Initial Thoughts on PXG 0211

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I ordered my PXG 0211's on April 15th and received them on Thursday, April 30th.  There was also a Gen 1 Mustang putter in the box (couldn't pass up for $95).  I cam from Mizuno JPX 800 Pro irons to the 0211.  I'm a 14 handicap.  What plagues my game is consistency.  I have shot a 38 on the front nine and followed it up with a 48 on the back 9.  My first round under 100 started with a 57 on the front (41 on the back).  With that in mind, my goals for new irons were a little workability for days when I'm playing like I have clue and forgiveness on my bad days when I'm landscaping.  I'll give my impressions on how the new sticks compare with my old ones.

Looks:

    I was totally impressed with the appearance of these clubs.  One thing I noticed was the progressive nature of the set, both in terms of shaft length and in offset.  The 4-iron had noticeably more offset than the Mizunos.  The offset in the mid irons and wedges was very similar.  The lines of the club flowed well.  I don't like a lot of offset in my irons, and the 4-iron, while having noticeable offset, didn't distract me at all.  I think the 0211s present a very clean look.

Sound:

    For me, these irons sound great.  There's a bit of a click at impact with a well-struck ball.  I liked it.

Feel:

    Coming from Mizuno irons, I was surprised that a cast club could feel this good.  I hit a 5-iron to a 190-yard pin, and it literally felt like butter.  As soon as I hit it, I said, "that has to be the sweet spot!"  I don't think I gave up anything in the feel department switching from Mizuno JPX to these.

Forgiveness:

  What can I say, I mess up on the course....a lot.  I've been working on ball positioning which affects grip placement, etc.  Caught one off the toe and thought I was screwed.  I lost maybe 10 to 15 yards.  yes, they passed the forgiveness criteria for me.

Distance:

    The 4-iron is about 1/3" longer than my old 4.  The lengths in the mid and short irons are virtually identical.  Even with the slightly stronger lofts, I'm getting higher ball flight and more distance (in the 5+ yard area).

Overall Impression:

   In total, I'm pleased with my purchase.  I was considering ordering Callaway Apex's through their preowned site for roughly the same price (more when you factor in lie angle adjustments and shaft extensions).  Glad I went the route I did.  While I wish I could go christen them at the range, they received a COVID-19 induced battlefield commission.  I shot an 88 with my wedges on strike for the day.  Essentially, these are staying in the bag.  I attached a few comparison photos.  Mizunos are on the left, 0211's on the right.  My ability to balance clubs on my shoulder while taking photos needs some work.

Congrats on the new purchase. For that price it’s a smoking deal and I hope they work well!

Do it!  Do it now!!! (in my Arnold voice)  My Mizunos have the Dynalite Gold XP (I think).  My 0211s have the Elevate 95 shaft in stiff flex.  I used to be a strictly Dynamic Gold player (woods and irons) until back surgery changed my whole outlook on golf.  A little help getting the ball higher works for me.

I like the look of these irons the best of all of their offerings because of the lack of screw weights (coming from someone who games the 0811X driver!). Are these your first hollow-bodied clubs? How did the short irons perform?

These are my first hollow bodied irons.  I can honestly say I've had too many irons over the years.  I started playing golf in 1996.  In 24 years, I had the Mizuno's in the bag for 9 years.  Before that, I went through at least 7 sets of irons that I can remember (none hollow bodied).  The only thing that might come close to hollow body is the Callaway Fusion I had years ago.  Short irons performed great.  High trajectory, soft feel.  The only issue I had was grabbing an 8 when I should have grabbed a 7 into the wind.
