Ping Sigma 2 Tyne 4 – Review

A little background
Let’s just start with this:  I am not a stellar putter.  I’m not even an average putter.  I’ve been known to be the ‘take a 6 footer for birdie and turn it into a 7 footer for par’ kind of putter.  I’d like to think part of it is due to the wide variation in greens I get to play on (anything from Plinko on the Price is Right to lightning fast U.S. Open greens), but the reality is I just haven’t been that good.  I’m a dad with limited income to spend on golf and little practice time.
I started this journey to become a Scratch golfer about two years ago.  Since then, I won a free full bag fitting through Club Champion and had a blast doing it.  My favorite part of the whole experience was the SAM PuttLab fitting.  According to the PuttLab, I’m a consistent slight puller of the putter.  My wonderful human of a fitter recommended mallet style with some toe hang.  He laid out a bunch of putters that fit this mold and I immediately started arching the putter rather than pulling it.  I had never really seen that arch path before and I thought I was going to push every putt 3 feet right of the hole.  Needless to say, I made 25 straight 8 foot putts before we re-tested with my favorite putter of the bunch (the Ping Sigma 2 Tyne 4, which also happened to be the cheapest, go figure).
The thing that was instantly attractive about this putter was the fact that it could be adjusted for length.  I’m 5’8”, take an athletic posture with my putter, and have long arms.  Long story short, I need a short putter, but everything you can buy off the rack comes between 33-35” (or so it seems).  We cranked it down to 32.5” and bent the loft to 1 degree.  Oh……….my…………GAWD!!!  I’m in love, I’m in love, and I don’t care who knows it!!!
Eye Candy (aka Looks)
First off the looks.  This think is a beauty! 
Ping_back_resize10.jpg.0873808a8ba25d4e0755e1a8a9100d50.jpg
I love the tynes off the back, makes me think of a fighter jet’s wings.  Who doesn’t love fighter jets?!?  As an added bonus, they are very useful when picking the ball up after you just lagged that 40 footer to inside of 1 foot!

Grip
The stock pistol grip is phenomenal as well.  It really helps me to get my thumbs on top of the grip and parallel to each other.

Insert:
People seem to either love or hate insert putters.  I get it, there is soft and then there is too soft.  Not many people want to feel like they are hitting the golf ball with a marshmallow attached to a shaft.  The dual insert on the Ping Sigma 2 putter line is perfect for me.  Soft enough to feel good at impact, but not soft enough to make you question if you hit it hard enough.
PingFace.jpg.269bc99fc5de6b9301c60dcc23eba659.jpg
 
Overall:
I absolutely enjoy putting practice now!  Get this, you ready for it?  I’ve taken nothing but my putter to the golf course and spent over 1hr putting with my kids!?!  Crazy right? Who does that???  Not a single driver, iron, or wedge hit.  Pure putting. That’s how much I love this putter and how much confidence it gives me.
I’ve only had two rounds with it, but I’ve had 30 and 31 putts with it so far.  Both of those rounds had at least 3 putts that either lipped out or stopped within 1” of the hole.  Only one 3-putt (and that was on a 60 foot putt, all of my playing partners 3-putted that horrible green lol).  From 5-8 feet, I feel like it is going in all the time.
Had I the foresight to know that I would be joining MGS, I would have taken stats with my previous putters (yeah, I’m the guy who had like 7 putters all on the bench ready to get in the game whenever the starter started 3-putting) and run an ANOVA on putting metrics to see if this new putter is significantly better or if it is all in my head.  I have since sold those putters and am on the road to a single putter relationship.  You have to give this putter a try if you like the looks of a mallet style fang putter.  It also scored well this year and the previous model as well last year in the MSG putter tests.
Give this thing a look!!!!  I think I’m going to go roll some putts on my carpet!!!

Very nice!  Glad you found a putter that you like and works well.  I did the same thing a couple of years ago, and I ended up with the Ping Sigma G Doon that I was fitted for at Ping HQ.  It's by far the best putter I have ever had.

While I’ll say that a properly fitted putter will be better for the golfer than one that looks good to them, if you can match both looks with function, you’ve got a winner!

Thanks for the insight. I fell in love with this putter when PING released it but it didn’t really work well when I tried rolling it.

I’m glad you found a winner and wish you the best in your pursuit to become a better player.

Great mini review, thx. I'm happy with the putter I have now (full milled, no insert) but you have inspired me to get a putter fitting to see if maybe loft or lie could be tweaked (also been meaning to get my irons checked so now I "have to" 😉 go!).

I enjoyed your review. You keep chiming in like this you, just might be considered for something  official before the year is over 😉

Absolutely!! Make sure the loft and lie are what you need. Manufacturer tolerances do have a range, so just because it says 3* or whatever and lie 71* does not mean it is spot on.

Thanks! Your example is a perfect explanation of MSG’s entire testing process. Just because a putter looks good to a player does not mean it is the best thing for them.

PING Apologist: APPORVED!!! Enjoyed the mini-review and am glad you landed on something that has increased your enjoyment of the game. I've been picking these up and trying them myself and like them a lot-especially the looks. But, the shop I frequent also has a S2 Fetch which I wasn't immediately attracted to on looks alone, but , DAMN! I love how that one feels and performs too! Tried it over & over against the Tyne, Valor 400 and several Scotties they had in the same rack and just kept coming back to it. Gotta somehow get it in my hands permanently!

Roll 'em true out there!

Thanks for the kind words. I do agree (and so does MGS) that it is a great putter. Try to find one used if you can. They are already priced well below the competition. Finding one for under $125 would be a steal!!

During my commitment to a full season of all PING clubs, the putter is whst i was worried about most.  As i have had my SC X7M for almost 4 years.  Yes CG2 had a club in thd bag fir more than 5 minutes.  Ha

But during my fitting for PING i was immediately relieved after about 4 rolls with the Tyne 4.  

I havent lost a beat with it.

      Perfect Practice Putting Mat Review
      By Chasing Scratch
       
      If you’re like me, you need to practice your putting……. A lot…… I mean take the time you want to practice each month, multiply it by 10, then add 10 hours to that.  Let’s face it, of all the skills in the game of golf, putting is something many of us amateurs tend to practice the least.  When was the last time you heard people at the course talking ‘bout “Man I spent 5 hours last week on my putting, and I just can’t get enough!”  The putter is hit more times in a single round than any other club yet we have this avoidance affair with it.  We’ll smash driver for hours on the range, look at the watch, and give 5 minutes to putting.

      I’m guilty of this myself.  As someone who knows I need to practice my putting more, it’s just not that much fun.  It’s also not very convenient for me.  The closest course to my home is 25 minutes away.  50 minutes in the car is a large commitment for me just to practice putting several days per week.

      So given my goal of scratch golf, my knowledge of statistics, and my passion for improvement, I started looking into “at home” putting training aids.  I searched around on the internet for everything from putting mats, auto-return systems, and DIY putting platform building guides. 

      I liked a few of the products just fine and was narrowing down my options to a few of the mats.  I know several had great reviews and even skill-type-games you can play, but I just couldn’t get over not having the ball fall into a cup.  There is something satisfying about seeing the golf ball fall into a hole and disappear.  So I started to plan out a putting platform build.  I had the specs and was all set to go to the store and spend a few days knocking it out.

      Literally the night before I was going to go to the store, I stumbled upon a page on Instagram called “Perfect Practice Golf” and saw their putting mat.  They had a giveaway contest going on for the PGA Championship so I threw my name in for the drawing.  I decided to wait and see if I got lucky before I built my platform and (wouldn’t you know it!)  I won!  So I decided to hold off on building a platform to see if this thing was any good.

      Their Instagram page showed quite a few PGA Tour players (e.g., Tony Finau, Marc Leishman, Smiley Kaufman, see their quotes below) who were using their putting mat so I figured it would be good enough for me.


      Quality and features

      When it arrived, the first thing I noticed was that the actual putting carpet was top notch.  I’m sure you’ve all seen the putting mats you can buy at the big box stores and the carpet they come with looks like something that is made out of cardboard.  You have to lay encyclopedias on it and even then you may have some creases, it never lays flat, etc.  Straight out of the box, this thing unrolled and lay flat.  You could literally start putting on it right out the box!

      The actual material feels a lot like velour (that's the best way I can describe it although it is not a perfect description).  They call it “crystal velvet,” but all I know is it is a very pure rolling surface.  A plus is that you can vacuum it as well.

      On that mat, you’ll find printed markings for every foot and smaller marks for every inch (it looks like a giant ruler).  You also have two alignment lines (one for the regular sized hole and one for the mini-hole).  As a golfer who struggles with “seeing the line” over my putts, the alignment line really helps.


      The mat also features an incline up to the holes, to ensure a confident stroke and to assist with the gravity-fed ball return system.  On their first version, the base and return ramp were made out of plastic.  It had a good weight to it and I had no complaints.  On their newest model, they made some upgrades to the base material.  Namely, it is now made of wood instead of plastic, there is an insert-able backstop to catch putts hit with too much gusto, extra space behind the holes to catch balls, and the return ramp has magnets to connect the pieces.  Each of these upgrade adds much more “high quality” feel to the overall product.  They did not change the crystal velvet putting surface, and in my opinion they didn’t need to.  It’s great as is.


      With the original version, my kids had a tendency to hit the ball past the holes and off the mat.  They were more than happy to chase the balls down the hallway, but it was a bit of an oversight in the original design.  This has been fixed in the newest version.  It would take a freaking missile launch of a putt to blast it off the mat now.

      For the price, I’d be hard pressed to find a better putting training aid.  At just over $100, you get a high quality putting surface and the mental boost of seeing a ball fall into a hole over and over and over again.  You can roll it up, stick it under your bed, and putt every single day, rain or shine, all from the comfort of your home. 

      This thing rolls fast and true.  They claim it rolls up to a 14 on the stimp if you put it on hard floors (think wood floors or concrete), and you can slow it down by putting it on carpet.  When I put it on my bedroom carpet, it is noticeably slower than when it is on the tile floor.

      If I were to have a critique, it would be that I wish the mat were just about a 1/4 inch thicker.  I have tile floor in my home and carpet in the bed rooms.  When putting on the tile floor, you can get a bump here or there (due to the gaps in the tiles and grout).  I fixed this by using some runner rugs we have in the hallway and I typically just put them under the mat.  I can’t be too critical, because I know that adding more thickness would increase the price, add to shipping, etc.  Overall it is a solid putting mat well worth the price.  I have hit hundreds of putts on the original model and the newest model and have yet to notice any depressions or grooves in the surface.  I know this is a concern for any putting mat, but so far so good on this one.

      Performance on the course

      For the first few weeks that I had the original Perfect Practice Golf putting mat, I couldn’t get enough of it.  My kids and I would spend hours throughout the day hitting 4 footers, 6 footers, 8 footers, etc.  We even came up with a trick shot and had a blast doing it (see video below)!

      My son and I came up with other putting games to play on it to keep it fun.  My on the course putting showed definite improvement as well!  I rarely had less than 35 putts per round before and quite often a few three putts.  When I was putting consistently with the Perfect Practice mat, I didn’t have a round over 32 putts.  Those pesky 6-7 foot par save putts were falling with much more consistency.  I felt like I had a real chance to hole everything inside of 10 feet.  Seeing the ball fall into a hole over and over and over while practicing at home is such a mental boost for my game.
      I haven’t played golf in over a month, much less practiced on my mat (life just got very very crazy in the Chasing Scratch home).  I want to make myself a personal goal of hitting 50 putts per day to see how good I can get.  Since I have a solid mat in the comfort of my own home, there really is no excuse.  If I want to get to scratch golf, I need to get those putts per round down to 30 or under consistently.  The only way to get better is to practice.  I’ve got a great practice aid to do it, now I just need the determination and dedication.
      At $130, I don’t think you can go wrong with this training aid.  The upgrades are a nice improvement over the original version, and the putting surface is top notch.  Take a look at their webpage (click here) and consider the Perfect Practice Golf mat if you are in the market for a putting setup for the home, office, or wherever really.  They sell out quickly when they get their shipments in, so they are on pre-order right now.
      I hope you enjoyed this review!  Now I’m off to go work on my putting!

      I'm getting rid of my seemore pure center blade putter I've owned for 2 years (purchased summer 2017). I am asking $120 OBO including shipping. If I don't have a lot of interest it will go on eBay. 
      Putter is in near mint condition. See actual photos of the putter below. Has additional weighting in the head as well as counterbalancing in the grip, length is 34.5".
      Paypal is my preferred payment method.
      Directly below is a list of the complete specs on the putter when I ordered it. Thanks for looking!

      Driver: Thank you MGS, flat out the best driver I have ever had in the bag.
      3W: A random purchase after being unable to hit the original epic 3w. Put same shaft that I was fit for in the epic and it has been a match made in heaven. Absolute money from the tee and I know exactly what it will do from the fairway. Combined with the driver there are not many par 5's that I can't reach. 
      5W: Solid club but this spot has always been a trouble spot in my bag and that hasn't changed in 20 years. 
      Irons: Love the combo and they feel absolutely amazing. All of them are 1* strong, standard lie and +1/2" Biggest thing I was looking for in making the change was more control. They definitely fly different than P790's but hopefully after an adjustment period they will meet or exceed my expectations. 
      Wedges: A different look from what I am used to but feel is amazing. The shaft on full swings is so easy for me to deliver correctly. 
      Putter: Not a fast revolving door but one that moves some. Have gotten used to the look of the center shaft but still struggling with alignment some. 
      Ball: Titleist PROV1X #23 imprinted with THEZIPR in blue. Have played this ball since its birth and while I have tried many other options nothing has been able to kick it out. 
      Rangefinder: Bushnell PRO X2 
      Glove: Footjoy Weathersof. Love the Ping tour glove but at the rate I go through gloves I just can't justify the price difference.
      Shoes: Ecco Biom G 3 BOA and Biom Hybrid 3 BOA. Most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.
