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.

Ping mills all its grooves using a new process that achieves tighter manufacturing tolerances. The result is a deeper, sharper-edge groove than previous Ping wedges. The multiple sole options in lofts above 52 degrees include a mid-bounce Standard sole, a high-bounce Wide sole for steep swings, and a low-bounce Thin sole for shallow swings.
Low-Handicapper:
"Perfect feel, not too soft or hard. All my shots tended to come out at the same height, making it easy to control the distance."
Middle-Handicapper:
"I had no trouble executing multiple types of shots. The wedge is easy to use."
Hot:
The groove quality and sole variety are welcome improvements to a wedge that exudes reliable simplicity.
Not:
We wish Ping offered more finish choices.
