The Ping Putter Story

Ping was started by Norwegian born engineer Karsten Solheim who designed a revolutionary putter in 1959. Called the Ping 1A, it gave the golfing world the idea of perimeter weighting. By moving the weight of the clubhead to the outside of the design, Solheim enlarged the sweetspot on his putter making off-center hits finish closer to the intended target.

He wasn't short of good ideas either, over the next three and a half decades, Solheim designed legendary putter after legendary putter. Most of his putters were wildly successful. Pros loved them and amateurs bought them by the million.

Although it might seem that iron and wood manufacture is Ping's main focus now, this is not the case - Ping putters are still amongst the most used putter brands on professional circuits the world over. We at have come to the conclusion, that Ping's designs are truly masterpieces, and even if the odd putter in more recent years looks a bit funky, the roll and performance you get, even from the lower priced models is absolutely phenomenal.'s reviews of Anser style Putters:
