Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches

PGA National (Champion Course)



PXG 0311 Black Ops Tour-1

Why We Like It

This sleeker overall shape mixes forgiveness with an extra emphasis on low spin. Although the standard model spreads its adjustable weights to the extreme perimeter, this tour-level version shifts the heel and toe weights to a more forward position in the sole. Supported by lightweight carbon-composite panels on the crown and sole, a centered rear weight still adds forgiveness for mis-hits, and both the back weight and the forward sole weights sit at the level of the sole to lower the center of gravity for less spin. The new titanium alloy in the face produces higher launch and further reduces spin.
