Five New Models Join PLD Milled Putter Series3 min read

Posted on: 14th Feb 2024

Five new models represent the newest additions to the Putting Lab Design (PLD) programme, PING CEO & President John K. Solheim announced today.

The 2024 PLD Milled Anser, Anser 2D, Oslo 3 and DS72 and Ally Blue 4 are available at PING authorised retailers committed to selling premium, custom-fit putters.

“We’ve been very pleased with the results and feedback across the entire PLD programme,” said Solheim. “It allows us to bring golfers more of what we do best – design and build the highest-performing putters in the game. A key part of the program is the PLD Milled series, which offers premium, milled putters inspired by tour players to bring golfers the latest in score-lowering performance on the green. These five new designs continue that commitment and offer every golfer a model to fit their stroke and eye.”

Tour-Inspired, Tour-Proven

The five new PLD Milled models (UK RRP £450) represent a combination of standard-setting favourites like the Anser and newer, tour-proved models like the DS72, the choice of 2023 FedEx Cup Champion Viktor Hovland. The Anser 2D and Oslo 3 are tour-influenced, high-MOI designs and the Ally Blue 4 is a new, multi-material mallet that delivers exceptional forgiveness with can’t-miss alignment features.

Four of the new models (Anser, Anser 2D, DS72 and Oslo 3) are fully machined from forged, 303 stainless steel and each is distinguished by an attractive gun-metal finish. The deep AMP (Aggressive Milling Pattern) face technology on all the models is precisely milled for tour-preferred sound, feel and speed. More than four hours of milling time are required for every model, precisely shaping every surface and radius to achieve the high quality and premium look expected in a precision-milled putter.

The Ally Blue 4 is a fully machined, three-piece design differentiated by its square footprint and full length, top alignment aid. The strong arc design consists of an aluminium body, stainless steel soleplate and aluminium hosel to create an extremely high MOI, easy to align mallet. The gunmetal finish contrasts with a matte black body and hosel to create a stunning, confidence- inspiring design.

“Part of our goal with the PLD programme is to offer our most popular models from the past and add new, tour-influenced designs on a regular basis,” Solheim said. “This year’s additions represent an exciting balance of that strategy. As we collaborate on new designs with our engineers and tour staff through the PLD programme, we’ll expand the line to ensure golfers have access to our newest technologies and processes.”
