    Has PXG sold a club to an amateur? I understand premium pricing and the power of price/quality indication to the consumer. However, these things are priced so out of market its crazy. This guy is a billionaire and I’m not. But I am yet to see anyone not on tour playing these things.

      I’m an amateur and I play PXG irons. Although, they’ve made me so good, I’m thinking about turning pro.
      In all seriousness, we had a demo day at our club last weekend with all the big manufacturers, and PXG was far and away the busiest tent. Personally, the irons are the best I’ve ever played. Are they for everyone? Absolutely not, and not just because of the price. I have a feeling most people on this site, if they really wanted a set, could find a way to scrape the money together. Eat ramen noodles for a summer, take one less vacation this year, or sell one of the kids, these all seem like viable options.

    He only won because he’s playing the best clubs ever made, but he wasn’t playing poorly because of them!

    The driver and fairways have black and chrome colored screws while the irons have all black colored screws. Wonder why?

      The Black screws are much lighter than the tungsten screws which are silver. This allows you to set up your swingweight and also your ball flight. For more info or a fitting of PXG clubs contact Kens Custom Clubs . kens customclub@gmail.com

    Fellas, That 0811X is a sledgehammer! It feels phenomenal! It actually sounds nothing like the 0811. It spins a lot less also so you might want to loft up. Didn’t have the draw bias that everyone is claiming. I had it going pretty straight on track man a few months back at Coyote Springs.

    I read somewhere that Billy has his 3 iron bent weak and his 5 iron bent strong to maintain 4* loft gaps throughout his irons.

    Does anyone know if this is still (actually) the case?

      After I read that you read it I also wondered if it were true. After about three (actually maybe four) hundredths of a second I decided to do something more useful instead.

Why Dustin Johnson has a 64-degree TaylorMade Hi-Toe wedge in his bag

Published

on

A 64-degree wedge, DJ?! But why…

To answer this question, and others about his equipment changes heading into 2018, I recently spoke with Dustin Johnson and his fitter, Keith Sbarbaro (VP of Tour Operations at TaylorMade). Since DJ currently has some unreleased TaylorMade drivers and woods in the bag, we discussed his long-awaited official switch from his Tour Preferred MB 2014 irons into the new P-730 DJ Proto irons, his decision to put in a P-790 3 iron, and his new 64-degree TaylorMade Hi-Toe wedge — a club he plans to use throughout 2018. I also asked if he has any plans to switch out his Fujikura Speeder 661 Evolution 2.0 shaft in the near future.

See what Dustin and his fitter had to say about each of the changes below. Also, if you’re interested in hearing more from DJ, tune into our 19th hole podcast this week where he makes a guest appearance (or listen to the embed below).

The driver shaft

DJ says: “I don’t change driver shafts. I’ve had this shaft since I came out on Tour basically. I just like it.”

Keith says: “We mess around sometimes, but there’s just nothing better for him. And if it’s not broke… So when we do driver testing, we basically just have one variable to deal with.”

P-790 3 iron

DJ says: “I’m probably gonna go 4 thru pitching wedge [this year], then have a P-790 3 iron in the bag too. I got four wedges in the bag now, so I gotta get rid of either the [P-730] 3-iron or the 5 wood.”

Keith says: “He hits the P-790 3-iron about 260 yards, so it fills that yardage gap of his 5 wood.”

P-730 irons

DJ says: “I just got these blades in; they’re prototypes that are more like my Tour Preferreds. [The original DJ protos] were actually raw, but I waited for them to plate it. I’ve always played a chrome iron, and I prefer to look at that. But yea, these are gonna be in the bag (for 2018).”

Keith says: “The original [DJ protos] were milled and raw, and he was spinning them too much. With the chrome plating, he likes em way better.”

64 degree Hi-Toe TaylorMade wedge

DJ says: “I put this 64-degree wedge in play, and the 60-degree Hi-Toe too. I really like them. I just have a different face and grind than the normal ones. I like the more raw finish and can get more spin. The soles sit a bit closer to the ground… I’ve always had to manipulate my technique in the bunker, so the extra loft [on the 64-degree wedge] helps.”

Keith says: “The 64-degree helps because he’s a shut-face player. He’s had to manipulate his wrist to open the face [in the past]. Now, he can use a natural backswing… Rose was liking the 62-degree [Hi-Toe wedge] and was able to spin it so we kinda copied it for Dustin. He was hitting it from 50 yards and spinning it back 10 feet. I compare the Hi-Toe wedge to the Spider putter; it’s the one putter that everyone loved and it’s one of our best putters. This wedge reminds me of the Spider putters in that way. I think it’s the high CG. We could never get [the launch] low with spin because the ball would always shoot up the face. Now it doesn’t. I think it’s the high CG… [the face of his wedge] is more blasted.”
