PING staff player Jeff Maggert became the 17th player in Champions Tour history to win in his debut at the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic on Sunday.
The 50-year-old American, with three PGA Tour titles to his name including the 1999 WGC-Matchplay, carded a final-round 68 to capture his first title since the 2006 St Jude Classic.
Maggert fell into a tie for the lead with Billy Andrade after making bogey on the 16th but responded with an astonishing 50-foot putt to take the lead.
''I was just trying to hit an easy lag putt,'' said Maggert, who went on to clinch a two-shot victory. ''I wanted an easy tap-in for par and it was just one of those things – the ball found the hole.''
The PING loyalist trusted the PING G25 driver, fairway and hybrid, new S55 irons, Gorge Tour wedges and Anser Milled putter.
