PXG adds 0311X driving irons to lineup

Published

on

PXG’s 0311X driving irons have become a popular option with the company’s PGA Tour players in recent months, landing in the bags of Charl Schwartzel, Billy Horschel and Charles Howell III. Now they’re available to all golfers looking to add more horsepower to the top of their iron set.

Like PXG’s 0311XF, 0311, and 0311T irons, the 0311X driving irons have a thin-face, hollow-body construction that’s filled with a thermoplastic elastomer material to improve ball speed, consistency, and feel. The low-spin clubs have wide soles, but they target better players with a minimal amount of offset and a low center of gravity that’s positioned closer to the shaft axis to help create less dynamic loft at impact. The result is a low-spin trajectory that can maximize distance, as well as be a fairway finder for golfers off the tee.

“The 0311X looks incredible at address,” says Billy Horschel. “It really suits my eye. Off the tee, it launches low with little spin, which helps me avoid getting into some hairy spots on the course.”

The PXG 0311X driving irons are available in five lofts and will sell for $350 in the company’s chrome finish, $450 per club with the company’s special Xtreme Dark finish.

    I actually got fit into a set of PXG’s. Great sticks. Not for everyone. You have to get fit and buy what’s best for your game and swing. Varies for each person. As a side note, lot’s of haters on this site who have probably never even hit a PXG club before. Don’t knock it till you try it.

    Will be little more than a status brand until they can start winning regularly on the PGA and LPGA tours.

    1 iron all the way. Just want to have this sitting in my bag because I am a snob and have the cash. Otherwise it will make me look like a pro. Cheers.

    Amazed at all the people coveting these clubs purely on looks and branding. Pick one up, swing it, hit balls with it then decide if you want to pay $350-$450 on it. No one’s going to be impressed you’ve got PXG gear unless you can actually use it.

    Too cheap and pedestrian for me. Only Japanese Tour World Elite Extreme clubs will do. $10,000 or more per club.

    Take out the screws and replace it with steel and you have a $100 club. PXG are screwy status clubs for people with more money than brains. PXG must be paying the pros mucho $$$$$$ and that’s why the prices are so inflated.

      So where did they get all that money if they dont have any brains???

      Its all relative – to some people $1200 Mizuno’s are a status symbol. I know several people who have PXG and all of them bought for performance – the SL63 is for status

    Little offset. Isn’t this going to make it hard for the say 5 to 7 handicap and above to hit?

    I suppose if you poach the ping designers your going to get clubs that look like….

    There are so many cheaper clubs that look so much better. Are they really much better or is it just an expensive badge?

    Not for me.

      Ive played AP2, Apex CF16, S56, MP 59 and others I know I am forgetting – none of them felt as good or has as consistent dispersion on distance. Not as long as the Callaways, but far better feel

      As a matter of fact, I really do want these clubs.

    For better and faster speed players – great alternative if you don’t want the 0311XF – which I like quite a bit.

GolfWRX Spotted: Titleist TSi4 on USGA Conforming List

Published

on

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.
