Lee Westwood won his 40th career title Saturday with a five-stroke victory at the Nordea Masters at the Bro Hot Slott GC, in Stockholm, Sweden. He relied on new i20 irons and a Nome 355 putter. Leading by three to start the final round, he pulled away with an eagle at 12 and a birdie at 15. He said the new clubs will make the trip to the U.S. Open. “They’ve earned the right to say in. You’re never too sure first time in the bag, but they fit the clubs so well to m. It’s part of being with PING for 26 years. They know exactly what I want.”
PHOENIX (May 8, 2012) – PING’s Hoofer® carry bag has won Gold on the 2012 Golf Digest “Hot List” ranking of the industry’s highest-performing products. The results are published in the June issue of the magazine.
In recognizing the Hoofer, editors singled out its dual sliding shoulder pads and innovative strap slider, which provides a backpack-style fit and makes the bag easy to slide on and off. These features are part of PING’s Enhanced Ergonomics (E2®), which includes a leg-retention strap that keeps the legs snug while walking. A reinforced bracket with leg stops ensures stable, secure leg extension on all surfaces. At approximately 5 pounds, the Hoofer has a roomy five-way, reinforced top to make club removal and replacement easy. Eight pockets include those for valuables, a range-finder, and apparel.
“The Hoofer is a wonderful example of how E2 has enabled us to advance comfort, adjustability and durability while ensuring that our bags can be fit to any player’s body type and carrying style,” said John A. Solheim, PING Chairman & CEO. “At PING, our emphasis on innovation, performance and custom-fitting extends well beyond golf clubs. The Hoofer winning ‘Hot List’ Gold is further validation of our efforts to make sure every product carrying the PING name is the highest quality.”
Of the 65 bags tested, only eight were awarded Gold. Including the Silvers given to its 4 Series® and Pioneer® bags, PING tied for the most awards.
