PXG’s 100 Percent Milled 0311T Wedges Start at $650



Golfers can now purchase the PXG 0311T wedges they’ve been seeing in the bags of PGA Tour players for more than a year, but they better bring their checkbooks. The 100 percent milled wedges sell for $650-800 each.

“I have always wanted to design an entirely milled wedge, but it’s a time-consuming and expensive process,” says PXG’s Senior Designer Mike Nicolette. “With [PXG Founder] Bob Parsons’ support and commitment to exploring new processes and materials, we’ve been able to develop a collection of milled wedges that are nothing short of incredible.”

Making a 0311T Wedge

Unlike PXG’s 0311 wedges, the 0311T wedges are shaped with a CNC milling machine to ensures that “every line, curve and angle are produced to exacting specifications for consistent performance and advanced shot-making,” the company says. The construction process starts with an 11-pound block of forged 8620 carbon steel and takes 4.5 hours per wedge to complete. The benefit is that the process is completely automated, eliminating the inconsistencies of hand-finishing.

“We believe our new milled wedges could very well be the best-performing, most consistent wedges the golf industry has ever known,” Parsons says. “Every detail is held to the highest tolerance on a CNC mill and the finish is smoking hot.”

The 0311T wedges are available from PXG and its network of approved professional club fitters in four different sole designs that were inspired by the company’s PGA Tour players, as well as Parsons himself. Lofts range from 46-60 degrees. Learn more about each 0311T wedge below.

0311T Sugar Daddy 


What PXG says: “The Sugar Daddy, currently played by World No. 1 Lydia Ko, serves as the one-size-fits-all wedge. It incorporates a moderate initial angle with a blended sole design. It can be used effectively from a wide variety of turf and sand conditions, allowing the golfer to use it for virtually any shot necessary.”

  • Lofts: 46, 48, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58 and 60 degrees
  • Finishes: Chrome $650, Xtreme Dark $750

0311T Romeo 


What PXG says: “Romeo, inspired by PXG’s pioneer touring professional Ryan Moore, incorporates a mild initial angle with minimal heel relief, allowing the lead edge to stay close to the ground. This creates an extreme amount of bounce when the face is open, making it ideal for playing from high rough or soft sand.”

  • Lofts: 58, 60 degrees
  • Finishes: Chrome $650, Xtreme Dark $750

0311T Zulu 



What PXG says: “Zulu, inspired by Masters champion … Zach Johnson, incorporates a steep initial angle with aggressive heel and toe relief. This type of wedge is conducive to playing from tight turf or firm ground, as it keeps the lead edge close to the ground from both a square and open-faced position.”

  • Lofts: 58, 60 degrees
  • Finishes: Chrome $650, Xtreme Dark $750

0311T Darkness


What PXG says: “The Darkness wedge was inspired by none other than PXG’s founder himself. [Its] sole design incorporates a moderate initial angle with moderate heel relief, coupled with a slightly larger head size for added forgiveness. Darkness is part of a special collection of black clubs and gear that feature a skull insignia and the number 26, representing the 26th Marine Corps Regiment that Parsons served with during the Vietnam War.”

  • Lofts: 55, 50 degrees
  • Finish: Darkness $800

    i want to know if the feel is better, than their softer metal used in the 0311 wedges being switched from s25c carbon to 8620carbon….tolerances might be tighter and grooves last longer, but the softness of the original is it worth the change? i have darkness wedges, but am skeptical as how much tighter can they be if my swing weights are on point, are spec’d and play well, just Very soft. i don’t know how i feel about all the names all over them as i liked the cleaner look, but PXG has been good with doing however you want…that being said worth the switch from previous head?

    So with a bag full of PXG’s you would NEVER let them out of your sight, or need some sort of carjack device on each club. “Start at $650.00”? that’s just stupid.

  3. Matt

    May 12, 2017 at 3:33 am

    I think PXG as it is = a baby boomer ego trip. If this guy wanted to shake up the business and say we’re the best, couldn’t or shouldn’t he instead be footing it with the other OEM’s pro level gear in terms of retail price, with two points of difference being certified precision of manufacturing as well as genuine customisation options that the others don’t offer…?

    Trying to re coup the $$$$$ they PGA & LPGA players…….good luck !
    I recently posted a set of irons on EBay, which I left in the garden for the fairies to use. The super sprinkle star fairy shot 59 three times with them, I would be using them, but they are too short for me. Bids start at $6500.00. p.s you get a free bag of fairy dust with them.

    The “they start at $650” line has to be my favorite!! They start?!!! Oh, so there’s a custom shop model for $988, I suspect? Hahahahaha!!! Deez jokers, I tell ya!!

    No one…..(NONE) will play better for having these. BUT, if you have the cash, need the ego stroke, and don’t mind contributing to the margins at PXG, these are for you. Its a beautiful thing, America is. Something for everyone.

    First off, I play PXG irons–thought I wouldn’t, but they are the best I have played (I have played a ton of different sets) for my game. That said, I am considering, at some point, checking out one of these wedges.

    Interesting that no one seems to mention that there’s been quite a few of these wedges seen in non-PXG staffer bags, including recent winner Kevin Chappell. Sure he get’s the for free, but he must like ’em better than anything else he gets for free…

    AND THE NUMBER OF PROS PLAYING THESE WEDGES IF THEY HAD TO PAY FOR THEM WOULD BE???? They would have the $800 custom model, 3 wedges at least 3 new ones a year…9 times 800, $7,200 for a season…yea I would say ZERO. But for free why not.

  10. birdie

    May 10, 2017 at 8:43 am

    if given these wedges for FREE i wouldn’t play them. i’d be embarrassed that anyone would look in by bag and think i was stupid enough to spend that kind of money on wedges. spending more money to get something better in return is one thing. spending more money just to have something that others can’t afford but is actually no better in quality that what the others are buying….flat out dumb. i’m all for capitalism, and hopefully a free market laughs pxg out of business.

    • Don

      May 10, 2017 at 5:31 pm

    I spent less than that on my ENTIRE BAG. And I consider my bag to be pretty nice…but even at $650? What is my money going towards? You mill a block of steel…like everyone else…on a machine…like everyone else…and that justifies what? There is like a 99% profit gain for PXG here…I doubt they spent all that much for the CNC machine, a block of steel, and a guy to push the button and read a magazine while it does his job for him. Especially for basically OTR clubs…at least Scratch had Don White to make custom sets of beautiful irons/wedges. That price I consider to be justified! I am sorry but I absolutely judge PXG users, they are all about that brand name when they could be spending all that money on a completely customized set of Edels which IMO are WAY cooler looking!

    Crazy. There is no talent or added expense in milling a wedge on a milling machine. Push a button. Compare the Taylormade MG at 149. Or look at Bettinardi and their wedges 179. Give me some hand ground or something by Vokey and it isn’t that much. The new JP are 2000 for 3 plus all of the time spent there, and they are personalized.

      Highly ignorant comment. More processing time means you produce less. If you produce less, you need to charge more to pay for the equipment and expenses.

        • stevemac

          May 10, 2017 at 7:43 am

          Thanks for your opinion. highly ignorant. Do handmade generally cost more or less- lets see. . . . the special Camerons, Mills putters with welded necks. Which takes more time? Doing it by hand or running it on a CNC? If you are familiar with that type of manufacturing you would see great time savings with a CNC.

          • KK

            May 10, 2017 at 11:37 am

            No thanks for changing the subject. This is not about “handmade,” whatever your definition is, pretty sure it’s wrong anyway, vs milled. It is a fact, not an opinion, that increased manufacturing time increases manufacturing cost, all else being equal. If you knew anything about CNC, manufacturing or business, you’d know that fact.

    If I bought the woods, and the irons and wedges and the putter, do I get a Ferrari to dirve them around with? Sure wouldn’t want to put them in any old car. Oh, and I guess I need a parsons bag (4k).

    I got one of the sand wedges…I went into the bunker, tossed the club in the air and said “do your thing”…the club turned around and knocked it one inch from the hole, then flew over and went back into my bag….I looked at it and said “you can’t even hole a bunker shot?”…so I sold it to kid for 20 bucks.

    I bought a set of these. A 50 , 56 , 60. They are the best wedges I have ever played. The ball fight is spot on and my dispersion ratio has never been better. If you can live the price I recommend you get these. You won’t be disappointed.

    If people are willing to pay $500+ for a milled putter, this is the next step, right? 100% automated w/ finishing for near perfection is an amazing (and expensive) feat. If someone is willing and able, why not offer it?

    • Don

      May 9, 2017 at 1:56 pm

      A putter you could use for your entire golfing life. A wedge is something – depending on how much you play – that would need to be replaced after a season or two.

      • Axelrage

        May 9, 2017 at 2:10 pm

        While that is true, how many of us actually stick with a putter (without buying others) for more than a few years? The longest I have gone is 2. Again, doesn’t matter for the target consumer, if the have the means they will pay.

    • JD

      May 9, 2017 at 2:19 pm

      Yeah I think I’ll take a tour putter for $2000 than 3 milled wedges.

    • Jack

      May 10, 2017 at 3:31 am

      Are casts or forgings less precise? As long as my wedges have the right lie loft angle, fresh grooves, and the right shaft, I’m good. 650 for 1? I’d rather get new wedges whenever they wear out. Who cares what wedge you are gaming.

    • Dave

      May 20, 2017 at 10:43 am

        Yup. No one seems to care that basketball and soccer shoes are 150+ and wear out a lot quicker than golf equipments. Just saw a $200+ basketball in sports authority before they closed. WTH?!, but there is a market for it.

        The lesson is, there is a market for everyone. That is why you see bimmer going nuts with the 1 to 8 series and an x and m variant in all of them.

          As a former store manager for SA the basketball you saw was the Wilson connected ball. Its a bluetooth ball that tracks your shots etc. kind of like basketball’s version of a swing analyzer. The most expensive game ball is usually around $75

    I’m at a loss here for the definition of “forged”. Sure, at one point that 11lb block of metal was heated and shaped… into a block. How can the club head be considered “forged” when no die or incredible force was used to shape the head?

    • BC

      May 9, 2017 at 12:14 pm

      The block of steel was most likely hot-rolled into shape, which, as you pointed out, is in no way, shape or form the same as forging. Talk about marketing nonsense.

      • new stuff!!

        May 9, 2017 at 1:08 pm

        OR… the 8620 carbon steel could be forged to any shape including a block and then milled to the shape of a wedge… kind of like what they said they did… why would you assume otherwise unless you were trying to put them down.

GolfWRX Spotted: Titleist TSi4 on USGA Conforming List



After all the excitement caused by the Titleist TSi2 and TSi3 driver and fairway woods, it didn’t take long for another Titleist TSi series driver to pop up on the USGA and R&A conforming club lists, and this time it’s the TSi4.

left-handed driver head from USGA list

Based on the entirety of the information provided in the submission, including the fact that it has been submitted both right and left-handed, leaves us to believe that along with the TSi2, and TSi3, which are currently going through the seeding process on the PGA and Korn Ferry Tours, the TSi4 will also be coming to retail in the near future.

If you remember last year in the spring of 2019, Titleist added the line extension of the TS1 and TS4 drivers to cater to further reaches of the fitting bell curve, for players that needed more launch and spin, and for those that needed further reduction respectively.

The line for the TS4 was simple—the smallest and lowest spinning member of the TS family of drivers. It reduced spin by an average of 300-400 RPM compared to the TS2 and TS3 drivers. All of this while also in a player preferred 430cc package. 

To achieve those kinds of dynamics, MOI of the driver’s head has to be sacrificed in favor of creating a low and forward center of gravity to create lower spin. The curious thing with the TSi4 is if Titleist engineers have been able to boost the head size to a full 460 and keep a similar profile or if they have reverted to a sub 460cc design to replicate the TS4’s mass properties and CG location in a new package with new technology to increase ball speed around the head and increase spin robustness.

Time will tell if and when this becomes available at retail, but based on this information, it’s most likely sooner rather than later.

Wunder: Titleist TSi driver first impressions



Three things I want to address before I kick this off.

  1. “Better, best” will not be addressed. It’s never about that these days only what works for me or you.
  2. I’m not adding TrackMan data to this for one simple reason: It doesn’t matter to me for a first impression. I can get lost in the data and ultimately it confuses my ability to just enjoy the sound feel and look of the driver. Obviously, the fitting was on TrackMan, but in the past, successful drivers for me started with the emotional part. Simply, do I like the thing? Can I look at it? Can I trust it? Can I hit shots with it? That’s it.
  3. When I say “spin this” and “spin that,” it’s always addressing a positive aspect.

On Tuesday of this week, I had the good fortune of visiting the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI in Oceanside, California) to do my TSi metal woods fitting. Won’t get too far into that, but essentially it’s golf heaven in every sense of the word. Like TaylorMade’s Kingdom or Callaway’s ECPC, TPI it’s a gearhead paradise.

Titleist Master Fitter Joey Saewitz (@thejoeysaewitz on IG) was my fitter and after hitting a few balls to warm up, we dug into my gamer driver that I adore.

Current Gamer Spec

TaylorMade SIM (9 degrees @ 8.5). Fujikura Ventus Black 6X (no tipping) 45 inches, D4, GolfPride BCT 58R

I have been constantly messing with my driver between new shafts, lofts, lie, etc. Since I’ve been playing a bit more this month, I’ve had the chance to work on my swing and the driver has been the last thing to come around. I’m working on decreasing dynamic loft through the bag and have not adjusted my driver to match. The point is, I’m hitting the driver solid but have lost a ton of height and spin to keep it in the air.

I’m saying this now because for key metrics I was at a deficiency because of the craftsman not his tools. The SIM I was fit into was/is excellent. So, as you read on, keep in mind that I knew that numbers-wise apples to apples my setup was vulnerable to getting beat out due to my tinkering.


My average numbers these days are are 105-108 mph swing speed, 155-160 mph ball speed, 14-degree launch, and 1,800-2,000 spin. At 43-years-old, when I’m hitting it solid I get a lot out of my driver. IF I’m swinging well, at my low spin, off days can be nauseating with the driver.


TSi3: If two of my favorite drivers 975D and R7 Superquad TP had a baby, the TSi3 would be it. Its flawless appearance-wise. The heel section gives it an onset look that the faders will love and the top line toe section is a bit rounded off to give it an open look without having to crank it open. Not the first time we have heard that but nonetheless, Titleist nailed it.

The face has a cool matte finish that I can’t get into yet, but it frames a white ball excellently.

TSi2: Like the TS2, it has that high-MOI shape, although I will say the top line and transitions are a bit softer on the eye. It’s a driver that looks like it just wants to go high and far. If I wanted to hit something as hard as I could that’s the shape I would look for.

Side note—the black shafts in the TSi3 are almost too cool to even look at—the closest thing to a Darth Vader golf club I have ever seen.


This is where they really figured it out. Titleist drivers in the past to my ear sounded good but not great. There was always an essence of ting that I couldn’t fall in love with. The TSi series fixed that in totality, like all the great drivers on the market in 2020 it has that hammerhead thud that I adore. When you crunch it, you literally hear crunch. At impact, however, it has a more compressiony (is that a word?) feel than its competitors. The comparison would be a one-piece forged feel vs a hollow body players iron. Both feel excellent but there is a difference. You can feel the ball squeeze into the face which I think most will notice and respond well to.

PERFORMANCE—Not going to compare it to my gamer as it’s not fair, I gear headed my gamer to the point of lunacy. I will only comment on what the TSi series did while testing.

TSi3: The biggest standout here was usable spin. I am not a high-spin player by any stretch, so if I can find a driver that gets me 2,100-2,200 consistently when I flush it, it’s a contender. For a player at my speed to sneak it out there with the big hitters, I have to launch it at 14 at 1,700 spin, and hope I’m aimed correctly. What I found with the TSi was I was getting that performance at 2,100-2,200, and if anything only giving up 2-3 yards all while doing it 5/10 times as opposed to 2/10.

What does all that jibberish add up to? Consistency and something I can play with. Is it longer than my gamer? I have no idea, but we will find out. What I know is I hit a bunch of really good shots with TSi3, and after I got going with it, it was point and shoot. Stable? Yes. Long? Yes. Forgiving? Yes. Playable? Yes.

TSi2: To be honest I only hit a few with the Tsi2 as its not my genre of music. What I can say is it feels apples to apples with the Tsi3, launches higher with a bit more spin, and goes really straight. No shocker there. The high MOI category has a bunch of contenders, and in my opinion, it’s a head weight game. Heavy is always better for stability.

The setup I landed on

I was fit into the (D4 SureFit setting 9 degrees @ 9.75, flat) however after testing a bit at home on course and range, I landed on the D1 setting, which I like. For whatever reason, I can play Tsi3 at 8.25 and still maintain height spin and it flew about five yards further.

Final setup

Driver: Titleist TSi3 (9 degrees @8.25, D1 SureFit, 44.5 inches, D4 swing weight)

Shaft: Fujikura Ventus Black 6 X (tipped 1)

Overall, the TSi Series drivers will be VERY popular but not for the reasons you would think. It’s playable, you can hit shots with it, that’s the mark of a GREAT golf club. It’s not all ball speeds and carry anymore in my opinion. This is a driver I can go out and play well with, that’s huge for a hack like me. In my experience, I can’t say that about a lot of drivers I’ve tried to make work in the last four to five years. That’s just me. Lots of great drivers every year but I’m a hard case and finding one that’s just right is a challenge.

Ultimately, for me, the best driver on the market is SIM hands down because it performs in the hitting bay and even better on the course—my hunch is Titleist has something that will do the same.

It’s a beautiful driver that I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know.
