Well looks like the Ping R&D Department in Phoenix, Arizona is at it again. The PGA Show in Orlando must have been buzzing with the new Ping Ketsch Putter. Ping continues to help create and develop products for the green that will assist the golfer in touch, feel and building confidence.
When it all comes down to it, the flat blade is one of the most important if not the most important club in the bag. I have said it before and I will say it again, putting is around 40% of all the shots you take on any given round, so it makes perfect sense to find a putter that will knock the balls in the hole.
Choosing a putter can be daunting, but when you find the one that is forgiving and gives you the confidence you need to drop those knee knockers in…well that is priceless.
Let’s take a look at a putter that Ping is launching to the marketplace this Spring.
Ping is staying with their innovative True Roll Technology (TR) in which the variable-depth grooves are created to equalize ball speed across the entire face of the flat stick.
What is True Roll Technology? The variable-depth grooves are designed with the deepest in the center of the face and get gradually shallower toward the edges. This, Ping says, helps to make the ball roll the same distance regardless of where on the face the putt is struck.
In addition, the precision-milled Ketsch offers extreme forgiveness and accurate alignment and its 17-4 stainless steel sole weight creats a high MOI. Three white, contrasting sightlines extend from the leading edge of the matte-black crown to make is easy on the eyes to aim.
The Ketsch comes is variable length range with adjustable shaft: 31-38 inches with a head weight at 355g and lie angle range of +(-) 2 degrees.
While we have not had the Ping Ketsch arrive at our testing center as of yet, I would have to suggest that this putter is for the player looking to improve his/her aim with very appealing set up lines and the a solid sole place to assist in your address position.
I also feel that is putter would be a great choice for the golfer having difficulty with speed and distance control. Ketsch seems to be offering forgiveness on the greens for mishits.
Putting without doubt is so important to ones scoring. However, a player just can’t go out and grad a putter that ‘looks’ good on the rack. We all need to find that putter that we feel is an extension of ourselves and gives us the utmost confidence when we stand up to the putt. Ketsch will be arriving at our testing center soon, but from the looks of it and research, I think this putter is going to fit well in the bag of many golfers looking to lower their PPR (putts per round).
As soon as we get our hands on the Ping Kestch, we will do a hands on review and publish our thoughts. So stay here and get excited for the new Ping Ketsch Putter.
