Four-time PGA Tour champion Aaron Baddeley has signed an equipment contract with Ping, the company announced on Wednesday. The 35-year-old most recently won the 2016 Barbasol Championship in July with a Ping G LS Tec driver and a Ping G 3-wood in his bag.

“I’m thrilled to be representing a brand that enjoys the reputation it does,” Baddeley said in a statement. “I know from first-hand experience how good Ping equipment is, and I’m excited to be part of the Ping family. This feels like a really good step in my career and I’m extremely motivated for the upcoming season to continue the success I enjoyed last season. With Ping clubs I have a lot of confidence I can do that.”

The multi-year agreement requires that Baddeley wears a Ping hat, uses a Ping staff bag, and plays a minimum of 11 Ping clubs, including driver and putter, according to a press release from the company.

“Aaron has shown a great deal of talent over the years, he has a positive attitude, and he has a home in Scottsdale so we’ve gotten a chance to know him and his family,” Ping Chairman and CEO John A. Solheim said in a statement. “He has played Ping equipment at times in his career so he feels like a natural fit for our brand on and off the course. He’s had a star quality since his successful amateur days, and he has a set of values that are in line with ours. We’re excited to be associated with Aaron.”

Baddeley is in the field at this week’s 2016 Safeway Championship, and Ping has confirmed that he will be gaming iBlade irons and a Ping prototype putter, in addition to his familiar G LS Tec driver and G 3-wood.

        PING is a Christian company so it makes a lot of sense from that standpoint.

        I tried to persuade him to a devil company like Callaway or Taylormade but he stuck to his guns and went with Mr. Jesus

        Guess Ping won’t be remaking the “Badds” commercial that he did for MacGregor with the convertible and the three girls in the backseat.

What GolfWRXers are saying about Mizuno’s ST-Z fairway woods

Published

In our forums, our members have been discussing Mizuno’s ST-Z fairway woods. WRXer ‘Kale_m’ is in the market for a fairway wood and reaches out to fellow members for feedback on the Mizuno ST-Z, and our members have been sharing their reviews of the club in our forum.

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.

  • bryanwmilburn: “I have the 3 wood with Ventus Black 7X, and it’s the best fairway I’ve ever owned.”
  • JMB83: “I played the 3 wood with Ventus Blue 6s this past weekend, and it was a weapon off the tee. I really like the deep face for that purpose, and I appreciate the more neutral to open setup at 14*. The feel is unbelievable too.”
  • JDW3: “Got mine out on the course today. I hit it really well off the deck and off the tee. I really like that the lie angle is a little flatter. Looking forward to getting out this weekend to get in some more testing.”
  • Kale_m: “Ummmm, this thing is a cannon…Best looking 3w ever though. Turned it down a notch, and it sits perfect. A hook is my miss with the 3w. Not 1 with this in about 15 balls I hit.”

Srixon ZX7 vs Srixon 785 irons – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been pitting Srixon’s ZX7 irons against the brand’s 785 irons. WRXer ‘AbSWFPGA’ is currently playing the company’s 745 irons and reaches out to members for feedback on the ZX7’s and 785’s, and WRXers have been sharing their experiences with both in our forums.

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.

  • tssgj65: “I played the 785 last season. Went ahead and bought the ZX7 because of the hype. Same shaft in both, but for whatever reason, I am back with the 785. Probably no different than any other iron change, but as of now, I feel more confident with the 785’s.”
  • KPH808: “I’ve had both sets with the same shafts as well. I prefer the 785s, but the ZX7s look much better. I had the 785s in the bag for a while, but the ZX7s lasted only a few rounds.”
  • ace036: “I had the ZX7’s and also ended up going back to my Z785’s. I prefer the shape and longer blade length appearance of the Z785’s. The slightly wider sole works better for me as well.”
  • Haber: “I’ve had my Z785’s for almost 2 years now. Hoping I can go a couple more without switching. I recently demoed the zx7 and the apex pro for fun. Zx7 felt very similar and looked fantastic. Apex pro launched higher and carried a little further, but the sound and feel of the cup face made them an instant turn off. Couldn’t discern too much between the 2 Srixon offerings, so I will be sticking with my z785’s until the next round of temptation hits. I will say dollar for dollar Srixon irons are the best value in the golf market. Hundreds cheaper than the other guys and amazing quality.”
