PING purchases Geiberger's 59 putter

The putter that Al Geiberger used to shoot the first 59 recorded on the PGA Tour is staying in the PING family.

Last month, Geiberger auctioned off a large portion of his golf memorabilia through Green Jacket Auctions, including the clubs, putter and hat he wore during the historic round at the 1977 Memphis Classic. 

While it's unclear who bought the clubs and hat, PING confirmed the PING Pal putter was already back at the company's headquarters in Phoenix after it was purchased for a whopping $7,222.

The putter will be displayed outside PING Chairman & CEO John Solheim's office in a trophy case alongside several other clubs, including a gold-plated version of Bubba Watson's Tour-S wedge (the wedge used to hit the winning shot from the trees at the 2012 Masters), Louis Oosthuizen's S56 4-iron (albatross at par-5 2nd during 2012 Masters), and a replica of Angel Cabrera's i-Series 1/2 Craz-E putter from the 2009 Masters.
