They say you make about 50% of your shots on the course with your putter. Performing on the green is an essential area of the game; you can drive it 300 yards down the middle every time but if you can’t putt, you’ll be having a hard time making par.

Playing good golf comes down to two factors: the player’s ability, and the equipment they’re using. While it’s essential to practice to get your game in shape, the latter undoubtedly compliments the former.

PING is one of the leading golf putter brands, and their clubs are known to benefit all manner of golfers, from those just starting out through to veteran professionals of the game. So, let’s take a look at some quality tour players and the kind of PING putters they’re putting in the bag to help them perform at the highest level.

 

Which Tour players use PING golf putters?

The best in the world are going to be quite selective over choosing the gear they head out to play with. That’s why it’s a bit of a good sign about a club if it’s been in a player’s bag for a while and they’re getting on well with it.

 

Viktor Hovland

Viktor Hovland’s game has been on fire recently. In the latter half of August, he won both the BMW Championship and the Tour championship in a back-to-back frenzy, as well as being crowned this season’s FedEx Cup winner.

At the Tour championship, Hovland went 50 for 50 on putts within five feet and under for the week. He achieved that incredible figure in part thanks to this custom PLD DS 72 golf putter.

Forged from a solid block of stainless steel, this putter is precisely shaped to offer you an optically-pleasing, confidence-inspiring appeal. You’ll be ready to go for the hole every time.

The club has a mid-mallet shape and features an alignment line that demonstrates where the ball should be positioned when you’re standing over the ball at address.

 

Tony Finau

When it comes to American golfers, Tony Finau’s name often comes up among fan-favourites. He has represented the United States’ national team before in situations like last year’s Presidents Cup, and wouldn’t have won the Mexico Open a few months ago if it wasn’t for his trusty PING PLD Anser 2D putter.

This bladed putter has a wide profile and soft feel to help you maintain consistent strikes when you’re putting around the greens. There are tungsten weights in the heel and toe to make the golf putter feel stable and help reduce any tendencies to jab the ball.

The club is available in both silver and matte black, and looks particularly striking in the latter. The PING brand name is written in white block capitals, and the white alignment line prompts some deadly accuracy.

 

PING's latest golf putters

If you’re itching to follow your golfing heroes and play with the same kind of golf putters they do, PING has a whole range of golf putters that cater to different abilities and budgets.

Releasing fantastic golf putters year after year, the clubs in PING’s PLD Milled range are a testament to the company’s consistent quality. As we’ve mentioned with Hovland’s putter, these clubs are precisely-shaped from stainless steel and have an aggressive milling pattern on the face to give you excellent control.

The latest putters are the cream of PING’s crop. The 2023 range houses 11 distinct models, including Tony Finau’s Anser 2D putter. Within the range there are four different kinds of face tech, creating a unique impact feel for each individual model. It’s not just the faces of the clubs that are special, each club has it’s own kind of alignment aid so you’ll be sure to find the club that looks and feels great to you.

The best in the world train day-in-day-out to get to their prestigious positions, but they still use the same equipment like the rest of us.
