Plumber’s neck putters have been a staple ingredient in the bags of PGA tour players for over 50 years. The reason for this is pretty simple. The plumbing neck style makes it very easy to align the head of the putter behind the ball, the built-in offset helps keep your hands ahead of the ball, and the moderate to hang works very well with an ‘inside-to-inside’ stroke.
And just in case you are wondering, the answer is yes, Tiger Woods does use a plumber’s neck style putter.
Now it’s time to reveal some of the best plumber’s neck putters currently available.

Best Ping Plumber's Neck Putters
PING Heppler Anser 2 Putter
Bearing the same heel-toe weighting that helped make the original Anser 2 so popular, the Heppler version also shares the original’s angled heel ballast. The all-steel Heppler Anser 2 stands apart with color blocking that creates its own eye-pleasing alignment assistance. The Ping Heppler Anser 2 is built with a classic plumber’s neck design, while the black and brown color combination gives this putter a very distinct look.
PING Sigma 2 Wolverine H Putter
To promote consistency, the Ping Sigma 2 Wolverine H putter is built with a heavier 370-gram mallet head, which provides a very high moment of inertia for extreme forgiveness, especially on shorter putts. The mid-hang balance ensures better all-around performance for a wider range of golfers.
PING 2021 Anser 4 Putter
Designed for players who love the classic look and feel of the Anser-style putter and benefit from a strong-arc model. With heel-toe tungsten weighting for forgiveness and slight variations in its longer, narrower profile and sharper corners.
PING 2021 Oslo H Putter
A long, clean alignment line, thicker top rail, and soft ballasting focus the eye for easier alignment. The Anser-style plumber’s neck hosel fits a slight arc stroke, and the stainless steel body and aluminum sole plate increase the perimeter weighting to elevate forgiveness.
PING 2021 DS 72 Putter
The PING 2021 DS 72 is a mid-mallet that utilizes a steel weight in the heel and tungsten in the toe to stabilize the head and create high forgiveness, and the clean lines with perpendicular and parallel visual cues combine to simplify alignment. The classic Anser-style hosel promotes a slight rotation.
Scotty Cameron Plumber's Neck Putters
Scotty Cameron Special Select Newport 2 Putter
Evolving the curvy, compact setup of this classic blade design, the Special Select Newport is crafted from solid milled 303 stainless steel without an insert and with new performance balanced tungsten sole weighting for a larger sweet spot and increased stability. The revamped plumbing neck allows for better alignment and setup with freer visual access to the flatter, narrower topline, while a new, cascading concave second tier knocks down reflection and provides a “melt-into-the-ground” appearance at address.
Scotty Cameron Special Select Squareback 2 Putter
Preferred by players looking for the crisp, alignment-promoting setup of a Newport 2, but in a wider-bodied, more forgiving mid-mallet configuration, the Special Select Squareback 2 joins the line with a completely redesigned plumbing neck, a solid milled putter head and the racy, sleek lines of its Newport 2 cousin, including a thinner topline and slightly more compact face height.
Scotty Cameron Special Select Fastback 2 Putter
In 2018, Scotty Cameron released an updated version of the Fastback model, and after its introduction on the worldwide professional golf tours, players requested one option—a plumbing neck. The familiar, confidence-inspiring setup, which provides one shaft of offset, has been incorporated into this rounded mid-mallet. In addition to the new neck, subtle refinements have been made to the topline dimensions for a slightly thinner look, as well as a reduction of face height.

Odyssey’s Triple Track Putters are developed from Callaway’s popular golf ball line, with three lines that are prominently featured at the center of the putter head.
