TECH: New milled alu­minium face in­serts have vari­able depth and width grooves to de­liver con­sis­tent across-the-face ball speed per­for­mance. Feel is en­hanced by a high­en­ergy elas­tomer in­sert.

WE SAY: A classic toe and heel weighted de­sign is com­bined with a scal­loped back. A plumber’s neck means a slight toe hang, mak­ing it a good match for a slightly arc­ing stroke.

The head’s re­ally clean and sim­ple and the plat­inum fin­ish looks very sleek with a single align­ment line. Ping’s big new thing is the alu­minium face in­sert and vari­able width and depth grooves. It means you get a slightly higher MOI from this tra­di­tional blade as weight’s re­moved from the face. All three testers felt they holed more than their fair share with the Kin­loch.

VER­DICT: For golfers who like tinker­ing with their put­ter, Ping’s ad­justable length shaft should def­i­nitely be an op­tion. It means you can change your set-up in an in­stant. We re­ally liked the qual­ity fin­ish, ex­cel­lent new feel, sound and roll.
