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.

What are the best Srixon irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Srixon irons. WRXer ‘dgarland’ wants to know what our members feel are the best recent Srixon irons but doesn’t want blades included in the conversation. Our members have been sharing their picks 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.

  • MMB1500: “745s all day. I still play my set frequently, despite also having the ZX-5s.”
  • dmeeksDC: “I like the clean look of the 745 the most, and the performance can’t be beaten.”
  • BCULaw: “Z785 for me. It was just a perfect blend of forged feel with unexpected distance and forgiveness. I had a set of z745s and two sets of zx7s. Both were really nice sets, but I enjoyed the 785s more and played better golf with them.”
  • T.B.: “The 585 are basically point and shoot for me. Very predictable. I’ve hit lots of irons trying to find something better and just keep going back to these. All that said, lol, I have plans on this winter finding some ZX5 heads and shafting them up.”
