Has The Former VP at Callaway Created the Next Ping Anser?

There are not many putter companies that haven't copied the Ping Anser. It is the most duplicated putter design ever. Which says a lot about both the putter and the designer, Karsten Solheim, who produced the Anser almost 50 years ago!

And there is lots to say about the designer of the new DGD putter line as well...Dick DeLaCruz...time will have tell though if his new putters will create as much of a following as Solheim's creation did. Although...if an individuals knowledge...experience...and expertise has anything to do with then Dick DeLaCruz might just have the next Anser on his hands. That is because DeLaCruz has always been an 'innovator' not a 'creator' in the golf club design industry.

Don't Confuse Creativity with Innovation

You see golfers often confuse creativity with innovation...what I am referring to is in regards to putter designs. Every year there are hundreds of creative putter designs that get released to the public...but very few are truly innovative. Especially in the mallet category...where you see the most creative designs but few actually perform any better then their predecessors. And even fewer do in the blade category...blades have actually not evolved all that much in regards to technology since the Anser.

The DGD "Sweet Slot" Putter Hopes To Change All That

One of many reasons the Ping Anser became famous was because the noise it made when people putted with it...the famous P-I-N-G-G-G-G-G. I am sure you are familiar so I wont go into too much detail but this sound was created by a slot cut into the bottom of the putter creating a "tuning" effect when the ball struck the face. And has since been replicated by almost every major putter manufacturer.

But, DeLaCruz in our opinion has made the first true improvement on the technology since its inception. They call it the "Sweet Slot" instead of Ping's "Sound Slot" which makes perfect since after you putt with one of the DeLaCruz masterpieces.

Never Mis-Hit Another Putt

Much like a musical instrument..when a wrong chord or string is struck you get a different sound then when the correct chord is strung. That is the principle behind these sleek and innovative putter designs...strike it too high, too low, too much too the left, or right and you will get a different sound then when struck on the sweet spot. The sound of the putter tells you exactly what you are doing wrong.

Only The Beginning at DGDgolf.com

And this is only the beginning...because the DeLaCruz putters are packed with all kinds of other innovations.

  • Face - Ground w/Tool Room Grinder. Then (28) super fine score lines are machined to produce an optimal spin rate on greens
  • Neck - is seperate piece which is vacuum welded to allow for infinite assembly opportunities.
  • Finish - A black "Scratch Proof" finish...like never seen before. And also a Stainless Velvet Finish as well.
  • Made - Made in the USA...not many of those left.
  • and many more

A Must Have For The Putter Collector

If you are a putter collector like we are then you already know Dick DeLaCruz has produced some great ones in his career...and his new masterpiece is no different. The man just continues to push the envelope with every design he does...he finds a way to combine form and function in a way that is always one step ahead of the field. And you could get one FREE...just remember to leave your testimonial ;)

I’d really like to give one of these a try. Sounds like an interesting idea that could really help make things a little easier on the green. And is it just me or is that black cavity back C-2 a work of art.? That thing looks awesome.

I really like the design of the Delacruz putters. I love the position of the sound slot. I have ha dputters with the sound slot and the position was different than were this putter is located. I would definitely love to give one of these a try and see how they stack up against my Slighter putter that I am currently playing.

Delacruz has created some great looking putters and if they keep this up then their future is looking bright! Keep up the good work!

Mr. DeLaCruz does not play around. I started putting with his putters in the mid 90′s and I am so excited to see he is still going strong. Cant wait to try one of these.

Phil October 15, 2008 at 8:51 am

This sounds really interesting (ba dum tshhh). I am very much an aural learner. I can’t feel the more settle mis-hits with my putter, so I’m curious how I’d adjust to hearing a mis-hit.

I only know of Dick from the previous article about the first CNC milled putter, but have become a fan (I was actually looking for one of his Cobra models after that article). And these putters look gorgeous!

Pedro October 15, 2008 at 9:17 am

Very sleek looking design. One that I know my golf buddies will want to look at, gawk at, hold, touch… and I would be more than honored to play with this putter.

Jeff M October 15, 2008 at 9:21 am

It looks like he has a winner. Audio feedback is such a large part of putting than many do not understand. The clean look of the putter also will appeal to traditionalists that are not on the market for some of these new high MOI putters, put are having trouble finding a new and innovative traditional putter.

JGL October 15, 2008 at 10:15 am

I believe these putters are going to become very popular in the golf world. There is a sleek and clean look to them, very attractive! From what I see and heard these come from a company which has alot of experience in the golf industry and there main focus is putters! The reason these putters attract me is because all the new putter companies that come out, bring these weird shaped, gimic pron putters, with Delacruz putters they have focused on traditional looking putter heads such as the Answer model and a Blade type head. It is funny you see alot of the tour pros that have had putting woes in the past (Sergio Garcia, Vijay Singh) just to name a few, they have all went back to old school putters! I am very excited to get one of these in my hands!!!

I putted with an Original Anser with the “slot” for the first 5 plus years I played Golf. Everytime I went to another putter I missed the sound/ feel (I’ve always felt they go together). I finally found a putter that I liked almost as much in my CameronAnser (Mil-Spec). The only thing that has been missing from this putter is the “slot” and a Black finish. The C-2 or the C-4 look to have the best of it all… Can’t wait to try one.

These putters look phenomenal. If the different sound pitches help me avoid three-putting then I am all for it. I am not a fan of the huge putters with all the technology and innovation. These putters have a nice blend of technology and a clean, classic look that fits my style.

Casey October 15, 2008 at 1:06 pm

This putter is a pleasure to use as it please 3 out of 5 senses. It is a beautiful putter to start and feels amazing when you hit it. The most amazing thing about this putter is that when you hit it just right the sound is such a great tone. Great feedback to the senses and a pleasure to play.

Tony October 15, 2008 at 2:16 pm

Audio feedback is so important when putting. I think it would be great if mygolfspy could post an audio clip on how the putter sounds when it strikes a ball.

The putter looks awesome!

This putter looks like it has some of the best of several models.

It has the lines of an Anser but a bit more round.

I like the finish and like the sight lines even more!

I’ve been eyeing this putter for a while and really think it has something going in the way of advancing putters. The sweet slot just “makes sense.” On top of that, it is an AWESOME looking putter. Just beautiful.

Phenomenal looking putter!! I am a sucker for the black finish but the quality and technology of the putter is something in itself. Any putter that is made the way this one is is an automatic plus in confidence for any putter; thats before you even use the thing!! for anyone that doesn’t win this putter go out and try one or buy one!!

I want to be honest I never used or even seen a Delacruz putter in person. what stands out to me is the unique style of the neck, also the way the cavity is cut out shorter then what appears to be the sound slot. i would really like to give it a try against my SC Santa Fe style and my many other Newport style putters.Putters are really the most personal club in the bag and this truly is one of the original changes I’ve seen in quite some time! I would be thrilled to give this putter a chance to make my bag! Thanks, Tim

I like the elegant look of the design. The putter has a look that you just want to grab one and try it.

I firmly believe the sound will be liked by many players. After all, the drivers today have a sound that is appealing to amateur golfers and pros too.

The truth is this: I want this putter to help me with my game. If I can putt well with a De La Cruz Putter, I can sell the benefits to my students to get one for them. As a teaching professional, I have recommended training-aides, golf clubs, balls, gloves, club-fitting, and wedges. And my students do buy what I recommend. I don’t receive a commission from any vendor. My business is made up helping people play better golf. And, as a profession golf instructor, I need to be abreast of all new products on the market.

I think the OEM

All of the DeLa Cruz designs have always been a step beyond their time. Timeless looks but with innovative design and technology built in. These would surely fill the number one spot in my bag. If looks, reputation, and a new design are what you desire, look no further.

I think the idea is flawless and I would love to be able to say that I would purchase one, but unfortunately my life circumstances do not allow that right now. I would love to try it out and eventually get one if it works for me. I really like the idea of the sound that the putter makes if it is a good or a bad putt. Truly Genius

Jason Doughty October 31, 2008 at 1:14 pm

“Sounds” like a great putter. :-) Seriously, though. It looks great and appears that it would be a great way to ensure hitting the ball squarely with the face of the putter. Would love to try one!
