Legacy Partners have remained committed to the AJGA and our mission to support golf's next generation. With decades of support, these storied partnerships provide world-class experiences and opportunities with a lasting impact.
PING, a golf club manufacturer with the goal to help golfers play their best, has been an AJGA supporter since 1990 and began supporting the PING Phoenix Junior in 1991. The PING Invitational, one of the AJGA's top Invitationals held over Columbus Day weekend, began in 2006 at Karsten Creek. The PING Junior Solheim Cup, the all-girls match play biennial event, has received worldwide recognition and many participants are able to say they played for their country as a junior and professional.
PING expanded support to become an AJGA Official Partner in 2002, sponsoring PING College Golf Signing Day and in 2009, became "The Official Bag of the AJGA." In 2010, PING debuted golf bags for all AJGA champions. In 2021, PING became the first AJGA Legacy Partner, honoring more than 30 years of supporting the AJGA and junior golf. See below for a closer look at the history behind the PING Legacy Partnership.
