Best Ping Putters
Ping is an iconic brand in golf, and with iconic designs like the Anser, has been making some of the best putters in the world for a very long time.
In terms of the current range though, Ping has three ranges on offer – the Heppler, the Sigma and the somewhat vaguely named 2021 range.
The newest 2021 range come all have new, soft inserts in the face that allow for excellent feel and responsiveness on the greens.
The Sigma range have an insert and softer feel while the Hepplers have a machined face and it will come off a bit firmer and faster. And there are a raft of options so there will be a putter here for you, whatever your stroke, taste and type of greens you tend to play on.
Both are adjustable in length (and it’s so easy to do) which is great for when you pick one up in the pro shop and you would be amazed how going down an inch could transform how you view a putter – Ping say that eight out of 10 players are using the wrong-length putter. Additionally there are four possible grip sizes plus the armlock variant .
So bearing all of this in mind, let’s take a look at the best Ping putters right now.
Alternatively if Ping is not for you, then we have also created guides on other brands, such as the best Scotty Cameron putters, the best TaylorMade putters, and even the best Odyssey putters currently on sale.
Best Ping Putters
Ping 2021 Anser 4 Putter
+ Premium look matches the performance
– Soft feel doesn’t work as well with soft golf balls
Ping’s most recent putter range are literally just called the 2021 putters, so bear that in mind with the other 2021 putters in the list.
Despite the somewhat unimaginative name of this range of Ping putters, they deliver on the course. There are 12 models in the range and the Anser 4 is a clear stand out for those who have a strongly arced putting stroke and prefer the use of a blade shape.
Despite the relatively small size at address, there is a solid white line through the back of the head which is great for a sightline and the short slant hosel really suited our eye.
It also feels incredibly soft off the face but at the same time maintains a good speed on all lengths of putts – an ideal combination for someone who likes a soft feel directly off the face.
It is a shame Ping have removed the adjustable element that was available in its Heppler range, but the Anser 4 is a pretty complete package to headline the 2021 range.
Ping 2021 Fetch Putter
+ New, clean sightline is great for lining up putts
– Shape takes a bit of getting used to
Another great model in the Ping 2021 putter range is the Fetch, a mallet putter ideal for those wanting some added forgiveness to off centre strikes and an altogether more stable putter.
As you can see, the hole in the bottom of this putter is where it gets the name Fetch, and this hole can be used to fetch the ball from off the ground, rather than having to bend down to pick it up.
It is an important part of the design of this putter as well as it being a useful tool. In the Heppler model of the Fetch – shown below – you can see this is visible at address, something Ping have removed for the 2021 version to save weight and increase the overall MOI of the putter.
This has created an altogether more appealing look from address as well as a more stable putter. Ping have added an excellent sight line at the top to help with aiming and striking the ball too and, for us, it’s the stand out mallet in the 2021 range.
Ping Heppler Fetch Putter
+ Will help with consistency
– The look won’t be for everyone
This has been a really big success for the brand and Lee Westwood has used both the Heppler and Sigma Fetch depending on the speed of the greens. The centre cut-out means you can pick the ball out of the hole (when we’re finally allowed to take the flagstick out) and this and the colour contrasting are great to help with your alignment.
This will generally suit a straight stoke and has a high forgiveness which should help with your long putting.
Ping Heppler Ketsch Putter
+ Brilliant for alignment and any stroke
– It’s not the cheapest out there
This is the only putter in the nine-strong Heppler family that has three alignment lines which really help to frame the ball. As opposed to the Vault 2.0 Ketsch this is far more forgiving given its half steel, half aluminium make-up. This mallet will generally suit a straight and slight arc stroke and, if you like this type of look, then this is a great option.
Ping 2021 Tyne 4 Putter
+ Iconic, Tour-proven shape
– Hard to differentiate in from other Tyne models
Back to the 2021 range of putters from Ping now, and its the iconic Tyne that also features on our best Ping putters list.
This putter is ideal if you don’t like using a much smaller blade head, but want a putter that supports a strongly arced putting stroke.
There is a tungsten weight in the heel and a steel weight in the toe to help give the Tyne the toe weighting and these weights also make it a vert stable putter at impact.
The fang shape of the Tyne is also a great guide for lining up the ball on the green and provides a much better cue at address than a standard blade. We’d recommend this putter if you are after a putter with the stability of a mallet and have a strong arc in your putting stroke.
Ping Heppler Piper Armlock Putter
+ The head looks great and maybe the best looker in the family
– Putting armlock takes a bit of getting used to so is quiet niche
The Piper comes in both a centre shaft and armlock model with the latter being a non-adjustable double-bend shaft with a 21-inch grip. This mid-mallet has a high MOI and 6˚ of standard loft. Like the rest of the Heppler family there is plenty of visual interest and the classic head shape will appeal to plenty. We liked it so much, it was also included in our best mallet putters guide.
Ping Heppler Tomcat 14 Putter
+ We all need help on the greens and in our stroke, this does it
– This is the most ‘out there’ putter and not one for the traditionalist
This is another that should suit plenty of strokes and tastes. One of the most forgiving putters on the market, this has the most forgiveness in the Heppler family and there is plenty going on with the airport runway lights catching the eye and the imagination. The dots actually get closer together from front to back to simulate motion.
More forgiveness is becoming more popular in putters these days and this should really help with your pace putting. Good for your confidence.
Ping Heppler Tyne 3 Putter
+ Sits great and fantastic for short putts
– Again, not the cheapest putter on the market
This mallet will suit an arced stroke and has been a big success for Ping. There is a nice little visual story here; at address it appears that the aluminium and steel are 50-50 but the steel, created by a thick back flange, accounts for 2/3 of the weight which means there is a lower centre of gravity and more forgiveness.
This fang-shaped putter offers a lot of stability and as such we included it in our guide on the best putters for high handicappers.
Ping Sigma 2 Valor 400 Putter
+ It’s rock solid, both in looks and weight
– Heavy putters are quite niche and need some getting used to
This counter-balanced mallet offers a 15-inch grip, 38’’ shaft and with a 400-gram head is the heaviest in the 11-model family. Fifty grams has been added to the butt end to encourage a pendulum-like stroke and this is the most forgiving Sigma putter. Fits either type of stroke and, if you like your putter to have a simple look to it, then this should appeal.
Ping Sigma 2 Anser Putter
+ Looks amazing and guaranteed to inspire
– Not as forgiving as many so you’ll need a tidy stroke
The Anser has always been crucial to the Ping family – the model turned 50 in 2016 – and this is the Sigma 2 version. This features the traditional heel-toe ballast and is so easy on the eye it’s always a delight. The alignment line sees you set up to the ball easily and, while it might not boast huge forgiveness, that’s not really why you’d be giving this a go.
If you want to feel good about yourself standing over a putt and looking down on something special this ticks that box. Also comes in a Stealth finish.
