Tee Times USA and Golfsmith Florida Stores announced today they are extending the current Facebook Promotion through March 31, 2014. The promotional give-away also partners with Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort, Florida’s First Coast of Golf, and PING.
Recently, Tee Times USA and Golfsmith received confirmation that PING would be donating the brand new 2014 PING i25 driver and Hoofer Bag to the promotion. After receiving word that one of the hottest drivers to hit the golf market in 2014 is part of this great prize package, it was clear the right thing to do was extend the promotion for another month, said Marc Bender of Tee Times USA. The PING i25 driver (which retails for $400) received the Golf Digest GOLD award their 2014 Golf Equipment Hot List. Additionally, the PING i25 received a perfect five-star rating for performance from Golf Digest Golf Equipment Hot List. Golf Digest’s reviews on the new PING i25 claim its “more forgiving and playable: an upgrade from the i20.” PING’s website says, “The adjustable i25 driver is focused on reduced spin, accurate alignment, and effective shaft fitting for maximizing distance and finding fairways. Tungsten weighting lowers the CG and raises the MOI to increase forgiveness and improve accuracy. This Ti 8-1-1 driver also offers two industry-first design attributes: patented racing stripes on the crown to aid in alignment, and an innovative PWR shaft family that maintains a constant swing weight across every offering.”
The PING Hoofer bag is a 2012 winner of the Golf Digest Hot List GOLD award, where PING references that “editors singled out its dual sliding shoulder pads and innovative strap slider, which provides a backpack-style fit and makes the bag easy to slide on and off. These features are part of PING's Enhanced Ergonomics (E2®), which includes a leg-retention strap that keeps the legs snug while walking. A reinforced bracket with leg stops ensures stable, secure leg extension on all surfaces. At approximately 5 pounds, the Hoofer has a roomy five-way, reinforced top to make club removal and replacement easy. Eight pockets include those for valuables, a range-finder, and apparel.”
The lucky winner will receive a five component prize package. First, a 4-Round, 3-Night stay at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort, which recently completed an $85 million renovation to the AAA Four-Diamond property and is home of Big Break Florida as seen on Golf Channel. Second, the winner receives a brand new 2014 PING i25 driver. Third, a PING Hoofer golf bag. Fourth, the winner receives a golfTEC club fitting, utilizing a launch monitor data & SwingLabs database of over 1,000 club/shaft combinations to find the golfer’s precise fit for every club in the bag; this is a tour-level fitting. Fifth, the winner will schedule a full swing-analysis with Golfsmith where the golfers swing will be analyzed and suggestions will be made that have practical application and are realistic for the golfer. As part of the swing analysis, the golfer receives a DVD to take with them.
