Photos of new PING putters have been filtering out since the Masters when Lee Westwood and Louis Oosthuizen used "EyeMark" prototype mallets for the first time.

It's unclear if either mallet was used in the design of the Vault Series putters. One thing that is certain is PING has new models on the way.

On Monday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, the company debuted four models — Anser 2, Voss, Oslo and Bergen — to TOUR players for testing.

Although PING wouldn't comment on the designs, it's safe to assume the putters are milled, judging from the face and mill marks on the body. The EyeMark logo that was present on the putters made for Westwood and Oosthuizen is also visible on the heel.

Another new addition is a milled pattern on the face that looks decidedly different from the True-Roll (TR) face technology that's been used on recent PING putter offerings.

The variable depth grooves — with the deepest grooves in the center and getting gradually shallower toward the perimeter to equalize ball speed — improved distance control on center-hit and mis-hit putts off the heel or toe. It's not yet known if the new face design serves a similar purpose.

The company also rolled out a new oversized pistol grip on each putter that will likely come on the retail version when it's released to consumers. See the full gallery of the new putters below.

Not a bad looking tool. I'm sure it work quite well for some golfers.

    • I’d like to see this evaluation done with the Mevo+. I’d like to know how the horizontal launch angle and spin axis compares to GC4. I do know that for the regular Mevo, the data I get hitting into my net is very similar to what I see in lessons with GC4. Hopefully they get to it at some point. One thing about TXG guys is that I can’t tell how sincere they are - don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the content they create, and watch many of their reviews, but I haven’t ever seen them outright say something sucks, which makes me a touch skeptical of their motives.
    • I thought I heard them say that they'd be doing more launch monitors. I'd guess Mevo will be one of them - if I heard correctly.
    • Day 346 Superspeed workout. Just sticking with protocol 2 until January when the TST superspeed accountability/progress group kicks off. Also did some tempo drills while getting warm for the superspeed stuff. 
    • Day 75 - More swings inside, really focused on the first part of my takeaway.
    • They did do this in an episode, and I believe Mike shot -2, the differential was like 1.9 though. One thing that was brought up to them by a playing partner was it's one thing to carry a 0.0 handicap at a home course, but another thing entirely to do it at a larger group of courses. They said "that makes sense" "good idea" etc., but did not stick to that plan either.
