Ping launches limited-edition Ketch putters in camo



In January, Ping officially announced a custom-putter program called PLD1 (Ping Putting Lab Design) that allows any golfer to create a one-off, fully customized beauty like the pros. Today, the company is showing off a new level of customization with a limited-edition putter launch.

Ping has released two versions of what it’s calling its PLD2 putters — the Camo Ketsch Realtree Xtra and the Camo Ketsch Muddy Girl — that are “part of the lab’s effort to advance new putter design, technology and engineering concepts,” according to the company.


In this case, the camo graphics are the advancement Ping cooked up in its lab. They were added to the putters with a proprietary anodized sealing process called “Permodize,” which permeates the aluminum putter heads to create “vibrant and rich detail while creating an extremely hard, durable shell,” according to Ping’s Chairman and CEO John A. Solheim.

Solheim says the Ketch putter model was chosen specifically for the camo design because of its complex geometry, which “challenged [Ping] to execute the process to its fullest extent.” And according to Solheim, more of this can be expected from his company in the future.

“This type of technology has functional and decorative applications that we look forward to utilizing in the future,” he said.


Beginning today, golfers can order the PLD2 Camo Ketsch Realtree Xtra and Camo Ketsch Muddy Girl putters ($325 each) through Ping authorized golf shops.

    Call me crazy but I appreciate custom runs like this for companies outside of golf, and if i had the extra cash i’d purchase one, just to be different and to annoy the S*** out of traditionalists

Member CC_Stryder – Toulon Rochester

Looking for a putter that gets its names from a city in New York state with a flow neck? Well…the name might not be exactly what you are looking for, but if a flow neck is what you are after, then look no further.

Member StillCantPutt – PXG BlackJack Putter

The newest putter from PXG at less than new price. Don’t let the seller’s name discourage you either, this thing should help you sink more putts.
