PING was founded by Karsten Solheim in 1959 as the result of Mr. Solheim's disgust with his own putting. He began developing a putter that made a distinctive "ping" sound when it struck the ball. Now known worldwide as a leading golf club manufacturer, PING continues to develop new technologies in putters, irons, drivers and fairway metal clubs to improve golf games everywhere.
