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.

  1. 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.
