Ping released an entire new line of golf clubs this year from the Driver down to the putter. The GLe2 clubs are a beautiful set of highly engineered Pin golf clubs, and the new line of putter is very nice. The problem with any new putter is the pricing. The Women’s Ping G Le2 Putters come in a few different models and retail for $199.
We know $199 is a lot, and we have some cheaper alternatives to help you out. Before we get to that, we need to give you our two cents on why you should not be worried about spending a little extra on a putter. People seem to have no problem spending $300-$400 on a driver, but anytime a putter goes over the $100 mark, everybody wants to complain. Just pause for a second and think about how often you use your putter. Think about how important that putter is to your score. Think about where you would be if you didn’t have a putter in your golf bag. Next time you question if a putter is worth the money, at least try to keep these things in mind.
Who Should Buy the Ping G2Le Shea Putter?
If you are looking for an incredible feel in a putter, the Ping putters are always a great choice. The G2Le Shea putter is a mallet shape design that gives it incredible aiming technology and also allows for better distance control. The Women’s Ping G Le2 Putter has a dual-durometer face insert that gives the putter an incredibly soft feel but plenty of stability. Stability and control are so significant with a putter because any type of movement or wiggle at impact will cause you to miss the hole.
An exciting feature on the G Le2 putter that probably contributes to the cost of this putter is that it is adjustable in length. You can change the length on this putter from 31 inches to 35 inches. We love this feature. The majority of golfers are playing with a putter that is way too long for them. Just because a club is sold at 33, 34, or 35 inches does not mean that it is the correct size for you. The ability to adjust the shaft down to 31 inches without having to get the club cut down and new grip put on is a tremendous and valuable benefit.
The grip on the G Le2 putter is a midsize grip. Midsize and jumbo grips have become a lot more popular in recent years because they allow for less hand action and encourage players to incorporate their larger muscles in their putting stroke.
If you have been struggling with your putting and feel as though your feel an alignment could be better, the G Le2 is an excellent choice. We also love this option if you have been wondering if your putter may be too long for you. The ability to adjust any golf club is such a great selling point.
If $199 is more than you want to spend on a putter, we can understand. If you are looking for a mallet type design similar to this, one option to look at is the Wilson Staff Grant Park Black putter. Yes, we know that Wilson Staff and Ping don’t always fall into the same category, but this is an excellent $99.00 putter that could help your golf game. The Wilson Staff putter is not built specifically for women, but that will not matter so much. Just make sure to purchase the correct length or have it cut to size after purchasing.
This putter features counter-balanced technology and a double milled face. If you want consistent roll and distance control, you will find it with the Wilson Staff Infinite. We think the Ping wins when it comes to alignment with this putter. Ping may also pull ahead a bit when it comes to soft feel, but the Wilson Staff does feel very stable. If you tend to twist the club at impact, the Grant Park Wilson Staff putter will help you to control that a bit.
The finish on the Wilson Staff putter is an ultra-dark PVD that will help to reduce glare. It is a nice looking putter, and the finish is strong enough to hold up over time and should not chip. When it comes to finding the right putter for you, so much of it is about feel and look that it is hard to honestly say if this putter is better or worse for you than the G Le2. The one thing that we can say for sure is that you would not be disappointed with the Ping G Le2 putter should you purchase it. Only the best of players will likely feel the difference between the G Le2 putter and a cheaper model.
