“From the materials and processes we use to the extremely tight tolerances we maintain, these golf clubs are built the way they are designed and are consistent club-to-club so that elite players can experience total control and more than a touch of forgiveness,” PXG Founder and CEO Bob Parsons explained.
Over the years, PXG has focused on improving the external geometry of golf clubs and researching the polymer materials used in their proprietary injection molding process. Through this research, PXG has discovered that the polymer materials used in the core have a significant impact on performance. These materials influence how the outer clubface flexes and responds during impact, which affects the initial launch conditions of the golf ball, including launch angle and spin rate. This results in a highly accurate club.
This understanding of material properties is one reason why the T Iron has been added to PXG’s elite player category. The introduction of S COR polymer core has allowed PXG to tailor a better club for the needs of elite players. The S COR material reduces face movement during impact, increasing spin rate and lowering the initial launch angle. This enables elite players to have better control over the trajectory of their shots, making it easier to hit their desired trajectory windows. The increased spin performance also enhances the player’s ability to shape the ball left or right, allowing for controlled draws and fades.
The PXG 0317 T Irons feature a new internal tungsten weight (15 grams) located in the toe area. Tungsten is denser than steel, allowing PXG to precisely position the weight and optimize the moment-of-inertia (MOI) of the clubhead. The weight also optimizes the center-of-gravity (CG), aligning it with the center of the grooves. This ensures that when golfers hit the ball in the middle of the face, they hit it on the sweet spot.
The precision milled grooves on the PXG 0317 T Irons are manufactured to the tightest tolerance possible, meeting the limits set by the USGA. These grooves are designed to maximize performance in both fairway and rough conditions, regardless of whether they are wet or dry.
PXG 0317 T Irons also utilize Precision Weighting Technology to further fine-tune performance. A large tungsten weight located on the back of the clubhead allows for easy adjustment of the swing weight and head weight target. Changes in the head mass can be made without affecting the center-of-gravity, ensuring optimal club performance. This customization is done as part of the custom build process during an in-person golf club fitting.
“For a person with solid ball striking, you can do pretty much anything you want with these clubs – you’re in charge. You control the spin, the flight, and the shape of how your ball is moving,” shared PXG LPGA Tour Professional Ellinor Sudow. “I love this blade club for my shorter irons (pw-7), which are my scoring clubs, where I want to get as close to the hole as can be.”
“These irons are more forgiving and versatile than ever,” PXG Korn Ferry Tour Pro Mason Andersen added.
The PXG 0317 T Irons, named after the 0317 U.S. Marine Corps Scout Sniper occupational code, support advanced shot shaping to any target. To learn more about PXG 0317 T Irons or to schedule a custom golf club fitting, visit http://www.PXG.com.
