Ping Sigma G Tyne Putter Review: You should know
The Tyne’s fanged back spreads mass and increases MOI performance. It’s a favourite of Lee Westwood. A milled aluminium face insert has variable depth and width grooves to deliver consistent ball speed performance across the face, which Ping says helps reduce your 3-putt potential. Feel’s enhanced by a high-energy elastomer insert behind the face.
Ping Sigma G Tyne Putter Review: We say
A lovely stretched prong design with a really simple, clean look at address. We loved how the prongs show the heads path away from the ball, and how the single sightline really focuses attention on your intended impact location. One tester felt how the topline flows into the back really encouraged him to hit “up” on putts meaning the Tyne rolled putts beautifully.
There’s nothing flash or fussy about the Tyne, so we reckon its well suited to golfers who like simple designs and probably find some of the other leading MOI models too distracting. For golfers with slightly arcing strokes there’s also a “H” (hosel) model which doesn’t have a double bend shaft.
Ping Sigma G Tyne Putter Review: Verdict
Ping have huge pedigree when it comes to putters, and because the Tyne can already be found amongst other winning models in Ping’s gold putter vault it’s highly likely to be around for some time to come. A very solid, stable and unfussy MOI putter. If you’re in the business of making sure you get the most out of any new purchase it’s well worth taking Ping up on the offer of custom fitting.
