Why We Like It

A thinner, stronger metal in the face typically means faster ball speed. PXG’s engineers believe the new steel alloy—yet to be named—in this hybrid’s face improves ball speed and more. The face is 10.5 percent thinner, but it also produces a higher launch angle with less spin. Combining faster ball speed and better launch conditions is a recipe for distance and, as it turns out, tighter dispersion. That’s some alloy. Maybe PXG should call it Something Else.

How To Use Your Hybrid Effectively

Most amateurs don’t swing fast enough to make their long irons go farther than their middle irons, so hybrids are essential for longer shots into greens. Plus, the hybrid’s design adds forgiveness and playability. Here, Cameron McCormick demonstrates how to use these clubs effectively.
