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