Awhile ago I picked up this for cheap. What the heck is this?
Is this a Ping promotional model?
From a corporate event?
Some muffin-headed corporate-execuitives' idea of job loyalty?
An ultra-wierd asian knock-off? - I kinda doubt this particular one based on the way the metal responds to steel-wool and moisture. (I own about 40 Ping putters)

    I've seen those at used club shops around town. I think UPS must have decided to give out Ping putters as corporate prizes one year, or else paid Ping for some really blatant product placement.

    Thanks! I wonder how many were produced? Is this something Ping does for other companies?

    I've seen similar putters before. Not sure if Ping made them or if UPS hired a 3rd party engraver.

    For some reason I remember Ping doing custom engraving like this at some point..🤔
    Could be wrong but I was a club pro for close to 20 years and I vaguely remember info on these type of corporate or private offerings.
    That PAL is in nice shape though. That was a great putter. Nice find! Would love to see your whole collection

    That is awesome!!! Wow, that’s a cool collection. I feel like I went down memory lane looking at those. I used a whole bunch of those models in the late 80’s through the 90’s. Almost every putter I used through that 10-14 years was a ping. Very cool. Thanks for sharing. B61 B62 were some of my favorites. I still swear nothing rolls it much better than those O and A blades

    My biggest shame is a set of samurai swords that for some ungodly reason sounded like a good idea at 2am.
