PING release the new precision milled Ketsch putter, which is said to offer unprecedented distance control, extreme forgiveness, and accurate alignment. It is the newest model to benefit from variable-depth grooves, which produce consistent results across the face. A 17-4 stainless steel sole weight creates a high MOI and makes the aluminum, mallet-style head highly forgiving.

“What really stands out about the Ketsch is the captured look it provides at address, inspiring confidence and promoting a consistent stroke, the key to holing more putts,” said John A. Solheim, PING Chairman & CEO. “It has three white, contrasting alignment aids extending from the top of the matte-black crown. The centre line runs all the way to the back to make aiming easy. Our research shows that the head shape promotes extremely consistent alignment for the majority of golfers. Those factors, combined with our revolutionary variable-depth grooves and a high MOI, will help golfers putt more consistently.”

Variable-depth grooves milled into the face ensure ball-speed consistency whether the ball is struck in the centre of the face, toward the heel or toe, high or low. The variable depth grooves are tethered with the deepest grooves at the centre and shallow out towards the perimeter. PING calls this True Roll (TR) Technology.

There is a choice of a fixed-length shaft (35 inches is standard), or you can upgrade to an adjustable-length version, which you can modify between 31 and 38 inches prior to a round.

The Ketsch is available in three shaft bends to fit any stroke type: Straight, Slight Arc, or Strong Arc. Results from hundreds of player and robot tests at PING show that golfers are more consistent with a putter balanced to fit their stroke type.
