PXG Ambassador Travis Fulton dropped into PXG HQ in Scottsdale to check out our new PXG 0311 X GEN4 Driving Iron. Check out why course layout, weather conditions, and skill level may factor into your decision to add a driving iron to your bag.

What is a Driving Iron?

A driving iron, also known as a utility iron, is a long iron which is designed to replace the driver off the tee. Often driving irons are used when course conditions are less than ideal.

Designed for optimal distance, our PXG driving iron delivers:

  • Low spin
  • Low launch
  • Fast ball speeds
  • Penetrating ball flight
  • Tight dispersion
  • Optimum forgiveness
  • Outstanding feel & sound

What Are the Benefits of Playing a Driving Iron?

A reliable club for inconsistent conditions, our 0311 X GEN4 Driving Irons offer a tour-inspired design that produces a low, penetrating ball flight on narrow fairways and in adverse weather conditions. Players struggling with consistency when using their driver off the tee may find more control – and the fairway more often – with a driving iron in play.

The Technology Behind Our Newest Driving Iron

Packed with PXG’s most advanced technology to deliver accuracy and distance, this iron keeps shots in the middle and the ball in play.

At the heart of the iron, XCOR Technology – a highly compressible proprietary polymer material, delivering faster ball speeds and incredible sound and feel.

Inspired by the adjustability of our metal woods and putters, the integration of Precision Weighting Technology – the large weight located near the CG on the back of the clubhead – allows for optimal personalized performance. The weight can be adjusted in 2-gram increments during a fitting for golfers to experience various head weight configurations and dial in the fit to enhance their swing performance.
