How to Hit Out of a Fairway Bunker with Alex Riggs and Elise Lobb-Dzingel

What’s worse than trying to get out of a greenside bunker? Fairway bunkers. With the release of our new PXG Sugar Daddy II Wedge, we asked PXG Ambassadors Alex Riggs and Elise Lobb-Dzingel to demonstrate a few useful swing techniques to get you out of the sand and closer to the pin.

PXG 0311 Sugary Daddy II Wedge offers unmatched performance and unrivaled consistency. With an all-new design and innovative engineering, the Sugar Daddy II is a force to be reckoned with.

What’s New About Sugar Daddy II?

Our PXG 0311 Sugary Daddy II brings new performance technology and aesthetic enhancements that will have your short game sharpened up in no time. Available in two gorgeous finishes, Chrome and Xtreme Dark – let’s check in to see what our new wedges have to offer.

Two Different Sole Options

With the Introduction of our new Sugar Daddy II Wedge, we now offer two sole options, the BP-Grind and the C-Grind.

BP-Grind: Designed for lush turf conditions, deep bunkers, and golfers with a steeper angle of attack. For the purposes of this test, you’ll see the BP-Grind powers through tough bunker lies like nobody’s business. The BP-Grind features a wider sole and a slight taper from heel to toe that produces higher bounce and maximum forgiveness.

C-Grind: Designed for firm and tight lies on the golf course. The C-Grind presents a narrow sole and aggressive tapered heel-to-toe design that allows skilled golfers to get creative around the green.

Full Face Grooves

There is no debate that catching a ball off the toe or heel is a shot we all unfortunately have in our bag of golf tricks. The full-faced, milled groove design on the 0311 Sugary Daddy II Wedge has made it possible for you to achieve more consistent ball contact and spin, even with off-center hits. With the milled grooves expanding to the perimeter of the face, you’ll feel greater confidence at address and enjoy improved results!

Precision Weighting Technology

The new Precision Weighting Technology presents swing weight adjustability during the PXG wedge fitting experience. The high toe weighting works to position the center of gravity (CG) in line with open face shots. This helps players to deliver greater impact consistency and overall forgiveness.

What’s Alex Wearing?

On Top - BP Signature Polo

Nothing says classic PXG style like our BP Signature Polo. Designed with PXG Founder Bob Parsons in mind, this perfect-fit polo features snap buttons, UPF50+, and side-vent detailing to give you a polished look in any setting. Getting out of those pesky fairway bunkers will never look better.

On Bottom - Essential Golf Pants

Your search for the perfect golf pants ends here. Our Essential Golf Pants offer the ideal fit and flex to keep you comfortable through afternoons on the course and on the go. Front and back pockets hold your essentials while the flat front and slightly tapered leg offer a classic, athletic look.

Accessories

No outfit is complete without some PXG accessories. Alex is rocking our PXG Faceted Logo 9Fifty LP Snapback Cap. Made with New Era’s Prolight material, this flat-billed cap is 25% lighter than traditional hats. It also wicks moisture and UV rays, helping you stay cool and dry on the course and everywhere. Available in three colors with a 3D silicone PXG logo for an extra pop of style.

What’s Elise Wearing?

On Top - RP Signature Polo

Suit up in chic PXG style with our RP Signature Polo - designed for PXG Apparel President Renee Parsons. The moisture-wicking, quick-dry, UPF 50+ fabric feels amazing on your skin, keeping you dry and fresh through 18 holes.

On Bottom - Logo Tape Skirt

A staple from our PXG Apparel Spring/Summer 2021 Collection, the flattering A-line sweep skirt has dual stash pockets and built-in biker shorts for extra comfort and versatility. Gear up for summer golf season by checking out our exciting new skirt styles. Be sure to check out our latest women’s skirts and golf dresses!

Accessories

Elise is accessorized in our Faceted Logo Sport Visor and Women’s Players Glove. PXG offers a variety of styles for those who prefer the visor look. Our Women's Players Glove offers a premium fit with the performance to match. The 100% AAA Cabretta leather is buttery soft, with an ultra-smooth feel that becomes tacky when wet to help you maintain your grip - especially in those tough bunker shots.
