Tony Finau has signed with Ping and will play 11 of the brand’s clubs, and use a PING Tour bag.
One of the longest hitters on Tour, Finau bagged the PING G400 Max driver at the Sony Open, and led in distance at last week’s Farmers Insurance Open with an average of 325.6 yards.
“I’m honored to become part of the PING Tour team,” said the 22-year-old. “The family atmosphere, people and core values at the company really spoke to me. I’ve played their equipment for the last year and have gotten to know their tour reps and the engineering team in Phoenix very well in the process.
"I’m most impressed with their passion for designing the best equipment in the game for golfers of all skill levels, and I know that their commitment to properly fitting and building equipment to fit my game will maximize my confidence every time I step on the tee.”
The six foot four inch, 200-pound American turned pro in 2015, winning for the first time at the 2016 Puerto Rico Open.
“Tony is very charismatic and has tremendous character,” Solheim said. “He’s great with the fans and well-respected by his fellow tour players. He’s one of the most athletic players on tour who uses his strength to generate a lot of power -– he can really hit the ball a long way and has the overall game to become a consistent winner on tour.
"We’ve developed a great relationship with him in the last year as he’s looked to play the best equipment available for his game. We believe it’s a great fit for both of us.”
