Leading logistics firm UPS has announced its new #bagsforbirdies campaign that will see it donate junior sets of clubs throughout 2016.


It says the campaign has been designed to support golf’s future talent and will see junior sets of golf clubs donated for every birdie or better that UPS golf ambassadors Lee Westwood or Louis Oosthuizen make during a competitive round the four 2016 major championships.

Ping has revealed it will partner with UPS in this #bagsforbirdies initiative, developing Ping Moxie G junior clubs and other golf gear for the kids, with recipients set to be selected from eight internationals market including North America, UK, Germany, Costa Rica, China, South Africa, Vietnam and Japan.
