Golf Putter by Ping Nome

Ping has been spending a huge amount of time researching putters, putter shapes, and ways in which to help golfers make better strokes. Brad Schweigert, the company’s Director of Engineering, says, “One common theme that arose through all our research was that people wanted something simpler in shape and something with a long sight line extending up to the leading edge of the putter to help them line up.”

The result of all this hard work is the Ping Nome Putter.

The Ping Nome Putter is quite possibly the best-looking mallet the company has ever produced. It features a black alignment bar contrasted with a white sightline running across the top, giving the golfer a good sight of his golf ball. “It is designed to be extremely forgiving, thanks to lightweight, high-grade aluminum frame boasting tungsten sole weighting that optimizes the Center of Gravity position and elevates the Moment of Inertia,” Schweigert explained.

The new equipment was instantly noticed in the golf world when Hunter Mahan used the club and won the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, earlier in the PGA Tour season. Mahan recalls using the Ping Nome Putter: “It felt great immediately, and it gave me a lot of confidence, so I could just trust my aim and stroke the ball freely. Long putts, big-breaking putts, I felt like I could make just about any putt I looked at.”

The club is available in three different shaft bends and comes in several versions, including a standard 355-gram version and a belly version with USGA-approved adjustable shaft length, weighing 405 grams. The long version is set to be released this summer.
