Does PXG have a new golf ball up its sleeve?

Published

on

Based on a photo posted to Twitter and in our forums on Wednesday, new golf equipment company PXG may be getting into the golf-ball game, as well.

As the photo suggests, PXG has a least one golf ball in existence, called the “Tour X6” if labeling on the ball is any indication.

Of course, expanding into golf balls would be no surprise for the equipment company that’s run by Bob Parsons, whose business plan seems to revolve solely around making the best products his company can, regardless of cost. After all, he admitted to spending more than $250,000 per year on his own golf equipment in an attempt to improve his game.

If Parsons plans on releasing PXG golf balls to the market, they would join the retail equipment stable at PXG that currently includes drivers, woods, hybrids, irons, wedges and putters, most of which already have a presence on the PGA Tour.

Questions to ponder: Will the PXG golf balls follow suit for the company and be ultra expensive? What other equipment does PXG have next on the horizon? Does the golf ball have tungsten screws in its core?

See what GolfWRX members are saying about the golf ball photo in our forums.

Update: According to a PXG representative, the company has no plans to enter the golf ball retail space.

    From the USGA conforming ball list that Jon posted you are able to see various manufacturers with promotional balls. Maybe PXG is just making a promotional ball? I would not be surprised if they did try to come to market with a ball, but it would make more sense to buy Acushnet from Fila.

    I hope it has torx screws. That’ll make it spin great around the greens.

    I don’t think Bob Parsons has any balls… I would have expected him to focus on precision laser scopes…

      Sorry… but that’s still the “elephant in the room”.

Mizuno announces new JPX 919 Tour Forged irons are coming August 29 (via cryptic Twitter post)

Published

on

While cryptic, it does appear Mizuno is announcing via Twitter that its new JPX 919 Tour irons are coming on 8/29/18. One would have to assume that means they will be launched on 8/29, not actually hitting retail on 8/29, but that remains to be seen.

We recently spotted a number of new irons on the USGA conforming list, including the JPX919 Tour irons pictured above, JPX919 Forged and JPX919 Hot Metal irons from Mizuno. So it’s likely that the JPX 919 Tour Forged irons won’t be alone in the JPX 919 family when they hit retail.

The JPX 919 Tour iron specifically pictured in the Tweet above seems to be the replacement for Mizuno’s JPX 900 Tour irons that Brooks Koepka used to win this year’s U.S. Open and PGA Championship. Learn more about the original JPX 900 Tour design from Mizuno’s Chris Voshal on our Gear Dive podcast.

Diving a bit deeper into the picture from Mizuno’s Tweet, it appears the JPX919 Tour irons will utilize Mizuno’s familiar Grain Flow forging, and will be made from 1025E; that’s based on the hosel stamping that says “GF Forged HD 1025E.”

Stay tuned for more info from Mizuno.
