Paige Spiranac has a new equipment sponsor. The 24-year-old online influencer, who has a following of more than 1.2 million on Instagram, has signed on to be a brand ambassador for PXG.

“Paige epitomizes PXG’s customers – passionate golfers who value exceptional equipment,” said PXG Founder Bob Parsons. “She knows who she is and is unapologetic in her efforts to enjoy the game. I think that’s pretty cool and I think our customers will think so too.”

Spiranac played collegiate golf at San Diego State University, where she was a First-Team All-Mountain West Selection in 2012-2013 and a Second-Team Selection in 2013-2014. She turned professional in 2015 and notched her first professional win at a Cactus Tour event at Orange Tree Golf Result in June 2016. She’s also competed in three high-profile events on the Ladies European Tour, missing the cut at the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters in 2015 and 2016. She finished T58 at the Ladies Scottish Open in 2016. 

My kind of Friday night. Pizza and comic books????????

It’s off the course where Spiranac has become a star. Golf Digest put her on the cover of its May 2016 magazine, declaring her a “Futurist,” one of the “innovators and influencers changing the game” of golf. She’s best known for her fitness, fashion, and golf photos and videos. Spiranac has also been outspoken against online bullying as an Ambassador of the CyberSmile Foundation, and more recently, a critic against the LPGA’s new dress code.

PXG was founded in 2014. The ultra-premium golf equipment manufacturer has a PGA Tour staff of nine players, including major champions Zach Johnson and Charl Schwartzel. Its LPGA Tour staff also includes nine players, most notably two-time major champion Lydia Ko.

“PXG is changing the golf industry in a way that is exciting and refreshing,” Spiranac said. “I believe in the company and its people, and want to be part of what they’re doing. I’m excited to finally say I am a member of the PXG Troops!”

  1. Paige is very attractive. PXG clubs are very unattractive. I’m not sure how they align a strategy of “premium” price to go after affluent people when their clubs look tacky and the names are something an adolescent would think of. “milled sugar dady zulu” wedges? No thank you.

    • Sell the sizzle, not the steak…… and that’s a market advertising rule that works every time. Just look at the dazzling bling clubs being peddled to the desperate geerheads searching for masculinity. They will pay anything to pretend to be a man among men. So obvious.

  2. Guys. You all have missed the boat here. It is a tax write-off for BP/PXG. Plus, Paige will help attract the high income guys AND ladies to come out to AZ and go thru the fitting experience, play golf for 2 days and be treated like a tour pro. This is brilliant business and he gets to write it all off.
    She is not tour player quality as of right now, but she can play and hit shots. I think it is a huge value add for PGX.
    Also… I was in Detroit playing in a M-G at DCC… I must have seen 15 sets of PGXs on the range. I hit a 6 iron shafted with a KBS tour S and after about 6 balls, i wanted to break my pings. Those clubs are awesome.

  3. Nothing new here. Companies have used good-looking people to market their products for a long time. Good for Paige- she’s made her looks a big part of her brand. It’s unknown and possibly unlikely that PXG sales will take off with her on board, but she’s getting her cut of the cake.

  4. She’s never made the cut on an LPGA event, only played in Dubai due to sponsor exemptions, and the tournament she won is on a 3rd string tour. As a professional golfer I’d really have to categorize her as a “scrub”. She does have social media credibility, but what value is added by an Instagram pro vs. a golf scrub. Not seeing the value add, you want pro tournament winners swinging your gear.

    • These clubs aren’t designed for scratch golfers…
      We sell the crap out of them. Even a few cats buying 2 of the milled wedges (despite me telling them they’d be perfectly happy with other offerings and save 1500 on 2 clubs).

      Guarantee not one of our customers actually gives a crap what any instagram era tour player (inc. Jordan, Jason, Rory or Tiger) plays…I’m not kidding. They ARE FINALLY asking a lot more about shafts, wanting to keep the loft adjustment square/neutral on drivers (premium brand bonded druver comeback?!) BALLS, and putter fittings….most of our customers won’t care if a fitness model who happens to play golf uses theses..

      The 12 & 13 yr old boys will be impressed. I wouldn’t be suprised if it helped keep stronger players away.

    • Done – nice smile, great bod, pleasant personality and is anti-bullying … yes, that’s it … that is the reason Parsons signed her. He doesn’t like bullies … :-)

    • She has been under contract with Callaway for years. It came to an end, so PXG picked her up. Marketing is about exposure, and this is what she provides. She will influence club sales way before the Blayne Barbers’ and Kevin Tways’ of the world. Now, are those guys far better players, of course, but neither of them carry her 1 million plus social media followers.

      • Agree – she is a better fit with PXG because of their fitting vacations and she will entertain them during a round of golf with a decent game and she has a variety of trick shots.

  5. As more and more public courses dry up and die hear in California, what we need is $3,000 sets of irons and $150 green fees….and they complain people are backing away from golf, yes they are trying to chase the average Joe away so rounds will be under 4 hours for the few.

  6. I was up at Haggin Oaks in Sacramento this past weekend and saw some used PXG clubs that were for sale for the first time (irons, woods). Not very pleasing to the eye and my initial thought was “are these Ping’s?”

    It’s a niche brand. The question I have is how many people who are buying these clubs are financing them? You’re seeing TaylorMade go that route, or should I say the leasing route. But with PXG being so expensive, how many sets are owned outright?

  7. It’s all business and $$$, guys. You know that. Callaway sponsored her since she graduated from college and helped her career. And she returned that loyalty by going with PXG. Loyalty? I should not have used that word. Everyone uses the other for profit, just as PXG is using Paige.

  8. Really no different than Callaway sponsoring Justin Timberlake and Alice Cooper. She may be a middling golfer but she gets page views. I do find it funny on how her comment of golf being for everyone is counter to the exclusivity that PXG promotes.

  9. You Guys are hard on the girl…Like someone else mentioned its 2017 and a different world out there than it was in 1980. A college degree and hard work do not always = success at the level most desire anymore. It takes presenting yourself in a “special” light that makes you stand out.

    Paige has done that IMO…while using all her assets? Yes…but not to the point of distaste.
    All I have to say is…”You Go Girl”

  10. What? Somehow I fail to see that she is that attractive. Wherever she goes she is taking pics of herself and posting them. That pic above in the red skirt? You can run to the local mall and see girls that look just like her all over. Or better.

  11. I have a daughter about the same age as Page who just completed a communications degree. What I’ve learned from my daughter is how young people like Page monetize their ” brand” which is really their attractiveness , athletic ability and number of followers on Facebook, YouTube and instagram. If I didn’t follow this website or the Golf Channel I wouldn’t have clue who she is because I’m aware she’s a competent college golfer but has had little or no success on pro tours. Apparently that’s not important to PXG and I get that.
    I don’t begrudge this young lady’s success because it’s 2017 and this is how advertising is done. With over a million followers on instagram she has a specific target audience. This is pure gold to any advertiser. Page created her brand through hard work and now is reaping some rewards. Good for her.

  12. Ridiculous but it’s keeping with the PXG idiotic marketing theme of gruff and tuff war dogs and T&A. Paige is nothing more than an average better player. And blonde woman are a dime a dozen. I still fail to see the demand for her.
