Bob Parsons, Paige Spiranac’s new video blog: “Why are PXG clubs so expensive?”

Published

on

Golf’s favorite disruptive, ultra–premium golf brand is serving up a heaping portion of PXG brand red meat to its core consumers and detractors alike with the inaugural edition of “The PXG Files.”

In the new video series, PXG’s outspoken founder, Bob Parsons, clad in camo PXG headwear, sits next to Paige Spiranac, described as “social media sensation and PXG Ambassador,” to ostensibly answer “the many online questions and comments PXG receives about club technology, performance and price, along with some personal questions.”

As episode one is titled, “Why are PXG Clubs so Expensive?” the company is keen to address the question/comment they get more than any other.

Anyway, to see how Parsons, who speaks with nothing short of the enthusiasm of Randy Savage cutting a promo, answers that question and others, as well as what Spiranac has to say, check out the video below. And cheers on the production values!

Let us know what you think of the tandem of Bob & Paige, GolfWRX members.

    It’s great that someone is taking a “no restrictions” approach to developing golf equipment. That makes breakthroughs possible. PXG is good for the golf industry. I think they’re pushing the other club companies to innovate and move the needle on performance – across all price points.

    Am I biased? Yes. I own the irons, wedges, and hybrids. In 30+ years playing and buying equipment, I’ve never been happier with the performance and quality of my clubs. Keep up the good work PXG and Bob.

    Can we get rid of Paige? She has no status on any tour and will never get more than a sponsors exemption. There are other pretty girls who actually have tour cards. As for PXG the clubs they are good but not any better than your pings, TMs, etc.

    People buy PXG because they have nothing else to buy with their money! Are they that much better? NO! Will you score lower? NO! Will you look “cool”? NO! Will anyone care? NO! I’ll put my Callaway Apex CF-16’s up against PXG any day!

      I’m not sure anyone cares about you and you Callaway Apex CF-16s.

    PXG made a huge impact already to the whole golf industry. They made other major companies to work on better and at the same more expensive clubs including Callaway and TM. They did a great thing by pushing the industry further. That is a fact, you like them or not.

      It the expensive tungsten screws in the heads of the driver, irons and putter that make the clubs so costly to build.

    Nothing more stupid than an older guy wearing an ear lobe ring and trying to be hip with a young blonde. With that Caddyshack intro, I was just thinking of the judge and Parsons is just as goofy.

    I guess Mr Parsons figured he’d splash out a pretty girl to compliment his butt ugly clubs. News flash….. your clubs are still ugly and your girl is not all that.

    You like your roads, highways, and bridges? That’s what I do. I create value for others for a living, Paige. Getting by on TNA and the victim card will make such a wonderful life story for you. SO proud of you.

      A little full of ourselves there, Andrew? Jealous, perhaps? Or just the south end of a horse facing north. Your parents must be so proud of what you’ve become. Get a life.

        Civil Engineer? My parents hate that I didn’t become a trust fund baby, politician, bureaucrat, lawyer, or underwear model. Yep, life sucks.

          No, it’s that you feel the need to disparage someone for just doing their job. Chief? You really are full of yourself. Get a life.

            Dec 13, 2017 at 8:32 pm

            Yea, you said that already. Call loud-and-shallow Bob and his TNA puppet to be in the next PXG commercial. You’ll fit right in.

    • SteveS

      How in the world is she playing the victim card? Getting by on TNA? Do you think that is something new? Would you rather she was taking welfare?

      • Andrew

        Dec 13, 2017 at 8:56 pm

        You’re new to her little act apparently. She won’t stop crying victim of “cyberbullying” and it’s really boring and fake. That’s what happens when one derives self-worth from the number of social media “friends” they have. I don’t care what she does but I hope she’ll see a psychiatrist for the narcissitic personality disorder. It might help her make it as a professional golfer. She has golf talent. She just eff’s off too much.

    I get the purpose I guess. It’s as much about marketing Bob as it is the clubs. He knows he is taking some direct hits as to being likable or someone you can trust. That said, to me the big fail here is Paige… she comes off as artificial as plastic flowers and as dry as week old toast. Then closing with the “I get to play golf for a living. Do you buddy?” … in your face type comment was just plain stupid from the perspective of trying to increase marketability and being likable.

      Agreed. “play golf for a living”? When was the last time she cashed a check for her performance on a golf course? LOL.

        Some great players make more money outside of playing golf on tour including Tiger at his prime.

    Wow that was painful to watch.

    I’ve heard the mantra that they set out to be the best,no compromises, etc…but damn those are the ugliest clubs I have ever seen. They look like they belong in a Walmart boxed set.

    What a complete clown show. A total insult from PXG to anybody here that has a functioning frontal lobe.

Which Air Jordan model should Nike release as a golf shoe next?

Published

on

According to GolfMagic, Nike’s Air Jordan III golf shoe took off from the foul line and soared right out of stock.

Per the site: “Nike launched this new model back in February… but you’ll do very well to get your hands on either them right now as they have sold out on Nike’s website. However, a Nike spokesperson has since commented saying “more is on the way.”

Grammar aside, this is interesting.

Now, it wasn’t long ago that all golf shoes looked like this.

And with all due respect to the Etonic Dri-Lite of yore, and giving wide berth to the traditionalists in the golf footwear space, the transition to sneaker-style golf shoes is cool, isn’t it? I mean, even if you’re monumentally swagger impaired like myself and could never pull the “Js on the fairways” look off, it’s intriguing, no?

With that in mind, and recognizing the demand for the 3s, I thought it’d be interesting to consider what the next Jordan golf shoe ought to be.

Here are my finalists for the next wide release (yes, I know Nike made Ray Allen custom 11s and MJ has had a few customs). Many of these are new colorways of classic (OG) models. I’ve tried for a range of styles and picks from across the Jordan timeline. Images via the excellent catalogue on the Jordan website.

Air Jordan XXXII

Air Jordan VI

Air Jordan VIII

Air Jordan II (low)

Air Jordan XXX

Looks like Tiger is exploring some innovative solutions to his putting woes…

Published

on

Tiger Woods was 39th in strokes gained: putting in 2018. Historically an excellent putter, Woods was hot-and-cold with the flatstick, even benching his soulmate Scotty Cameron Newport 2.

It looks like Woods may have an ace in the hole for the upcoming season, however, with respect to his green reading and putt sinking. Check out this video posted to his Instagram from the Tiger Woods Invitational on the Monterey Peninsula earlier this week.

Good thing the USGA is restricting the use of green-reading devices and technologies, because this kid looks close to cracking the eternal mystery of the perfect marriage of line and speed for every putt.

Cool stuff, though, isn’t it? It’s also cool to see Tiger so genuinely excited about his “mentee.”

We all know the story of how, after September 11, Woods re-evaluated his charitable endeavors and began to conceive of the Tiger Woods Learning Center. He’s spoken passionately about the students who have made their way through the various programs in the past, and there’s no doubt he cares deeply about the TGR Foundation’s efforts, but seeing a thin slice of that reality is awesome.

If you’re on Instagram, you’re hopefully aware that we are ‘gramming it up as well (@golfwrx). And if you’re not following us, well, that hurts our feelings more than a three-putt bogey.
