Ping Redwood Anser
Golf Monthly Verdict

A lovely look to this classic-shaped Ping putter, and a great feel off the blade on any length of putt. Enjoyable to use and everything you'd expect of a Ping putter at this price point. Felt it could prove an extremely useful addition to the bag. Excellent. Where next?

    This is a putter with great feel at any length.

Redwood is a new range of milled putters featuring classic Ping head shapes. The 303 stainless steel heads are designed to provide a slightly heavier, more solid feel. The heads are 100% milled to fine tolerances for precision and to create a classic look. The rich black-nickel chrome colouring, also used in Ping's Tour wedges, provides the finishing touch.

In his current role, Neil is responsible for testing drivers and golf balls. Having been a part of the Golf Monthly team for over 15 years and playing off a handicap of 3, he has the experience to compare performance between models, brands and generations. For 2022 he thinks the main trend in drivers is: "In a word, consistency. Whilst all the brands are talking about ball speed (and the new drivers are certainly long), my biggest finding has been how much more consistent the ball flights are. Mishits don't seem to be causing the same level of drop-off or increase in the spin numbers. This means that more shots seem to be flying the way you want them to!" As far as golf balls are concerned the biggest development is in the, "three piece, non-Tour, urethane-covered section. For regular golfers, these models offer superb performance at both ends of the bag without denting your wallet quite as much as the premium Tour-played options."

Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he is now the brand's Digital Editor and covers everything from Tour player interviews to gear reviews. In his time at Golf Monthly, he has covered equipment launches that date back well over a decade. He clearly remembers the launch of the Callaway and Nike square drivers as well as the white TaylorMade driver families, such as the RocketBallz! If you take a look at the Golf Monthly YouTube channel, you'll see his equipment videos dating back over a decade! He has also conducted 'What's In The Bag' interviews with many of the game's best players like Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm. Over the years, Neil has tested a vast array of products in each category and at drastically different price-points.
