PING signs Tony Finau to equipment contract
PHOENIX (Jan. 30, 2018) – Tony Finau, a PGA Tour winner and one of the longest
hitters on tour, has signed a multi-year agreement to represent PING, company
President John K. Solheim announced today. The 28-year-old Salt Lake City native
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.
“Tony is very charismatic and has tremendous character,” Solheim said. “He’s
great with the fans and well-respected by his fellow tour players. He’s one of
the most athletic players on tour who uses his strength to generate a lot of
power -– he can really hit the ball a long way and has the overall game to
become a consistent winner on tour. We’ve developed a great relationship with
him in the last year as he’s looked to play the best equipment available for his
game. We believe it’s a great fit for both of us.”
At 6' 4" and 200 pounds, Finau was a premier high school athlete in several
sports, most notably basketball. But golf was his first passion, and he turned
pro out of high school at age 17. He 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.
Financial terms and the length of the agreement were not disclosed.
