WOTW: Jason Kokrak’s Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 01

Published

on

Jason Kokrak added a 3rd PGA Tour victory at the Houston Open. His 2 stroke victory over Kevin Tway was very special after having a rough few weeks struggling with his game. He held the large, chrome trophy in the air while wearing a Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 01 on his wrist.

Tag Heuer has been around since 1860 when it was founded by Edouard Heuer in Switzerland. Since its beginning, Tag Heuer has been making chronographs and it is a craft they excel in. The Carrera line was introduced in 1963 and has a very strong automotive influence on their design. The Carrera Calibre 01 was brought out in 2015 and is a little different since it contains a skeleton dial. A skeleton dial allows you to see through the dial and view the mechanical movement in action. The dial has 3 subdials at 12, 9, and 6 0’clock that are lined in silver and dark grey. The hour and minute hands, along with the hour markers, are finished in stainless steel and polished. They are then filled with a luminescent material for viewing in low light. Skeleton dials are considered harder to read and the date window in between 3 and 4 o’clock is easy to miss. A sapphire crystal covers the dial and is surrounded by a black PVD coated steel bezel. The bezel has a smooth finish and contains a tachymeter scale for measuring speed. A 45mm case is on the larger side and made from stainless steel with brushed and black PVD finishes. On the right side of the case is the screw-down crown and pushers for working the chronograph.

The back of the case has a display window showing off the mechanical movement and rotor. The caseback is finished in a matching black PVD and held down with 4 screws. Inside the Carrera is a self-winding automatic movement made in-house by Tag Heuer. The Calibre 01 contains 39 jewels and gives the wearer 50 hours of power reserve. A black perforated rubber strap holds the watch on your wrist with a black PVD folding clasp bringing it together. The original retail on this Calibre 01 was $5,450 and they trade for a little over $3,000 now on the used market.

Congrats to Jason on another win, it is always exciting to see the long hitting Canadian hold up a trophy. I don’t know what kind of watch guy Jason is, but I hope to see some more pieces on his wrist in the future.

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.
