PREVIEW: Ping TR 1966 Anser-style putters, celebrating 50 years

A half-century after Karsten Solheim introduced the Anser-style putter and changed the short game forever, Ping is celebrating the anniversary with a pair of new putters dubbed the TR 1966 line.

The new putters, ideal for a putting stroke with a slight arc, are based on scans of the original Anser and Anser 2 designs, done in an effort to better analyze what Solheim did by hand to craft the putters. Starting with that classic base, Ping added their True-Roll face technology, which is a milling technique designed to deliver more consistency and get the ball rolling forward to the target faster.

The TR 1966 Anser, which comes in a manganese bronze PVD finish, has a sound slot in the sole and doesn't have an alignment line. It has a more rounded look and a thicker top line.

The TR 1966 Anser 2, with a stainless-steel blast finish, has a white alignment line on the flange, while it looks less rounded on the toe and heel. The top line is thinner.

The Ping TR 1966 putters will be available in March for $163 each.
