Many golfers these day are aware of being fitted for drivers, irons and even wedges but finding a putter to suit your mechanics and eye is like a needle in a hey stack. You might find a head that suits your eye and stroke but the neck prevents you from lining the ball up correctly and its not weighted right. PXG have tried something new with their latest GEN2 milled putters with eight models, three hosel positions and two finishes plus weights. Call it mix and match but you can tinker with ease to find a setting that works… that’s until you miss your first three footer! But we all know the truth of a bad putt is down to stroke mechanics. Though if you are a bad putter you might as well have one that looks good in the bag.

The putter model in conjunction with the hosel chosen – whether double bend, plumber’s neck, or heel shafted – will dictate the overall assembled mass. Large sole weights made of heavier tungsten and lighter titanium also influence club head weight and bias. These weights, offered in 5g, 10g, 15g, and 20g options, are easily adjustable for optimal performance.
“Putts account for roughly 40 percent of shots taken, yet only a small percentage of golfers make an effort to be properly fitted,” PXG founder and CEO Bob Parsons shared. “We’re working to change that stat. With the release of our exceptional new PXG GEN2 Putters, we are committed to helping golfers dial-in their preferred putter to help shave strokes off their score.”
“When I was fitted for my PXG putter I tried various weights, hosels, lengths, and head shapes before settling on my specs,” said golf legend and PXG ambassador Gary Player. “I now play the new PXG GEN2 Brandon with a plumber’s neck. It’s been a long time since I have been this comfortable with a putter.”
PXG GEN2 Putters also present an innovative, new variable-sized, pyramid face pattern that offers gripping benefits. The small pyramid structures bite into the golf ball cover to create more consistent launch and roll characteristics, as well as an improved feel and sound.
The size of the pyramids varies across the putter face with the highest pattern density around the center. This is designed to offset ball speed loss typically experienced on mishits, ultimately leading to more consistent distance control across the entire face.
With innovative new technology in each blade, mid-mallet and mallet, PXG GEN2 Putters offer the variety, versatility and performance to meet the demands of golfers at every level of the game.
