• Elongated head design helps position the center of gravity for higher launching, longer carry drives
• Ultra-thin Crown allows weight to be re-distributed to an external weight pad to optimize center of gravity and create a high moment of inertia
• Promotes natural clubhead rotation by concentrating approximately 10% of the head mass towards the heel
• Larger surface area is highly forgiving on off-center hits and generates faster ball speeds for added distance
• Straight Flight Technology provides substantial heel weighting to help square the face for exceptionally straight drives tee shot after tee shot
Engineer and inventor Karsten Solheim got his start as an engineer working for GE in Ithaca, New York. His passion for the game set him on a journey to create a better putter. At the time he thought he was simply building it for his own personal use, but in 1959, Karsten’s ongoing garage experiments yielded an innovative putter he called 1A design. This putter had very distinctive design qualities, among them, a unique tone at impact, a sound that would echo throughout the game for generations to come…“Ping.” The Anser putter began a long and proud history of truly innovative equipment design throughout Ping’s entire product line (ultimately resulting in over 400 patents) that has set Ping at the top of the list of golf design and manufacturing companies. The company is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona. Karsten Solheim has passed away and his son John has taken the helm.

2011 Hot List
Silver Medal
An external weight pad near the heel accounts for about 10 percent of the clubhead's weight and is designed to keep players from leaving the face open at impact. The K15 features the largest face of any Ping driver. Recessed sections on the rear crown allowed engineers to save weight for a lower CG.
Low-Handicapper:
"Even though the crown is elongated, it sits very square. I can feel the ball fast off the face."
Middle-Handicapper:
"This added piece in the back is distracting. I wish they could have hidden it more. However, the distance was excellent. The ball just flew off the face."
High-Handicapper:
"Massive head shape, but that makes it easy to hit."
Hot:
Here's to innovating in a way that offers genuine benefit for struggling golfers without forcing them to use a club that makes them feel like an invalid.
Not:
The massive address-position visual borders on a training-wheels sort of look.
