[REVIEW] PXG 0311T Sugar Daddy 100% Milled Wedge

Recommended Posts

I've not seen anyone review those anywhere on the net so I thought I'll bite the bullet and do it myself.

If you have any questions - just ask.
 
As you know, with PXG price is a bit of an issue. Those will cost you £695-1100 in the UK per wedge.
Whenever or not someone wants to pay it, afford it, sees value for money is up to the individual and I won't be discussing it here.
 
As long as you're comfortable with being called a Sugar Daddy it's a pretty nice looking head.

You can see that there has been no expense spared in making of this club. 
The finish is much more matte than the 0311, the deep grooves on the bounce are reminiscent of a mix between white gold and Damascus steel.

As far as I'm aware those are the _only_ 100% milled wedges, and the quality just shows.
 
Anyway - I got it as a ‘lower' bounce option for when I play courses with a lot of tight lies, and having played it for the first time yesterday… It does feel different. 
I didn't have the time to check it out on my launch monitor but the ball has more spin. 
 
My ball bit the green and rolled back about 3 feet. It never happened to me before to get so much backspin.
 
The feeling is a little bit more ‘solid' than the previous PXG wedges. It's super easy to open a little bit with the grind. The feel is so buttery soft.
And it played awesome. I've hit pitch shots, lob shots and out of bunkers. It worked so well that if I was to choose - I'd keep the Sugar Daddy in 56 vs a 54 + 58 in the 0311.
 
I play my 54 as 3/4 shot from 75y and the 56 was still spot on. On the short game practice area I've hit 20 balls from 70/50/20 yards over a bunker and most of my balls were dancing nicely on the green, with mostly being within 3 feet.
 
My only problem with it, as with all the PXG clubs - they show use instantly.

I mean instantly. 
They get dinged up, rust etc… but I guess thats what you have to deal with when you get such soft steel.
 
And the difference in colour between the 0311 and 0311T wedge is annoying too, as I have the whole PXG bag and it just looks annoying to have 1 different wedge :)

Anyway - as far as wedges go - those are brilliant and a solid **4.75/5**

CoG with almost all wedges is towards the heel.  Natural tendency for better players is to "miss" heelside with a wedge

All of the CoG's in my bag must be towards heel then. Yep, that's what I'm gonna tell myself

 

Jokes aside, I had no idea about that... I've tried in practice so hard to strike the middle, and I can do it when I think and concentrate, but on the course it always seems to be heel side of center.

 

edit: got off track -- nice wedge brah

As in balls that are on the range and are topflite harness? Yea.

Yeh, make sure they are at least washed before you hit them. I took a large chunk out my cast cobra wedges with range balls. I imagine forged irons would get eaten up with those.

* I personally didn't make sure they were washed. It is a sandy range, so here I am.

Yeah, think they always are washed at the ranges I use... The biggest pain for me was sand bunkers with a ton of stones. But I got used to living with dinged up clubs. What can you do. When they will look absolutely shite I may send them off to get refinished

Trying to figure out the exchange rate here... Did you say £1100?

 

Anyways- did you feel the milling on the rear of the bounce helped get through cleanly? That certainly looks interesting.

 

Thanks for the write-up!

Were you fitted for them?

 

With that amount of wear from one range session, how long do you think that it will last? I'd hope that at £650-1000 you'd get at least 2 years out of it.

 

I'll be interested to see how well performance is maintained as they wear.

 

Let us know you score better with them. Did your scoring improve when you changed to your previous PXG wedges?

Their pricing is like Apple; £1100 in UK translates to $1100 in the US.

Hey, don't think you can get them without a fitting.

 

3 range sessions + a game, so ~600 hits or so. With the 0311 wedges I've been using them for about a year and a half; but as you can see from the last pic the club is beat up. And on that one I get about 7500-8000spin with half shot (55yards or so) and around 11k on a full 105yards. And the number have not dropped even with the wear.

 

And with improving scores - it's hard to say. They did improve with I moved to PXG in general. But then again I'm spending at least 4h a week with a coach. So how much was it due clubs vs coaching (i'd put my money on the latter) - it's hard to calculate.

 

Same with the wedges - as now 95% of the time with a coach is spent not further than 120 yards from the green.

 

 

Br,

How was it getting through the rough compared to your old wedges?  That was the main reason I went with the Ping Glide 2.0.

What do you mean rough? As in you're suggesting I'm not hitting the fairway every time? :) 

 

They're ok. But so where my old wedges tbh. Nothing to complain about. But its quite rare for me to go for a high lofted wedge in the rough anyway.

      Selling a perfect set of 5-GW (7 total) Recoil F2 460 Series Iron Shafts .370 Parallel Tip professional pulled from a set of PXG 0311 irons.  The F2 flex designation is Senior or "A" Flex.  The grips are PXG branded Pure Pro grips and are almost brand new in condition.  
         
       
      The 5 iron shaft measures 37.25" from grip cap to shaft tip.  The Pure Grips have a grip cap that measures 1/4" so the graphite shaft will measure 37" without a grip.  The 5 iron measured 38.25" when shafted.  Each shaft decreases in length 1/2" (6 iron is 1/2" less than 5 iron shaft, etc).  Specs from the UST website are listed below:  
       
         
       
      Description Flex Weight Torque Launch Butt OD Tip OD Tip Parallel Length Recoil 460 F2 A 63g 5.2° High 0.596" 0.370" 5.5" 41"  
       
         
       
      Description from the website:  
       
         
       
      Finally, a revolutionary technology that will change how you think about iron shafts. UST Mamiya's new recoil iron shafts are a game changer. In the past, heavy weight graphite iron shafts felt dead and stiff. With UST Mamiya's exclusive recoilâ„¢ technology, we have brought feel back into the shaft, while allowing players to hit a wide range of shots that result in better distance control and pin seeking accuracy.   
       
         
       
      By positioning over 19 different layers within the shaft, we were able to create a design that outperforms the best steel shafts in the market.   
       
         
       
      I would be happy to provide pictures on request.  SOLD

      (4) TESTERS Wanted Cleveland RTX 4 Wedges
      If you do something once and it works well, then why not do it a second, third and now even a fourth time?  Makes sense right?  Well that must be what the club designers at Cleveland Golf think.  A company that knows a thing or two about wedges, has stuck with a successful formula in the RTX line.  Without changing the by now well known RTX name, Cleveland has certainly added what it feels are some enhancements to make the wedge even better than before.   
      What are those changes and how do they perform?  Well that's where four trusted forum members will come in, as they will be chosen to test, review and keep two wedges in the RTX 4 lineup.  You will be able to choose which two lofts you would like to test and which of the three finishes you'd like.
