Going to Ping for PLD fitting

I didn’t even know this was a thing.  What options/models are open to you when you do this?  I’m definitely curious how this works and what putters you can get, as I thought ping was very stingy with the pld offerings getting outside of staff players hands.

 

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)

 

I know the hosels on the tyne are aluminum and you can get black only in those necks if you want a carbon head.

Shocked they don't offer the anser wide, that'd be interesting. Great info, good luck.

The Anser and Anser 2 are they offered with different necks? Like basically an Anser 4? What about the Anser 2D?

I’ll find out next week lol

 

Figured that's easier than me emailing.

 

For me a PLD Anser 4 or 4D would be my grail putter from Ping.

Following this with interest - I have a beautiful PLD Anser in carbon steel - but I didn't go through the fitting (got it as-new in my spec).  I am tempted to get a PLD made, and have to admit I am intrigued by the Kushin and DS72 options.

That's awesome!!! Good luck I'm sure the putter will be amazing! I emailed in last week to do the virtual version of the fit and order so this will be cool to follow in the meantime.

If they did a PLD Anser double wide body center shaft, I’d be there like yesterday.  I also wouldn’t mind living the rest of my life with 1 test**cle and be called 1ball, if they took test**cle’s for payment.  

 

They'd call you Lance.

Jeff is an awesome guy, he made us feel very comfortable and really knows his stuff. The putting lab is very cool and the marble slab you putt on is something to see. 
 

If my memory is correct I recall them

saying the slab itself without the grass mat on top is 160+ on the stimpmetre.

 

Hopefully you will get to go into the gold putter vault too, it’s in the building next to the putter lab. It used to be in the same building but it ended up being too small. That room is now used for ENSO.

Isn’t the PLD fitting around a grand plus your putter purchase?  Or am I thinking of something else?  
 

Looking forward to hearing your take on it, I’m sure it’ll be an experience you’ll never forget.

I am more than a little excited about this topic. I would be curious if they offered a long neck anser 2 option. I seem to remember one being build for Aaron Baddeley some time ago. Definitely following this thread. Enjoy your time in God's country!

Do you have to be there for the fitting or fitting can be done remotely?

 

Pretty sure you gotta be there.... IF you're gonna drop a g, you may as well get the appropriate services associated with the cost.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
