The 2022 PXG 0211 fairway wood is easy to hit with consistent launch and ball speed. Large footprint will be very comforting for many players. Tremendous value.
When PXG crashed onto the golf scene, they were known almost exclusively for producing some of the most expensive clubs in the game. Fast forward to 2022, and PXG is among the leaders in offering value-priced clubs that still perform. It’s been quite a ride, and golfers everywhere are better for it. In this review, I’ll take a look at the 2022 PXG 0211 fairway wood, a powerful long game club with a price that’s within reach.
As with the new driver and hybrid [review HERE], the 2022 PXG 0211 fairway wood has received a makeover to its address look. Last year’s version [review HERE] has a raised section and multiple finishes and textures. The new edition is entirely matte black with a small white “X” alignment aid. This club does have one of the larger footprints for a fairway wood and a round, symmetrical shape. Its face is also fairly tall, making it more comfortable to hit off a tee.
Like the other 2022 PXG 0211 woods, the fairway wood has a very simple design on the sole. One silver PXG logo breaks up the sea of black. Contrasting finishes and some geometric elements at the trailing edge keep the sole from being dull.
Sound & Feel
The sound of the 2022 PXG 0211 fairway wood is much closer to the new 0211 driver [review HERE] than the hybrid. It’s average in volume, slightly lower in pitch with a character that is best described as a “thwack.” There’s none of the usual fairway wood “ting” here.
Impact feels very solid in the hands, which is also similar to the driver. Both clubs also deliver feedback in the same way. You’ll be able to feel the location of impact easily, but you won’t hear much difference between pure strikes and mishits.
With their 2022 0211 fairway wood, PXG leaned into ease of use, giving the club a large footprint and a medium-tall face. The size makes this club very forgiving, and a fairly low CG means that it’s easy to launch. I often have difficulty with large-headed FWs, but any kind of decent contact put the ball on a reasonable trajectory with predictable distance.
The 0211 FW launches easily without launching the ball too high. The mid launch combines with mid spin to produce shots that have a pleasing, strong trajectory. PXG reports that this new version is over 3 yards longer than last year’s, largely due to a spin reduction of about 200 RPM. This club also sports a draw bias that’s noticeable but not overwhelming. I could still hit cut shots, it just took a little more effort.
As I noted in the 0211 driver review, one of the best things about PXG’s 0211 line is the ability to get fit and customize the clubs. Too often, more affordable clubs are “take it or leave it” propositions. With the 0211 fairway wood, you can go to a PXG fitter, try it, get fit, and order it to your spec. Customizing the length and grip size are free, and there are several no upcharge shaft options. You can also add higher tier shafts for an upcharge and still save a lot compared to other OEMs.
Originally listed at $249, the PXG 0211 fairway wood is available for $169 at the time of this writing. With consistent, easy launch and ball speed, it nails the most important performance elements for a fairway wood. Get fit for the right loft and shaft, and enjoy spending your savings on more green fees.
