Tony Finau, a PGA Tour winner and one of the longest hitters on tour, has signed a multi-year agreement to represent PING, the equipment company has announced.
The 28-year-old Salt Lake City star led the just-completed Farmers Insurance Open with an average drive of 325.6 yards, and is second on tour in average driving distance at 328.8 yards. He switched to the new PING G400 Max driver at this season’s Sony Open.
He will make his debut as a PING Pro at this week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open.
Finau turned pro out of high school at age 17 and earned his PGA Tour card for the 2015 season with a win on the Web.com Tour in 2014. In 2016, he won the Puerto Rico Open on the PGA Tour.
‘I’m honored to become part of the PING Tour team,’ said Finau.
‘The family atmosphere, people and core values at the company really spoke to me. I’ve played their equipment for the last year and have gotten to know their tour reps and the engineering team in Phoenix very well in the process. I’m most impressed with their passion for designing the best equipment in the game for golfers of all skill levels, and I know that their commitment to properly fitting and building equipment to fit my game will maximize my confidence every time I step on the tee.’
As part of a multi-year agreement, Finau will carry a PING staff bag and play a minimum of 11 PING clubs.
