PING Launches its WGC-winning Nome putter3 min read

‘I felt like I could make just about any putt…’ Hunter Mahan

PING has officially introduced its new Nome™ putter a few days after the new design made headlines when PING Professional, Hunter Mahan, won the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship using a Nome that he introduced into his game on the Monday before the event.

ping“It felt great immediately and it gave me a lot of confidence so I could just trust my aim and stroke the ball freely,” said Mahan, who added the putter to his bag after an alignment-testing session with PING’s Senior Player Development Manager Matt Rollins.

“Long putts, big-breaking putts. I felt like I could make just about any putt I looked at.” All week in interviews, he credited the Nome for his exceptional putting on the fast, undulating greens that yielded him 35 birdies.

The putter, which is precision milled from high-grade aluminum and features tungsten weighting in the sole, arrives in golf shops around the world beginning in early April and is available in standard and belly length versions.

“Hunter’s win was thrilling, and we were proud to see him play with such confidence in his game and his PING equipment, the Nome in particular,” said John A. Solheim, PING Chairman & CEO. “To go undefeated in six matches against an elite field of 64 is a testament to how hard he has worked on strengthening every aspect of his game, and he really worked magic with the Nome. It was fun to watch.”

The Nome’s ability to improve aim is a result of the putter’s black alignment bar and contrasting white sightline. Its extreme forgiveness comes from a lightweight, high-grade aluminum frame featuring tungsten sole weighting that optimises the CG position and elevates MOI, making the Nome highly accurate. Three different shaft bends are available to fit Straight, Slight Arc, or Strong Arc putting strokes.

Golfers can determine their stroke type using the iPING Fit™ feature on the club maker’s new iPING™ putter app, a free download through the App Store™. Matching the putter model with stroke type is a new form of putter fitting that PING calls Fit For Stroke™. The company’s research has found that when the putter model matches a player’s stroke type, the putting stroke becomes more consistent, the key to making more putts.

PING, innovative as ever, have pioneered a small, lightweight carry-bag with the original Moon, and since then the model has become a ‘must have’ among golfers of all ages. Now, the engineers at PING have made the original pencil bag even lighter, more spacious and feature packed than ever before.ping 2

The 2012 Moon-Lite II holds every feature expected from a lightweight bag and more. These include a three-way top with extended nose for optimal balance, and an adjustable standing strap.  The Moon-Lite II has three pockets, including large apparel and accessory pockets and a bespoke water-bottle holder. Importantly, although it weighs just 2lbs due to its lightweight nylon construction, the bag will comfortably hold a full-set of 14 clubs.
