Pernilla Lindberg started off hot at the ANA Inspiration with rounds of 65-67, but she needed extra holes—and an extra day—to capture her first major championship, winning in a playoff over Jennifer Song and Inbee Park, the latter taking her eight extra holes before succumbing to a 30-foot birdie bomb that she couldn’t match from 15 feet.
Lindberg’s putter is Ping’s Cadence TR Rustler, a mallet with a fair amount of weight removed from the head that allows for a low and back center of gravity and high moment of inertia to assist on off-center strikes.
Also intriguing is Lindberg’s driver, Ping’s GLe. Almost all LPGA players use drivers designed for men, but the GLe is Ping’s women’s model with a headweight that is 13 grams lighter than the company’s G400 driver (193 grams as opposed to 206 grams).
