I have to say I am very impressed by the look and design of the Ping Oslo and as I place it in the address position it certainly feels great too, but the ultimate test will be using this putter in a ProAm tournament, so no pressure then.

Technology

Milled from 6061 T-6 aluminium on-site in PING’s machine shop where craftsmen oversee every detail, including the milling of PING’s new TrueRoll (TR) face technology. This technology helps improve stability and roll from the stainless steel bottom weighting, this also helps boost the putters MOI and lowers the CG.

The Oslo utilises a precision double-bend shaft that can be adjusted to match either a Slight Arc or Straight stroke type and has a small footprint and low-level sightline.

The new PING Pistol – PP62 – grip shape fits perfectly into the palm of your hand giving you a more-consistent grip pressure. The lightweight (68g), oversized grip’s soft, tacky polymer construction helps to give you that all important feel when trying to make that 6-footer.

Conclusions:

Firstly, I have to say I am a blade man and have been most of my life, but it came to light during a putting lesson with James Wood at Crews Hill Golf Club on his Quintic System – see feature in this issue – that a mallet style putter would suit my stroke better.

With that in mind the second day of the ProAm was the time for the Oslo mallet style putter to make its mark on the tournament, and like the Anser you could see straight away how the milling on the face helps keep the distance on miss hit putts - of which I hit a few - and adjusting to the mallet design took me several holes.

But once I was used to the different hand position the mallet putter puts you in I really started to just concentrate on the roll. The ball comes off the putter really well, that soft feel and sound at impact were perfect and I was really enjoying the slate grey finish at address.

I could certainly see - and my scorecard reflected this - the forgiveness a mallet gives you and I holed some very nice crucial putts. The workmanship like all the vault series is second to none and if you are in the market for a new putter I would certainly make sure you put the Oslo to the test.
