Ping 2021

Hot List Gold 2022

Our Review:

WHAT IT DOES: Using a two-layer face insert, Ping brings a soft, responsive feel to a variety of multimaterial designs and shapes within this line to increase stability and improve long and short putts.

WHY WE LIKE IT: Ping knows a mallet-user comes to this side of the putter spectrum for forgiveness, but it appreciates the need for feel, too. Each model in the series is built using top-level materials, like aerospace-grade aluminum. Combining them, especially with the use of dense tungsten, enhances how those off-center hits perform. The Harwood model leads the way in stability with 93 grams of tungsten in all four corners of the head. The dual-durometer face insert is soft in front for touch on short putts and firm in back for extra oomph on longer rolls. Shallow grooves provide a consistent feel.

Price: $280-$400

Player Comments
Low-Handicapper

"Nice and simple alignment aid. Face is soft and responsive."

Mid-Handicapper

“I like how pure the roll is. It gets rolling immediately so that you’re focusing on alignment instead of getting it to the hole.”

High-Handicapper

I love the simplicity of the white line, good target for the ball. Such a balanced club. My takeaway and through the ball I feel the face is going to be perfectly square. Soft, but controlled roll.
