New PXG 0311® Wedges Are 3x Forged and 100% The Real Deal

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – PXG has deployed a new line of wedges that are flawlessly forged and ideal for playing from virtually any turf condition. New PXG 0311 3X Forged Wedges introduce a confidence inspiring design and Precision Milled Full Face Groove Technology to help golfers hone their short game.

“Super sleek and a wildly easy to wield, these babies put you in control of your short game from almost any turf condition,” PXG Founder and CEO Bob Parsons stated.

PXG 0311 3X Forged Wedges are engineered from a high-grade 8620 soft carbon steel. They feature precision milled grooves designed at the U.S. Golf Association (USGA) limit to support extreme shot-making. Milled grooves yield the maximum amount of spin on shorter shots near the green while optimizing spin on longer shots from the fairway. Full Face Groove Technology expands the hitting area for shots played toward the toe side of the face. The expanded groove length helps golfers land shots soft and ensures more consistent results on impacts across the face.

The neutral sole design performs well from virtually any turf condition. A moderate taper from toe to heel allows the clubhead to be opened while keeping the lead edge closer to the ground. A moderate amount of sole curvature, or camber, from front to back ensures ample bounce on full swings with plenty of relief for flop shots.

High Toe Weighting Technology creates a high moment of inertia and positions the center-of-gravity more in-line with open face shots for enhanced consistency.

PXG 0311 3X Forged Wedges undergo a precision robotic polishing process. Robotic polishing is an extremely precise manufacturing process that supports consistent sole and face perimeter geometry with every club.

Available in Chrome or Xtreme Darkfinish, PXG 0311 3X Forged Wedges are now available online, in-stores, and through PXG Mobile Fitters.


FootJoy and Harris Tweed Hebrides Renew Partnership with New Footwear Collaboration

FAIRHAVEN, MA – FootJoy, the #1 Shoe in Golf, has once more joined forces with Harris Tweed Hebrides in celebration of a summer of Scottish golf, to introduce an extended limited edition footwear range that celebrates hand craftsmanship, heritage and tradition.

Following the popular release of the Black Watch Packard in 2021, the second iteration of the collaboration welcomes a unique Premiere Series Packard upper for men and a collection of FJ Traditions golf shoes for men and women.

Introduced during the pinnacle of the golf calendar by some of the world’s best players at the 150thOpen, an event adorned with its own storied tradition and unique character, Harris Tweed brings a distinctly auld accent to FootJoy’s Premiere Series and Traditions golf shoes. Each collection offers unique, flawless and beautiful designs, featuring distinct tweed and design characteristics, hand selected to recognize both brand’s intrinsic role in the history of the game and shared celebration of heritage.

The FJ x Harris Tweed collection is presented within an authentic Harris Tweed shoe bag as a nod to the hand craftsmanship, design detail and dedication to the golfer that inspires the collaboration.

Governed by The Harris Tweed Act, the fabric must be handwoven in the homes of residents of the Outer Hebrides, Scotland, to be able to use the Harris Tweed name and logo. This maintains the integrity and distinctive character of the fabric which is recognized globally for its quality.

Unusually, the wool is dyed before being spun, allowing a multitude of colors to be blended into the yarn, creating a cloth of great depth and complexity. Harris Tweed cloth has been produced on the islands of Lewis, Harris, Uist and Barra for generations using truly traditional methods.

Each year Harris Tweed cloth is exported to over 50 countries worldwide – with every meter handwoven on the islands and then inspected by the Harris Tweed Authority before being stamped, by hand, with the Orb Mark .

“It is a very special year for golf and FootJoy’s Harris Tweed collection showcases this heritage with authenticity and style,” said Mark Hogarth, Creative Director, Harris Tweed Hebrides. ”The Shawbost Packard celebrates an era when houndstooth Harris Tweed was the choice for the discerning golfer. We are proud that they will be worn by golfers playing courses around the world – we continue to value our partnership with the number one shoe in golf.”
