SPOTTED: Three new PXG drivers appear on the USGA conforming list



Following up its original 0811 driver launch, PXG came out with 0811X drivers earlier in 2017. Now, as of December 18, there are three new PXG drivers that have popped up on the USGA Conforming Driver Heads list. The new heads include all 9-degree models; PXG ZZ, PXG XXF and PXG XX. Based on the placement of its signature screw-like weights, it appears there is a fade-biased head, a draw-biased head and a neutral head.

Discussion: See what GolfWRX members are saying about the new PXG driver heads

PXG ZZ (Neutral)

The PXG ZZ head appears to have a slightly more compact shape than the XXF and XX models, and it also has only six weights in the sole that are placed in the rear of the head on the toe and heel. The placement of these weights suggest both high MOI (moment of inertia, a measure of forgiveness) and a neutral trajectory bias.

PXG XXF (Fade-biased?)

The PXG XXF head has nine weights in the sole, with three weights placed out on the toe; this weight placement suggests a fade-bias. And with three weights closer to the face, this suggests a CG (center of gravity) that’s more forward than the ZZ model, possibly to lower spin.

PXG XX (Draw-biased?)

Like the XXF head, the PXG XX head has nine weights in the sole, with three weights forward in the head. The difference is that the XX model has three weights in the heel, suggesting a draw-bias.

What do you think about the new PXG drivers that appear on the USGA conforming list?

    I am a custom clubmaker and fitter with over 25 years of experience, I also worked at a big box store as the main fitter and repair man. I have had the chance to hit everything out on the market, I can say that the PXG clubs are far superior to anything out there. I am amazed at all the WRX so called golfers who constantly rip on this company when in fact they are about the only company out there who are in fact actually building a club to help your game and not relying on hype and advertising to sell like OEM companies. Yes I carry PXG in my shop and will put them against any others. You dont get a cheap shaft like OEM clubs instead you will get a shaft to fit your swing. Stop whinning about the price and buy a set that will last for many years instead of a new set of under performing clubs every couple years. I play them myself switching last summer and won my club championship flight by 11 shots, yes the clubs are that good. Maybe try them instead of just knocking them.

      Great news but exactly what makes the PXG clubs “far superior to anything out there.”?
      How do PXGs “… build a club to help your game..”?
      How do PXG determine “…a shaft to fit your swing.”?
      If you are a legit “custom clubmaker and fitter” do you get PXG component club heads and then do the shaft fitting?
      How do you do a “dynamic” shaft fitting with the PXG club heads installed?
      Thanks for your clarifications to your nebulous comments about PXG and your great game.

        Yes I am a Ligit clubmaker and yes I receive the clubhead from PXG I select the proper loft for your game I also make the selection of the correct shaft for your swing. Not all shafts have the same flex as their given letter A R S X. You must know the cpm of the shaft you order to get this correct also I may tip a shaft to make it a bit stiffer depends on customers needs. Mostly use paderson shafts of graphite design. You get quality with PXG

          If they are far superior, then why isnt every pro gaming at least the driver?

          PXG has far superior marketing at best

    Sorry guys and girls but you’re all wrong! These driver heads are all “foam” filled for more ball speed across the whole face, even hit it low in the shaft and it will fly!!!! Each driver will set you back $15,000 and in 2 months the R&A will deem them illegal and someone will set a nice law suit against them for the foam in the driver head because someone did it 200 years ago….

    Bummer, there goes my $15,000 ROFLMAO….

      As long as the ‘skrews’ in your head don’t come loose when swinging 😉


    Dec 20, 2017 at 12:53 pm

    Sorry, but $400 will buy a driver, if not better, comparable to PXG. I currently play the Callaway Fusion Heavy, long and forgiving, however, the new Ping G400 appears to be the current king of the hill with distance and forgiveness.

      Yah but they don’t have skrews in the head….. skrews are superior for accuracy and forgiveness… and that’s a fact. No skrews no swing no good !!!!

    I think it is great that the one’s that have no limit on how much they spend on their clubs has places to go….maybe it is time the less affluent get a company to make “Good” clubs everyone has a chance to afford…One place I have found and used for “Very Good” and affordable clubs is called GolfWorks…they sell components and tools to make clubs, but also do a little customization selling their own club heads, shafts etc….never tried their irons but will stand firm behind some of their fairway metals fit to their shafts, as a 12 handicap going thru $300 Yonex, and $200 Taylormade fairway metals the $69 GolfWorks fairways blow them away…

      That’s off-topic, don’t you think. Let’s get back to the PXG drivers. Most of us are not buying them, we all know they are expensive, but let’s take a look at the tech.

Luke List, using just his wedge to putt, takes JT to the 18th hole



Typically in match play, a golfer looks to gain an advantage over his opponent in order to win the match, such as hitting more fairways, more greens, or making more putts. While playing against Justin Thomas in the 2018 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, however, Luke List bent his putter, and he resorted to using his wedge on the greens for the remainder of the match. Quite the disadvantage.

“I was walking off the 6th tee, and I was a little unhappy about the way I was feeling, a little under the weather,” List explained after the round. “And I thought it was like a brush area and I just kind of swiped my putter, and it turned out to be a wall. It bent like a fraction of an inch. So unfortunately I couldn’t use it the rest of the way. Stupid on my part.”

List was 3-down through seven holes, playing against the No. 2 golfer in the world. Game over, right?

Well… List remained 3-down until the 15th hole when he dropped this bellied-wedge into the hole from off the green.

Then, List rolled in this short birdie “putt” with his wedge on No. 16 to go 1 down.

In the end, List lost to JT 2-down. But the fact List forced the match to even go to the 18th shows a lot of fight.

Puma Golf introduces new Ignite PWRADAPT Hi-Tops



Good news for hi-top lovers and the fashion-forward golfing set: Puma is launching Ignite PWRADAPT Hi-Tops.

The style, first worn by Rickie Fowler in 2016, blends trendy style with a bevy of technology. Puma offers comfort and stability with state-of-the-art innovation in the bold footwear.

PWRADAPT Hi-Tops use Puma’s proprietary PWRADAPT sole technology that introduces 3-dimensional traction pods. The shoes also feature Ignite Foam throughout the entire length of the midsole for the first time in a cleated shoe.

Additionally, Puma replaces the traditional tongue with an Evoknit knitted collar for improved fit and breathability. The lightweight hook-and-loop strap offers a more customized fit and enhanced support.

The shoes come with a two-year waterproof warranty and feature a number of hidden design elements: the leather tab on the heel is stamped with the zip code of Puma Golf’s Carlsbad’s Headquarters, the interior of the perfect fit strap features a cat skull with cross clubs, and the inside sock-liner has a large scale topographic map of Carlsbad which also points out the exact location of Puma Golf’s HQ.

“Our goal each season is to push the game forward with products that challenge the status quo while respecting the traditions of golf. The Ignite PWRADAPT Hi-Tops represent this continued drive for style innovation and the evolution of a silhouette that’s become synonymous with Puma Golf and Rickie. It’s our way of integrating the latest in on-trend fashion elements with cutting-edge golf footwear,” said Grant Knudson, Global Head of Footwear & Accessories, Puma Golf.

The Ignite PWRADAPT Hi-Top ($220) is available now in two colorways: Grey Violet and Black.
