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 face and grooves are machined to ensure maximum volume and precision of edges. The Tour-S features a specially designed port that is angled into the back cavity to improve feel and enhance perimeter weighting. A thin-soled version in some higher lofts keeps the leading edge close to the ground even when the face is open.
Low-Handicapper:
"My flop shot really puts on the brakes. It just seems to align itself. I like the smaller, intermediate head."
Middle-Handicapper:
"Quite forgiving on mis-hits on longer shots. What I really liked was how well the sole worked on those 20-yard pitches."
High-Handicapper:
"It's an excellent performer out of the sand. I was able to spin every type of shot. It feels like a Grade-A forged club."
Hot:
The beauty of smart engineering is that it's seamless. The effort here makes for a consistent performer with solid feel.
Not:
Only one option at 56 degrees seems insufficient, and all lofts don't come in both finishes.
