Tinley Park, IL: Bettinardi Golf announced the signing of LPGA Tour star Annie Park, to join their growing LPGA Tour presence, which includes China’s number one player Yu Liu. Annie will play her custom BB45 Long putter with a Tour Preferred F.I.T. Face Milling. Park, who finished her 2019 LPGA Tour season playing in 25 events, recorded three top-10 finishes, including a T3 finish at the Hugel-Air Premia LA Open, and was a member of Team USA for the Solheim Cup. Park, a college sensation at USC, helped the team win the 2013 NCAA Women’s Title, while winning four individual events including the NCAA Women’s Golf Individual title. In 2015, Annie finished first on the Symetra Tour’s money list to earn her LPGA Membership and won Rookie of The Year.
After making the switch to her BB45 Long Bettinardi putter at the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational, Annie went on to finish T6 in her very first event with a Bettinardi. Park credits much of her new confidence in her putting to having a better feel, and trusting the Bettinardi team to make her something so extremely custom.
“I am very excited to be joining the Bettinardi Tour Staff. After working with their Tour Department, and having the opportunity to visit Studio B in Chicago to see how everything is crafted in their own shop was truly remarkable. Everything I tested and requested was instantly relayed to Robert and Sam Bettinardi, and the team worked quickly to get me multiple prototypes that I could immediately put into play,” said Park.
“We’re excited about adding a proven LPGA winner and upcoming star to our growing Tour staff for 2020. Annie is a great talent on the course and off the course, someone who we’re proud to have part of the Bettinardi family,” said Sam Bettinardi, Vice President of Bettinardi Golf.
“When Annie visited us in Chicago, I had the pleasure of spending time with her, talking about her game, putting, and her motivation and poise was excellent. Our team really believes she can climb the global rankings and win a lot of tournaments as a proud member of Team Bettinardi.” – Robert J. Bettinardi, President and Founder of Bettinardi Golf
