PXG Debuts New Putter Line

Five models highlight extensive offering

Although PXG has received plenty of media exposure for its equipment and tour staff signings, its product introductions have been fairly minimal (by design) over the past year. That changed today with the introduction of an extensive putter line that brings five new head shapes and several models in two finishes (chrome and black).

Each of the five models—Brandon, Dagger, Drone, Gunboat and Mustang—feature bodies milled from 303 stainless steel and aircraft-grade aluminum. Similar to the company’s irons and woods, they incorporate titanium and heavier tungsten weights that allow for head weight to be adjusted during a fitting. The weights also have been placed in a manner so that they can assist with alignment. As with its irons, the company is using thermoplastic elastomer (along with a 304 stainless steel face) to enhance feel.

The Brandon is a blade-style putter with plumber’s neck hosel that creates a full-shaft of offset and mid-hang angle. The Brandon S is a face-balance version with a single-bend shaft that creates a full shaft of offset while the Brandon H is a heel-shafted model with a full shaft of offset and a straight toe-down hang angle.

The Dagger comes in toe hang and face balance (Dagger C) and is a classic blade style with no offset. The Drone is a high moment-of-inertia mallet available in heel shaft as well as center shaft models and is designed for players with a straight back and straight through stroke.

The Gunboat is an extremely high MOI mallet-style putter with a single-bend shaft that creates a full-shaft of offset and a face-balanced hang angle. The Gunboat comes in 370-gram and 400-gram versions.

A less-traditional blade is the Mustang, which features extreme heel-toe weighting. The putter is available with toe hang or in the face-balanced S and C versions.

All of the putters come standard with 3 degrees of loft and a 70-degree lie angle. Price for each is $500.
