Golf Today Northwest - - News -

The PXG golf club com­pany has been highly vis­i­ble lately with pro sign­ings, new TV ads, and new re­leases. The promi­nence has cer­tainly in­creased be­cause of sign­ings like Zack John­son, Pat Perez, Charl Schwartzel, Ryan Moore, Charles How­ell, and Billy Horschel. And on the women’s side, it doesn’t get bet­ter than hav­ing Rolex #1 Ly­dia Ko along­side Brit­tany Lang and Ryann O’toole. PXG clubs are not for the faint-hearted (es­pe­cially any­one who looks ner­vously at their credit card state­ment). And Ly­dia Ko’s new put­ter is no ex­cep­tion. The Bat At­tack of­fi­cially went into Ko’s bag in mid-april af­ter she’d played with a pro­to­type in the sea­son’s first tour­na­ments. The com­pany says that Ko ‘in­spired’ the de­sign. The ‘Bat’ in the ‘mod­i­fied’ mal­let head style comes from what look like wings on the head. They are pre­cisely 1.68 inches apart, or, the di­am­e­ter of a golf ball. To­gether with the aim­ing line, the wings also help in align­ment. They come in dif­fer­ent weights. The 350gram mod­els are made of stain­less steel, the heav­ier 470 and 500-gram mod­els are made of tung­sten – de­pend­ing on pref­er­ence. The milled face has a TPE insert for a bet­ter sound and con­sis­tent feel. The shaft has a dou­ble bend to it that cre­ates “a half-shaft of off­set.” Ac­cord­ing to PXG, it adds up to dis­tance con­trol even on mis­shits, higher MOI for less twist­ing, and a $550 price tag.
