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.

It has a traditional shape in a 17-4 stainless-steel body, and the CG moves progressively through the lofts (lowest and farthest back in the low lofts). The lower part of the face is wider to help alignment and contact.
Low-Handicapper:
"It has an iron-like feel but with more distance. The ball got up quickly but didn't continue to climb."
Middle-Handicapper:
"It's amazing to me how little you have to work to get the ball to go, and the ball flight has a nice, high trajectory. The turf interaction was so efficient that it goes right through tall grass, and the ball comes out high and hot."
Hot:
Ping positions this club right in the middle of its line in terms of forgiveness, trajectory and workability. In other words, it'll work for anyone.
Not:
Price seems high for its relatively simple construction.
