Ping must be over the moon with young gun Tom Lewis, the newest staff professional to be wielding their clubs.

The 20-year-old Englishman was carrying a bag of 14 Ping clubs when, in just his 3rd European Tour event as a professional, the former Walker Cup star went out and stunned the field by winning the Portugal Masters.

His historic achievement, which broke Tiger Woods’s record of winning in his 5th start as a professional, was made to look all that much better by the ice-cool, almost ruthless way in which he swept past the three faltering front runners in the final round with a blistering 65.

The clubs that carried him through to victory and the two-year Tour exemption that comes with it were as follows:

Lewis’s clubs

– Ping G20 9.5 Driver (Aldila Voodoo XNV6 shaft) Club head speed 112mph)

– Ping G5 3 and 5 fairway woods (Aldila XVS7 & NV75X shafts)

– Ping S56 irons (3 to PW X100 Step Strong, Std length Black Colour Code, All grips, id8 ½ Cord white

– Ping Anser Wedges Red Lie 52, purple lie 58

– Ping Scottsdale Wolverine H putter (33.5″ Red Lie)
