Everything you need to know about PXG’s new 2023 Gen6 golf clubs

Published

on

Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG) has officially announced the release of its new Gen6 family of products, which replace the company’s previous Gen5 lineup.

The new Gen6 stable includes two driver options (o311 and 0311 XF), two fairway woods (0311 and 0311 XF), two hybrids (0311 and 0311 XF), and two iron models (0311 P and 0311 XP).

PXG offers two different versions of each club type to satisfy the varying needs of different golfers. The standard 0311 metalwoods and 0311 P irons offer players a combination of forgiveness and performance, whereas the 0311 XF metalwoods and 0311 XP irons are made for players who need a little “X”-tra forgiveness on mishits.

The Gen 6 clubs are available for purchase on PXG’s website, or in PXG in-store locations, as of Thursday, March 23. The Gen 6 driver is selling for $499, fairway woods $299, hybrids $289, and irons $219 apiece.

Below, we break down the new technological enhancements in the Gen 6 family.

PXG’s 0311 and 0311 XF drivers

The PXG 0311 driver model (pictured above and below) offers a traditional tear drop shape and a compact profile, and the PXG 0311 XF model has a larger footprint and shallower face to help players who hit mishit the ball more often.

New this year for PXG is a robotic polishing process that helps with tighter CT tolerances to boost ball speeds for product users. PXG has also improved sound and feel compared to previous iterations by using what the company calls High Modal Frequency Designs.

Additionally, each head is designed with a 3-port adjustable weighting system in the sole, and they’re built with high-strength Ti412 face structures to increase speed.

The 0311 driver is available in 7.5, 9 and 10.5 degrees, and the PXG 0311 XF is offered in 9, 10.5 and 12 degrees.

PXG’s 0311 and 0311 XF fairway woods

The PXG 0311 fairways (13, 15, 18 and 21 degrees) and the 0311 XF fairways (16, 17, 19 and 22 degrees) each have adjustable sole weights – three weight ports in the 0311, and two weight ports in the 0311 XF – and each are designed with flatter soles to lower the overall mass of the heads to increase forgiveness. The 0311 XF model, in particular, is designed with a Railed Sole Geometry to help create lower friction to help with turf interaction.

The Gen 6 fairway woods are built with AM355 steel bodies and HT1770 steel faces.

PXG’s 0311 and 0311 XF hybrids

The PXG 0311 hybrids have a more compact shape at address, while the 0311 XF features a larger shape that offers more forgiveness. As with the Gen 6 fairway woods, the soles of the hybrids are flatter to keep weight low, and the XF in particular has protruding split rails to enhance turf interaction.

The 0311 hybrids are available in 17, 19, 22 and 25 degrees, and the 0311 XF hybrids are available in 19, 22, 25, 28 and 31 degrees.

PXG’s 0311 P and 0311 XF irons

PXG’s new 0311 P and 0311 XP irons now have a 15 percent thinner face, and PXG is calling them “the fastest irons we’ve ever made,” and the “softest irons we’ve ever made.”

The faces are made from high strength HT1770 maraging steel, and they have milled channels behind the faces to increase face deflection, increase launch, and raise ball speeds. In between the faces and the back cavity, PXG uses its propriety XCOR2 material to enhance feel, energy transfer and durability. The bodies themselves are five-times forged from 8620 steel, and they have milled back surfaces to reduce wall thickness and increase precision.

PXG’s new 0311 P and 0311 XP irons also use Tungsten weighting in the low-and-back portions of the heads to increase launch and forgiveness.

According to PXG, the 0311 P irons are designed for low-to-mid handicappers and have moderate offset, whereas the 0311 XP irons have more offset, and they’re built for mid-to-high handicaps who want more distance and forgiveness.

Callaway Opus wedges launched on PGA Tour

Published

on

Editor’s note: This is an excerpt of an article our Andrew Tursky filed for PGATour.com’s Equipment Report. Read the full piece here.

While this is the world’s first official look at the final versions of the Opus line of wedges, Callaway staffers have actually been involved In the prototyping and design process for around two years, according to Callaway Tour Manager Joe Toulon.

“The Tour launch is basically when we’re introducing it to the Tour players officially for the first time,” Toulon said on Tuesday at the 2024 Travelers Championship. “We’ve done a lot of work with this wedge in the prototyping stages. It’s a project that we’ve really kicked off 2 years ago, when we really started digging into this category and understanding what the best players in the world look for in a wedge.”

Of course, Callaway’s research and design team has been studying the wedge category for decades, but this time around – during the design of the new Opus wedges – Callaway put more power than ever into the hands of PGA TOUR players. Toulon and team paid close attention to everything Tour players wanted from a wedge, including the look at address, the shape of the leading edge, how the club sits on the ground with the face open, the shaping of the sole, the sound, the feel, and how the wedge interacts with the turf at impact under various conditions.

Although all factors were considered, the most significant barrier to entry for Tour players is their first impression of the shape of the wedge at address.

“The shape is really something we spent a lot of time with, and getting it to look good to the majority of players – it’s something that you may not hit everybody’s eye exactly right, but this is something where we got countless hours of feedback and testing from Tour players, and this is kind of the final product,” Toulon said. “…I think one of the things that players really focus on when they set a wedge down for the first time is what it looks like at address, and what it looks like when you open the face, and we did a lot around that; the shaping and the roundness of this wedge.”

Toulon calls it the “final” product, because there were various iterations of the Opus wedges before this. Actually, these final versions of the Opus wedges are based on the sixth prototype, specifically.

“[The Opus wedge] was code named ‘S6’ during the process,” Toulon said. “We stamped every wedge out here (on the PGA TOUR) in this shape with S6, and that basically just stands for some of the shaping designs we went through. That was the sixth shape design that we settled on based on what the player feedback was. That’s really the whole story behind this wedge; tour-inspired, tour-driven. These guys out here designed this wedge. This is just the final cosmetic and final design that we went with.”
