GolfTEC’s Jon Levy and Dave Pauley¬†take you on an exclusive tour inside Ping Headquarters

By Jon Levy

It’s not every day that¬†you receive exclusive access into one of your favorite golf club manufacturers.

But – with¬†a word to the wise – if and when that day does come, you’d better make the most¬†of it.

Which is¬†exactly what GolfTEC’s Director of Merchandise &¬†Club Fitting, Dave Pauley, and I did recently when we received exclusive, behind-the-scenes access at Ping Headquarters in Phoenix, Ariz.

The tech-forward company, which has maintained its position as one of the most innovative golf equipment manufacturers since the 1950s, opened their doors to a couple of eager club geeks who took advantage of every minute of the incredible experience.

As seen in¬†our¬†video and image gallery below, we received a private factory tour with extra¬†stops at the famous Ping Vault¬†and Ping Putting Lab, as well as a¬†personal club fitting from lead product engineer, Marty Jertson. We may¬†also have come across another surprise or two … but we’ll save that for the video.

On¬†that note, we’ll¬†let you be the judge of how we did with our day¬†at Ping. If the gold bling emanating from our faces in the image above is any indication, though, it’s easy to see our experience was enlightening – one any golf fan will appreciate.
