PXG Next Gen Drivers… $575

I heard that the PXG next gen drivers for 2019 the PXG 0811X and PXG 0811XF are coming out at a lower price point. 

Only $575.00

Yes, and now that I read it out loud saying "only" before $575.00 seems a little weird. But considering the first PXG driver came out at $950 and last years came out at $875, it does sound kind of … dare I say reasonable? 

I've heard tons about their irons. But I've yet to hear anyone talk about their drivers.... Come to think of it I've not seen anyone play one of their drivers either... hmmm.....


What do you guys think of PXG in general and their drivers specifically?

On their irons? I love them. I got the gen 1's for half price during their sale. Basically $175/club instead of Mizuno's offering that I was considering of $150/club. I have a blended set between the players and extreme forgiveness. They seem pretty forgiving, the feel is great and I love the look of them.

I will hold out until their gen 1 drivers/woods go on sale, then I will consider them along with other manufacturers. I suspect they will go on sale later this year.

I agree, that price sounds reasonable compared to what they have been. It blew me away when I saw the almost 1000.00 driver!

I hope people don't rush out thinking that it's the holy grail of drivers now half price.

It sounds almost reasonable enough to buy a whole set...another year or two I might look at this...

I know there are several guys on here gaming PXG Iron. They are fantastic clubs. Everyone I've talked to loves them. The expense in mostly because of the quality. If you are a serious golfer with some serious extra cash, these might be for you.

They have an incredible discount for military. A friend of mine redid his entire bag excluding putter for about 3k, which is similar to if he went with a Titleist or Ping.

Which tells you what their normal, retail mark up is!

Well, to be honest, how many people having spent that kind of money on a set of clubs are going to admit that they don’t like them!  ;-)

But I love my $147 per dozen tees designed by a former NASA engineer!😜

Does that count for veterans or just active service? I would think just active service, (which they deserve).

For veterans and first responders as well, pretty nice of them. Looked at the 0811 driver, sixteen movable weights to fine tune the driver. If only my swing were that consistent but for the better players probably good. You'll definitely need a fitting to get the most out of that club I suspect.

Thanks for providing the link.

somewhat off topic, but close enough...  

2nd swing golf by me in Minnesota current has a couple used sets of PXG gen 1 irons on sale for around $900.   I was in there hitting the tour 3-iron from one of the sets the other day, and I find those clubs to just be absolutely amazing.   

from a nice compact head, you get amazing feel and consistency..   but, the amazing part is that the forgiveness on mishits is absolutely unexpected.   The forgiveness is equal to that of a super oversized game improvement iron.   

in my book, those irons absolutely live up to the hype.   and the Gen 2s are even better.

    • Oy. I don't give a shit about two top ten finishes in a decade. Nor am I comparing Jack to Vijay Singh, a guy whose putting stroke has been AWOL since roughly 2011. He wasn't. That's easily refuted. As for straighter you're not comparing like to like - you don't know what the fairway widths were, how far the ball bounced, etc. But we do KNOW that Tiger was longer than Jack. Tiger at 43 with a fused back is longer than Jack was when Jack was 40, 41, 42, or 43. Tiger @ 43: 297.8 Jack @ 40: 269.0 Jack @ 41: 264.3 Jack @ 42: 264.6 Jack @ 43: 266.1 Tiger was almost 30 yards longer at 43 than Jack was at 40, 41, 42, or 43. Now, several posts in, you're changing that up to say that, given modern equipment or whatever, Jack would probably have been as long as Tiger. But that's not what you said. Uhhhhh… He didn't do that. Neither did I. No they aren't. Furthermore, if all Tiger had to do was hit the ball 266 yards, he could probably hit 80% of the fairways. Fairways that are likely narrower, etc. So you lost the distance one, and if you want to measure "accuracy" by "fairway hit percentage" I again will point out you're not comparing like to like. They aren't playing the same golf courses, the same fairways, or hitting it the same distances. Furthermore, and more importantly, I don't care about stats like this when determining who the GOAT is. If you do, that's cool, but what I care about is wins, dominance, scoring averages, that sort of thing. I don't care who had a better short game (Tiger by far), who was a better putter (tie?), who hit a better 7-iron (almost surely Tiger), or whatever. I care about Ws. So not only are you provably wrong on distance, possibly off-base on accuracy, but you're arguing about things that most people don't even care about. Nobody considers Calvin Peete in the GOAT discussion because of how accurate he was off the tee. Huh? No. 🤦‍♂️ Uhhh, according to Jack, it was 118 MPH. I call bullshit on that. Oy.

    • I’ve never been one to sit on my donkey for too long. The past four and half decades have pretty much been work for me , as so I know, for many others as well.  Developing my golf game will (not) dominate my new found free time. It will though give me a new avenue of pursuits that I hope will keep my mind expanding. Thanks for the input and reply. 
    • That sort of extrapolation is not possible.  You are talking that he would be hitting the golf ball further than the average long drive competitor. I am not buying it. He would be one of the longer hitters on tour. Jack is not the physical freak like Dustin Johnson. I would put him probably a top 10 in distance yearly if he was in his prime competing today.
    • Guess it must be really hard to justify / recoup the corporate investment necessary for this tour - seems like its a new name every 5 years or so. Only people who must love this are the logo companies!
    • The first time Jack had his clubhead speed measured, he was 58 years old and he was at 118 mph. From 1995-1998, aged 55-58, Jack made 11 cuts out of 14 majors, finished in the top 50 in seven of them, and finished 6th at the 1998 Masters. A 25 year-old Jack Nicklaus playing today with today's equipment would average 360+ in driving distance. And would be winning majors and be one of the best players in the game.
