What PING putter is this?


Recommended Posts

Looks like a Tess. Probably custom or JAS model.

JAS Tess models show up on eBay for about $150 from time to time.

Ping customer service is very cool too. Call them on Monday and they will know.

Thanks, my friend! Only problem being that I live in the UK... but I have my sources, so I'll try and snag one somehow.

My pleasure. The lines on the back do look a bit different on the one you posted, but I bet the JAS Tess would play similar.

 

Here is the link for the Ping contact form. Maybe it will work in the UK and they can help with the search. Good luck!

We had a JAS Tess at the store for a while. I think It looked a bit different. It had weights in toe and heel. A great putter though.

That is why I thought this one might be tour/ PingWRX only. I think that the tungsten weights show up on the back side as well as on the face.

The other problem you'll have is the tour van guys sometimes grind the flange, add weight, sight lines (or remove them), etc.

That's really slick looking; love it!

 

I didn't say anything about that to the original poster, but I don't know what's to love; their isn't much to it. But, with putters, beauty is truly a subjective thing.

There's isn't much to it, you're right... which is why I love it! In a market that seems to be saturated with silly, over the top designs from companies like Odyssey, Nike and PING themselves, it's these classic shapes that I still crave!

I feel you. But most of us suck at putting so they are truly just trying to help. LOL.
