PXG Coolest Golf Brand?


Recommended Posts

I also say no. 

Its hard to believe that a brand that cost upwards of 3x more than the brands that win most on tour could pass for this. Just the fact that 99% of people cant afford them makes them uncool. Winning is cool, and they aren't often found in the winners circle. 

 

I will say, however, I do love they try and take care of our military/first responders with a great discount. That does make them cool, it just benefits  a very small portion of the golf population.

Haven’t followed them much the past year, I assume?
 

The 2021 0211 line is priced less than many of the major new lines out and is a great iron it’s own right apart from the 0311.

I partially stand corrected. Now I have not had this set in my hands, but they very much look like PXG's most entry level improvement club based on offset and loft. And at $1400 dollars a set their least expensive set rivals other brands most expensive irons (TM P790 @ $1400, Callaway APex PRO @ $1300, Mizuno MP-20 @ $1300, etc) while PXG's premier sets come in at $2,800, a 2.15x increase. PXG does not make superior equipment based on MGS' own testing. Their irons don't appear in the top 5 of any of MSG most wanted Iron testing that I could find. In fact, PXG equipment only appears twice that I could see in any category (Most wanted best value, and High Swing Speed most forgiveness). This price to performance ratio, only in my opinion (which is what the OP asked for) is not cool. 

 

But as I stated before, taking care of our military, police, fire, ems the way they do is way cool.

I like your list and definitely think PING is on top (no bias here, just don't look at what's in my bag, lol). I'm also thinking of brands that have evolved beyond just clubs and have become a force in culture as well - eg: Titleist hats, all of Puma/Cobra's clothes and accessories, etc...

I have no problem with your preferences, but I wouldn't call any of them "cool", except maybe Cobra. The rest are pretty buttoned up corporate brands to me. The exact opposite of cool.

I think “Innovative” is the correct descriptive word for PXG. I never thought I would be a PXG club owner, but with Bill Parsons “Heroes” discounts, I am now the proud owner of a PXG Driver and soon probably more.

I see PXG the same way I see guys driving Hummers.  When they first came out everyone wanted one, now when I see one I just laugh and think they are a bunch of a-holes.  No offense if you drive a Hummer.  Same goes with PXG.  Typically, the guys I see with PXG's suck.  They want to be noticed on the course, but can't hit the ball worth a damn.
