Bubba's got a brand new glove.
In last week's Farmers Insurance Open, Bubba Watson sported a new Ping Sensor Cool glove, but instead of a normal endorsement deal, Ping will contribute annually to the Bubba Watson Foundation.
“I’m excited to partner with Ping by wearing the new Sensor Sport glove and at the same time help raise funds for my foundation,” the 2012 Masters champ said. “The more gloves we sell, the more people we’ll help. I hope golfers get behind this program. They’ll get a high-performance glove and contribute to great causes.”
“It was Bubba’s idea and it fits his desire to use his status in the game to assist charities that are doing good work in their communities," said John A. Solheim, Ping's chairman and CEO. "Bubba and his wife Angie have big hearts, and this arrangement will help them further their efforts.”
The new line of gloves include three different models: the Sensor Sport, Sensor Tour and Sensor Tech. You can purchase these gloves beginning in the middle of February for $14-$24.
