Golf Clubs : What You Should Know About Ping Golf Clubs

Sep 7, 2008
A well-known golfer by the name of Karsten Solheim was having problems with his putting game and decided to create his own putter. He designed and engineered a great putter with the heel to toe weight theory in mind. He was so impressed with the sound he heard when he hit the ball the he named it Ping, thus the name of the company that produces these excellent golf clubs.

Ping golf clubs are now known around the world and are used by some of the top champions in golf today. Even though the first clubs were manufactured in his garage, he was a busy man when it came to making these clubs for people who requested them. Now located in Arizona, Ping golf clubs are a golfer?s delight. You hit the ball and get that crisp clear ping sound the lets you know you had a perfect hit.

During this time, the Ping golf clubs have already become quite popular in golf circles everywhere. Sales were growing continuously with every week. But when the Ping golf clubs were featured in Sports Illustrated, that is when business became seriously big for Solheim. Ping golf clubs were suddenly all the rage, and golfers everywhere couldn't wait to get their hands on a set of the pleasant-sounding putters.

After creating a new putter, in 1961 Solheim designed and built his first set of irons. He called the irons 69. He felt that a score of 69 was a good round of golf. He made further modifications to the heel-toe weightings. A cavity was placed in the back portion of the irons to help improve shots.

In 1966, the USGA decided that nearly all of the PING putters were disallowed from tournament play. The only PING putter that would still be allowed for tournament play was the recently design Anser putter. The Anser would revolutionize the putter in golf. It had a cavity back and low center of gravity. It offered a superior feeling for golfers of all abilities. It set the mark for what is now considered the conventional putter. PING clubs have over 500 professional tournament victories to their name. The PING Anser putter has more tournament wins than any other.
