Does PXG have a new golf ball up its sleeve?

Published

on

Based on a photo posted to Twitter and in our forums on Wednesday, new golf equipment company PXG may be getting into the golf-ball game, as well.

As the photo suggests, PXG has a least one golf ball in existence, called the “Tour X6” if labeling on the ball is any indication.

Of course, expanding into golf balls would be no surprise for the equipment company that’s run by Bob Parsons, whose business plan seems to revolve solely around making the best products his company can, regardless of cost. After all, he admitted to spending more than $250,000 per year on his own golf equipment in an attempt to improve his game.

If Parsons plans on releasing PXG golf balls to the market, they would join the retail equipment stable at PXG that currently includes drivers, woods, hybrids, irons, wedges and putters, most of which already have a presence on the PGA Tour.

Questions to ponder: Will the PXG golf balls follow suit for the company and be ultra expensive? What other equipment does PXG have next on the horizon? Does the golf ball have tungsten screws in its core?

See what GolfWRX members are saying about the golf ball photo in our forums.

Update: According to a PXG representative, the company has no plans to enter the golf ball retail space.

    From the USGA conforming ball list that Jon posted you are able to see various manufacturers with promotional balls. Maybe PXG is just making a promotional ball? I would not be surprised if they did try to come to market with a ball, but it would make more sense to buy Acushnet from Fila.

    I hope it has torx screws. That’ll make it spin great around the greens.

    I don’t think Bob Parsons has any balls… I would have expected him to focus on precision laser scopes…

      Sorry… but that’s still the “elephant in the room”.

Forgiving irons for a sweeper/picker of the ball – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing iron options for sweepers. WRXer ‘Chrisp’ is currently playing Nike’s VR Pro blades but is looking for the “playability of a blade but with a little more forgiveness”, and our members have been sharing their suggestions in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • xmanhockey7: “Don’t overlook the Apex Pros. They’re especially good if your miss tends to be a bit thin.”
  • randytrevor: “I would give New Level PF-2 a look unless you want to stick to big OEMs. So far these have been as good as anything out and provide just enough forgiveness. You won’t get a tiny profile, but they will look good at address. These have literally been my most favorite set of irons to date.”
  • Hougz79: “I’m a sweeper as well, and I love the turf interaction the P7MC gives me. I think they are reasonably forgiving if you are mostly on center for misses. They are very clean thru the turf IMO.”
