10 Best Ping Clubs Of All Time

Anser Putter

No putter has more worldwide victories than the Ping Anser. Over the last 40 or so years this iconic design has notched up more than 500 wins on the major professional tours, and they’re still coming.

The idea for the Anser came to Karsten Solheim in a flash of inspiration. So sudden was the brainwave that he had to sketch the design on the nearest thing to hand: the dust jacket of a long-playing record.

The name came from Karsten’s wife Louise who suggested it was the “Answer” to putting. In order to fit the name on the back of the blade the W was left out, hence: Anser. It's one of the best putter designs of all time and is still being made today, ranking among the best putters on the market.

Eye 2 irons and wedge

The Eye 2 irons and wedges have achieved legendary status amongst avid golfers. Incredibly, they're still being used sparsely at golf clubs today despite being well over 30 years old. They're definitely some of the best Ping irons ever made.

The huge face and groove area may have even inspired the full-face wedges we've seen making a return in recent years.

Eye 2 Driver

The original Eye 2 driver came out in the early 80s and is another to have achieved legendary status.

It's not actually persimmon, in fact laminated maple.

G15 Irons

The G15 irons from 2009 debuted Ping's 'Custom Tuning Port' which allowed the face to be thinner, weight to be put in around the perimeter and the MOI to increase.

They were a hit with club golfers due to their forgiveness and distance, with many sets likely still in use today.

G2 Driver

Ping's 2002 G2 driver was one of the first 460cc driver heads on the market and made waves on Tour and in the amateur game.

It was still in the bag for many players 10 years on and came with a great feel, unique sound and easy alignment.

Some 20+ years on, Ping's 'G' series is still going and their drivers are still some of the best on the market.

G430 LST Driver

From the G2 all the way to the G430 range! The LST model is now part of the range, which stands for 'Low Spin Technology' to mainly cater for the faster-swinging players.

The 2023 G430 LST driver had a tough job of improving on the popular G425 range, but it did so thanks a Carbonfly wrap to save weight and a much improved sound and feel. It's among the best golf drivers on the market.

S55 Irons

The S55 irons came out in 2013 and were Ping's first accomplished better player irons to get widespread use on tour and among low-handicap amateurs.

They were so good that many still play them and Bubba Watson only took them out of the bag in late 2018 after five years of using them.

Craz-e putter

The CRAZ-E putter began in the G2i range and has been seen in many iterations since.

The design was a bold one at the time and the originals are now iconic with the silver/blue colorway. It was a forgiving mallet that club golfers loved - another of Ping's clubs that will still be in many bags today.

TiSi Driver

The TiSi titanium driver first hit shelves in the late 90s and had a head size of 330cc.

It was said to be the longest driver in the world at the time, with players using it at the World Long Drive Championship.

G Crossover

Hybrids bridged the gap between irons and fairway woods but Ping's original G Crossover did this in a unique way.

The next generation, the G400 Crossover, improved upon the original too - a great club for people who don't enjoy hitting long irons or hybrids but still wanted forgiveness.
