Inside Ping's Golden Putter Vault

Forget Wonka's Golden Ticket, we want a Ping Golden Putter

Inside Ping's Golden Putter VaultSo we visited the world famous Ping Putter vault. It's the home to the closest thing golf has to Willy Wonka's golden tickets. In what has become a modern golfing legend, every tournament winner on the major tours around the world who wins using a Ping Putter gets two gold plated putters made in their honour. One goes to the player, one stays in the vault. If they manage to win a major, they become two 24ct solid gold putters. Pricey. This small gesture has turned into a big deal over the years, so we went into the vault to find out more about this Ping tradition.
