SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — K.J. Choi and Kenny Perry have recently been using new putters that are part of Ping's latest putter line, the Scottsdale series.
There are 14 different models in the new line, and first thing golfers will notice is the finish, which is much darker than previous Ping putters. That should help the maroon and white alignment aids and sightlines stand out more.
But Ping hopes it's the white insert found in face of all Scottsdale putters that will make them stand out.
Matt Rollins, a Ping PGA Tour rep, said, "We feel this is the best-feeling insert we've had in a putter in a while." He says the polymer insert is softer than the insert used in the i-Series putters, so Ping hopes that it will match well with today's mutli-layer golf balls.
The line features such Ping standards as the Anser and the B60, but there are some new headshapes too, including the blade-style TomCat (above) and the extreme perimeter-weighted Y Worry (below).
Look for the new Scottsdale series of putters to arrive in pro shops this fall with a price of about $140 to $180, depending on the model.See-Try-Buy: Learn more about Ping clubs, and schedule your fitting with GolfTEC. Related: Follow David Dusek on Twitter | Facebook
