Hovland's Putter

i know this take is tired, but man Ping is missing out on so many opportunities by not offering high end milled through retail or custom through the website.  I have 3 Zings and a Myday that id love to have modern 'PLD' version of,  especially with that raw finish Hovland has 

But they really are not. It’s such a low percentage of golfers that are looking for that.95% of your golfers won’t pay more than 200 for a putter.

Scotty Cameron has people paying $100 annually just to be a part of a club.. that's how big their following is.  sure it would never be for the masses, but there are plenty of Ping loyalists out there, and many have a Scotty in their bag.  Aren't the margins on a milled putter high?  I think there's a way to make it equitable.

They already offer the option. You have to fly to Phoenix get a fitting and they will make you anything you want. Run you around 1500.00 much less than a tour Cameron

The program is very much alive and running. I got mine two months ago. 
 

1. you don’t have to go to Phoenix to get one (I did a Zoom call with the tour guys);

2. They will mail you a putting cradle, you do a few sessions with their app and share the reports with them so they can analyze the data and they will recommend something based on that and your preferences. They were 100% spot on with their recommendation for me and I could not be happier. 
3. Options are limited. Certain heads and necks take longer. They can’t do every finish with every head/neck combination. 

4. The price is not $1500. You do need to buy it through a PING account. 
 

Here is the extent of the program right now. 
 

Model offerings:

  • Anser, Anser 2
  • Prime Tyne – Double bend (Straight or Slight arc), Anser 4 hosel, Anser hosel
  • Kushin - Double bend (Straight or Slight arc), Anser 4 hosel, Anser hosel
  • DS 72 (Victor Hovland’s putter) - Double bend (Straight or Slight arc)

 

Finishes: 

Carbon steel – Stealth or Patina

Stainless – Matte Raw

 

Grooves: 

Smooth, shallow grooves, deep grooves (TR), Pebax insert

 

Sightlines: 

Line, Lines, Dot, Dots

 

Weight: 

Weight can be custom to player’s cadence by adding tungsten (heavier only)

 

If it’s not 1500 then what is it?

    • APPLY NOW: L.A.B. Golf MEZZ.1 Putter (Early Access) Member Testing! 10 Testers Needed!
      L.A.B. Golf is choosing ten GolfWRX members to receive their MEZZ.1 putter early and put their brand new product to the test before reporting back to the community about what they see. The selected testers will be one of the first to experience the MEZZ.1 from L.A.B. GOLF, their newest Lie Angle Balanced design, ahead of it's January 2022 launch!
       
      About The L.A.B. Golf Mezz.1 Putter
      MEZZ.1 is our new mid-mallet putter that’s fully CNC machined from a billet of 6061 aircraft aluminum (body) and 303 stainless steel (midsection) to create our best-feeling — and we think best looking — putter to date. It includes 10 weights (eight on the bottom, two on the sides) that allow us to individually build each putter to a golfer’s exact specifications.
       
      How To Apply
      In a post below, answer the following questions.
       
      1. City, State?
      2. Handicap?
      3. What is your current putter?
      4. Have you ever used a L.A.B. Golf putter?
      5. Why do you want to review the MEAZZ.1 putter?
      6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos?
       
      That's it! @labgolf and GolfWRX will choose the testers in about 2 weeks! This testing event is for good-standing members in the USA only!
