Bettinardi Golf signs two top-ranked PGA Mackenzie Tour players, adding to their star-studded and hall of fame lineup of Tour Ambassadors, including Sam Fidone (25), and George Cunningham (23), both winners in 2018 on the Mackenzie Tour.
Sam Fidone, putting with a left-handed BBZero Soft Carbon Tour Dept. putter, won his first MacKenzie Tour event at the Bayview Place DCBank Open, and in August won the APT Southside Bank Open at -19, tying the Tournament low record, while his father carried his bag.
“Sam has been using a Bettinardi putter since he turned professional in 2015, and he’s been a rock-solid player and it’s not surprising to see him grow into a complete golfer, winning on Sundays on Tour. He’s been putting great and winning Tournaments. We’re proud to make it official and have him on Team Bettinard- Sam Bettinardi, VP of Bettinardi Golf
George Cunningham, once the nation’s top recruits coming out of High School, has quickly seen success on Tour, winning in only the third tournament of the year at the GolfBC Championship and has gone on to have 5 top 10 finishes this year putting with his Tour Dept. DASS (Double Aged Stainless Steel) BB8 Tri-Plane putter.
“George is an outstanding young player who has the all-around game to take him to the PGA Tour, no questions asked. His putting has been superb this year since switching to a Bettinardi when he turned pro. My father and I are excited to have another great young talent part of Team Bettinardi” - Sam Bettinardi, VP of Bettinardi Golf
Bettinardi Golf has won 10 professional tour events this year, including most notably the 147th Open Championship with Francesco Molinari going bogey-free all weekend at Carnoustie using their DASS BBZero. The Tour Department continues to expand and attract new players to their bag.
