Ping extends Scottsdale TR putter line
Thursday, October 10, 2013
LAKE FOREST, Ill. – Ping Golf brought three new additions to the Scottsdale TR putter family to the BMW Championship at Conway Farms Golf Club on Monday. The Anser T, Craz-E and Senita B join the other 12 putters that had previously comprised the line.
The Anser B is a heel-toe weighted blade that features a bridge-style white alignment line that extends from the leading edge back to the flange. The Craz-E is a mid-size mallet design that has been popular in several other Ping putter lines. The Senita B will come standard at 38 inches in length and feature a 17-inch grip and 50-gram counterbalancing weight at the top of the shaft.
Ping has not yet announced the cost of the new putters, but confirmed that they will be available at retail in November.
Like all of the previous Scottsdale TR putters, the three additions have a dark finish and a grooved face insert. The grooves are designed to be deeper in the center of the insert and shallower near the edges. According to Ping's engineers, the deeper grooves slow putts down more than the shallow grooves. By varying the depth of the grooves across the face insert, Ping says that the Scottsdale TR helps to improve distance control.
