GOLF+ invites golfers to step onto the virtual course with just released PXG 0311 Gen6 golf clubs
Scottsdale, AZ (March 27, 2023) – New PXG GEN6 Golf Clubs have launched simultaneously in real life and virtual reality. Through an innovative partnership, PXG’s new flagship line of blazing fast, beyond forgiving, and beautifully made golf clubs are now available in GOLF+, the ultimate virtual reality (VR) golf experience and the exclusive VR Golf game of the PGA TOUR developed by Golf Scope Inc.
“We are thrilled that GOLF+ will be the first VR platform to feature the highly-anticipated PXG GEN6 golf clubs on the same day as their real-world release. Whether you're a seasoned player or just starting out, our virtual environment provides an immersive and accessible way to experience the latest groundbreaking release from the PXG team,” said GOLF+ president James Wright.
The exciting collaboration expands the opportunity for golfers to experience and enjoy PXG’s new technology. PXG customers who purchase GEN6 Golf Clubs will enjoy complimentary access to the GEN6 lineup, while gamers can redeem tokens to buy the new high-performance clubs in the VR game.
PXG Chief Product Officer Brad Schweigert shared, “it is very cool to see our club designs come to life in VR! The entire GOLF+ environment feels incredibly lifelike, and I am very impressed with the amount of detail and realistic look of our PXG GEN6 Golf Clubs. The VR game is loads of fun, which pairs perfectly with our mission to help increase people’s enjoyment of golf on and off the course.”
To celebrate the launch of PXG GEN6 Golf Clubs, GOLF+ is hosting a weeklong digital challenge for Meta Quest 2 users starting today, March 27, 2023. The challenge consists of nine non-traditional Par 3 layouts, taking players through their entire bag from Pitching Wedge through Driver on iconic courses including TPC Scottsdale and Sawgrass. The top 26 finishers (26 signifying the 26th Marine Corps Regiment that PXG founder Bob Parsons served with during the Vietnam War) will receive a full set of GEN6 Golf Clubs in the game, and the overall winner will receive a custom fitting and full set of PXG 0311 GEN6 Golf Clubs for on-course play.
PXG GEN6 Irons - available in Players (P) and Xtreme Performance (XP) models – are the longest, most forgiving irons PXG has ever released. PXG 0311 P® GEN6 Irons provide an ideal balance of workability and forgiveness. These irons, designed for low to mid-handicap players, feature moderate offset and a mid-size head design with a clean aesthetic. Designed for mid to high-handicap players, PXG 0311 XP® GEN6 Irons feature a larger head with more offset to deliver an incredibly soft feel, extreme distance performance, and excellent forgiveness.
Engineered to deliver incredible forgiveness, maximum distance, and tight dispersion, PXG 0311 GEN6 Drivers are available in two models to suit golfers at all levels. The 0311 GEN6 Driver features a traditional teardrop head shape with a notably curved crown structure and a shorter body from front to back. The tall/deep clubface is designed to support excellent mishit performance, especially on higher face impacts. The 0311 XF® GEN6 Driver has a larger head profile and a more symmetrical shape than its counterpart. This makes it easier to square the face at impact, delivering the ideal blend of distance and forgiveness.
PXG 0311 GEN6 Fairways have an innovative low profile with a flat sole suitable for players of all abilities. These easy-to-launch fairways provide maximum distance, tight dispersion off the tee or turf, and a fantastic sound and feel. PXG 0311 XF GEN6 Fairways are engineered for golfers seeking maximum forgiveness. The large, squared face expands the hitting zone to provide off-center hit forgiveness leading to faster ball speeds with greater distance. The Railed Sole helps the club move effortlessly through the turf so golfers can get the ball up in the air and down the fairway.
