While I wasn't aware of that, PING is a huge junior golf sponsor (from experience)as well. Very giving. It is pretty heartwarming they do things like this too. Great company to work with on all aspects. Fwiw, I play titleist now and kind of wished I didn't after a story like that.
I am a 100% PING golf equipment player now. My first set of quality irons were PING as was my first quality putter. As my love for golf grew I experimented with several brands and now, 50 years after picking up my father's old 1950 circa Spaulding's dirty and rusting in the corner of our garage I've gone back to the clubs I first called my own. G-20 driver and fairway woods and all PING irons plus a PING putter. These will be the last I ever buy unless they break and I will most likely just have them replaced if that happens.
PING is a great American company that has always supported youth golf and now, unknown to me, is also supporting our wounded warriors...bravo for PING!
