Putt for dough – PING introduces 2021 putter models
PING has introduced its 2021 putter series, which focuses on maximizing MOI through multi-material designs. Available in 11 models, the putters have an MSRP of £250-£375 and are available to pre-order now.
“We’ve engineered a lot of score-lowering technology into the 2021 putter line through extensive research and tour player feedback,” said John K. Solheim, PING president. “All of the models are developed with higher MOI through strategic use of various materials, including tungsten, steel and aluminum, to provide the forgiveness and accuracy golfers expect from a PING putter. The dual-durometer insert features uniform, shallow grooves to give golfers a soft, responsive feel for more consistent distance control with the precise touch they need to hole more putts. We’ve also advanced the visual cues depending on the model to help make alignment easier and more natural when addressing a putt.”
“Eleven options ensure a putter to fit every golfer’s eye and stroke type,” he added. “The line-up features new designs created through our Tour-focused PLD (Putting Lab Design) program, including versions inspired by PING professionals Viktor Hovland (DS 72) and Cameron Champ (Tyne 4). From blades to mallets and for straight, slight arc and strong-arc stroke types, it’s a complete line engineered to lower scores and increase enjoyment.”
The soft, responsive face in every model is the result of an innovative dual-durometer PEBAX insert material and uniform, shallow grooves. The softer front layer of the insert ensures the precision necessary for shorter, delicate must-makes. The firmer back layer offers the solid feedback and distance control required for holing longer-range putts and improving overall consistency.
A dark, stealth PVD finish on the heads and a black chrome shaft create a sleek and attractive look from head to grip. All models come standard with a fixed-length shaft that can be custom built from 32” – 38” in ¼” increments. PING’s patented adjustable shaft, which adjusts from 32” – 36”, is available as a custom upgrade, while three PING grip designs allow golfers to dial in their optimal fit and feel.
