Ping has added three new models to its popular PLD line, designed wuth input from Bubba Watson and Tyrrell Hatton.  

The new designs join the four existing models in the milled range from last year, which feature fan favourites like the Anser and DS72, as played by Viktor Hovland.  

New to the range are the Anser D and Oslo 4, two high-MOI designs which were developed in collaboration with the aforementioned Watson and Hatton.

The third model, the Anser 2, differs slightly in looks with its matte-black finish but retains all the technology and performance of the satin-finish version introduced last year.  

Ping CEO and president John K. Solheim explained: “After establishing the PLD name several years ago as an extension of the Ping Putting Lab, we officially announced the Putting Lab Design (PLD) program one year ago this week.  

“A key part of the program is the PLD milled series, which offers golfers premium, precision-milled putters inspired by tour players.  

“We’ve been very pleased with the results and feedback across the entire program. It allows us to bring golfers more of what we do best – design and build the highest-performing putters in the game.  

“In the case of the PLD Milled line, we’re continuing to add tour-inspired models to bring golfers the latest in score-lowering performance on the green.”

All seven putter designs in the family are fully machined from forged, 303 stainless steel and feature a deep, aggressive milling pattern, precisely milled for tour-preferred sound, feel and speed.  

More than four hours of milling time are required for every model, precisely shaping every surface and radius to achieve the high quality and premium look expected in a precision-milled putter.  

New putters at a glance 

Anser D  

The Anser D is a take on Ping’s most iconic putter design: the Anser. It is designed for the player who looks for a shape that’s somewhere between a blade and mid mallet, offering more forgiveness. With more mass in the head, it helps stabilise the stroke and delivers more consistency.  

Anser 2  

The Anser 2 differs from the classic Anser with a longer, slimmer profile which is easier on the eye. Like the Anser, it too has heel-toe weighting to provide stability and forgiveness. The matte-black head contrasts against the single white alignment line to make aiming easier.  

Oslo 4  

Pictured above, the Oslo 4 is quipped with an Anser 4-style hosel to make it a good fit for strong-arc stroke types. The alignment line contrasts with the matte-black head to form an appealing address profile and draw the eye forward, giving you confidence when aiming.  

RRP: £399
