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.

These satin-finish putters are cast from 17-4 stainless steel and feature and elastomer tuning port in the cavity behind the face to soften the feel. A single white sightline adorns the flange of all five models, which can be custom-fit to length, lie, loft and grip size.
"Effective simplicity."…"This putter takes away the focus from itself and lets you concentrate on what you're trying to do."
"The test of a good putter is if it feels the same on short and long putts. This one does."
"Initially I thought the sound was a bit too high and hollow at impact, but eventually I found it helped give me more feedback."
Five models of varying hosels and head shapes make this series a veritable dessert cart-you're bound to see at least one thing you like. As its five stars in Demand prove, sometimes the tastiest desserts are found not at the fancy restaurant, but at the convenience store.
