PXG introduces all-new 0211 Z clubs for beginners and occasional golfers

Published

on

PXG has unveiled its latest line of clubs, the all-new 0211 Z family, which is targeted at beginner golfers and those who occasionally play the game in design to both improve their play and make the sport more enjoyable.

Designed as a 10-piece full bag, the new PXG 0211 Z lineup introduces a driver, fairway, hybrid, and six hybrid-irons (6-9, PW, S). A PXG 0211 Putter with Runway Reticle alignment technology, as well as a PXG golf bag and hat, round out the set.

Speaking on the new release, PXG Founder and CEO Bob Parsons said

“We know what beginner and occasional golfers are up against. So, we decided to develop a revolutionary product that aligns with their ability. Our testing has shown that these clubs are so good that beginners start enjoying the game with a full bag after just one lesson from their local pro.”

0211 Z Driver, Fairways & Hybrids

The 0211 Z driver, fairways and hybrids feature a low-profile, carbon fiber head design and a high-speed face made from premium materials.

Each club contains PXG’s proprietary Precision Weighting Technology and vibration dampening Honeycomb TPE Inserts, which work together in design to provide maximum forgiveness on mishits as well as high trajectory characteristics. 

The PXG 0211 Z driver features an oversized clubhead design, 16-degrees of loft, and a tall, high-speed Ti412 face, all in design to provide a higher launch, more spin, and a higher moment-of-inertia (MOI) off the tee.

The PXG 0211 Z fairway and hybrid designs promote a low, deep CG location and high MOI. The crown geometry features dropped heel and toe areas in design to help keep spin in an optimal range.

In addition, the squared face, made from high strength HT1770 stainless steel, creates a larger face area in design for maximum ball speed even on off-center hits, and the Honeycomb TPE Insert moves the CG low and back in the clubhead in a bid to offer additional forgiveness. 

0211 Z Hybrid-Irons 

PXG’s 0211 Z hybrid-irons contain a hollow-bodied construction designed to incorporate the distance producing technology of a hybrid and the trajectory of an iron.

Billed by PXG as their highest-flying, easiest to hit, and most forgiving irons yet, the clubhead construction, including the large profile, allows for an extremely deep CG, which is designed to promote forgiveness and a high trajectory.

In addition, the two-tone cosmetic with a wrapped groove of the new hybrid-irons creates a defined topline and sole shape. 

The PXG 0211 Z line is available as a 10-piece Full Bag ($1,695 including a bag and hat), a 3-piece Woods set ($795), or as a 6-piece Hybrid-Irons set ($795), and can be purchased now at PXG.com.

Tour Rundown: Hot potato Houston Open | Four-lady playoff | Phil

Published

on

The middle of November saw the first snows descend onto the lawns of our neighborhood. The flakes did not linger and were gone with the afternoon’s sun. The unraked leaves again showed their colors, and the grey skies foretold the difficulty of the coming months.

Against this backdrop, four golf tournaments drew to a close, and none resembled a foregone conclusion. Each offered its own sense of drama, and this made their viewing quite compelling. Imagine what the playing must have been! Join us as we run these events down, from the Middle East to Houston, and from Florida to Foenix Phoenix.

PGA Tour: Houston Open ends up in Kokrak’s hands after hot-potato finish

Jason Kokrak won a PGA Tour event for the first time last fall. His name was on no one’s lips this week in Houston. The probable winner ranged from Martin Trainer, who led for a round or two, to Scottie Schefler, who seemed poised to break through for a win in his home state, to Kevin Tway, who appeared poised to complete a comeback into the winner’s circle. One by one, the probables slipped away, and Kokrak was the last man standing at Memorial Park.

The magnificent muni was without its usual, fast-and-firm teeth, but it sure challenged many of the world’s best in mid-November. The low round of the week was Scheffler’s Friday 62, but that was the only day when Mem Park gave up low scores with regularity. The weekend was a survival test, and Kokrak’s 131 total eclipsed the remainder of the field. The pride of North Bay, Ontario, posted consecutive birdies from the 13th to the 16th holes, jumping ahead of the chasing pack by two shots.

Scheffler, fresh off a debut on the US Ryder Cup side earlier this fall, looked for all the world like the day’s winner until he made bogey at three of the first five holes on the back nine. Two closing birdies brought him into a tie for second with Tway, and he left town still in search of his first tour title.

LPGA: Pelican Championship decided after four-lady playoff

Her complex armamentarium finally let her down. Nelly Korda had just returned to number one in the world, had played magnificent golf for 63 holes, then came apart on Sunday’s final nine. Bogey at the 12th and triple at the 17th dropped her from the lead for the first time. And then, as if she recalled the last of her five birdies, Korda summoned something at the last, posted a sixth birdie, and joined Lexi Thompson, Lydia Ko, and Sei Young Kim for an improbable, four-way overtime.

How did it all happen? Thompson seized control late but, in an all-too-familiar denouement, gave shots backs even later and dropped from -19 to -17. Ko made four birdies and zero bogeys on the day, and certainly didn’t expect to have a shot at the title. Kim, like Korda, made birdie at the last to jump from a top finish into a chance at victory. Off the foursome trudged to the 18th tee, where Korda ended things quickly.

Nelly ripped an approach into 10 feet at the watery finisher and, for the second time in forty minutes, made birdie. None of her challengers could match her, and the young Floridian had secured her fourth win of the campaign.

European Tour: Dubai Championship boosts Hansen to new heights

Joachim Hansen and Padraig Harrington have a common thing: each made a putt at the 72nd hole to qualify into this week’s World Championship. For Harrington, the birdie meant a tie for eighth position. For Hansen, the putt was much bigger. It meant a second career win on the European Tour, and a tee time on Thursday in the circuit’s biggest event. That, plus the elevation to a new echelon where multiple winners reside.

I’ve used a bit of license in that first paragraph. The putt that won the event for Hansen (see above) came about twenty minutes earlier, at the 71st hole. Faced with a climb up a tier, from the front of the green to the back, with a bit of rightward tilt, the golfer from Denmark did well to negotiate the distance, ending about seven beyond for par. His left-curving effort found the hole’s center, and preserved his one-shot advantage. With par now all that was needed at the five-shot closer, Hansen complied, edged Bernd Wiesberger and Francesco Laporta by one, and breathed. Hansen was so relieved, he left his putter and hat on the 18th green 😉

PGA Tour Champions: CSC Championship ends up in unanticipated hands

Around five o’clock, six golfers were tied for the lead at 16-under par. It was that kind of week in the Arizona desert. Darren Clarke took an early clubhouse lead at 17-under par, but he suspected it wouldn’t last. Jim Furyk, attempting to chase down Bernhard Langer for the season-long title, faltered on the inward half with bogies, when birdies were needed to overcome Clarke. Steven Alker, the New Zealander on the most unprecedented tear in the history of the senior circuit, made a run at a second victory with birdies on his final two holes, but ultimately came up one stroke shy of first position. David Toms closed with matching 65s over the weekend to catch Clarke for third spot at -17.

So who captured the last tournament of the season on Tour Champions? Was it Brandt Jobe, who shot 66 on day four? Nope. How about Paul Goydos, who tossed a nine-birdie 63 onto the scoreboard on day four? Uh-uh. It was Lefty, Phil Mickelson himself, who reminded us how many more wins he would have had in a Tiger-less world. Philly Mick signed for 65 after six birdies and 12 pars. He reached 19-under and had to be relieved that Alker ran out of holes.

As for the season-long Cup chase, Furyk had the opportunity to be the first to win the Cup on both tours, but his T5 finish bailed Bernhard Langer out. One day after beating his age (64) with a Saturday 63, Langer posted three-under, yet dropped to 17th. That number was good enough to secure his sixth CS Cup, and first in three seasons.

European Tour to become DP World Tour from 2022; total prize money to exceed $200 million

Published

on

From 2022, The European Tour will be rebranded as the DP World Tour, bringing an end to the Euro Tour, which was founded in 1972.

Under the new deal, DP World, a Dubai-based logistics company, which sponsors the season finale on the European Tour, will nearly double the total prize money on the tour, to more than $200 million from 2022.

On the rebranding, European Tour chief executive Keith Pelley said in a statement in the European Tour’s report

“Today’s announcement is undoubtedly a momentous one in the proud history of our Tour. The launch of the DP World Tour in 2022, coinciding with both of our 50th anniversaries, will herald a new era in global golf, and crucially it will benefit everybody involved – all our players, caddies, fans and partners – as well as making an important contribution to wider society.

The entire ecosystem of our Tour will be strengthened because of this hugely significant deal, and that was essential to us and to DP World, who have been an incredible supporter of our Tour as well as golf more widely, from grassroots through to the elite professional game.

The DP World Tour is, therefore, a natural evolution of our decade-long partnership, and the presence of ‘World’ in our new title better reflects our global reach.”

The new DP World Tour will feature a minimum of 47 tournaments in 27 different countries, including new tournaments in the UAE, Japan, South Africa and Belgium and an expanded Rolex Series comprising five events. 

Each event solely sanctioned by the DP World Tour will also have a new minimum prize fund of $2 million.
