver to one lucky reader. Available in both Men’s and Women’s models, the driver will be available with regular, stiff, soft regular & ladies flex shaft, and in both left and right-hand models.
