GolfWRX Spotted: New PXG Gen4 drivers and 2021 putters

Published

on

Some people like to say “the West Coast is the best coast,” and as far as kicking off the PGA Tour season with events and new equipment, it’s hard to argue.

At the American Express last week won by Si Woo Kim, we got our first in-hand look at the Gen4 drivers from PXG which were spotted only a few weeks ago on the conforming equipment list – GolfWRX Spotted: PXG Gen4 drivers on conforming list

As per our initial reports, the PXG Gen4 driver line looks to include a number of models to cater to varying player types and appears to be using some sort of high strength Aluminum Vapor (AV) carbon composite to save mass from the crown.

Although we don’t have official confirmation of the technology built into the crown, the Aluminium Vapor would be the logical explanation based on the two-tone look and how the material shares the visual of the Mitsubishi Chemical AV Raw golf shafts.

We also spotted some updated putter models including the below Brandon which has newly positioned tungsten weights at the extreme rear to further enhance MOI and forgiveness compared to the current model which only features much smaller weights.

For more pictures and too see what others are saying about the spotted PXG Gen4 drivers and putters, check out the GolfWRX forums: PXG Gen 4 prototype drivers – new putters

    Putter looks great. Couldn’t pay me to game the driver though. It’s horrid looking

Best bang for your buck wedges? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing wedges. WRXer ‘Nev Adams’ is a left-handed golfer on the hunt for 3 new wedges and reaches out to our members who have been sharing their best ‘bang for your buck’ suggestions in our forum.

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.

  • lefthack: “My Lazrus wedges were $50/each with a coupon. I really like them a lot.”
  • phizzy30: “Mizuno T20 wedges are excellent. Not sure if you’re willing to spend 150 per club, though.”
  • chadwickog: “Nothing wrong with used if you get them in good shape. Maltby is a great option; also look at Sub 70 wedges. The Hogan equalizer wedges are pretty nice too.”
  • PhilsFanDrew: “I also recommend the Maltby wedges from GolfWorks. I was intrigued by the direct to consumer companies like Lazrus and Bombtech, but you have no idea what shafts they are using, and the quality control from these outfits can be suspect. With GolfWorks you can order an OEM shaft, and their build quality is top-notch.”
