PHOENIX (AP) — Masters champion Bubba Watson and golf equipment maker Ping presented $250,000 to the Phoenix Children's Hospital on Thursday for use in the construction of Arizona's first pediatric gait lab.

The money was raised as part of the "Bubba & Friends Drive to a Million" effort in partnership with Ping's "Bubba Long in Pink. Driven by Ping" campaign. To help raise funds for Phoenix-area charities, Ping has donated $50 for each of the 5,000 limited-edition, pink drivers sold.

The Bubba Watson and Ping Golf Gait Lab will serve pediatric patients with neuromuscular diseases and disabilities.

Watson will play in the Phoenix Open on Jan. 31-Feb. 3 at TPC Scottsdale.
