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 CNC-milled face features a variable-depth groove pattern designed to improve off-center hits. An elastomer back-cavity insert redistributes mass behind the impact area to improve MOI, as well as sound and feel.
Low-Handicapper:
"This is an exciting return to their roots. It feels soft like a comforter. I'm getting one consistent roll after another, and there are no surprises."
Middle-Handicapper:
"This is the answer. It's the best-feeling putter I've hit so far. I couldn't miss a putt, and I love the classic color." . . . "This B60 makes me wonder why I ever took it out of my bag."
