BTW, according to Golf Digest, no Bi-Matrix shaft option like Bubba's:

 

The driver is the same technologically as the regular G20 but boasts a pink club head (that comes with a matching pink head cover) and a bright pink shaft. The shaft is a high-balance-point Ping TFC 169D labeled, "Bubba Long in Pink. Driven by PING. Special Edition 2012." The pink G20 will be available in regular, stiff and ladies flexes and in lofts of 9.5, 10.5 and 12 degrees. A 10.5-degree model is available for lefties and a 12-degree version in women's. The MSRP on the club is $430. (The actual pink shaft on Watson's driver is a Grafalloy BiMatrx, and his loft is 8.5 degrees.)

I guess it will be more of a collectible, limited edition kind of thing. I personally wouldn't put it into play.

Not that I have any interest in buying a pink driver, but I think that it is very odd that they would release a Bubba Watson commemorative driver that has such limited options for left-handers (10.5 degree loft only?) and isn't even available in x-flex. At that price I would be surprised that they have much interest.

Driver: Cleveland Classic Custom 9 degrees with Matrix Black Tie Stiff Shaft

3 Wood: Nike VR Pro Limited edition with Diamana Ahina X-stiff shaft

3 hybrid: Adams A12 pro (20 degrees) with RIP X-stiff shaft

4-PW: Titleist AP2 with True Tember Dynamic Gold X-300 shaft

52 degree wedge: Cleveland CG15

56 degree Wedge: Titleist Vokey Spin Milled

60 degree wedge: Cleveland 588 forged

Putter: Edel custom with Flatso mid grip

Great question. 5,000 seems like a lot, though it is a big country/big world. June also seems like a long time from now. I know they can't just snap their fingers and make them appear, but I would think they'd be better off if they were selling them in the immediate wake of his win.
