New PXG 0811X and 0811XF “Gen2” drivers hit the USGA conforming clubs list

Published

on

Based on two new entries on the USGA Conforming Clubs list, PXG may have new “0811X Gen2” and “0811XF Gen2” drivers coming to market in the future; “Gen2” is nomenclature that PXG has used on its recent PXG Gen2 irons.

PXG’s first generation 0811 drivers released 3 years ago, and have since been replaced with PXG 0811X, 0811LX and 0811XF drivers. Now, as of October 1, it seems 0811X Gen2 and 0811XF Gen2 drivers are on their way. PXG isn’t currently reporting information on the new Gen2 irons, so we’re left to speculate on designs based on the photos.

Check out the differences between the older models and the newer models below; we’ll use the USGA photos of both to ensure an apples-to-apples comparison. Take notice of the different positioning of the screw ports, which house either tungsten or lighter weight titanium screws that allow for CG (center of gravity) adjustments that effect trajectory and ball flight.

    This is glorified hot garbage at best. Get a Taylormade tour Issue head and be done with all the other gimmicks.

      Tour Issue also being glorified garbage. What would a tour issued head do for someone that the same off the shelf driver wouldn’t?

      Matter of fact, if that tour issued head has already been hit melted, it might be even worse for a player.

    I always love the look of the PXG drivers but after hitting them they just do not perform.

    I hit an 811 vs. my Ping G400. Did not see any reason to change, least of all because of the distance.

    The brand placement is a bit over the top and obvious. Basically it’s offset just so the PXG logo is level with the ground while Billy Ho et al are holding their finish. That logo is HUGE and screams LOOK AT ME!

Bettinardi signs Eddie Pepperell

Published

on

Eddie Pepperell is a singular quantity in to world of golf, so it’s not surprising that the Englishman has taken a unique route to becoming a Bettinardi staffer.

20 months ago, the two-time European Tour winner walked into Core Golf in Thame, Oxfordshire, and bought four putters, including a Bettinardi Studio Stock No. 8.

Pepperell, who jumped from No. 513 to No. 38 in the OWGR since putting the Bettinardi in play in April 2017, won’t have to pay for his putters any more. He joins the likes Francesco Molinari, Haotong Li, and Matt Kuchar as a Bettinardi staffer, the company announced the today.

“I’ve tried a number of putters and time and again, it’s the one model I keep coming back to.” said Eddie. “Positively I won’t have to buy a Bettinardi putter again, but having bought four putters from Core Golf I’m just hoping I haven’t put them of business as a result!” he added.

It was after Pepperell’s British Masters triumph in October that negotiations to bring him on board began in earnest.

“Once Eddie stayed ahead of a strong field at the British Masters to win his second Tour title of the year with a Bettinardi putter, we decided to reopen negotiations and we’re delighted with the outcome. It means that we now have another top 50 player in the world playing Bettinardi putters…” said Executive Vice President, Sam Bettinardi.

Here are the specs for his Studio Stock No. 8, courtesy of Bettinardi, which also provided the photos below of Pepperell’s putter (pre rust).

Material: Mild Carbon Steel
Finish: Mercury Gray PVD Finish
Face Milling: F.I.T. Face
Weight: 358 grams
Length: 33.25”
Lie: 71 degrees
Loft: 3 degrees
