That putter looks like it has two different necks welded together.  There's evidence of a weld and the mill marks go different directions.  Seems kind of odd though... can't image what would be behind that??

Custom neck from ping WRX.  I think the story goes they took a long neck and took a chunk out to get the weight and toe flow correct.  The info is on hear somewhere.

Kinda hoping this is the year a lefty finally wins the US Open.  Been a minute

  I hadn't read that, but it makes sense.  I'm surprised they couldn't just mill something for him to those specs, but I assume they know what they're doing.  FWIW, I prefer the narrative of him smoking it on a tree and having to have it repaired:)

Agree on Phil... it would be very satisfying to see him get it done.  He's playing great golf, but you have to think he's running out of chances.  Old Man Time is a SOB!

Yeah, that's what I thought...

That would actually drive me mad on a putter, even though my wedges are 'Raw'.

Ping doesn't make carbon putters, it's against their beliefs.  Must be that new rusting stainless steel.

Stainless will rust. Had to send 2 redwood stainless Putters back with the starshot finish. Both had significant rust. Over the years lots of their irons have rusted in cavities. Send them back, no comment are just replaced.

No stainless will not rust - that's the basic definition of stainless.  If the something gets impregnated within the surface that can rust along with water/fertilizer/salt, you can get some induced corrosion but the stainless itself doesn't rust on its own.
