Cabrera becomes first Ping player to win Masters

Posted at 11:07 PM by David Dusek | Categories: Angel Cabrera, Masters, Ping, Winner's Bag

AUGUSTA, Ga. – Ping Golf received a huge 50th anniversary present on Sunday evening. At 7:32 Eastern time, Trevor Immelman slipped a green jacket on Angel Cabrera in Butler Cabin at Augusta National.

Cabrera becomes the first Ping staff player to ever win a Masters title.

As is tradition, Ping will now make a solid gold replica of the putter Cabrera used to win the tournament, and place it in a vault in the company's Scottsdale headquarters. This video gives you an inside look into the vault.

PING_Tour_Wedge60TS Cabrera's i-Series 1/2 Craz-E putter tips the scales at 385 grams. With the current price of gold at $879 an ounce, that's $27,249 worth of bling!

Cabrera also had a new lob wedge in the bag at Augusta. Ping's new Tour W TS wedge (Thin Sole) is just arriving in pro shops. It is designed to provide players with the ability to hit better shots off thin, tight lies. Like other Tour W wedges, the TS has a tungsten toe weight and a small thermoplastic urethane insert to increase the moment of inertia and enhance feel.

Once again, here is a complete list of all the clubs in Cabrera's bag at the Masters:

Driver:                Rapture (7.5°)
Fairway wood:  Rapture V2 (15.5°)
Irons:                 G10 (2), S57 (3-PW)
Wedges:             Ping Tour-W (54°),  Tour W TS (60°)
Putter:                i Series 1/2 Craz-E B
