The next level of golf clubs
PXG is short for “Parsons Xtreme Golf“, so named by the founder Bob Parsons who started the venture in 2014. As a well-known American IT billionaire and golf freak, Bob Parsons set himself the goal to develop the best golf clubs of all time. He was tired of the continuous “innovations“ of common club makers and having to trust their extensive marketing ploys.
Driven by his goal to make the best golf clubs ever, he allowed a generous research and development budget to allow access to previously untouched materials in golf. More expensive materials facilitated true innovation, which, however, come at a significantly higher price than comparable golf clubs. Their slogan “Nobody makes golf clubs the way we do. Period.” underlines their commitment to using only the best materials and achieving unprecedented performance.
PXG Gen2 Irons
For the first, a synthetic material has been embedded in a cavity back with the following upsides:
- Enormous savings in swing weight allow for a redistribution of this weight to the outside and the bottom of the club face.
- The club face is extremely thin, causing a higher ballspeed and subsequently more total distance for the player.
- Moreover, a very soft feel is projected to the player through the synthetic cavity filling paired with a unique sound at impact. This enables the player to more accurately perceive feedback.
- The low center of gravity facilitates a high ball flight even with long irons. This is especially beneficial for more senior and slower swinging players.
- The highly adjustable and very soft allows loft and lie changes of more than 4°. Multiple significant changes are possible without any problems.
After 3 years of intensive research and development the Gen2 iron series has finally been released to the market. Presenting four different models categorised according to the thickness of the sole, the new series is suitable for all types of golfers. Moreover, combining the models into one set is possible as well!
PXG Gen2 Woods
In time with the Gen2 irons, PXG has also launched the new woods series ranging from drivers to hybrids. The driver comes in two different models – the X version focused on total distance and the XF for maximum forgiveness.
GEN2 0811 X Driver
The X model impresses with unforeseen ballspeeds and low back spin, which in combination facilitate maximum distance. The X’s unique characteristics are:
- athletic design with honeycomb-carbon technology for maximum distance
- the low and forward COG reduces backspin and promotes ballspeed and roll
- the weight of the head is adjustable up to 30g
- distribution of weight screws shifts the
point of gravity within seconds and combats both hooks and slices immediately.
- Lofts range between 7,5° to 13,5° available for RH & LH
GEN2 0811 XF Driver
The „Xtreme Forgiving“ XF model promises maximum forgiveness culminating in more fairway hits. This driver has the highest MOI we have ever seen, emphasising its focus on comfort, security and consistency. The X’s unique characteristics are:
- the carbon crown saves weight and allows an ideal distribution there of
- the screw system allows a weight shift of up to 16g
- the MOI value is perfectly matched with regulation allowance
- a huge range of lofts is available for RH & LH – 7,5° to 15,5°
- the honey comb inlay contributes to an extremely soft feeling at impact
GEN2 0341X Fairway
Fairway #2, #3, #5, #7 with lofts from 11,5° to 22,5° in RH & LH
The new fairway woods are suitable for hobby golfers as well as professionals. The wide loft range combined with the weight distribution screws allow significant adjustability regarding the desired ball flight. As with the drivers, PXG employs the carbon crown and honeycomb inlay, which boosts the fairway’s performance off the tee and from the grass. Typical for these new weapons are high ball flights with low spin rates.
GEN2 0317X Hybrid
For many hobby golfers probably the most essential golf club in the bag. The lofts range between 15,5° and 29,5°, which means that difficult to handle fairway woods and long irons are now redundant. The desired curvature can be promoted using the adjustable weights. The trademark characteristic of PXG – high ball flight with low spin, is engrained in the hybrid making high approaches to the green a regularity and no exception.
PXG Wedges & Putter
PXG already boasts a repertoire of over 10 different putter models available with various weights, angles and shaft configurations. A very high MOI makes the putters stable and forgiving.
Founder, genius and golf fanatic
Bob Parsons is the driver of the PXG brand. The billionaire and previous U.S. Marine Corp first established himself as an entrepreneur and visionary and later gained fame through his company GoDaddy. By now he has built himself an empire which he steers as CEO of his company YAM Worldwide, while simultaneously contributing to beneficial causes together with his wife. Parsons studied at the University of Baltimore and graduated with magna cum laude. In 2008 he received an honorary doctor title followed by the award as Distinguished Entrepreneur in 2010.
His first company was Parsons Technology, a software company that he founded in 1984 and sold 10 years later for 64 million US dollars to Intuit, Inc. Three years later he re-entered the entrepreneurial scene with GoDaddy, which is the largest Domain Name Registrar worldwide today. In 2011, he sold a majority shareholding at a company valuation of 2.3 billion US dollars.
As self-proclaimed golf fanatic, he ventured into the scene in 2014 by founding Parsons Xtreme Golf with the vision to design and produce the most exclusive and best performing golf clubs in the market. Sources reveal that Parsons spent up to 100,000 US dollars each year on golf clubs to test the innovations promised by the golf industry. At PXG, he granted his engineers access to the best materials as long as they developed golf clubs with superior performance. The development process was completely unrestricted, the premise being that each product was completed to perfection.
