Ewing Partners with Three PGA TOUR Golfers

Aaron Baddeley, Peter Malnati and Steven Alker to represent the brand and help raise awareness on the importance of course maintenance.

JUNE 28, 2023, PHOENIX—Ewing Outdoor Supply, the largest family-owned wholesale landscape products distributor in the U.S., today announced its partnership with PGA TOUR golfers Aaron Baddeley and Peter Malnati and PGA TOUR Champions golfer Steven Alker.

“Golf is an integral part of Ewing’s 100-year history. Our founder, King W. Ewing, was a former golf pro who not only loved the game, he loved helping make it better by working with golf course managers to improve playing conditions,” Ewing President and CEO Douglas W. York said. “We’re excited to take Ewing’s participation in the game to the next level by welcoming Aaron, Peter and Steven to the Ewing family. Together, we’ll raise awareness of how the behind-the-scenes work on golf courses make a difference for players.”

From coast to coast, Ewing provides golf courses with the tools and materials needed for course renovations and maintenance. From bunkers to irrigation to agronomics and more, Ewing understands the partnership between a supplier and a superintendent is paramount for creating the best conditions for the game of golf. Ewing has a dedicated golf sales team supporting its golf customers, as well as Rain Bird Golf distribution exclusivity in select markets, including Arizona, western Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Maryland, southern Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.

Alker, who made his PGA Champions debut in May, is ranked No. 3 on the tour. The 2022 Charles Schwab Cup champion has played professionally for 28 years. He has six Champions tour wins and 16 professional worldwide wins. In 2022, he made 92% of PGA TOUR Champions cuts. A native of New Zealand, he now calls Arizona home.

“Having played many courses and knowing Ewing has helped many of them achieve optimal conditions, I couldn’t be more excited to be part of the team,” Alker said. “I look forward to working with Ewing and sharing with their customers the benefits of what makes Ewing Outdoor Supply the best in the business, not to mention trying to repeat the Schwab Cup win and having them along for the ride.”

Known as Badds, or Mr. Nice Guy, Baddeley shares the Ewing belief in family and the importance of making time with them. The Luther College alum and father of six has been playing professionally for 23 years. He has eight professional wins and made 75% of cuts during the 2022-2023 season. A New Hampshire native raised in Australia, he also calls Arizona home.

“I am thrilled to be partnering with Ewing! Doug and his team are truly first class,” Baddeley said. “Ewing is the leader in the irrigation & outdoor products, so to be associated with and to be the first golfer to represent Ewing, is very exciting for me!”

Malnati is a nine-year veteran of the PGA TOUR and a Player Director on the 2023 PGA Player Advisory Council. His belief that great performance comes from keeping things simple and on target pairs well with Ewing’s company philosophy. The University of Missouri alum has one PGA TOUR victory and made 75% of cuts during the 2022-2023 season. An Indiana native, he lives in Tennessee.

“I am a proud ambassador on the Ewing Outdoor Supply team,” Malnati said. “With their customers who supervise the conditions of amazing golf courses all over the country, there really isn’t a company that embodies what we do on a weekly basis out here on tour more than Ewing. They help the people who help make the magic happen, and that is something to be celebrated.”
