4 min read

So considerably of golf is about come to feel. That is real not only in terms of general performance but also the emotional reaction of a flawlessly struck shot. The feeling you get from hitting the sweet spot and searching up to look at a pure golf shot traveling towards the target is thrilling and that is what I’ve been suffering from far more generally considering the fact that putting the PXG Gen 4 clubs in the bag.



Whilst it’s still fairly early in the golf year, I’ve managed to play 6 rounds and various exercise periods with a launch observe tests the new sticks and identified a few general performance upgrades that produce a sonorous chord of self-confidence.

Very first, in the 0311 Gen 4 irons, the brand name is employing a new custom made-built XCOR polymer to enhance an exceptionally slim 1.5mm maraging steel facial area. The substance is soft and adaptable, but does not soak up vitality, which allows for speedier ball speeds and far more length as opposed to past generations. That new polymer also sounds and feels distinctive (in a very good way) at impression.

Additional length is interesting. I feel to be finding amongst 4 to 6 far more yards out of whole, perfectly-struck irons shots, outstanding verify into greens with the quick- and mid-irons, additionally a little bit of further forgiveness on mishits as opposed to Gen 3. But what I’m genuinely loving about the Gen 4 irons is the new center bodyweight. PXG has lessened the selection of its signature visible screw weights in the back again of the club head from nine to five—and not just for the sake of Dolly Parton. One particular of those weights is a huge and variable just one.

Through my session, the PXG club fitter and I experimented with a few distinctive weights in the club head, and we located far more consistency from the heaviest 18 gram bodyweight. Some gamers may well decide up speed with a lighter club head, but what I discovered was the heavier bodyweight extra some come to feel to exactly where my club head was at the top rated of the backswing. As a person who can get a little loose at the top rated and more than-rotates, it authorized me to better comprehend exactly where my arms are and result in the transition to the downswing right before I go too far.

Including bodyweight to the club head is not a new technological innovation it’s typically finished with lead tape for elite gamers employing blade-style irons in the back again of a maker’s tour van. But PXG has extra this further customization for all talent levels—from specialist to rank amateur—and it’s really worth the time and vitality to come across the correct mix at a individualized fitting.

As with past generations, PXG offers the 0311 irons in a few types T, or Tour Overall performance, which has much less offset (they are also far more workable) XP, for Xtreme Overall performance along with utmost forgiveness and P, for Player, which sits in the middle.

The new Gen 4 driver also functions hundreds of new tech. The physique and facial area are both equally built of significant-power titanium, though a huge section of the crown is made from carbon fiber reinforced with aluminum vapor. If you lower the club head open up, you’d come across a honeycomb-shaped thermoplastic urethane inside of the sole, which presents the club great seem and come to feel.

On the training course, the new driver is equivalent in terms of length with my past gamer. The sweet spot is not pretty as scorching, but it’s radically straighter and far more reliable many thanks to the custom made fitting. It is considerably easier to make par or better from ten ft father back again and in the fairway than in the tough or the trees.

The driver arrives in a few types XF (utmost forgiveness), X (mix of forgiveness and length), and XT (more compact head for far more speed).

Fairway Woods and Hybrids

Significantly like the driver, PXG’s new fairways and hybrids also use aluminum-vapor reinforced carbon fiber in the crown, but the bodies and faces are made from steel. Both of those the fairway woods and the hybrids attribute bigger faces (taller on the woods and extended in the hybrids) with customizable weighting for draw and fade bias.

These two clubs were being exactly where I saw the most length gains. Through the fitting, I picked up far more than a dozen yards with a a few hybrid and 20 additionally when ripping a a few wooden. Those people are monstrous numbers. On the training course, that is bringing extensive par-5s inside vary of my 2nd shot and generating choices to lay back again driving the risk of water or fairway bunkers all the easier.

The 0341 X fairway woods appear in lofts of thirteen, 15, 18, and 21 levels and seventeen, 19, 22, twenty five, and 28 levels in the 0317 X hybrids.
