New PXG 0317 X Driving Irons – Penetrating Performance by Design

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – The new PXG® 0317® X Driving Iron is engineered with the elite player in mind. An ideal hybrid alternative or specialty club for extreme courses and conditions, the 0317 X presents a tour-inspired design that significantly boosts moment-of-inertia and increases forgiveness for unmatched distance and accuracy.

The PXG 0317 X Driving Iron is triple forged from 8620 soft carbon steel. The forging process creates a tight crystalline grain structure that delivers a pure resonance and an excellent feel at impact. Then, the face and back of the clubhead are precision milled to ensure every surface, curve, and angle are produced to exact specifications. The clubhead, which presents a taller and longer blade length than a traditional player’s iron, then undergoes a precise robotic polishing process to refine the sole and other geometries for a flawless finish and unmatched consistency club to club.

To the best of PXG’s knowledge, no other golf equipment company forges and CNC mills their clubheads. Hit them once and you will know exactly why PXG does it.

PXG’s proprietary XCOR2® material, introduced in the company’s award-winning PXG 0311® GEN6 Irons, backs an ultra-thin clubface. The high-speed resin core is injection molded into the clubhead’s hollow cavity. The material provides structural stability to the face (which, unsupported, would fail with a single hit) and dramatically increases ball speed performance.

One large weight is located near the center of gravity on the back of the clubhead. The Precision Weighting Technology is used to achieve optimal swing weight. Unique to PXG, customers can experience the benefits of these adjustments during an in-person fitting. Weighting is not intended to be adjusted after purchase, unless done by at PXG.

Available now in a chrome finish, the PXG 0317 X Driving Iron has a standard 18-degree loft, similar specs to a 2-iron, but can be easily adjusted stronger or weaker.

Edison Golf Launches New Website

ROCKPORT, TX, – Edison Golf, a company dedicated to revolutionizing wedge performance for recreational golfers, has launched its new website at EdisonWedges.com. The site confirms Edison Golf’s position as the industry’s premier custom wedge brand and is designed to streamline the custom wedge buying experience.

The new, contemporary website tells the Edison Golf story of innovation and performance and highlights the EDISON 2.0 wedges which provide forgiveness and any-lie versatility without sacrificing precision shot making. The new site takes the golfer through a step-by-step experience to build their custom EDISON 2.0 wedges to their exact specifications.

“In contrast to almost all other wedges targeted to the skills of elite tour pros, for nearly 40 years, I have been focused on helping the everyday golfer play better,” said Edison Founder Terry Koehler. “The new website explains the benefits of using wedges designed for the way they play vs. the way tour professionals play and makes it easier for them to put one to the test with our 100% Risk Free Trial.”

The new website clearly presents the innovative EDISON 2.0 wedge technologies, which represent a quantum leap in wedge design and performance. The visual departure from what traditional wedges have always looked like is because they have the most efficient distribution of clubhead mass in the category to deliver improved distance consistency, more forgiveness and enhanced spin.

A new and improved WedgeFit Scoring Range Analysis takes the golfer through an examination of their particular scoring range needs to help ensure proper loft gapping, shaft selection, length, lie angle and grip preference. From their WedgeFit output, golfers can enjoy a streamlined purchasing process that allows them to easily custom-build their wedges to their personal specifications. The site offers single wedges, sets of three or four with discounted pricing, or heads only for the do-it yourselfers.

In addition to wedge recommendations, golfers who take the WedgeFit Scoring Range Analysis will receive Koehler’s “Wedgeology 101” series of emails that reveal the truths behind wedge performance and give insights from his 30+ years as a wedge designer. They will also receive a new “Wedge Play Master” series to share tips, hacks, and techniques to get more out of their scoring range performance.

“Modern golf club history shows us that every major performance improvement has required us to get used to a different look, dating all the way back to steel shafts. The Ping® Anser® certainly didn’t look like the classic BullsEyes and 8802s of the day. The original metal woods were a far cry from persimmon drivers. Cavity-back irons . . . graphite shafts . . . oversized drivers . . . hybrids . . . ‘better’ has always looked different.

All EDISON 2.0 wedges are backed by the Company’s 100% Risk Free Trial. The Edison craftsmen will custom build any EDISON 2.0 wedge and ship it to you with shipping paid for by Edison. You can put it to the test on your course, hitting the variety of shots you face every round. If for any reason it’s not the best wedge you’ve ever played, Edison Golf will buy it back.
