TaylorMade is turning the tables, accuses PXG of patent infringement



Back in September, PXG filed a lawsuit against TaylorMade claiming the new P-790 irons violated patents that PXG owned. At that time, PXG also filed for a temporary restraining order (TRO) that would halt the sales of P-790 irons ahead of their September 15th launch date. That restraining order was denied, and TaylorMade claimed it was “falsely accused” of infringement.

Flash forward to two weeks ago — as first reported by Golf Digest — TaylorMade is flipping the script on PXG. TaylorMade has filed documents in the U.S. District Court in Arizona accusing PXG of violating TaylorMade’s patents. The documents — you can read all 189 pages here by subscribing — call for PXG to stop selling all of its 0311 irons, its 0811 drivers and 0341 metalwoods.

Additionally, TaylorMade is also calling for PXG’s lawsuit against the P-790 irons to be dismissed, because “PXG’s complaint fails to map the features of the P790 irons onto the limitations of even one claim…”

Stand by, as we will update this post with any further news regarding this legal battle.

    Just looking at the clubs, this lawsuit by PXG is a joke! TaylorMade had been injecting irons with different materials for years, and virtually every manufacturer is using tungsten for weighting purposes. What will the outcome be…KA-BOOM BABY…as PXG IMPLODES! LOL.

    Why don’t they forget the lawsuits and use those funds to reduce the price of their over-priced equipment?

      …maybe because they employ lawyers, who want to earn even more money, instead of playing more golf?

      It’s a free market and they aren’t overpriced if people are willing to buy at the current price.

      Perhaps you need a better paying job!

        Lydia Ko and all tour players should ditch the PXG and go back to Callaway, Ping,Taylormade, etc. Let the egomaniacs support and pay for PXG. Be the first one to pawn the clubs when he loses his job. That’s why the regulAR guy anD gal are happier with life! PS: my advice, try not to play with idiots that care about high paying jobs….

          DK … if you think PXG are “overpriced” try Homma! It seems that the “luxury” golf market is not so much into the “quality” of the clubs so much as they are more interested in marketing to the more affluent buyer that wants these clubs for the prestige, etc. that they convey.

    I’m surprised Ping hasn’t sued PXG yet as their club designers used to work for them.

    Very old trick: Accuse others of that which you yourself are guilty.

      Actually, Taylormade had foam filled irons long before PXG even existed. PXG would seem to be infringing on Taylormade’s intellectual property.

        I remember Gary McCord hucking those TM foam-filled irons. Didn’t sell too well, I recall.

        They did indeed with the ICW5 and ICW11 sets of irons, but those patents expired before PXG’s irons were produced. Both PXG and TaylorMade would have to prove that their current patents were been infringed upon.
