Five new models join PING PLD Milled putter series

Five new models – the 2024 PLD Milled Anser, Anser 2D, Oslo 3 and DS72 and Ally Blue 4 – have been added to PING’s Putting Lab Design (PLD) programme.

“We’ve been very pleased with the results and feedback across the entire PLD programme,” said PING CEO & president John K Solheim. “It allows us to bring golfers more of what we do best – design and build the highest-performing putters in the game. A key part of the programme is the PLD Milled series, which offers premium, milled putters inspired by tour players to bring golfers the latest in score-lowering performance on the greens. These five new designs continue that commitment and offer every golfer a model to fit their stroke and eye.”

The new models (RRP £450) combine standard-setting favourites like the Anser and newer, tour-proven models like the DS72 – the choice of 2023 FedEx Cup champion Viktor Hovland. The Anser 2D and Oslo 3 are tour-influenced, high-MOI designs – while the Ally Blue 4 is a new, multi-material mallet that delivers new levels of forgiveness and alignment features.

Four of the new models (Anser, Anser 2D, DS72 and Oslo 3) are fully machined from forged, 303 stainless steel and feature a gun-metal finish.

The deep AMP (Aggressive Milling Pattern) face technology on all the models is precisely milled for tour-preferred sound, feel and speed. More than four hours of milling time are required for every model, precisely shaping every surface and radius to achieve the high quality and premium look.

The Ally Blue 4 is a fully machined, three-piece design differentiated by its square footprint and full length, top alignment aid. The strong arc design consists of an aluminium body, stainless steel soleplate and aluminium hosel to create an extremely high MOI, easy to align mallet.

“Part of our goal with the PLD programme is to offer our most popular models from the past and add new, tour-influenced designs on a regular basis,” added John. “This year’s additions represent an exciting balance of that strategy. As we collaborate on new designs with our engineers and tour staff through the PLD programme, we’ll expand the line to ensure golfers have access to our newest technologies and processes.”
