James Hahn claimed PXG’s first PGA Tour triumph at the weekend and he did so with a set of new irons in the bag.
Hahn had missed eight straight cuts going into the Wells Fargo Championship but a new bag set-up appeared to be the catalyst for his win.
According to PXG’s Matt Rollins, Hahn played for the first time this week with a set of irons built with no grinds and new Project X LZ 6.5 shafts.
We’ve previously detailed the PXG 0811X prototype driver Hahn has been using since the RBC Heritage, but what we hadn’t seen before was Hahn’s stamping on his wedges. Absolutely genius!
Great win by a great guy @JamesHahnPGA pic.twitter.com/2zKxS3jEE9

Nike & Rodgers get personal
Rory McIlroy isn’t the only Nike staffer to get his golf balls personalised. Patrick Rodgers has them, too. Rodgers revealed his new custom Nike RZN Platinum ball on Twitter last week and his college golf team – Stanford Cardinal – inspired the design.
