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 multiple-piece 8620 steel forging includes tungsten in the toe to keep the center of gravity (CG) in the proper position. A reinforced back cavity thickens the face to minimize fluctuation and enhance control.
Low-Handicapper:
"I love the weight. It glided through the turf with no stopping the clubhead." ... "On pitch shots, the ball hit that little window you look for every single time."
Middle-Handicapper:
"Very easy to control around the green; for a 56-degree wedge, you can flop this to your heart's desire."
Hot:
Few try to combine forging with multiple materials in a wedge. Ping sets the standard here, with exceptional feel.
Not:
$170, only six options and no unique grooves story -- at least one of those statements reads like a misprint.
