Ping signs Eddie Pepperell
As Englishman makes offer to Prince Harry
Ping has signed up Eddie Pepperell on a multi-year equipment deal. Eddie will be all Pinged up , as it were, as he will be wearing a Pink hat and carry a Ping staff bag as well as playing the clubs. It seems Eddie’s antics on Twitter also endeared him to the bosses at Ping and once again he amused his audience with an offer to Prince Harry.
Following the announcement of Duke and Duchess of Sussex, aka Prince Harry and Meghan Markel Pepperell issued an offer to Harry to become his caddy.
We are not sure what Harry will think of the generous offer but we sense he may prefer to send Meghan out to work.
Back to Ping. Eddie is currently playing 14 Ping clubs, including a G410 Plus driver (9°), G410 5-wood (17.5° at 16°), i210 irons (3-PW), Glide Forged wedges (52°, 56°, 60°) and Custom PLD PrimeTyne putter.
He will make his debut as a PING staff player at the South African Open at Randpark Golf Club in Johannesburg this week.
“Eddie is one of the most popular players on the European Tour and we are very pleased that he has chosen to represent PING,” said Ping President, John K. Solheim. “With two European Tour victories already to his name, we look forward to supporting him going forward and wish him continued success. I enjoy his humour on social media. He’s fun to follow and always keeps things interesting.”
And another thing...
