Year of Introduction:
17-4 Stainless Steel
Features & Benefits
• 17-4 stainless steel irons with wide, forgiving sole designs.
• The sole shape positions the CG low and back for higher launch angle and helps the sole glide through the turf.
• Custom Tuning Port integrates with the sole to reinforce the thinner face for increased ball speeds and solid feel.
• The hybrids replace the long irons and have a deep head profile and a wide sole to transition with the irons.
• The hybrids CG locations are farther back in the low lofted heads for higher launch, and lower and more forward in the high lofted options to reduce spin.
• Internal heel and toe weighting raises the MOI.
About The Manufacturer
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.
