ping anser Mgbr with tungsten weights and serial number rare find UK
Alright chaps,

Just received this in the post today, purchased off the bay for £37 inc P+P

33.5inches ping anser manganese bronze with tungsten weights and serial number - emailing it to ping to get some more info!!

What do you guys reckon - a good buy??? image/good.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':good:' />

I live in the UK and very rarely see stuff like this on the bay for sale so i couldn't turn down the opportunity to have this in the collection.

my question is = is it a dalehead shaped head? can anyone shed some light on this putter maybe

possible resale value etc

should I send it to ping in the uk for a refurb? if they do that kinda work?

    That's most likely a Tour putter as evidenced by the "JW" serial number. A friend of mine had one several months ago, and when he contacted Ping to ask about it, they got rather upset that he had it. If I were you, I wouldn't send it back.

    Here's a thread I started on that other putter:;hl=ping+tour

    Nice pickup!

    Definately Tour Issue indicated by the "JW" serial number. I had a lefthanded one that I also picked up on ebay for next to nothing. Ended up selling it when the WRX dept. started making the custom putters (w/ weights) available to the public. I also tried contacting PING regarding the putter. The did not have, or at least would not supply me with any info on the putter. The also were very inquisitive as to where I got it.

    Nice pickup, Nice putter!
