Almost 3,000 gold plated putters and clubs are stored in Ping's vault. Why?
"...PING backs up every victory with gold, in the form of a gold plated putter to commemorate a win using one of their putters, made to the exact specifications as the winning putter--that's everything: length, lie, grip style and size, sound slot or tungsten inserts--absolutely everything. PING presents one to the player and adds a second to what has to be the coolest putter collection in the world! For those who win one of the four Major victories on the PGA or LPGA, the players are presented with a solid gold replica of their putter."
