PXG unveil 'affordable' and versatile 0211 driver, fairway wood, hybrid and irons for 2021.
There can be no doubt that PXG make incredible golf clubs but they've always come with a premium price tag... until now.
While affordable isn’t a word used very often by billionaire PXG owner Bob Parsons, it's exactly what he what he asked for when he tasked his team of engineers to create the new 0211 range for 2021.
Parsons has built the PXG brand on a ‘designed without cost restriction’ mantra, and it’s now well established as a serious option for golfers who don’t mind paying top dollar for brilliant products made from the finest materials – along with a very personal fitting session.
But Parsons felt it was time to attract the eye of a whole new audience and upset the golf industry applecart in 2021, pitching the 0211 range at golfers looking for an alternative to the likes of TaylorMade, Callaway and Ping.
As toiuy can see from the RRPs, they're aggressively priced and significantly less than other PXG clubs.
Let's take a closer look at the 0211 range.
PXG want to open the new 0211 up to a much wider audience than previous drivers. So wide, in fact, they’re thinking 0-25 handicappers could all use this versatile new model.
They’ve taken a mid-point between the Gen2 X and XF and created a mid-spin driver. Yes, it sacrifices a smidgen of forgiveness for a tad less spin, but PXG say it creates a beautifully balanced driver for distance and forgiveness, and it’s going to suit a huge number of golfers.

The head profile is a fraction smaller than the XF and slightly larger than the X. There’s a new taller face which adds a confident, inspiring look at address.
There’s also a new Ti412 face material which is brand new to golf and offers more flex across a wider area.
Intriguingly, the sole weights (2.5-20g) mean you choose your own shaft length between 44 and 46in, if you feel a shorter shaft will help impact the centre more often, without affecting the swingweight.
The PXG 0211 driver, which comes in 9º, 10.5º and 12.5º (all adjustable by 1.5º up or down), is available now priced at £325.

The 0211 drivers, fairways and hybrids all have a hybrid crown, with the highest raised section created from carbon fibre.
PXG say it removes inefficient mass from the highest point, which has real benefits over stainless steel as the heavier head material means the crown is typically eight times heavier than the same crown made from titanium.

New sole rails create a low centre of gravity, high MOI design. The idea also strengthens each head to cut impact energy loss as well as improving sound and feel.
PXG say the fairway’s rounded face, with lots of heel and toe relief, is just as effective for a tour player as a beginner. It comes in 3-wood (15º), 5-wood (18º) and 7-wood (21º) with an adjustable hosel allowing loft to be changed by 1.5º up or down.
The hybrid comes in 19º, 22º, 25º and 28º with the same adjustable hosel options.
Both the PXG 0211 fairway and hybrid are available now price at £270 and £250 respectively.

Versatility is at the core of PXG's 0211 family, so it’s little surprise to hear the new hollow body iron, with its muscleback look, will target everyone from beginners to Tour stars.
The muscleback shape gives room for PXG’s DualCOR technology inside and that, along with a 2° stronger loft (in the 7-iron - 28º) and half-an-inch longer shaft add up to 12.6 yards more carry over the original 0211 iron.
Everything about the iron is progressive, which satisfies the wants of a huge majority of golfers. The long irons have wider soles, longer blade lengths (so you get a larger face area at maximum flex) and extra offset so they’re fast but easy to launch and, thanks to having 15% more undercut face area, they’re also more forgiving.

You get the same face material as the 0311 Gen3 irons (which are £440 each), but thanks to the cost box on the 0211’s design brief, the head is cast in 0431 stainless steel (Gen3 are forged).
There’s also none of PXG’s signature (and pricey) perimeter tungsten weighting, which means you give up about 9% MOI against the similar shaped 0311 Gen3 XF model.
For us at least, this demonstrates perfectly what you pay for when you buy PXG’s forged irons.
The PXG 0211 irons, which come in 4-LW, are available now, priced at £130 each.
