Ping, Tour Agree To Ban Offending Wedges

Ping and The Tour have come to an agreement to ban the use of the twenty year old square grooved Ping wedges starting March 29. The clubs previously had been exempted thanks to a 1990 settlement in 1990 from when Ping sued the PGA Tour and the US Golf Association.

No doubt neither side wanted to find out what would happen if the case actually went to court.

Phil Mickelson, Hunter Mahan and several others had used the clubs this year, in defiance of a new definition of permitted grooves.
