David Edwards reveals new PING "plumbing" club
May 27, 2011

It might be a long way from the titanium heads and graphite shafts used by most golfers these days but trick shot maestro David Edwards certainly isn't plumbing the depths with the latest addition to his golf bag.

The record breaking former European Tour professional is never one to rest on his laurels and has "tapped" into the creative expertise of leading golf equipment manufacturer PING to develop a club with a difference.

David's new plumbing club consists of a driver head and a shaft made out of not one but several plumbing pipes joined together. To dispel any doubts about the club's inspiration there is even a red turning tap attached to one of the pipes.

The plumbing club joins a weird and wonderful selection of golf equipment such as a cricket bat club, a fishing rod club, a club with a shaft made of a hose pipe, a club with in hinge in the middle of the shaft and a club where the driver head is fitted at the end of a golf umbrella.

"My golf trick show has seen a huge growth in popularity in the last year. I think the new clubs add to the fun and the quality of experience it delivers to the audience and ensures it never stays the same. The plumbing club is a new challenge for me to master as it is relatively hard to hit but there are plenty more in the pipeline!"

Dave Fanning, PING's European Marketing Manager commented: "PING is delighted with the tremendous success of David's show. He has great energy and enthusiasm for continuing to develop new ideas. As far as we can fit a club-head at one end and the grip at the other we can deliver virtually any kind of club for David. PING is a highly respected brand but working with David allows us to show the fun side of the business."

David will showcase the plumbing club and the rest of his golfing arsenal in a busy schedule of appearances at major golf events over the summer. He will be performing at the PowerPlay Golf event at Celtic Manor on May 30th where the men's and women's US Open champions Graeme McDowell and Paula Creamer will be among the competitors. David has also been invited to appear at the Solheim Cup at Killeen Castle in Ireland on Thursday 22 September.

David is internationally renowned for his trademark "scissor shots." He set the record at the Scottish Golf Show in 2010 by hitting 312 golf balls in three minutes.
