This is starting to sound like the old NFL owner joke of how do you become a millionaire? Start with a billion and buy a golf company! :taunt:  Seriously, he is starting to fall into all the traps the other companies fell into. I know he has other businesses to draw from to support all the advertising spend, but that ain't a good business move either.

I play with some D1 golfers and their access to fittings and equipment isn't as good as we think.  Seems the coach does a lot of the "fitting" and they can buy gear at wholesale that really is more like cost plus 20% especially on the latest and greatest driver, like the Epic.

Surprised me, but most aren't big gear ho' s either.

Not really  a big surprise.  Most better players stick to things for a long time if they work.

It's a nice gesture from PXG, I doubt that any great number of these kids are going to be household names, so it's just a nice thing to do.  It is ironic that PXG is giving equipment to kids going to private schools that cost the earth to attend.

This statement doesn't make much since considering these are 6 of the best women's programs in the country.  These programs also tend to get the best players in the world.
