Tyrrell Hatton, ranked No. 9 in the Official World Golf Ranking and winner of five European Tour events plus another on the PGA Tour, has re-signed to play Ping equipment. Terms of the deal were not revealed.
The 29-year-old Englishman most recently won the European Tour’s BMW Championship in October in the same week he put Ping’s new G425 driver into play. Hatton also uses Ping’s G425 LST fairway wood, G425 Crossover 3-iron, i210 irons (4-PW), a Glide 3.0 wedge and a Ping Vault Oslo putter.
“There’s a comfort level with the people at Ping and with their clubs tee to green that gives me a lot reassurance and confidence that I’m always in a good position to play my best golf,” Hatton said in a media release. “I have enjoyed working with Ping for a number of years now, and the team knows exactly what I need to compete at the highest level. I’m excited for the future knowing that I will continue to have Ping as part of my team”.
Hatton is also in prime position to play for Europe in this year’s Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin.
“You could hardly turn on a golf telecast over the past year and a half and not see Tyrrell among the leaders, and on a few occasions he’s been holding the trophy at the end,” John K. Solheim, Ping’s president, said in the media release. “Tyrrell has won six times since 2016 and has climbed to ninth in the Official World Golf Ranking. He’s brought the success he achieved on the European Tour over to the states, where last March he earned his first PGA Tour victory on a big stage at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. We appreciate his competitiveness and determination, and we’re proud to be associated with a truly international player who can compete with anyone, anywhere. His record of consistency proves that.”
