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
Gold Medal
Blade Putters
Ping wanted to come up with an insert that sounded soft yet produced ball speeds as fast as steel. The result is a two-piece, thermoplastic-elastomer insert featured in this series of cast 17-4 stainless-steel heads. The Anser 2, B60 and Tomcat models have plumber's-neck hosels and the ZB has a flare tip
Low-Handicapper:
"Soft corners. A lot of attention to detail."…"The stepped flange is a nice thing to have in reserve for alignment, but your eye can forget about it if it wants to."
Middle-Handicapper:
"Doesn't have that rubbery feel that some other inserts have."…"You hear the same sound even if you mis-hit it."
Hot:
No company on our Hot List makes more of an effort to ensure that every retailer who distributes its clubs knows how to fit properly. Four head-style options are nice, but what sweetens this deal are the choices of shaft length, lie angle, loft and grip to best fit your stroke.
Not:
Technologically, the insert is a step backward form last year's iN Series offering.
