“We’re delighted by the success Sahith has enjoyed at every level, and for all the awards and accolades coming his way -- they are well deserved,” Solheim said. “He’s played PING clubs for years, so we’ve had a front-row seat for his steady rise. We’ve watched him win and seen him battle back from injury to win again, which is evidence of his commitment and desire to succeed at the highest level. We’re thrilled to have him as part of the PING team.”
Theegala is excited to begin his quest to earn his PGA Tour card as a member of PING’s staff. “It’s really gratifying to reach this point where I can pursue my lifelong dream, and the people at PING have been an important part of my support network,” he said. “PING clubs have always felt comfortable, they fit my swing perfectly, and provide me the confidence I need to take this next step in my career. I’m looking forward to representing PING, a company that enjoys a reputation for engineering the highest-performing golf equipment in the world.”
Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. The contract requires Theegala to carry a minimum of 11 PING clubs, two of which must be a driver and putter. He will wear PING-branded headwear and have a PING Tour staff bag. Currently in his bag: a G410 LST driver, G410 hybrid, iBlade and Blueprint irons, Glide 2.0 wedges, and a PING TR 1966 Anser 2 putter.
