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 Gorge grooves on the cast 17-4 stainless-steel heads are milled to get closer to the USGA limits on volume and edge sharpness. The cavity is designed to create perimeter weighting and room for a weight port to improve feel and maintain swingweight consistency. The three sole grinds offer low, medium and high bounce angles.
Low-Handicapper:
"Good head shape, perfect size and the white paintfill in the bottom groove is good for aiming. The heel-toe ratio is perfect."
Middle-Handicapper:
"In the sand, you could get spin on it or chunk and run it. It's versatile."
Hot:
Typical of Ping: a clean, efficient design from groove to sole. The sole options are distinct and easy to understand.
Not:
No breakthrough work being done in surface roughness.
