SPOTTED: New Ping Vault 2.0 putters

Published

on

Ping unveiled new “Vault 2.0” putters on the PGA Tour at the 2018 Sony Open in Hawaii on Monday, and forum member tod071 was there to capture photos of them all. The Vault 2.0 putters, as their names imply, are likely replacements for the Vault putters that were released in 2016. The original Vault release, however, consisted of four models — Anser 2, Voss, Oslo and Bergen — that were fully machined from 303 stainless steel. Judging by the photos we shot at the 2018 Sony Open, it appears there’s some additions to the Vault lineup in the 2.0 versions, as highlighted below.

While we do not have tech information on putters at this time, check out the photos below of each of the putter models, some of which appear to be offered in platinum, slate and bronze finishes. Also, join the discussion here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the Vault 2.0 putters.

    Laguna…. Laaaguna…. Laguuuuna…. Lagunaaaaaaaaaah

    Scotty has brought back the Laguna but only for tour only. It’s the putter Tiger used to win so many tournaments. Pings look weak and stale compared to the strong Scotty’s like the Laguna.

      The Laguna is just a variation (less charitable people might say “copy”) of the Ping “My Day” which dates back to the 60’s, you do know that, don’t you?

      Scotty hasn’t done anything successful that wasn’t first a Ping or Wilson TPA design.

      I’m a Scotty Newport 2.5 user. I don’t have a Ping or Wilson TPA putter in my collection, just before anyone screams bias or hater.

    Just purchased a Counter-balanced Doon. It has the “ping” of a 1-A, and a very clean look. The ball rolls perfectly off the face without any skid, and the added weight gives me a very smooth stroke.

      “without any skid” you say? That’s impossible and testing has shown that the ball skids in the first quarter to one third of the length of the putt regardless of putter and face design.
      The added weight will only give you a smooth stroke on long putts because you are swinging faster. On shorter putts the added weight will cause your slower stroke to wobble, and that’s a fact.

    All these Ping putters look the same from previous models sold in the 1990s. Does anybody else see the similarities? What makes these Vault putters so special now in 2018? Anybody?

    • Realist

      Try looking into the tech of the putter face. These are not your typical no tech scotty cameron etc. Who cares if they look the same… they roll the ball much purer and more consistently regardless of where yous trike it on the face. Ill take that all day

      • ralph

        The face milling on these putters are not high tech and it will not roll the ball purer and more consistently if you hit all over the face. That’s because the milling is different from heel to toe. You must hit it on the sweet spot to be consistent. That seems so obvious.

    Great looking Vault 2.0 putters.
    If they ever come out with a Copper D66, I’d be all over that.

    Ping G LS Tec 9° – Mitsubishi Kuro Kage DC TiNi 60 @ 44.75″ – X
    Ping G 5 Wood @ 16.5° – Ping Tour 65 + 1/2″ – X
    Ping G 7 Wood @ 21.5° – Ping Tour 80 – X
    Ping i200 (5-PW) – KBS Tour Stiff + 1/2″
    Ping Glide 2.0 – SS 50°/ WS 56°@ 55°/ TS 60°- Ping AWT 2.0 Wedge + 1/2″

      Yer a childish show=off gearhead and probably a fake too.

    • HDTVMAN

      Jan 10, 2018 at 4:10 pm

      How do you like the i200 blades? I have been very tempted to pick up a set.

      • ImaPlayah

        Jan 10, 2018 at 7:48 pm

        Go ahead because you will not be disappointed. They are sweet irons.

    Did I miss something in the article about price?

    • PaulG

      Jan 10, 2018 at 7:52 pm

      They are somewhere between $400 – 500, but they don’t come with an instruction manual. You have to figure out how to putt with them.

    Anyone know if they’ll be Sigma 2.0? Copper Tyne would be sick.

      Beryllium copper would be “sick”. Plain old copper is ho hum.

2021 GolfWRX Holiday Gift Guide: Golf gifts for the Purist

Published

on

It’s that time of year again, GolfWRX members, the moment we start filling our wish lists with the golf gear we want this holiday season.

The GolfWRX Holiday Gift Guide was created to ensure that our readers give (and hopefully receive) the very best golf gifts on the planet. These gift ideas will suit any budget, and each item was hand-picked by our staff.

In an effort to provide more value and tailored recommendations, we’re targeting “the purist,” “the gearhead,” “the value seeker,” “the golfer looking to get better,” “the clothes horse,” and “the big spender.”

You know the purist by his/her love forged irons, natural fibers, and Golden Age golf courses.

Here are our best recommendations for “the purist” in your life.

The Making of Pacific Dunes by Tom Doak – $50

In The Making of Pacific Dunes, Doak shares his experience in building the second course at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. Doak recounts his journey from the first day, explaining how he found each hole and put the routing together, and what his crew did and didn’t do to build this “distractingly beautiful and unfailingly challenging golf course.”

Buy here.

Artisan Wedges – $300 each

As seen in the bag of the likes of Abraham Ancer on tour, Artisan wedges are handcrafted to fit the profile of each individual and are a must-have for all golf purists.

Wedges start at $300 each for a Satin raw finish, standard Dynamic Gold shaft and standard Tour Velvet grip, with a trip to Texas required for the fitting process which includes a morning or afternoon hitting balls with the Artisan team so that they can understand your short game in order to truly customize each wedge to your game.

Book here.

Titleist Pro V1, Pro V1x: $49.95

The No. 1 ball in golf, yes. Most widely played on the PGA Tour by a wide margin, yes — no doubt the performance of the Titleist Pro V1 is best-in-class. But for the purist, there’s nothing in the golf ball space quite so iconic as the “Titleist” script stamped on the Pro V1. 

Buy here.

Fore Ewe Headcover – $55

Purists will love For Ewe’s headcovers, which are all made from start to finish in Portland, Oregon using 100 percent wool yarn. All of the yarn is spun and double waxed to ensure that it knits smoothly and lasts, while each cone is skein dyed to make sure the colors are rich and consistent.

This holiday-themed set features a charcoal, dark red, and white color scheme with the covers starting from $55.

Buy here.

8″ Leather Mac Mackenzie Bag – $1,055

No purists collection is complete without a Mackenzie bag. The 8″ Leather Mac is made from navy leather, trimmed in red and white leather. The bag features a white & red split bottom and has an 8” opening with just the solo pocket.

Buy here.

The Golfer’s Journal: $75/year

Do you subscribe to The Golfer’s Journal? If you consider yourself a purist, it’s surprising if you don’t. And if you’re buying a gift for the purist in your life, TGJ is the perfect pick for superb reading material, best-in-the-golf-media photography, and of course, as a coffee table adornment that signals your aesthetic sensibilities are as high as your appreciation for our maddening game.

Buy here.

National Custom Works custom forged irons – Varies

Hand-ground from Japanese forgings by the legendary Don White, NCW’s entirely made-to-order blades have quickly become the purist’s gold — or steel — standard. And they’re not just for show; these things perform, as evidenced by Jason Dufner putting a set in play in 2018.
