PING celebrates Hunter Mahan’s newborn with gold-plated putter

Recommended Posts


Cool gesture from an equipment sponsor...





PHOENIX (August 20, 2013) – PING's long-held gold-plated-putter tradition experienced a first today when Hunter Mahan was presented a gold-plated Scottsdale® TR™ Anser2 inscribed with his daughter's name, birthdate and vital statistics.


Golf fans recall that in July Mahan was leading the RBC Canadian Open after two rounds when he got a call that his wife, Kandi, was in labor in Dallas. Only minutes from beginning the third round, Mahan immediately withdrew from the event and flew home for the birth of his first child, Zoe.


“We'll never know if Hunter would have held on to win that week,” said John Solheim, PING Chairman & CEO. “But the circumstances were so unique, we wanted to create a lasting memory for Hunter, Kandi and Zoe that would forever remind them of that special day. The birth of a child is a win any way you look at it, so we thought we'd have some fun with it. As is our tradition, we made two gold-plated versions of his Scottsdale TR Anser2 putter. One was given to Hunter and the other will reside in our Gold Putter Vault with more than 2,800 PING putters in Phoenix.”


"That is really cool and above and beyond,” Mahan said from The Barclays, the first event in the FedExCup Playoffs. “I really appreciate this."
