Q & A
PING studies show a substantial increase in ball-speed consistency measured at nine points on the face with their new Variable-Depth-Groove Insert. Grooves are deepest in the middle and get gradually shallower to the perimeter of the insert. This counteracts normal loss in energy or ball speed to ensure more-consistent ball velocity across the putter face, even if the ball is struck off-center toward the heel or toe.
PING putters are "Fit For Stroke"
Results from hundreds of player and robot tests at PING offer overwhelming scientific support for the effectiveness of fitting for stroke. In recent years more diagnostic tools and testing equipment have become available, and the results prove that a golfer's consistency improves when their putter balance matches their stroke type. Golfers swing the putter on one of three paths; straight, slight arc or strong arc.
