Oosthuizen commits to Ping with multi-year agreement
November 29, 2010

Louis Oosthuizen with John A. Solheim2010 Open champion Louis Oosthuizen has committed the next stage of his golf career to Ping golf equipment, after signing a multi-year agreement with John A. Solheim, Ping Chairman & CEO.

As part of the agreement, Oosthuizen will wear a Ping hat, carry a Ping staff bag and play a minimum of 11 Ping clubs, including a Ping driver and Ping putter. Financial terms and the length of the agreement were not disclosed.

This summer, Oosthuizen captured his first major with a dominating, seven-stroke win in The Open Championship at St. Andrews, his second victory of the year and one of seven top-10 finishes for the season. His opening round 7-under 65 was the lowest opening round by a winner in the history of The Open Championship. He was No. 1 in driving accuracy and made 20 birdies for the week.

Oosthuizen's consistent play has propelled him to 23rd in the Official World Golf Ranking.

He’s currently playing Ping’s new S56 irons, Tour-S Rustique wedges, a Redwood Anser putter, and a Rapture V2 driver.

Louis Oosthuizen's  driver: the Ping Rapture V228-year-old Oosthuizen makes his home in Pinnacle Point, South Africa, and has two European Tour titles. “Ping’s equipment allows me to get the most from my game and reach my potential,” he said. “And on Tour they’re always right there when I need them. They understand my game and give me a comfort level so I can go out and play with confidence.”
