PXG 0311 GEN5 woods are new for 2022 as part of the latest release from Parsons Xtreme Golf. How does the fifth generation clubs rate?

With its innovative and modern design, the new 0311 GEN5 fairway woods feature an updated face design to produce maximum ball speed and distance across the X and XF models.

With an emphasis on improving the moment of inertia (MIO) and forgiveness, PXG has gone above and beyond to answer the call.

The GEN5 series from PXG is joined by new drivers, hybrids and irons.

What PXG says about the GEN5 0311 fairway woods:

PXG 0311 GEN5 Fairways feature our most advanced technology and refined craftsmanship. GEN5 Fairways are a low-spin option for golfers of all skill levels.

Born from revolutionary engineering, these clubs deliver ideal launch, spin, and ball speeds to achieve impressive distance and accuracy from the tee box or the fairway.

“Made from a high-strength and lightweight AM355 steel, the clubhead body features a squared face design and a flat sole geometry that positions mass low and to the perimeter, delivering increased forgiveness.”

PXG 0311 GEN5 Woods Design & Features

With this innovative new series, PXG launched two separate models, the X, and XF, to allow golfers to highlight areas on their swing and produce more consistent and quality shots.

The design of the GEN5 fairways has three particular features that separate the two versions on the market: the head shape, the sole shape, and the clubface.

The head of the woods is very slightly different between models but delivers results that compliment your targeted swing.

The 0311 X targets an audience looking for low spin, while the 0311 XF is best suited to mid spin.

Both offer an increase in MOI, a whopping 30% increase over the previous generation of woods from PXG.

The design of this PXG’s sole has been built around controlling the clubhead’s center of gravity and stabilising overall forgiveness.

The 0311 X’s “flat sole” redistributes weight to the outside of the club to make it more forgiving while pushing the center of gravity down to make solid contact easier.

With the 0311 XF, a “railed sole geometry” carries the same benefits as the flat sole in the 0311 X, but it is intended for golfers with a steeper swing path.

When it comes to club face, the 0311 X offers a square design meant to provide a greater surface area on the face of the club for contact to occur. This additional surface area increases forgiveness which benefits golfers of all levels.

The 0311 XF takes this to the next level by increasing the overall size of the clubface. The additional coverage creates a bigger sweet spot, while maintaining a forgiving result.

The GEN5 fairway woods are available in 3-wood (16 degrees), 4-wood (17 degrees), 5-wood (19 degrees) and 7-wood (22 degrees) options.
