As PXG’s club offering has grown, customers are provided a wider selection not only in terms of technology and aesthetics, but in price point too.

With more head types, come more decisions. To help you make an informed choice when selecting your preferred PXG Irons, we’ve compiled a guide to help you check out the differences between our iron generations and their head types.

High Performing Golf Irons - Customized to Suit Your Game

PXG presents an amazing selection of high-performance golf irons, customized to fit each golfer’s unique swing. From our fully loaded GEN4 Irons to our 0211 DualCOR Irons, there’s a wide range of clubheads and styles designed to achieve your goals.

  • 0311 GEN4 – Quite simply, the best irons we’ve ever made and, possibly, the best irons ever made by anyone.

PXG 0311 GEN4 Irons - Personalized Performance

Released in 2021, PXG GEN4 Irons introduce our proprietary new XCOR Technology. The result of a multi-year research and development project, XCOR was engineered specifically for use in PXG's GEN4 Iron lineup. The material is incredibly soft and has high C.O.R., supporting more face movement and a colossal sweet spot. Coupled with PXG's ultra-thin face – the thinnest in golf – GEN4 Irons offer a powerful combination of unbelievable forgiveness, explosive distance, and an incredible sound and feel.

Made from 8620 soft carbon steel, GEN4's complex body geometry requires separate forgings using five unique sets of tooling and five hits to form each part. The clubhead's back surface is then CNC milled to create an exact, thin-walled, high-performance body design.

GEN4 Irons also integrate new Precision Weighting Technology. The sizeable adjustable weight located near the CG on the back of the clubhead allows golfers to quickly and easily experience various head weight configurations during a fitting.

With three head designs – Xtreme Performance, Players, and Tour – PXG is taking personalized performance to the absolute extreme to ensure golfers at every level of the game get the most out of their irons.

PXG 0311 GEN3 Irons - The Ultimate Game Changer

Powered by our Patented Impact Reactor Technology and the world’s thinnest club face, these 5-times forged then milled irons are the ultimate game changer.

PXG 0311ST Iron

PXG 0311 ST Irons - A Pure Tour Blade

Designed to support the needs of advanced golfers, 0311 ST Irons deliver lower launch, higher spin, and more control while surprisingly easy to hit.

A pure tour blade, 0311 ST Irons feature PXG's signature Perimeter Weighting Technology, a narrow sole design, and compact blade length. These attributes support the performance characteristics desired by better players.

Each clubhead is NiCr plated for corrosion resistance and presents an anti-glare finish to eliminate distractions at address.

Triple-forged billet of 8620 soft carbon steel, the strong, yet "soft" alloy helps prolong the life of the grooves and enhances the appearance of the irons over time. Using a CNC mill, every surface, curve, and angle are produced to exacting specifications for consistent performance and advanced shot-making.

Available Lofts: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, W

Current selling price: $295/club*

 
PXG 0211ST Iron

PXG 2021 0211 ST Irons - The Ultimate in Club Control

Ideal for better golfers looking for the ultimate in club control at a killer price – our PXG 2021 0211 ST Irons are triple forged, solid-body blade irons that provide exceptional feel and workability in a clean blade design.

"We couldn't help it. We had to see if we could develop a pure tour blade that packs a punch at a killer price tag," said PXG Founder and CEO Bob Parsons. "Good enough for the tour, but designed for the average Joe, 0211 ST Irons feel as good as they look and perform like a car on rails."

Even though 2021 0211 ST Irons are blades by design, the mass's strategic repositioning throughout the clubhead results in an increased overall moment of inertia (MOI). A tapered sole and back-bottom flange design add mass towards the toe side of the clubhead, while additional material is removed from the upper mid-section and repositioned to the high toe. These strategic attributes make 0211 ST Irons surprisingly forgiving for a solid-bodied blade.

Available Lofts: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, W, G

Current selling price: $119/club*

 

 

 

PXG 0211 DC Irons - Precision and Distance for Golfers of Every Skill

PXG 0211 Irons deliver extreme precision and insane distance for golfers at every skill level.

We cut our margins to the bone on these incredible golf clubs to give everyone a reason to experience PXG's killer patented technology.

Lineup of PXG 2021 0211 DualCOR Irons

 

Unique to the 0211 line is the progressive set design. A progressive offset makes it easy to square up the iron's face, and a progressive bounce helps the clubhead glide through the turf. An angled top rail positions the CG closer to the clubface's center, high MOI, more forgiveness, and excellent consistency.

Made from 431 stainless steel and powered by PXG's proprietary DualCOR System (the same system as found in our GEN3 Irons).

Available Lofts: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, W, G, S, L

Current selling price: $89/club*
