Was it one time, and is it still, true that a PING touring pro:

  • Is required to carry only PING clubs in their bag, from driver through putter, with no exceptions? And,
  • If a PING pro wins a PGA Tour event, PING sends him a gold-plated putter of the one he used in the tournament?

They have loosened up on the club requirements, some staff have all 14 Ping clubs in their bags.  Many staff players, however, have 2-3 others.  Most common is FW woods and wedges from other OEM. Finau is the only staff player i know with a non-Ping putter.

 

PGA winners still get a gold putter, with one added to the vault at headquarters.

Thanks.

So a solid gold putter, not a gold plated? That is pretty sweet.
