Is it so easy to make a metal golf club (putter and other gulf play parts) using 3d printers? If your answer is no then you are probably wrong. PING is an American manufacturer of golf equipment which was founded in 1959. PING director of engineering revealed that idea of making metal golf club using a 3d printer begin from his employee who has experience in 3d printing.

The reason behind using 3d printing technology is so simple; 3d printing is not a complicated one, or rocket science to use, it’s so simple if we follow the basics, 3d printes are accurate, time saver compared to the traditional way of making golf club, all these qualities made them decide to go for 3d printing, first of all they printed out a putter using a G25 iron and tested by golf players and you won’t believe that players really couldn’t find any sort of difference between the usual one and 3d printed one.

Eventually this made director wood to proceed further future plan with the 3d printers by printing other essential parts of golf play such as hollow heads, hybrid clubs and many more, to further extent he has planned to deliver golf clubs as per the players requirements. The 3d printer which makes the golf club cost around 1 million and the price for printed parts would be in around $8000, as the printer price is too high at least for now. 3d printing is getting better, familiar and bigger.
