2020 PXG Sugar Daddy Milled 0311

PXG has launched its new wedges for 2020: the 100 percent CNC milled Sugar Daddy 0311 and 0311 Forged.

PXG’s Sugar Daddy 0311 milled wedges are forged with an oversized 3x forged blank and are 100% milled to ensure each sole, face profile shape, and leading-edge radii are made exactly the way the product was designed, while the 0311 forged wedges contain a 3x forged body.

Both the 2020 Sugar Daddy 0311 milled wedges and 0311 Forged wedges from PXG feature high toe weighting which draws the CG higher and more towards the center of the clubhead. The result of this more elevated and more central CG is designed to increase spin and improve playability on open face chip and pitch shots.

The new additions from PXG contain multiple sole options – the 09 sole and 07 sole. The 09 sole is a traditional and versatile sole option which bids to provide excellent performance from all types of grass and conditions. In contrast, the 07 sole option is a narrow sole which is ideal for playing open-face chip and pitch shots – particularly from tight turf conditions. The multiple sole options are available in PXG’s 58 and 60-degree wedges.

Both wedges from PXG are constructed of 8620 steel, a strong but soft alloy designed to prolong the life of the grooves, as well as enhance the overall appearance of the club over time.

The proprietary weighting system on the new wedges from PXG aims to optimize both CG location and MOI while also providing a method to increase the total head mass adjustability range, with both lightweight titanium and heavier tungsten weights implemented.

PXG’s 2020 Sugar Daddy 0311 milled wedges are available at a price of $650 in Chrome and $750 Xtreme Dark, while the brand’s 0311 Forged wedges cost $295.

    Might seem extravagant, but your shanks will have buttery feel to them not found in mere $120 wedges.

    This is ridiculous. Talk about being out of touch with the average golfer. What a pretentious company.
    Who NEEDS such wedges?

    $650 a wedge is exactly what’s wrong with golf now-a-days.

    Could care less how their products perform, pxg will never receive $1 from me.

      The worst part is that they give bad ideas On pricing to other manufacturers. 5 years ago it was easy to find great wedges under $100, not anymore.

    Incorrect info. They are no longer making these in black finish. And “extreme dark” was a limited run model of the 0311t Milled wedges. Made personally for Bob parsons. The shape and specs were slightly different, just as the Romeo and Zulu were, which they are also no longer making. Only chrome sugar daddy milled wedges for gen 2. I’ve hit the all, including the new model sugar daddy, and I MUCH PREFER the gen1 models over the new ones, for several reasons.

    $650+ for a wedge is absurd.

Dustin Johnson settles on driver after testing 5 in last week

Published

on

Dustin Johnson cracked his driver at last week’s Northern Trust and has since been on the hunt for a new gamer in time for this week’s BMW Championship.

Per Golf Channel, DJ was seen testing five different drivers on the range this week at Caves Valley Golf Club, and though he’s opted for the SIM most of the year, it appears Johnson is ready to try something new this week.

According to Golf Channel’s Brentley Romine, Johnson has settled on a TaylorMade SIM2 Max at 10.5 degrees with an LA Golf Shaft for this week’s playoff event.

Johnson is 20th on Tour for Strokes Gained: Off The Tee in 2021 but has struggled with the big stick since finishing T8 at the Open. Since then, DJ has missed two cuts from three.

Vokey WedgeWorks launches limited-edition 60A grind

Published

on

Vokey WedgeWorks has unveiled its limited-edition 60A grind, which is inspired by major champion Geoff Ogilvy.

The unique wedge features 60 degrees of loft and 4 degrees of bounce and is designed for the player looking to flight the ball higher while playing from firm turf and bunkers.

Speaking on the new limited-edition 60A grind, Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill said

I spoke with Geoff (Ogilvy), and we got on the topic of Australian golf courses and how they compared to courses in America and around the world. I asked him some specific questions which resulted in an idea to design a lob wedge that complemented the firm links-style conditions that players face – not just in Australia and Europe – but globally. Geoff has always been a low bounce player in his 60 degree, so I took the original chassis that he had in his L wedge and removed the ribbon taking the bounce down.”

The wedge was born out of the popular Vokey Design L Grind, with the grind line on the sole smoothed out in design for a faster feel through the turf.

Consistent with all SM8 wedges, the 60A features a progressive CG, pushed forward of the face for increased MOI, as well as Spin Milled grooves designed to offer a consistent ball flight control and maximum spin. The 60A is available in a Brushed Copper finish which will wear over time.

The limited-edition Vokey WedgeWorks 60A grind s now available for $250, only through WedgeWorks on Vokey.com.
