Enter Andres Victoriano a certified True Spec fitter at the company’s shop at Trump National Doral Miami who gave Montoro a custom fitting and made a couple of interesting changes to his bag including swapping a hybrid for one of his long irons and getting him into a new iron model altogether to combat his spin.
The most notable design feature of the new 0311 iron line is COR2 a proprietary polymer core material that’s 20% faster than the original filler material yielding more ball speed accuracy and consistency with the same outstanding feel PXG irons are known for. The new irons feature more of the material than in the past as well as an extremely thin maraging steel clubface improving performance across the board.
“Joseph had lots of speed but was playing stock lightweight stiff-flex shafts in his irons and stock stiff shafts in his hybrid and woods. His miss with his irons was a push to the right no doubt exacerbated by his iron shafts being too soft and not stable enough for his speed and the way he loaded the club.
