Sigma G, the latest putter family from Ping, utilizes a couple of materials in an effort to improve roll and feel, beginning with a clubface that is made of aerospace-grade aluminum and backed by an elastomer commonly employed in the soles of athletic shoes and known for being lightweight – and being able to deliver what company officials describe as a high-energy return.
A refined groove system is also crafted to boost forgiveness, thanks mostly to larger face-insert cavities that enable engineers to redistribute weight to the perimeter. And more optimally placed center-of-gravity positions are made to reduce skid and initiate forward roll more easily.
“The Sigma G putters represent an exciting new technology that continues our longstanding commitment to engineering putters that look and feel great but perform even better,” says John A. Solheim, Ping’s chairman and chief executive officer. “The combination of the high-grade elastomer and fully machined aerospace-grade aluminum over the entire face delivers an amazing feel and sound. And with improved ball-speed consistency and forgiveness, golfers will make more putts than ever.”
According to Solheim, a total of 16 models are available in the new Sigma G line, and those offerings include a variety of blades, mid-mallets and mallets, some of which are modernized versions of longstanding Ping offerings and others entirely new designs.
