The winningest model in golf history, the original Anser was handcrafted by PING founder Karsten Solheim back in 1966. Now, 50 years later, his enduring design advances putter technology with the TR 1966 Anser and Anser 2. During development, PING engineers relied on 3D scans of the original Anser and Anser 2 to analyze the subtle contours and radius details that Karsten personally shaped into the designs using his mill and hand files.
The new putters get their name from True-Roll (TR) face technology, which provides unmatched ball-speed consistency across the precision-milled face, the key to holing more putts and reducing three-putts. PING studies show an increase in ball-speed consistency of nearly 50% when measured at nine points across the center, heel and toe.
Like the original, the Anser appeals to golfers who prefer no alignment line, more rounded heel and toe contours, and a slightly thicker top line. It offers a manganese bronze PVD finish. A single white alignment line makes aiming the Anser 2 head easy. Its heel and toe contours are less rounded than those of the Anser and its top rail is narrower. It has a stainless steel blast finish.
Both putters weigh 340 grams, fit a slight arc stroke type, offer a standard-length 35-inch stepped shaft, and lie angle is adjustable plus/minus 4 degrees.
