PXG Debuts New, Fully Optimized, 100% Milled Blackjack Putter

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – PXG, an innovative golf company dedicated to developing high-performance equipment and apparel, has debuted its latest golf club technology – the PXG Blackjack Putter. The first release in the company’s new Battle Ready Collection, the Blackjack is a mallet-style moneymaker fully optimized for stability and forgiveness on every stroke.

“From MOI and CG location to balance and stability, we’ve optimized absolutely everything on our new Blackjack Putter,” PXG Founder & CEO Bob Parsons stated. “Since putts account for roughly 40 percent of shots taken, why not put the odds in your favor with PXG’s Blackjack Putter?”

The 100% milled Blackjack Putter introduces a new bi-material construction, integrating aerospace-grade aluminum with high-density tungsten to support a deep center-of-gravity (CG) location. By locating the CG farther away from the face, it is more difficult for a player to twist the face angle off its natural path during the stroke. This improves the player’s ability to deliver the face square at impact.

Additionally, the Blackjack features a new variable-sized, pyramid face pattern with groove depth optimized to increase the center hit velocity. The design also helps ensure consistency in all significant factors that affect roll, including initial ball velocity, launch angle, spin rates, and skid distance.

The Blackjack presents large sole weights made of heavier tungsten and lighter titanium that influence clubhead mass and bias. These weights, offered in 5g, 10g (standard), 15g, and 20g options, are easily adjustable for optimal performance.

With an overall adjustable weight range of 330g to 445g, the Blackjack’s assembled mass is further defined by the PXG hosel chosen. The putter can be purchased with one of four hosel types – heel-shafted, double bend, plumber’s neck, and armlock – to suit any stroke.

The sole of the Blackjack features PXG’s iconic Darkness Insignia – a skull with the number 26. The insignia commemorates Bob Parsons’ service as a rifleman (0311) with the 26th Regiment of the United States Marine Corps during the Vietnam War.

Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort Introduces ‘Lucky Seven’ Package

LOS CABOS, MEXICO – To mark the seventh anniversary of the world-caliber Quivira Golf Club in 2021, Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort has unveiled a ‘Lucky Seven’ package.

This special 6-night, 7-day odyssey allows guests to select a combination of seven activities that showcase the best the Quivira Los Cabos resort community has to offer, including the following culinary experiences, leisure or pampering activities:

Orchard Cooking Class. Held at Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf Resort & Spa in an open-air kitchen in the resort’s organic orchard, guests select and prepare vegetables and herbs to prepare a regional Baja dish. Once completed, a gourmet lunch prepared by the class is paired with Mexican wines and served at a communal table set beneath market umbrellas in the orchard.

Hook & Cook. What could be better? Early morning on the beach, the sun rising from the ocean, with surf-casting equipment available to those who want to cast a lure into the Sea of Cortez and try their luck. Catch or no catch, resort staff is on hand to prepare a delicious meal centered around fresh ceviche, slivers of fish marinated in citrus and spices, with an array of flavorsome garnishes.

Beach Bed. Large elegant beds, shaded on top as a sunscreen and to the sides for privacy, are placed on the beach. Ideal for couples who want to totally relax and enjoy the sight and sounds of the surf. Full butler service is provided, with all food and refreshments included.

Golf at Quivira Golf Club.  This Jack Nicklaus Signature course is one of the most spectacular layouts in the world. Marked by massive sand dunes, sheer granite cliffs and rolling desert foothills, Quivira Golf Club offers more oceanfront exposure than any other course in Los Cabos. An unforgettable thrill from any set of tees, Quivira has four comfort stations, notably the Oasis, which features Mexican specialties and a full bar.

Private Tequila Tasting. Tequila, the first distilled spirit on the North American continent, is the concentrated expression of one ingredient: blue Weber agave. A trained sommelier will describe every nuance of this unique spirit, from the fermentation and distillation process to the various types available, starting with the blanco (white) version, which is generally used to make the ever-popular Margarita.

Shopping Tour (with butler). One of the Tower at Pacifica’s expert butlers will take guests on a guided tour of downtown Cabo San Lucas, visiting the finest artisan shops where ceramics, clothing, straw hats, handbags and worthy souvenirs are available.

Sunset Tepee Experience.  There’s nothing more sublime than dinner for two on the beach. Imagine a four-course meal served at sunset under the cover of your own tepee.  The experience starts in time to celebrate sunset, announced by the ancestral sounds of conch shells, and continues over a leisurely two hours. The menu, which is prepared tepee-side by a resort chef, includes craft cocktails.  The experience includes curated DJ music and a photographer to memorialize the experience.  24-hour advance booking is requested.

Armonia Spa Immersion.  Armonia Spa offers a complete menu of rejuvenating treatments to relax, revive and renew.  Designed for self-renewal and administered by fully licensed spa therapists, guests may choose any combination of two treatments from among massage therapies, body scrubs, body wraps, spa facials or opt to customize their spa treatment for special needs.

Guided Hike to the Old Lighthouse. Set above a jaw-dropping stretch of sheer granite cliffs at the exact place where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean, the fortress-like lighthouse known as Faro Viejo is a worthy destination for a guided hike. Dating to 1905 and the oldest standing structure in Los Cabos, this National Historic Monument has been the inspiration for poets, painters and photographers.

Day Trip to Medano Beach. A two-mile crescent of sand lapped by calm waters, Medano Beach is THE place to relax in Cabo San Lucas. This protected beach, its waves rarely higher than knee level, is the best place for a relaxing swim in all of Los Cabos. Best of all, guests can access restaurants and services at Pueblo Bonito Los Cabos Beach Resort (a.k.a. Blanco) and Pueblo Bonito Rosé Resort & Spa.

The all-inclusive package is available starting $2,600 person (based on double occupancy), with accommodations in a deluxe room.  All-inclusive rates include all meals and beverages at the resort, as well as access to restaurants and bars at three sister properties in Cabo San Lucas. Taxes and gratuities are included in the package price.
