New Tools for the Golfer’s Arsenal
Ever since our modern game of golf was developed in Scotland in the 1400s, golf enthusiasts have found multiple ways to create better equipment and elevate their performance. Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG), right here in North Scottsdale, is known for using breakthrough technology, inventive materials and sophisticated manufacturing processes to create an exceptional collection of golf clubs.
Last summer, PXG unveiled a new line of high-performance driving irons, the PXG 0311X. In a recent press release, the new product is described as “an exceptional option for golfers who want to augment their bag for optimum performance under various playing conditions.
“A low spin club with a striking profile, PXG 0311X driving irons deliver a more penetrating ball flight, keeping the golf ball out of the wind and in the middle of the fairway.
“Like PXG’s celebrated irons, 0311X driving irons are forged and features an ultra-thin face backed with a structural TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) material. The high-strength steel face paired with the TPE 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 that sits low in the club head and closer to the shaft axis, creating less dynamic loft at impact.”
Last year’s post-Thanksgiving’s Black Friday has brought a limited-edition release from PXG for the second year. Dubbed the Darkness putter in honor of Black Friday, 2017’s Bat Attack Darkness putter was released with just 1,200 units manufactured.
PXG describes the putter’s design. “The limited-edition Bat Attack Darkness features a milled skull insignia and the number 26, representing the 26th Marine Corps Regiment that PXG founder Bob Parsons served with during the Vietnam War. Each club is uniquely numbered according to the order it was milled and comes with an exclusive Darkness grip by Super Stroke and a signature PXG Darkness head cover.
“Part of the PXG milled insert line of putters, Bat Attack is a modified mallet-style design with a face-balanced hang angle. The putter uses a double-bend shaft that creates a half-shaft of offset and weighted alignment wings that provide a subtle visual aid to improve consistency.”
