Molinari signs with Bettinardi

Francesco Molinari is hoping to make Europe’s Ryder Cup team for a third time by partnering with major golf putter designer Robert Bettinardi and Bettinardi Golf to play its new BB56 putter next year.

Molinari said in a statement: “I’m delighted to have signed with Bettinardi and using what I believe to be the best performing and finest looking putters on Tour.

“I’ve tested different Bettinardi models in my quest to win on tour in 2018 and make the Ryder Cup team again, and the BB56 sits perfectly for me. I love the technology involved and how passionate the brand is on creating quality putters.”

Robert Bettinardi, President and CEO of Bettinardi Golf, said he is looking forward to an exciting year with two top players. “Signing Francesco is fantastic news for the Bettinardi brand and we’re thrilled to have him on board. He’s a very popular and successful player on both European and PGA Tours, and we’ve worked closely with him to enhance his performance on the greens,” he said.

“The prospect of having Francesco on Team Europe and Matt Kuchar, who has been a brand ambassador for nearly five years, on Team USA playing Bettinardi putters at the Ryder Cup is something we’re really excited about,” he added.
