When my daughter saw both the Anser and Oslo putters next to each other, she said “Oh dad I like the look of those”, high praise for the designers in Scottsdale as she is more into fashion and doesn’t play golf. But she is right both putters look great especially at address.
I took both with me to test in the Admirals Cup ProAm in St Kitts and Nevis.
Ping have incorporated their patented TR face technology in the Anser 2 to help improve a players touch and speed control, the individually milled face pattern varies in depth and pitch across the face, helping to maintain a consistent speed even on off-centre strikes.
The Anser 2 blade utilises a fully machined 303 stainless steel forged billet to help ensure quality, precision feel and sound and uses Ping’s Pistol 62 grip.

To take a putter straight into competition is a tough ask but I really enjoyed the new Anser – I still have my original bronze Anser so I have always loved the design.
The feel at impact was soft and the face milling certainly helped keep the distance when I didn’t quite hit the putt out of the middle. I also enjoyed the pistol 62 grip, it sat perfectly in my palm and just added to the confidence I felt over the putter and making several birdies during the tournament also added to that feeling.
The workmanship is second to none and after spending time with James Wood at Crews Hill Golf Club on his Quintic System, the knowledge learned on that day helped me appreciate how good the new Anser 2 is. I would recommend you get one of these in your hands the next time you are in your professional shop.
