PING's new putter caters for golfers of all heights

If you are a regular reader of my blogs you will know my frustration that every time a manufacturer launches a new putter they don't cater for short lady golfers like myself.

So I was delighted to read that PING has just introduced a new putter, called the Ketsch, that you can buy with an adjustable length shaft, allowing for length adjustment from between 31 and 38 inches - great if you are especially tall or short like me! Or as PING suggest to customise the putter to suit your body type and putting style.

Aside from this great feature the Ketsch putter has been precision milled 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 aluminium, 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. Grooves are deepest in the centre and shallower toward the perimeter, which PING calls True Roll (TR) Technology. PING studies show an increase in ball-speed consistency of nearly 50% compared to a non-grooved face when measured at nine points across the face. 
The Ketsch is available in three shaft bends to fit any stroke type: Straight, Slight Arc, or Strong Arc priced at Adjustable £199, Counter Balanced Adjustable £224, Fixed £175, Counter Balanced Fixed £200.
