Custom-engineered to offer milled putter performance, PING has today launched four tour-validated models in a series of Putting Lab Design (PLD) putters.
The precision-milled putters are now available for pre-order at authorised PING retailers committed to selling premium, custom-fit putters.
The PLD Milled line offers a collection of four tour-validated models, each with a history of winning championships.
These designs are fully machined from forged, 303 stainless steel and represent a combination of standard-setting favourites like the Anser and newer, tour-inspired models like the DS72, the choice of multiple-time winner Viktor Hovland.
Each model requires more than four hours of milling time, precisely shaping every surface and radius to achieve the high quality and premium look expected in a precision-milled putter.
As part of the PLD introduction, PING staff players at this week’s Players Championship will carry a PLD-branded staff bag and wear headwear featuring the PLD logo. The staff bags will be autographed by the player and later donated or auctioned off.
"The PLD Milled is an exciting addition to our putter line," said John K. Solheim.
"We’ve identified a couple of our most popular models from the past and some newer designs that have attracted a lot of attention in the last couple of years.
"We’ve given the new putters a very clean, premium look to emphasise the precision process they undergo before they are ready for play.
"As we collaborate on new designs with our engineers and tour staff through the PLD programme, we’ll add new models to bring golfers the latest in tour-proven performance on the putting green."
