• Soft, durable stainless steel heads
• A large internal toe pad expands the perimeter weighting to make it a forgiving hybrid
• Iron-style face and hosel design positions the Center of Gravity closer to the face to increase launch angle and reduce spin
• Engineered as a high-launching, forgiving alternative to long and mid-irons
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.

2011 Hot List
Silver Medal
The G15 is a low-spinning, high-launching hybrid designed to resemble an iron at address (if you ignore that protruding crown behind the toe). The club has ample offset and a large internal weight pad along the toe portion of the rear sole for added forgiveness. Custom-fitting options include adjustment of lie, shaft length, grip size/type and swingweight.
Low-Handicapper:
"As easy to align as an iron. Travels up high in the air and then comes down soft."…"Fat and thin shots both go a considerable distance."
High-Handicapper:
"Kind of looks like Fred Flintstone's toe, but it'll work well for a guy who's struggling to keep it straight."…"Ugly can be beautiful: It's so consistent my last five swings were redundant."
Hot:
A powerfully smart design that seems to swing like an iron and fly like a fairway wood.
Not:
Even our most tolerant testers find the G15s deep-face, bulbous look tough to take.
