The PXG One and Done putter is a modern mallet with bushels of forgiveness. A unique combination of alignment features. Solid feel.
As someone deeply immersed in the world of basketball, the phrase “One and Done” has a particular meaning for me. PXG’s latest putter may force me to update my definitions. This modern mallet uses bi-material construction to boost MOI and move the CG deep, all with the goal of making this putter automatic from any range.
The PXG One & Done is an attention getter from every angle. The tone is set by the headcover which bears a large Darkness Insignia. When you get to the putter, there’s something interesting whether you’re looking at the sole, the address position, or anywhere in between.
At address, there are a variety of alignment aids. This starts with a line on the putter’s top rail and continues to a white circle behind the face. The circle is flanked by parallel white lines. Overall, the look at address is that of the lovechild of a #7 and a PING Fetch.
Flip the putter over and you’ll find another Darkness Insignia and much more. Four adjustable weights surround the PXG and One & Done branding. The clean black/white/silver color scheme keeps the look from being overly busy.
Sound & Feel
The One and Done putter features an updated version of PXG’s Optimized Pyramid Face Pattern. This unique milling pattern seeks to keep ball speed and launch conditions consistent across the face. It also provides a very solid, satisfying feel at impact. Striking a urethane-covered ball creates a quiet “tock.”
Given that the mission of the One & Done is stability and forgiveness, it’s unsurprising that it offers minimal feedback. There is almost no change in impact sound regardless of how poorly you strike the ball. If you get far enough toward the heel or toe, you will feel it in your hands.
OEMs often talk about a club’s look inspiring confidence in the player. With the PXG One and Done putter, the feel and performance gave me confidence. This is simply one of the most stable-feeling putters I’ve ever swung. Every putt that I hit felt like it had nowhere to go but the bottom of the cup.
What makes this particularly noteworthy for me is that I’m a blade putter guy. When I test a mallet, I usually need some time to get comfortable with it and dial in distance control. With the One and Done, I was rolling nearly every putt hole-high from the start. I didn’t feel like I needed to baby the putter or smash it, having the right pace was automatic.
I credit a lot of the this “automatic” feel to the ability to dial in the toe hang. PXG’s most recent offerings – the Blackjack and the One & Done – put a premium on customization. I can’t think of any other mallets that offer three different necks/hosels plus adjustable weighting and an armlock variation. With the One and Done, you can choose from plumber’s neck (seen here), heel shafted, or double bend. This allows you to choose your optimal toe hang and offset.
Additionally, the One and Done features adjustable weighting. The stock weight of the One and Done varies from 360 grams to 405 grams, depending on the hosel/neck. Thanks to the four sole weights, that weight can be reduced by as much as 30 grams or boosted up to 40 grams. The full weight kit with wrench and eight weights costs $75 from PXG.
With the PXG One and Done putter, I felt like every putt was a gimme. The ability to customize the weight, toe hang, and offset on a putter this stable is a real performance advantage. If you need to up your game on the green, find a PXG fitter near you and dial in a One & Done.
