Singapore: MST Golf has officially launched the new PXG 0311 GEN2 Irons in Singapore.
Among those in attendance at the gathering at Marina Bay Golf Course were Tatsuro Oshimoto, PXG Japan and Asia, Sales and Operations Manager, and Ng Yap and KP Low, Founders and Directors of MST Golf.
PXG, the luxury performance golf equipment company that disrupted industry norms with its bold approach to product development, unveiled the new generation of iron technology recently in America.
The launch event also saw the appointment of Lam Chih Bing as PXG Brand Ambassador. Lam, who retired from playing professionally in 2016, had 16 professional wins, including the Volvo Masters of Asia in 2008. He played in three Open Championships and remains the only Singaporean to have made the cut in a Major championship.
He is now a Senior Client Advisor with a major local bank and still very active in the golfing circle. Lam was presented with a full set of PXG clubs which consist of Driver, Fairway Woods, Hybrid, Irons, Wedges and putter by Dato Loh Ah Joo, Chairman of MST Golf Singapore, and Oshimoto.
“They feel amazing and are incredibly consistent. The difference is noticeable,” said Lam on his new GEN2 Irons. “I would like to thank Dato Loh and MST Golf to link me to PXG. I only wish I had these clubs during my playing career,” he added.
“We are very pleased and excited to launch PXG’s Gen 2 irons and to announce MST Golf as PXG’s Official Distribution Partner for Singapore and Philippines. We are also delighted to have Chih Bing joining our family as PXG Brand Ambassador which brings together the finest golfer in Singapore with the world’s finest golf clubs,” said Dato Loh.
“We are very confident PXG will do very well in Singapore and I wish to echo PXG’s tagline ‘Nobody Makes Clubs the Way We Do. Period’,” he added.
Custom fitted ‘to deliver unrivalled performance and feel’, PXG 0311 GEN2 Irons are available at MST Golf Tech Shop at Marina Bay Golf Course Driving Range and MST Golf Superstore at Suntec City.
Three years in the marking, PXG 0311 GEN2 Irons improve on PXG’s clubs ‘in every measureable way’.
In 2015, PXG introduced its ground-breaking original 0311 iron technology. The company had 12 employees and a single vision – develop the world’s finest golf equipment. Today, PXG has more than 170 employees and a global footprint, but its vision has not shifted.
With performance as PXG’s only measure for success, the company took its time and left nothing on the table in the development of its GEN2 Irons. Through innovations in materials, technology and customisations, PXG 0311 GEN2 Irons deliver better turf interaction, greater distance, faster ball speeds, higher launch and improved accuracy.
“It is a tall task creating a club that is better than the best, but that is our commitment,” said Oshimoto, quoting PXG Founder and CEO Bob Parsons. “PXG would never release a new club that is not notably better than what we currently offer. We believe PXG GEN2 Irons set a new standard for the world’s finest.”
Forged from 8620 soft carbon steel, for enhanced aesthetics and durability over time, PXG 0311 GEN2 Irons have the sleek look of a blade and a buttery-soft feel. Each club also features a hidden cavity injected mould with new COR2 Technology, a proprietary vibration dampening material cut-out explosive C.O.R. (coefficient of restitution) properties.
Combined with PXG’s new internal face perimeter cut-out design, COR2 Technology helps deliver higher ball speeds, a more consistent response, outstanding mis-hit performance, unmatched accuracy, and longer distance. To maximise performance and deliver extreme forgiveness, PXG 0311 GEN2 Irons also utilise the world’s thinnest club face and PXG’s signature perimeter weighting technology.
Designed to meet the needs of golfers regardless of age, gender or ability, PXG 0311 GEN2 Irons are available in four collections – Tour (T), Players (P), Xtreme Forgiveness (XF), and Super Game Improvement (SGI).
The four models deliver exceptional custom fitting options and unmatched performance. The addition of Super Game Improvement irons to the 0311 line-up ensures that PXG GEN2 Irons meet the needs of golfers at every level, from those who need the most help to highly-skilled Tour professionals.
