PING Press Release: PING signs Aaron Baddeley to equipment contract

PHOENIX (Oct. 12, 2016) – Four-time PGA Tour winner Aaron Baddeley, whose most recent victory came in July with a PING G LS Tec driver and G 3-wood, has signed an agreement to play PING equipment, PING Chairman & CEO John A. Solheim announced today.

Baddeley, 35, will play his first event as a PING pro at this week’s season-opening event, the Safeway Open. Baddeley had five top 10’s in the 2015-16 season and has amassed 43 top 10’s since turning pro in 2000. He has earned more than $19 million in prize money.

“Aaron has shown a great deal of talent over the years, he has a positive attitude, and he has a home in Scottsdale so we’ve gotten a chance to know him and his family,” Solheim said. “He has played PING equipment at times in his career so he feels like a natural fit for our brand on and off the course. He’s had a star quality since his successful amateur days, and he has a set of values that are in line with ours. We’re excited to be associated with Aaron.”

Baddeley (nickname “Badds”) was born in New Hampshire but raised in Australia since age 2 and he has dual U.S. and Australian citizenship. He said he is well-acquainted with PING clubs and the company’s tour reps. “I’m thrilled to be representing a brand that enjoys the reputation it does. I know from first-hand experience how good PING equipment is, and I’m excited to be part of the PING family. This feels like a really good step in my career and I’m extremely motivated for the upcoming season to continue the success I enjoyed last season. With PING clubs I have a lot of confidence I can do that.” 

As part of a multi-year agreement, Baddeley will wear a PING hat, carry a PING staff bag and play a minimum of 11 PING clubs, including a PING driver and PING putter. At the Safeway Open, in addition to the G LS Tec driver and G 3-wood, he’ll make his PING debut with iBlade irons and a PING prototype putter.

Financial terms and the length of the agreement were not disclosed.
