Since launching in September of 2014, Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG) has unapologetically shaken up the golf club industry. The company, which was founded by billionaire golf nut Bob Parsons, has never been interested in anything but making the best golf clubs on the market. That is why they have waited this long to finally drop their X collection of PXG drivers and metal woods.
The reason it took so long to release the PXG driver and metal woods is Parsons’ uncompromising standards. Even after professional golfer Charles Howell III reached out to PXG founder Bob Parsons saying, “this driver is so fantastic you’ve got to release it now,” the company didn’t release the club.
According to Parsons they waited on a release because, “at that point because we knew several ways to make it even better.” He went on to say, “For me there are three things that go into the experience of hitting a club – performance, sound and feel. It doesn’t matter how much we spend. It doesn’t matter how long it takes or how many iterations. Each one of those things has to be right. The clubs in the new PXG X Collection go like hell, and sound like heaven. They are simply in a class of their own.”
You have to admire his commitment to excellence. It is probably why people are buying PXG clubs even though they are two to three times as expensive as other equipment.
