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.

Bettinardi and Hasbro unveil limited-edition Monopoly Golf collection

Published

on

In conjunction with Hasbro, Bettinardi Golf has collaborated with one of America’s most iconic board games, Monopoly.

The two have produced a wide range of products that will launch online over the course of three days and include putters, wedges, headcovers, metal accessories, bags, and apparel, as well as the first-ever Monopoly board game machined entirely from one piece of metal.

“Playing Monopoly with my family was an absolute staple growing up in the Bettinardi household, like many kids around the country. It’s all about nostalgia, and I really wanted to bring Monopoly’s iconic designs and branding, with the fun factor of what we do at The Hive to not only our customers but Monopoly’s fanatical customer base as well. The iconic game pieces, colorways, and characters, along with our own beloved Bettinardi icons, made the design process exciting, but also endless with the amount of fun we had designing this amazing release.” – Sam Bettinardi, President of Bettinardi Golf

Additionally, Bettinardi Golf plans to pay homage to the game itself by including a “Game of Chance” purchasing opportunity in which customers can test their luck to receive a myriad of strikingly designed products.

This limited-edition collaboration will be launched across three days, beginning on Tuesday, August 23rd at 10 a.m. CST, with additional launches on Wednesday, August 24th, and Thursday, August 25th at 10 a.m. CST.

Each launch day will present new items available for purchase, and all three launches will be available exclusively in the Hive at www.bettinardi.com. Early token-gated access will be available for Bee Keeper Society NFT holders.
