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.

The stabilizing bars on this forged, carbon-steel head angle out wider and are thinner in the long irons to help lower the CG to launch the ball higher. The bars become more vertical and thicker as you move to the short irons, promoting a more penetrating ball flight.
Low-Handicapper:
"The distance was very consistent. With your irons, it's good to be able to rely on that."
Middle-Handicapper:
"You can tell immediately where you hit it on the face. That's nice."
Hot:
Ping follows its first forged iron with another quality offering. The satin chrome finish is pleasing to the eye, and the feel makes you eager to hit your next shot. Those wanting graphite shafts can get them at no extra cost.
Not:
When the price is the equivalent of a mortgage payment, they should kick in the graphite shafts.
