A week after playing in the 79th Masters as an amateur, Corey Conners turned professional in advance of the RBC Heritage and on Thursday it was announced that he had also joined Ping's professional staff.

“Competing at Augusta, then turning pro and now signing with Ping, it’s been an incredibly rewarding and memorable time for me,” Conners said. “Making my professional debut on the PGA Tour is a huge honor, and I am looking forward to the challenge and playing the Ping equipment that I trust. I’m really happy to be affiliated with such a respected brand that’s known for its quality and innovation.”
