2012 Ping Watson The Masters

    Bubba Watson Wins with PING at the 2012 Masters   By John Fritz of 2nd Swing Golf     Clubmaker PING appears to be riding a wave of interest and publicity after Bubba Watson, a PING Tour staff player, won the 2012 Masters Tournament Sunday in scintillating fashion over fellow PING-er Louis Oosthuizen.
