PING Europe claimed the coveted Supplier of the Year award at the annual Foremost Awards, held at Harrogate’s Majestic Hotel on 9th October.

The company also notched two further important awards on the night, Driver of the Year and Iron of the Year, both for the acclaimed G25 family.

Remarkably, it was the sixth year in a row that the Gainsborough-based company have won the night’s biggest award, marking the unrivalled consistency offered.

PING Europe Managing Director John Clark was present to collect the award on the night:

“At PING, we’re committed to maintaining standards and working as hard as ever for the green grass professional. Collecting this prestigious award for the sixth year is testament to the professionalism of the entire team at PING Europe.

“Everyone knows it’s been a tough twelve months for the UK golf industry. The fact that we’ve maintained our standards throughout is something I’m immensely proud of.”

The three awards crown another successful year, which began with the launch of the G25 family in January, the latest evolution of the renowned ‘G’ franchise. The driver has subsequently found its way into the bags of some of the world’s best Tour players, including Lee Westwood and Bubba Watson.
