Bubba Watson won his second career PGA Tour tournament yesterday with the same putter that he used to win his first—the PING Redwood Anser.
Indeed, Watson sank a crucial 12-foot birdie to edge Phil Mickelson at Torrey Pines, just as he make a four footer to win a playoff at last year’s Travelers Championship. Both victories came with the same Redwood Anser in hand. You may recall that Louis Oosthuizen also wielded a PING Redwood Anser putter en route to winning last year’s British Open.
The putter belongs to PING’s Redwood Series ($250), which was launched four years ago as the company’s first line of all-milled putters. The Anser is PING’s most enduring model, and is the most-copied design in the putter industry.
If you want a PING Anser putter with a proven track record on the professional tours but can’t afford the Redwood, don’t worry—you can always try the $89 PING Karsten Series Anser that Martin Kaymer has wielded while racking up several recent victories and ascending the global ranks as one of golf’s hottest stars.
