One birdie and no three putts today.


It is nice and you can pick up the ball.  


I love the adjustable grip.  You can shorten it up for a lighter feel or

make it longer for less strain on your back when you practice (6’4” me loves a longer putter). I believe it's a feature that will soon to be copied by others.  


for the most part i imagine you will set it up and leave it alone ( illegal to change it during a round i think).  I imagine a discussion about shortening it an inch for faster greens at some point here.


Did I mention that you can pick up the ball.


I repeat you can pick up the ball.


Saw a few wonders about damaging the cup.  Not a worry, in fact if you’ve ever used the ball to fix a cup’s side before you can now nudge a small piece back into place with your putter.


At first tamping down a ball mark repair is odd, the center of the putter is a hole, but you quickly adapt.

My OCD wonders how the finish will hold up around the edges of the ball fetcher.  Its been my experience the finishes are fragile on the newer Ping putters.  At least it’s a silver finish.  As a 6’4” golfer, I can appreciate a longer putter as well, and I’mconstantly bouncing between 35 and 36” lengths.  Thanks for sharing your first impressions.

A firm waggle and you can see some flex as with most everyone I try.  Not noticeable to me in play.  

It is a soft feeling thing though.  So if you think the shaft is a bit soft the feeling will convince you of it.  

A friend still has an old Spaulding  tpm with the old pecil shaft. I mention it as that shaft is about the softest I have ever tried and the ping shaft is much firmer.

After seeing it in person, I think it will actually draw a number of players that might not even be attracted to it for its Fetching abilities. Its a really good shape, almost like a mini Taylormade Corza, not to mention custom length is over looked IMO.

Completely agree. It's much more attractive in person.

after further review, I still like it. will admit that I'm relearning a straight stroke after years with toe drop putters

Discovered I am a creature of habit.  still reach down to get the ball after a short putt,  longer putts I remember to use the fetch, I will get it eventually.  I have been asked about it a lot on the practice green when people see me both make putts and pick them out of the hole.  

for another OCD guy, after several trips into the hole I see no abrasions on the putter.  

I have used it to tamp a hole's side back into shape, works nice for that, the Fetch helps you leave the course in better shape than you found it.  

Now it's a winner on tour, seems fast for a retail release to a win.
