Ping, by its own ad­mis­sion, isn’t as dom­i­nant in the put­ter mar­ket as it is in woods and irons, but the launch of the new Vault line looks set to get more Ping flat-sticks into golfers’ hands. Truly things of beauty and named af­ter places in Karsten Sol­heim’s home­land of Nor­way, this pre­mium range com­prises two blades and two mal­lets, all avail­able in a classy plat­inum or slate fin­ish.

They are de­signed to pro­vide the ul­ti­mate in feel and fi­nesse as well as the roll per­for­mance all golfers de­mand, de­liv­ered through vari­abledepth TR grooves. Fully ma­chined from a forged bil­let of stain­less steel, the Voss is an ex­cit­ing new blade de­sign with a ball-width cav­ity, but many will still sway to­wards the clas­sic and in­stantly recog­nis­able Anser 2. The Ber­gen mal­let is an evo­lu­tion of the pop­u­lar Ketsch, while the Oslo is a more com­pact mal­let de­sign.

Al­ready a hit among Ping’s tour play­ers, these new of­fer­ings are as pleas­ing on the eye as they are ef­fec­tive on the greens. Words Joel Tad­man Pic­ture Kim Por­ritt
