PING Signs Harris English to Equipment Contract

(PHOENIX) – Two-time PGA Tour winner Harris English has signed an agreement to play PING equipment, PING Chairman & CEO John A. Solheim announced today.

English, 27, will play this week’s Sony Open in Hawaii as PING’s newest PGA Tour staff member. He’ll play PING’s G driver, 3- and 5-woods, iBlade irons, Glide 2.0 wedges and a Cadence TR Ketsch putter.

“We’re very excited to welcome Harris back to the PING team,” Solheim said. “Our relationship dates back to his junior golf days and throughout his distinguished college career at the University of Georgia. We watched his pro career advance quickly from the Tour to the PGA Tour, where he won twice as a PING professional. He has a wonderful all-around game and he’s a proven winner. He’s a great addition to our staff.”

“It feels great to have a PING bag with my name on it again,” said English, a four-time collegiate All-American who won the 2013 FedEx St. Jude Classic and 2014 OHL Classic at Mayakoba as a PING pro. “I’m very excited to be a member of the PING tour staff and to get the season started this week in Honolulu.  I have a lot of comfort and confidence with the clubs in my bag and the people at PING who design and build them for me. Their focus on engineering the highest-performing equipment gives me the best chance to play my best golf.”

As part of a multi-year agreement, English will carry a PING staff bag and play a minimum of 11 PING clubs, including a PING driver and PING putter.

Financial terms and the length of the agreement were not disclosed.
