Ping’s limited-edition PLD Anser celebrates Seve Ballesteros’ 1988 victory

The fourth and final putter in the Ping Slam Limited Edition family will be made available on Tuesday, July 18, 2023, and it commemorates Seve Ballesteros’s 1988 British Open victory.

In 1988, each of four men’s professional major championships was won by a player using a Ping putter, an accomplishment that had not been done before and that has not been achieved since. Before the start of the Masters, Ping made 88 special Ping Slam Pal putters available to commemorate Sandy Lyle winning the 1988 Masters. To honor Jeff Sluman’s win at Oak Tree Golf Club, 88 PLD Limited Pal 2 putters with a natural finish were sold, and last month, before the U.S. Open, 88 PLD Limited Zing 2 putters honoring Curtis Strange’s 1988 U.S. Open victory at The Country Club were sold.

“Even though at the time it was the third major of the season, it’s fitting to complete this part of the ‘Ping Slam’ celebration by recognizing Seve’s win at the Open Championship that year,” said John A. Solheim, Ping’s executive chairman in a release. “Seve was our most loyal and accomplished Anser user, earning 47 wins with it, including all five of his major championships. His victories are represented in more than three rows on a rack in the Ping Gold Putter Vault and have helped make the Anser the winningest putter of all time.”

The limited-edition PLD Anser is milled and has been given an antique finish that makes it look like Ballesteros’s tarnished, manganese bronze original Anser. And, like the Spanish Hall of Famer’s putter, this Anser has a floating face, otherwise known as a sound slot, cut into the sole for a crisper feel and sound.

Like the three previous Sing Slam putters, only 88 are being offered, and all of them will be available starting at 2 p.m. ET on Tuesday for $990 on pingpld.com. The three previous Ping Slam putters offered in 2023 sold out in minutes.

On Dec. 5, 2023, Ping will make 35 complete, four-putter sets of the limited-edition PLD putters available for $4,990, and each will come with a custom-designed display unit.
