Happy Birthday, Bubba Watson! Ping got you the gift that keeps on giving year after year.
The equipment manufacturer announced its “lifetime” contract with two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson on Thursday. Terms of the agreement were not released.
“I’ve been playing Ping equipment since I was a kid,” said Watson. “So basically my whole life. I love the company and truly believe Ping is committed to making the best equipment. I can’t thank the Solheim family enough for their support during my career. Ping and the Solheim family have played a huge role in my golf career and my life. I’m very grateful they’ve put their faith in me to represent them for the rest of my career.”
The 42-year-old, who will make his 12th Masters appearance next week at Augusta National Golf Club, has played Ping clubs since he was 8 years old.

“I remember signing my first contract with Ping and thinking how blessed I was to be representing such an amazing company that treated me like family,” Watson said. “Without Ping’s support I do not know if I would have achieved my dream of playing golf for a living. I’m proud to have the Ping name on my bag when I’m competing on the PGA Tour. Like I said when I won my first Masters, ‘I never got this far in my dreams.’ Being with Ping for the rest of my career makes it even more special.”
“We’re extremely excited to make this announcement,” said Ping president John K. Solheim. “We understand it is unique in the sports endorsement world, but so is Bubba. He’s done a lot for Ping over his amazing career and we felt the time was right to make this commitment to him. His skill level and creativity on the golf course have defined his career, but his generosity and compassion are what make him a great fit for PING. He’s like family to us and we’re very happy he’ll be with us for the rest of his golf career.”
