Stewart Cink has signed a multi-year agreement to join the Ping staff, and he'll debut as a Ping staffer at the Sony Open in Hawaii.
Cink signed an 11-club deal with Ping's parent company, and he'll play the company's driver and putter. At Waialae Country Club this week, Cink will play a Ping G400 LST driver, Ping G400 fairway woods, Ping i25 irons (4-UW) and a Sigma 2 Arna putter.
Cink will also wear a Ping logo on both sides of his hat, and he'll carry a Ping staff bag.
“Stewart has a long track record of success and overall consistency, evidenced by his wins, top 10s in majors, and the fact that he has competed on five U.S. Ryder Cup
teams and in four Presidents Cups,” Ping president John K. Solheim said. “He has instant credibility, and we know him well because he has played Ping irons for many years. Our tour staff has been impressed by his professionalism and his knowledge of equipment. We’re delighted to be associated with Stewart.”
Cink had previously been on staff with TaylorMade Golf on the metalwoods side of things, but he had been playing Ping irons.
“Coming over to Ping and formalizing our relationship is a great fit for me,” Cink said. “I have relied on PING irons for years and the tour guys always go out of their way to take care of my equipment needs and make me feel at home.”
