Behind-the-scenes: PXG 0311 Gen2 iron launch and club fitting

Published

on

In this video, I take you behind-the-scenes at the PXG 0311 Gen2 iron launch event. I go inside the new Scottsdale National Golf Club Villas, get an exclusive PXG iron fitting, play golf at SNGC’s “The Other Course” with playing partners Brian Baumgartner (aka Kevin Malone from The Office) and Lydia Ko, and more!

Watch the video above, and check out the links below for further reading.

    I cringe at Tursky’s style (and haircut, what the heck man… have Parsons pay for one). For a BA and Masters in Journalism, this is pretty awkward and staged… try a few more times mate

    Soooo,let’s see. Put me up in some posh digs, get me a custom fit set of irons, let me play with Ko and Spiranic, probably knock a couple strokes off my game just from the tech alone, never mind any coaching I might get on the fitting tee, and would I EVER say that brand sucked? Of course not. Let’s be real.

    NOW, for the lunch pail crowd who could literally spend multiple pay checks to get a full bag of PXG, and plays off a 15 handicap, WHAT is a fitted set of PXG’s gonna do that a set of Hogans, or Miuras can’t do at half the price (or less)?

    The video with Ko said it all. She has a special technique that generates a ton of spin. Thinking she could make a store bought Mac Daddy 4 tap dance on a green, and so the PXG is simply a better custom fit.

    If I win a lottery prize then yeah, I’ll go to a couple golf schools with my game improvement clubs and get a rudimentary swing going. Maybe then I could justify the outlay. In the meantime, hope you enjoy these types of trips. It’s what hackers would die for.

    I have a hard time believing the COR2 elastomaer equates to higher ballspeeds. They look a little different than Gen1 but doubt theyre longer. I’ll find out at demo day and compare to my Gen1 0311

        … and now your old PXGs are obsolete and you must buy the Gen2 edition filled with engineering mojo… and you will need another fitting just because ….

Hidden Gem of the Day: Wolfridge Golf Course in Angora, Minnesota

Published

on

These aren’t the traditional “top-100” golf courses in America, or the ultra-private golf clubs you can’t get onto. These are the hidden gems; they’re accessible to the public, they cost less than $50, but they’re unique, beautiful and fun to play in their own right. We recently asked our GolfWRX Members to help us find these “hidden gems.” We’re treating this as a bucket list of golf courses to play across the country, and the world. If you have a personal favorite hidden gem, submit it here! 

Today’s hidden gem was submitted by GolfWRX Member eboettne, and it’s called Wolfridge Golf Course located in Angora, Minnesota. Why did it make the list? Here’s what eboettne had to say:

“This 9 hole reversible course is located approximately 30 miles away from the acclaimed Giant’s Ridge and Wilderness courses that are usually the center of most MN golf trips. However, few people include this course in the itinerary and it should be. The trip to the course is memorable as you are deep in the northwoods and must drive down a long gravel road to arrive at the clubhouse. The course has elevation changes, rock outcroppings throughout, and is generally just a fun time. However, the most impressive part of the course may be that the entire thing is maintained by one man that lives in a house(the only one you’ll see) on the property. If you are going to make it up this way you’d be remiss to skip this gem.”

According to Wolfridge’s website, it’s $39 to play 18 holes with a cart any day or time of year, or $26 to walk. Twilight is $23 for unlimited holes (presumably before dark).
