New PXG 0211® XCOR2 Irons Make Cutting-Edge Golf Club Technology Affordable

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – PXG has unveiled the latest evolution in its wildly popular 0211 Irons offering. New PXG 0211 XCOR2 Irons employ some of the cutting-edge golf club technology in the company’s GEN5 series wrapped in a high-performance progressive set design and delivered at a price that will knock your socks off.

Informed by PXG’s flagship 0311 GEN5 Irons, PXG 0211 XCOR2 Irons integrate XCOR2 Technology, Power Channel Technology, and golf’s thinnest club face. XCOR2 Technology results from a multi-year collaboration with material experts to develop a core specifically for PXG Irons that is lighter and faster. Power Channel Technology supports additional face loading at impact. The internal U-shaped corridor increases the coefficient of restitution (COR) and transfers more energy back into the golf ball for faster ball speeds and more distance.

The clubface is made from an HT 1770 maraging stainless steel using a cold roll manufacturing process combined with an aged heat treatment method. This produces an extremely tight grain structure and higher-strength performance than what can be achieved through the traditional forging process. This advanced material and process is one of the attributes that enables PXG to deliver the thinnest clubface in golf. Combined with XCOR2 and Power Channel Technology, the overall system delivers explosive performance and an incredibly soft feel.

Engineered with a broad audience of golfers in mind, PXG 0211 XCOR2 Irons employ an innovative progressive set design. With years of research and performance data gathered by PXG’s Fitting Specialists, the progressive set design features varied blade lengths, offset, and bounce for greater forgiveness in harder-to-hit long irons and maximum control in shorter irons.

PXG 0211 XCOR2 Irons also undergo a precision robotic polishing process. Robotic polishing is a notable breakthrough in manufacturing. This extremely precise finishing process delivers significant improvements in the consistency and quality of the final geometry of the clubhead as compared to the traditional, industry-standard hand polishing.

Built-to-spec and available in a Chrome or, for the first time, Xtreme Dark finish, PXG 0211 XCOR2 Irons are now offered online, in-stores, and through PXG Mobile Fitters.

Edison Golf Now Offers Free Shipping on all Wedge Orders

ROCKPORT, TX – Edison Golf Company, maker of the revolutionary Edison Forged Wedges, is pleased to announce it will now ship all wedge orders completely FREE via UPS in the continental U.S. starting immediately. Golfers can select any Edison Forged wedge built to their custom specs, and the company will build it and ship it free.

While designed for serious recreational golfers, the Edison Forged wedges feature a cosmetically different weighting design that makes them look very different from traditional and stale ‘tour design’ wedges that have been on the market for decades. The Edison technologies distribute up to 18% more mass above the impact point to dramatically improve distance control and forgiveness, while also increasing spin. They also feature the patented and proven “Koehler sole”, which combines both a high and low bounce into each wedge for optimum versatility. Quality forged construction and Edison’s durable chrome finish combine to deliver exquisite feel while significantly extending the useful life of the wedges.

The Edison Forged wedges were designed by Koehler, who also writes a popular weekly blog as The Wedge Guy on GolfWRX.com. Throughout his 30-year history as a wedge designer, Koehler has repeatedly proven that historic ‘tour design’ wedges are the most finicky clubs in the game, even less forgiving than the most traditional blade short irons. He pioneered raising the CG (center of mass) of wedges with Reid Lockhart® in the mid-1990s, and his EIDOLON® wedges of the early 2000s were the first to introduce CNC-milled grooves in mainstream wedges as well as thicker upper section of the wedge clubhead. Koehler’s design philosophies were further advanced with his breakthrough progressive weighting in the SCOR™ wedges of 2011-2014 and the Ben Hogan® TK wedges of 2015-2017.

The Edison Golf website features a one-of-a-kind fitting tool, the WedgeFit Scoring Range Analysis to help golfers gain insight into their scoring range challenges, as well as to see which Edison Forged wedges will best suit their game. Edison’s streamlined purchasing process allows customers to easily custom-build their wedges to their own specifications for loft, shaft, length, lie angle and grip preference. If there is a particular non-standard shaft that the golfer prefers, the company will build their Edison Forged wedges on those shafts for a reasonable upcharge.

Edison Forged wedges are backed by the Company’s bold 30-Day Performance Guarantee. Edison will let you play your first custom-built Edison Forged wedge for 30 days on your course, hitting the shots you face every round. If you don’t experience “The Edison Difference”, the Company will buy it back for 100% of what you paid for it.

Revo Ambassador, Golfing Great Annika, Unveils Two New Limited-Edition Sunglass Styles

New York, NY – Revo, the global leader in high-quality performance sunglasses, announced today the launch two new limited-edition sunglasses designed in collaboration with Hall-of-Fame golfer, Annika Sorenstam. Featuring custom styles and unsurpassed functionality, the Revo frames are designed to have golfers looking good – both on the course and off.

The Revo x Annika collection features two styles of unisex sunglasses for golfers. One style focuses on lifestyle, made for everyday wear, while the other style is a sports frame made with the links in mind. Each style comes in a choice of three colors and each features Revo’s glare-reducing, NASA-based Light Management System to protect wearers from harmful bandwidths of sunlight.

The highly anticipated collection comes after Annika signed on as a Revo Golf Ambassador to raise awareness about the brand’s line of NASA-based lens technology.

“As a golfing legend, Annika is keenly aware of the visual challenges golfers encounter out on the course,” said Revo CEO Cliff Robinson. “We’re so happy to release these new sunglasses that combine Revo’s legendary NASA-based lens technology with Annika’s sense of style on the fairway.”

Over her career, Annika has tallied over 90 worldwide victories including 10 major championships. In 2003, she became the first woman in 58 years to tee it up against the men in the Colonial and this year she won the U.S. Senior Women’s Open, 13 years after her last USGA competition. She is still the LPGA’s all-time money leader. Her ANNIKA Foundation has seven global events with over 600 girls competing each year from over 60 different countries.

Revo’s signature NASA-based Light Management System has been protecting consumers from harmful bandwidths of sunlight for decades with a collection of lenses that protect, enhance, and improve the way we see the world. Every Revo lens protects from 100% of UVA, UVB, and UVC light to help prevent vision problems.

    I see PGX advertising on TV a lot, but they aren’t in stores. How do you get fit for them and if you order and don’t like them, can they be returned?
