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”.

Callaway Rogue and Rogue Sub Zero drivers hit USGA conforming list

Published

on

As of Monday, Dec. 4, two new drivers from Callaway appear on the USGA conforming list: a Callaway Rogue and a Callaway Rogue Sub Zero, each in 9- and 10.5-degree heads. Based on the photos, the drivers will use weights in the sole, have adjustable hosels, and will feature Callaway’s popular Jailbreak technology that it introduced in its GBB Epic drivers. The Jailbreak design essentially uses two internal bars behind the face to reduce flex and ultimately boost ball speed.

Photos of a Callaway Rogue Sub Zero driver, which look similar to the photos posted on USGA’s conforming list, also recently popped up in our forums,. Check out the “Epic is out, enter the Rogue” forum thread, and the “New Callaway Driver/Woods: Rogue” thread to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the photos of the driver.

Below are the photos of the drivers as they appear on the USGA site, along with the listed specs and descriptions.
