Home BUILDING OUT A COMPANY:

Six-time PGA TOUR and two-time Champions Tour winner Rocco Mediate has signed an equipment endorsement deal with Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG). Mediate joins PGA TOUR golfer Ryan Moore on the PXG tour professional staff. Both Mediate and Moore are playing PXG 03x irons, PXG 0317 hybrids and a PXG 0811 driver.

“I believe success is part passion, part perspective, part luck and a whole lot of effort – kind of like a round of golf,” said PXG founder Bob Parsons, who is best known for another of his creations, Go Daddy. “I’ve recruited top talent to develop the finest clubs ever played and am committed to seeing the clubs in the hands of golfers, like Rocco and Ryan, who share PXG’s drive for success.”

Mediate, who began using PXG clubs in tournament competition a few weeks ago, finished in third place at the rain-shortened Greater Gwinnett Championship and tied for 10th with teammate Lee Janzen at the Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf at Big Cedar Lodge tournament last weekend. “In the short time I’ve been playing PXG equipment, I’ve seen incredible performance gains,” said Mediate. “I love the look, feel and forgiveness of the clubs. It just doesn’t get any better.”

Very little is known about PXG. However, it has recently begun to go public with announcing Moore and Mediate joining the fold. The company says it designs and develops high-performance golf clubs using premium alloys and patented technology. It  said it has developed a sophisticated manufacturing process for its irons that includes forging, high precision CNC milling, robotic plasma face welding and injection molding. High-density tungsten alloy screws, which create the irons’ signature look, are the foundation for a one-of-a-kind weighting system, according to PXG. Similar to the irons, but leveraging 16 screws versus 11, PXG’s driver uses moveable weight technology to enable every club to be strategically fitted for an individual.

An official release date for PXG clubs for consumers has not been set, but the company expects them to be available for purchase in late summer 2015.
