Ping's limited gold-plated PLD Anser Patent 55 putter is limited to 55 pieces.

It’s only fitting that Ping’s final limited-edition PLD Anser Patent 55 putter is made of gold.

Since the 1970s, Ping has commemorated every Tour victory with a gold replica of the putter. More than 3,200 gold wands sit in Ping’s world-renowned Gold Putter Vault for safe keeping — a reminder of the company’s dominance in the putter space. In particular, the historic Anser design.

As a tribute to the Anser’s historic track record (more than 700 wins), Ping has created a gold-plated PLD Anser Patent 55 for the final putter release of the year.

The putter will be available via pingpld.com for $990 Ping

Only 55 serialized putters will be made available on pingpld.com on Dec. 12 for $990 (limit one per customer). Each head is fully milled from stainless-steel and finished in a gold plating.

“I can’t think of a better way to complete this wonderful celebration of the Anser putter and its game-changing patent,” said Ping executive chairman John A. Solheim. “Our tradition of awarding gold-plated PING putters to tournament champions has arguably created the most valuable collection of putters in the world. It’s a great source of pride for us, and golfers who have a chance to visit the Vault stand in amazement as they soak in its place in history. The Anser putter occupies the most space by far in the Vault, so it’s only natural we’d offer a gold-plated version to complete the PLD Limited collection.”

If the first three PLD Anser Patent 55 releases are any indication, this gold-plated version won’t last long. In other words, don’t give it a second thought if you want to scoop one up.
