CLASSIC BRONZE ANSER PUTTER
The original concept for the Anser putter was sketched on a 78-rpm record sleeve by PING founder Karsten Solheim in early 1966. It was patented the next year. The Anser hosel helps golfers set their hands in the proper putting position and. The name was inspired by his desire to find an “answer” to the popular putter at the time. His wife, Louise, suggested he call it “Answer” but Karsten was concerned it was too long to fit on the toe. She told him to leave out the “w” and the rest is history.
Its first win came in 1966 at the Florida Citrus Open. It went on to become the winningest (and most copied) putter model in golf, with more than 600 tour titles to its credit, including 19 men’s major championships. The Anser’s first major victory was at the 1969 Masters.
