PXG Sugar Daddy II Wedges Design & Feature
PXG have worked on honing the performance of the Sugar Daddy wedges and offering more control and spin in the second generation model.
The wedge head has been tweaked to have even more high toe weighting for forgiveness and feel, while improved turf interaction has been a key design element.
PXG have come up with two grind option in the 2022 Sugar Daddy wedges with the BP-Grind and the C-Grind to provide the solution to all types of golf swing and conditions.
The BP-Grind has a wider sole than the C-Grind and is more forgiving as a result. The BP sole also tapers marginally from heel to toe to add additional bounce.
The BP-Grind models are best suited to lush turf, deep bunkers and helps golfers with a steeper angle of attack get through the shot without losing speed.
The C-Grind has a more narrow sole, has an aggressive taper from heel to toe and is best suited to firmer condition with only moderate bounce in this model. It is designed for better golfers looking for more spin and check.
The wedges are 100% milled and have Full Face Grooves to increase the hitting area for more consistent ball striking and spin levels.
The wedges are available in Chrome and Xtreme Dark finishes and come in loft options from 50 degrees to 62 degrees.
