Originalmente publicado:
09/12/2021

If you’re new to the game or returning to golf after a break, there’s nothing worse than those first tee nerves and fairway jitters. Not knowing how far or where that ball is going to land can be incredibly frustrating. Golf is hard, but PXG has you covered with golf equipment built to enhance your swing and your love of the game! 

For golfers new to the game, we have two exceptional club options in our PXG 0211 Z Clubs , our Xtreme Forgiveness (Woods), and Xtreme Performance (Irons) line ups.

Which Golf Irons Suit Players With Slow Swing Speed?

GOLF DRIVERS FOR BEGINNERS AND OCCASIONAL GOLFERS

Crush your tee shot with a PXG driver. 

For players with a slower swing speed, our PXG 0211 Z Driver is the perfect pairing to help you find the fairway.

The 0211 Z Driver is optimized to provide effortless launch and distance off the tee. With 16 degrees of loft, this driver is engineered for fun! Check out golfing legend Gary Player’s review of the 0211 Z Driver.

Did you know that beginner or occasional golfers don’t necessarily have a slow swing speed? 

For players who typically hit a driver over 200 yards but need a little extra forgiveness, our PXG Fitting Specialists may recommend the PXG 0811 XF Driver.

The 0811 XF (Xtreme Forgiveness) features a larger profile head design than the GEN4 X or XT models to help build confidence at address. This driver is optimized for outstanding distance and exceptional forgiveness.

0211 Z vs. 0811 XF Driver Specifications

FAIRWAY WOODS AND HYBRIDS FOR BEGINNERS AND OCCASIONAL GOLFERS

For effortless distance and higher ball flight, put the 0211 Z Fairway Woods and Hybrid Golf Clubs in your bag. 

The PXG 0211 Z Fairway makes it easy to get the ball in the air. With a low-profile head shape and a squared face design these clubs deliver maximum ball speed even on mishits.

When you find yourself in a tricky lie call on our PXG 0211 Z Hybrid! This shot saver delivers maximum forgiveness no matter your lie. Featuring a low-profile head shape, squared face design, and larger face area that inspires confidence from address through contact.

So how do these two options stack up against our GEN4 0341 XF and 0317 XF Fairways and Hybrids?

The real differences come down to loft options, adjustability of the head and the depth of the shaft matrix.  For full adjustability and a shaft matrix which includes exotic shafts, the GEN4 Fairways and Hybrids provide an exceptional option.

Overall, the 0211 Z Fairways and Hybrids will provide more height and greater forgiveness while the GEN4 options can be fully dialed in to your unique swing for optimal launch, distance, and, of course, extreme forgiveness.

OUR BEST IRONS FOR BEGINNERS

If you’re a beginner or an occasional golfer seeking an incredibly easy to hit iron – look no further.

Designed for those new to the game or the occasional golfer, PXG 0211 Z Hybrid-Irons offer a unique, hollow-bodied construction that incorporates the distance-producing technology of a hybrid and the trajectory of an iron. Win win, right?!

0211 Z Hybrid-Irons are PXG’s highest flying, easiest to hit, most forgiving golf irons yet.

"PXG 0211 Z IRONS ARE CRAZY, INSANE, BONKERS FORGIVING!"— PLUGGED-IN GOLF

Much like our drivers, PXG Fitting Specialists recommend that those with a slow swing speed test out these incredible new hybrid-irons through a golf club fitting (yes, even beginners can and should get fitted for clubs). For players with a faster swing speed, more power, or for those who prefer a more traditional looking iron, then our PXG 0311 XP (Xtreme Performance) Irons present an excellent option

"THE PERFECT BLEND OF PLAYABILITY AND FORGIVENESS." – GOLFWRX.COM

Our flagship PXG 0311 XP Irons are packed with game-changing technology and made for golfers seeking exceptional forgiveness and maximum distance to help lower their scores.

Here’s the shaft flex you should play based on your swing speed

During a PXG custom fitting, your PXG Fitting Specialist will use TrackMan® to measure and assess your swing speed accurately.

Driver Carry Distance Swing Speed Flex
Under 200 yards Under 75 mph Ladies or Senior
200 to 240 yards 75 to 95 mph Regular
240 to 275 yards 95 to 110 mph Stiff
Over 275 yards Over 110 mph Extra Stiff

 

In general terms, the faster the swing, the stiffer the shaft required. At higher speeds, the shaft will deflect more. Our goal during a fitting is to find a shaft that matches your swing and delivers the clubhead in a proper and consistent orientation at impact.

How many clubs does a beginner golfer need?

Beginner golfers rarely need the full complement of fourteen clubs. Low handicap players tend to utilize more wedges and gap their bag more precisely than is necessary for a new golfer.

PXG Fitting Specialists and our PXG National Staffers recommend around ten clubs for those starting out in the game – making the 0211 Z Golf Clubs, the ideal starter golf set for new players or for those with a slow swing speed.
