Ping signed Sahith Theegala, winner of the 2020 Haskins Award as the best player in men’s college golf, to an endorsement contract.
Theegala, 22, shown above, also received the prestigious Ben Hogan Award, which considers all amateur competition over the past 12 months.
“We’re delighted by the success Sahith has enjoyed at every level, and for all the awards and accolades coming his way — they are well deserved,” said Ping President John K. Solheim. “He’s played Ping clubs for years, so we’ve had a front-row seat for his steady rise. We’ve watched him win and see him battle back from injury to win again, which is evidence of his commitment and desire to succeed at the highest level.”
“It’s really gratifying to reach this point where I can pursue my lifelong dream, and the people at Ping have been an important part of my support network,” said Theegala. “Ping clubs have always felt comfortable, they fit my swing perfectly and provide me the confidence I need to take this next step in my career. I’m looking forward to representing Ping, a company that enjoys a reputation for engineering the highest-performing golf equipment in the world.”
