Recommended Posts

What our own Tony Covey first reported back in early December is official  --  Zach Johnson, Billy Herschel, Chris Kirk, Charles Howell III and others are now part of the PXG Tour Staff.  

 

Here's a link to today's MGS Blog

 

And if you're on PXG's mailing list, you no doubt received an email with this link.

So Parsons Xtreme Golf is serious, and is loading up with some legit Tour Staff, and as Tony says, is looking for bigger fish to fry.

 

What do you think this says about the brand? The equipment?  Are you rooting for these guys or does all the money and the price of the clubs just piss you off?

 

Do tell....

 

What's in the bag:

I love how they were tweeting out the silhouettes of the staffers but no names. Very cool stuff!

 

I didn't doubt the intentions of Bob Parsons (ultimate club ho) from day one. He wants to make the best equipment money can buy and he understands marketing, especially the power of marketing in golf. He knows his stuff is awesome, and he needs staffers to continue growth.

 

The prices are not much different than Miura, Epon, and other super high end manufacturers. I've hit the stuff and it performs well. Personally, I to spend a little more time wth the PXG tour irons before I make my decision on what I'm playing for 2016.

Surprised that they made clubs for a few other guys that haven't been announced as staff. I know one is still in contract but will likely be using a few of their clubs this year. Maybe DL3 isn't a staff guy but he has been playing PXG for awhile now.

He can price his gear as high as he wants... I personally think they are ugly. Waaay too many screws.

 

EDIT: UGLY!

I think they are ugly. I know performance is what counts, but they look like Transformers...lol.

 

I don't care what he charges for them. It doesn't piss me off in the least. I hope he's successful and does well with them. I could never afford them, regardless.

Personally I love the way this is playing out.  Anytime the little guys can make the big boys stand up and take notice I think it's a good thing.

 

Right now these are definitely out of my price point, but I'm hoping this tech takes a similar approach the car industry takes with Mercedes.  Mercedes get's the tech and cool stuff first.  Then in 2-4 years we see it trickle down into the main stream auto industry.

And if I were to ever purchase a set of these, I'd do the same thing I did when I bought my Mercedes: buy them used!
