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.

          Dec 13, 2017 at 3:04 pm

          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.

          • Andrew

            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

      Dec 13, 2017 at 3:30 pm

      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.

        When she signed a contract with PXG or received money for her golf related videos on YT or other platform.

        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.

    I can’t think of a poorer person to represent an golf manufacturer. It would be sooo much better if their products did the talking… unfortunately it cannot!

Jean van de Velde’s 1999 British Open collapse is still tough to watch in LEGO form

Published

on

Gather ‘round, golf fans, for the saddest British Open story ever told–in LEGOs.

Maestro of the plastic medium, Jared Jacobs, worked his singular magic on Jean van de Velde’s notorious final-hole collapse at Carnoustie in 1999.

The interlocking plastic brick cinema begins after van de Velde’s approach shot has caromed off a grandstand railing to land on the opposite side of the Barry Burn.

Sung Kang finally responds to cheating allegations

Published

on

Sorry to interrupt your regularly scheduled British Open programming, but Sung Kang stated today he still doesn’t think he didn’t anything wrong. “I followed the rules by the rules official…I think I did the right thing,” he said after his opening round at The Open.

Joel Dahmen, if you recall, accused the 31-year-old pro of taking a bad drop at the 10th hole during the final round of the Quicken Loans National.

The comments were Kang’s first public remarks since a statement co-released with the PGA Tour which said, “He is standing by the ruling that was made by PGA Tour Rules officials on Sunday and will have no further comment.”

While he stopped short of giving his side of the story, Kang did indeed make “further comment.”

Here’s some of what he said.

“I did not want to say anything bad about Joel. Because there can be difference of opinions. But the way he just said it on Twitter was not right. There can be different opinions. And also, it was made a decision by the rules official. So nothing was wrong.”

“I really want to say a lot of things about it, the truth about what happened, but no comment because I’m not going to say anything. I think I made the right decision. … Even when I say something, a few people still kind of think i still did something wrong. And if someone believes in me, they aren’t going to trust what Joel said.”

“No matter what I say, some people are going to trust it, some people are not going to trust it. And then I’m going to be thinking about it more and more. So I’m just focusing on my golf game.”

The British press asked Kang if he wishes he had done anything differently.

“No. Why? I did the right thing,” Kang replied.

Now, I’m not here to argue one way or the other, but the rules official wasn’t in position to do anything other than leave things at the player’s discretion, which he did. So, it’s misleading–if not downright deceptive–for Kang to suggest otherwise.

The official didn’t see the shot. There was no video of it. The only thing he had to rely on was the accounts of those who did see it. In a situation where accounts vary, and with the Rules of Golf relying on player integrity as they do, all he could do was leave the ball in Kang’s court. Thus, the decision as to where to drop was wholly Sung Kang’s.

Again, this isn’t to say the drop was necessarily bad, bad to play the “decision by the rules official” card is, well, a bad drop.

GolfWRX Members Choice: Best Open Championship course

Published

on

With Open week upon us, we wanted to know which Open Championship venue is first in the hearts of GolfWRX members.

We asked: Factoring in course design, viewing enjoyment, overall test of golf, history, and whatever else you put into your criteria, what do you think is the best Open Championship venue, and why?

The top-three vote getters got more than 80 percent of the vote. Only Royal St. George’s was more than two percent. As a refresher, the other venues were, Royal Liverpool. Royal Troon, Royal Lytham & St. Anne’s, Royal Portrush, Royal Birkdale, and Turnberry.

The top three from the Open rota in GolfWRX members’ links-loving hearts are as follows.

3. Carnoustie (18.57%)

Ignatius Reilly says, “I went with Carnoustie – maybe because it’s the current one, and maybe because it’s so nasty.”

Sean 2 says. “I selected Carnoustie because it is a challenge regardless of the weather. As DJ called it: “…a true test.”

2. Muirfield (20%)

15th Club draws on his first-hand experience, “But I have been asked this question before; of the British Open courses, which one was your favorite? And my answer always was an additional question; if all of my remaining golf could only be played on just one course that I have been on, what would it be?”

“And the answer is Muirfield. It might not have the interest or the quirkiness of The Old Course, but to me, it is the finest, fairest, purest test of golf I have ever seen. It is at once a perfect match play and/or stroke play golf course. And it is more natural, with less town-encroachment than almost all of the other sites on the Rota.”

1. Old Course at St Andrews (41.43%)

IVM says simply, “St Andrews the home of golf.”

Bucky316 points out, “St Andrews….but only with heavy wind… otherwise it’s sad to see a historic track getting thrashed by the modern technology.”

What do you think, GolfWRX members? You can vote in the poll here, or feel free to discuss your favorite track in the comments.
