PING Golf announced today its new line of PING Scottdale putters, a nod to the company’s headquarters in Arizona’s Valley of the Sun. There’s even a cool cactus motif on the sole of the putters. The name also salutes the old PING Scottsdale Anser putters of yore.
According to PING, the new Scottsdale Series putters feature a new insert developed from extensive player testing. The insert is made of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) with a face “appliqué.”
According to PING, the insert “delivers a soft yet solid feel and crisp sound for assured putting. The combination of TPE and expanded perimeter weighting properties results in improved feel and truer roll.”
The PING Scottsdale putter line features a whopping 14 models, several with fanciful names. They include the Anser 2 (pictured at left), B60, Craz-E Too, Half Pipe, Hohum, Pickemup, Pickemup B, Pickemup L, Tomcat™, Wolverine, Wolverine C, Wolverine H (pictured above), Y Worry and ZB. Phew!
Based on the early photos, it looks like PING might be going out on a visual limb with the Scottsdale putters. You can’t accuse them of playing it safe, that’s for sure.
The cost of the Scottsdale putters is $140 to $180, depending on the model. Look for them in September.
