Reigning Web.com Tour player of the year Carlos Ortiz has signed a multi-year equipment deal with Ping, the company announced Wednesday. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Ortiz, who won three times last year to earn fully exempt status on the 2014-15 PGA Tour, already has one top 10 in four starts this season.
“This is what I dreamed about as a boy in Mexico – to compete against the best players in the world,” Ortiz said in a release. “Ping has made the transition a lot smoother and more comfortable for me. I’ve been playing their equipment for a long time, and the tour reps know me and they know how to custom-fit me with equipment that brings out the best in my game. I’m really pleased to be known as a Ping player.”
As part of their arrangement, Ortiz will play 11 Ping clubs, in addition to wearing a Ping hat and carrying a company staff bag.
