The Cut : The Cut - Winter 2016
GOLF & LEISURE 63 SIX GOLDEN MOMENTS JUST SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS WE FOUND IN PING’S PUTTER VAULT TIGER WOODS Tiger won his third US Amateur Championship in 1995 using an Anser 2. Ping sees the title as important enough to deserve a gold putter. LOUIS OOSTHUIZEN His albatross with this S56 4-iron on the second hole at the 2012 Masters (from 253 yards!) was one of the best shots ever at Augusta. SUZANN PETTERSEN The most expensive putter in the vault is the Doc 15 that Pettersen used to win the LPGA Championship in 2007... it’s worth $30,000. BUBBA WATSON Ping plated the 52° Tour-W wedge Watson used to hit a miraculous 140-yard (128m) hook from the pine straw to win his first Masters in 2012. JOHN DALY One legend, along with Nick Faldo, Greg Norman, Tom Watson, Payne Stewart and Lee Trevino, in the vault with at least one major title. SEVE BALLESTEROS He’s got 46 putters in the vault for tour, major and Ryder Cup victories. The Anser is the commonest model, with 33 majors to its name.
