On this episode Gabe and Wade take a trip to the desert, in particular the Scottsdale, Arizona desert. The guys rent a classic American muscle car and head off on their adventure. The trip really happened from a speaking engagement Gabe had, but why not mix some business with pleasure right?! In addition to playing Troon North, Gabe visits the PXG headquarters where he gets fitted for a new set of irons.
Troon North is one of the most iconic golf properties in Scottsdale. The entire area is scattered with some of the best desert golf in the world, and combined with resort accommodations this is an incredible destination to play golf. There are two courses on the property – Pinnacle and Monument, on this occasion the guys tackled the Pinnacle course. In the winter months the course plays firm and fast, and we find out that unless your ball is coming in soft you may not find yourself hitting too many greens. Add the gusty wind into the mix and you’re gonna be hard pushed to find a harder test of golf.
The PXG Scottsdale location is state of the art with club fitting bays and analytical swing software. There is a putting lab, and a store to buy a range of PXG products. Gabe spends some time in the fitting bay where he tries the Gen 3 irons and gets fit with one of their master fitters.
