The iconic Anser model by PING Golf is the most popular and most copied putter in the modern era, and “Anser-style” putters by numerous brands still enjoy a widespread presence on the professional circuits.
PING Putters on A Roll
But for the past two weeks, it’s been PING-branded Anser putters atop the leaderboards on the PGA Tour.
Indeed, a week after Bubba Watson wielded a PING Redwood Anser putter to win at Torrey Pines, Mark Wilson used a PING Karsten Anser en route to winning the Phoenix Open. Martin Kaymer has also been red-hot of late with a PING Karsten Anser 2 in his bag.
The Karsten Anser belongs to PING’s affordable Karsten Series line of putters, which cost just $89. In our early review of the Karsten Anser more than two years ago, we raved about its quality-to-price ratio. Apparently, we weren’t alone in our assessment.
Now, with Kaymer and Wilson making noise with these sub-$100 putters, and with Watson rocking the Redwood Anser, PING is on a serious roll in 2011.
