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.

Lofts

  • 1 Iron: 15 degrees
  • 2 iron: 17 degrees
  • 3 iron: 19 degrees
  • 4 iron: 21.5 degrees
  • 5 iron: 24 degrees

    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

    Man, another Ping copy? For real? Nobody wants these clubs

      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.

Forum Thread of the Day: “European Tour looking into an incident involving Matt Wallace and his caddie from the BMW International Open”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day surrounds an incident involving Matt Wallace and his caddie, Dave McNeilly, which occurred on Sunday at the European Tour’s BMW International Open. After hitting a shot in the water on 18, Wallace appeared irate with his caddie, which incensed many of our members, as well as plenty of social media users.

According to bunkered.co.uk, the European Tour stated in an email to the publication that they are looking into the incident over allegations of abuse.

A limited number of clips of the incident have surfaced online.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • buckeyefl: “Sky Sports analyst Rich Beem: ‘I’m sorry, but I just don’t enjoy watching that. I know you’re intense but get over yourself.’”
  • Steele47: “Just looked at Wallace’s twitter. He congratulates the winner Andrea Pavan and also noteworthy, makes a point to compliment Pavan’s caddie. LOL.”
  • OldTomMorris: “It’s a pattern with Wallace that he goes after his caddy so often like this and golf commentators, analysts even fans have picked up on this. There has to be a base level of respect and decency; it appears that Wallace often falls short of that.”
  • golfgirlrobin: “He’s getting roasted on his own Twitter account. People don’t seem that amused.”

WRX Spotted: Ping Glide 3.0, Glide 3.0 Eye2 wedges

Published

on

Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and in the case of the golf world, we had been hearing rumblings of a new Ping Glide series for a while (since the introduction of the Blueprint irons, at least).

This week, at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, we now have an idea of exactly what’s coming with the beginning of Glide 3.0 wedges tour seeding.

Like a lot of initial releases, we don’t have the full tech breakdown, but I’ll make a few assumptions

  • Material: Based on the popularity of the i210s and the feel they offer golfers (so soft), the new Glide 3.0s are made from the same steel and utilize the same 50-percent softer Elastomer CTP.
  • Hydropearl 3.0? A finish designed to repel water and greatly improve consistency from the rough and wet conditions, its been working on irons and why stop there?
  • COG Shifting: Looking at the cavity, Ping engineers have been playing with a LOT of mass around this head. That is one of the cool things about wedges is, beyond the putter, they are the heaviest heads in the set. More mass equals more COG relocation. It’s noticeable in the comparison below.

Notice the back of the top line

There is a lot more mass higher in the LW vs PW

  • Sole grinds: This is where Ping continues to step up there game in the wedge category. And like previous families of wedges, there appears to be a lot of options in design. We should see some TS options in the bags for players at the Open Championship if it’s dry and firm.

Beyond grind options, we also have totally different head options with a Glide 3.0 Eye2. Let’s be honest, this makes a TON of sense since other companies have been borrowing design traits from the Eye2 for the last couple years for their wedges. Why wouldn’t Ping utilize its own already popular design and update it for modern turf conditions?

We will have to wait and see how close we are to what the tech specs will be but like with most things Ping, the release to tour is usually a tell-tale sign that you should be seeing these in store, on shelves and ready to pre-order very soon.
