PXG have revealed a new driving iron aimed at providing low spin and a more penetrating ball flight to keep shots out of the wind
Driving irons have gained a reputation over the years for being the most unforgiving and difficult to hit clubs in the bag. But thanks to modern fast face tech, exotic new materials and extreme perimeter weighting they're getting easier to hit than ever before. The worlds best players like regularly swear by theirs so its no surprise luxury golf brand PXG are introducing one of their own.
PXG reckon the new 0311X driving irons are an exceptional option for golfers who want to build shot options into their bag for optimum performance under various playing conditions. The 0311X has been designed to be a low spin club and thanks to its striking profile delivers a more penetrating ball flight, which is perfect for those wanting to keep shots out of the wind.
“PXG makes the world’s finest golf equipment and our new 0311X driving iron is no exception,” said American entrepreneur and PXG founder Bob Parsons. “It keeps the ball low and sends it far … feels buttery smooth … and looks smoking hot.”
Like PXG’s celebrated irons, the 0311X driving irons are forged and feature an ultra-thin face backed with a structural TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) material to generate brilliant sound and feel. The high-strength steel face paired with the TPE also produces a more efficient energy transfer, resulting in increased ball speed and more distance.
A wide sole design and minimal offset help create a CG position low in the club head and closer to the shaft axis, creating less dynamic loft at impact.
“The 0311X looks incredible at address,” shared PGA TOUR champion and PXG Tour professional Billy Horschel. “It really suits my eye. Off the tee, it launches low with little spin, which helps me avoid getting into some hairy spots on the course.”
