Still have some hope we'll be able to buy one of these eventually.

I am a Ping nut, and seeing PLDs all over the tour which are far more interesting than the retail lines just makes me sad.   I've said it before, but there's no way Karsten Solheim would eve

I purchased the new PLD without handling one and honestly I haven’t rolled it at all yet.  But my SC Phantom 5.5 is about to be up for sale on the BST.  SC seems to make it selling $400 putters, as well as Bettinardi, Evnroll, etc.  I would think a for retail PLD line would be a very doable if not very profitable venture for Ping. People are tossing out $500 for drivers at an alarming rate and a putter is used more often than any driver.  Also the R&D on a putter can’t be what the R&D on a driver is. I own 1 Driver and multiple putters.  Show us some love Ping and give us a couple retail PLD offerings.

Ping’s retail putters have mostly looked like junk to me for quite a few years.
 

Most of the PLD putters I see look so straight forward and nice. Why the retail lines don’t look like this feels like a miss. The wide body Anser and Anser 2 are awesome looking. 

Its the same for all the putter manufactures.  All the Tour putters look awesome, raw carbon, wide body, simple and sleek yet their OTR gear is grabage. Just junk and most times completely different, not necessary and certainly not helpful crap.

This is why small boutiques like Mannkrafted, Byron and others will stick around. Which I am fine with. OEM’s dumb - small putter shops +1

For $1250 USD, you can get you're own PLD custom putter made at PING HQ. I was talking to one of the master fitters and you can get a fitting with them over Zoom or at PING HQ . Then they can build you a custom putter to pretty much whatever spec you want. 

 

This is a steal of a deal when you compared it to the $3K price of a basic Circle T putter that isn't even custom made for you.

$1250 for a Ping putter is not a steal 😂

It's a custom built one off putter that you, a PING master fitter and a design engineer create from a single billet. A true tour experience. You get to select head shapes, hosel styles, offets, materials, head Weight, small design detail, different types of face milling, inserts...the list goes on. 

 

What would you suggest they ask for such a service?

Can I get a line on the top line of an anser rather than the cavity? If so I’m there.

Like a sight line? Yes, you can literally customize them how you want. It's the same process they go through with their tour players. 

Great thank you for posting this. I have an old magnesium bronze anser that was naked and they put a site line on top line for me.  I love it but it’s super light. I’m calling them tomorrow!

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
