In addition to a $10,000 upfront contribution, PING is supporting “Bubba & Friends Drive to a Million” by donating $300 for every drive he hits 300 yards or more (up to 300 drives) in 2012. PING’s fundraising event is called, “Bubba Long in Pink. Driven by PING.” All funds raised will go to Phoenix-area charities, chosen by PING with Bubba’s support.
On the season, more than 63% of Watson’s drives have traveled 300-plus yards, the highest percentage on tour of anyone who has played at least 12 rounds. He next competes at the Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club, Feb. 16-19.
