What it does: PLD stands for Putting Lab Design, which perhaps makes you think of some sort of odd transmogrification of golfer and metal. As it turns out, that’s what happened here. These classic Anser blades, including the longer-hosel Anser D inspired by Bubba Watson, are a precise melding of what tour players want, the insights of Ping engineers and a milling process that takes four hours per head. In addition to that is the process in Ping’s putting lab in which multiple high-speed cameras analyse thousands of putts to better understand how small changes lead to big success.
Why we like it: The precision of these fully milled models extends to a deep aggressive mill in the face. It’s designed to create the consistent ball speed and softer feel preferred by its tour players.
SPECS 3 models; head weight 350, 365 grams; length custom
“Classy with not much going on other than perfect looks everywhere. Beautiful weight. Consistent end-over-end roll all day.”
