Tinley Park, IL: Bettinardi Golf announced the signing of LPGA Tour rising star Yu Liu, to become their first ever LPGA player to join their Tour Staff. Liu will play her Studio Stock 28 putter with Tour Preferred F.I.T. Face Milling.
Yu Liu, who is currently inside the top 50 in the Rolex Rankings and the number 2 ranked player from China, joins China’s number one male player Haotong Li on the rapidly growing tour staff for Bettinardi Golf. Liu is quickly becoming a household name on the LPGA Tour after her impressive T2 finish at the Bank of Hope Founder Cup in March, and rapid rise in her 2nd year on the LPGA Tour. After switching to her Bettinardi putter at the Marathon Classic in July of 2018, she has seen great success including multiple top 10 finishes and missing only 2 cuts in 21 starts. Liu credits much of her new confidence in her putting to the feel of the F.I.T. Face on her SS28.
“I am joining the Bettinardi Tour Staff because I have gained so much confidence since switching to their putter,” said Liu. “The putter itself has amazing feel, great touch and quality. I know Bettinardi can craft anything I ask for in the future, and this gives me great enthusiasm for joining their team.” - Yu Liu
In just two years on the LPGA Tour, Liu has earned nearly $700,000 and is currently ranked 14th on the 2019 Race to CME Globe.
“We’re extremely proud to add our first ever LPGA staffer to Team Bettinardi”, said Robert J. Bettinardi, President and Founder of Bettinardi Golf. Yu Liu is a wonderful young talent, and a player we believe can climb the global rankings and win the money list on the LPGA very soon. Her performance at the Bank of Hope was very exciting to watch and she just has a wonderful poise to match her great talent.”
