Harris English signs equipment contract with Ping, apparel deal with Nike

Published

on

Two-time PGA Tour winner Harris English has signed an agreement to play Ping equipment.

English, 27, was previously a Ping staffer before signing with Callaway in 2014. Both his PGA Tour wins came as a Ping staffer (the 2013 FedEx St. Jude Classic and 2014 OHL Classic at Mayakoba), and he used Ping clubs at the University of Georgia where he was a four-time All-American.

English is currently the 76th ranked golfer in the Official World Golf Rankings. He will use the following Ping equipment this week at the Sony Open, according to the company:

  • Driver: Ping G
  • Fairway Woods: Ping G
  • Irons: Ping iBlade
  • Wedges: Glide 2.0
  • Putter: Ping Cadence TR Ketsch

“We’re very excited to welcome Harris back to the Ping team,” Ping Chairman and CEO John A. 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 Web.com 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.”

As part of the agreement, English will use a Ping staff bag and play a minimum of 11 Ping clubs including a Ping driver and Ping putter.

“It feels great to have a PING bag with my name on it again,” English said. “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.”

A social media post from Ping also indicates that English has signed a head-to-toe apparel deal with Nike (he can be seen wearing Nike golf shoes and a Nike hat), although Nike is yet to announce a partnership with the golfer.

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Member Tourseeking – Rare Cameron Maiden America cover

There are rare, and then there are really rare covers and this falls squarely in the really rare category. It’s priced according but would make a great addition to any collection.

Member slalomdude – Ping Hoofer Tour bag

Were used to seeing rare and hard to find, but it’s not often Ping releases something that captures attention like this. The bag is new with tags and is being offered at a great deal!

What GolfWRXers are saying about this ‘filthy good combo’

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been responding to a driver combo which one of our members swears by. The WRXer in question is ‘QuigleyDU’ who has paired up Taylormade’s Original One (13.5 degrees) with a Fujikura Ventus Red 9x (Tipped 1″). On the combo, ‘QuigleyDU’ says he uses it as a second option off the tee and praises its launch qualities.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • b.helts: “It sure looks good. I love the smaller size and the profile of the Original One. Been looking for an 11.5 to make up a short bag. But the 11.5 are rarer than hen’s teeth.”
  • BlueDragonKorea: “The creativity to build this club.. wow!”
  • Puttersaurus Rex: “Glad I clicked. Nice looking build! I also play driver, then OO mini. My mini is the 11.5 turned up. With Motore speeder 6.1 – not as beastly, but such a fun club. Mine is 43.5″, and is used as a safe option off the tee.”
  • bladehunter: “Ventus red – the underrated red-headed stepchild of the Ventus line. I love mine in a driver. If you’re a guy who doesn’t have a positive AOA with driver, try the red. Gets it up and doesn’t spin.”

Entire Thread: “This combo is filthy good”
