Our Kinda Solider: Ping's Marty Jertson
He's played in the US PGA and designed the Ping iBlade's
Words: Daniel Owen
So designing golf clubs is a job for rocket scientists and engineers, rather than good golfers. However there is a exception to the rule. Marty Jertson, Ping's Director of Product Development is also really good at golf. Like silly good.
A PGA Professional, Marty has qualified for the US PGA Championships on several occasions, and has reached final qualifying at the Open Championship. We caught up with him at Ping's HQ in Phoenix Arizona and found out why being good at golf can help create better golf clubs.
