Ping to sell 5,000 pink G30 Bubba drivers

RSS

Ping announced on Masters Monday that it will sell 5,000 limited-edition pink G30 drivers, just like the one used by two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson.

Out of an MSRP of $550, Ping will donate $60 to the Bubba Watson Foundation for each driver sold.

Watson has used a pink driver since 2012, the first year he won the Masters and the year Ping introduced a similar program with its older G20 model. Per a Ping release:

"Those funds were donated to the Phoenix Children’s Hospital and used to help build the recently opened Bubba Watson-PING Golf Motion Analysis Lab – the first and only dedicated pediatric Motion Analysis Laboratory (MAL) in the state of Arizona. The MAL uses advanced assessment tools to evaluate and treat children and adolescents who have movement disorders or walking difficulties caused by conditions like Cerebral Palsy."

Said Watson in a statement: "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."

The drivers are available in regular and stiff flexes, in 9- and 10.5-degree lofts for right-randed players and a 10.5-degree loft for left-handed players. Both right- and left-handed models are adjustable one degree.
