Ping Tyne G Putter review

What's new? How much does it cost? And how does it perform? Nicola Slater brings you the low down on the Ping Tyne G Putter...
 

The Tyne G is one of four new mallet putters in Ping’s new ‘New Ping Putter’ range. It’s unique and certainly stands out, but how does it perform? I took it out on the course to see.

Ping Tyne G Putter review: NCG Summary

4 star review
NCG SUMMARY

Despite having a hole in it, the Tyne G putter from Ping might be the one to fill the hole in your heart.

With a soft feel off the face providing a great roll, the double bend shaft putter works best for those players with a straighter stroke.

First Impressions

Straight away this has a unique, stand-put design due to the ball pickup cutout feature in the centre of the putter head. Although this may just seem like a ease of use feature it also helps add forgiveness by moving more weight to the perimeter for added stability.

Other than that, the Tyne G very much follows Ping’s current style being all black with the wording and alignment lines in a bright white.

Ping Tyne G Putter review

Ping isn’t always the brand you think of when considering a new putter, and I’m certainly guilty of slightly discarding them in a putting department.

The Ping Tyne G comes with a high-quality feeling cover that is all leather with a fluffy fleece lining. It fastens using magnets which got this review off to a great start.

NCG Review

I got the chance to test this at a couple of different courses. The first being a typical parkland course in the heart of Cumbria. The greens were firm but a tad on the slow side, and I naturally found myself having to swing the putter a little like a driver at times. I hit a couple of comparison putts to see the difference between the Tyne G and my current putter, and the Ping certainly came off a little softer than my Cleveland.

This is due to the new Pebax insert with a shallow milled surround, you can see the insert is actually very small compared to the width of the face. As per the Ping website, they have swayed away from the previously used milled face inserts that have a firmer feel.

The second testing venue was at the Home of Golf, St Andrews on the new course. Again, these greens were very firm but much faster. The Tyne G worked wonders around there with much shorter strokes required.

Due to the single bend shaft this putter is tailored towards those straighter stroke golfers. I would definitely put myself in this category, and I very much enjoyed using it. If however you are someone who requires more toe hang you may be better at looking at some other heads in the range with different hosel options.

Ping has used the all-black design with white detailing a lot over the years with it’s putters. The high contrast between the black and white works great for alignment. The Tyne G offers a trio of white lines for alignment. Two wider lines to frame the golf ball, and a smaller one in the centre. Not everyone lines up the same way, so various lines provide options which I think is great.

In terms of the grip, the putter came with the standard Ping PP58 Black/White Mid Profile grip. This is a thinn rubber grip that has a smooth texture. I would typically opt for something thicker than this, but there is an option to customise this when ordering online.

Overall, I think that the Ping Tyne G is a quality built putter with a great feel off of the face. It unfortunately does come with a hefty price tag for a Ping putter, but if it suits your eye then it is worth the investment.
