Scottsdale, AZ (April 30, 2015) – Six-time PGA TOUR and two-time Champions Tour winner Rocco Mediate has signed an equipment endorsement deal with Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG). The announcement comes less than one month after PGA TOUR golfer Ryan Moore signed a deal with the golf equipment startup. 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. “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 last week’s rain-shortened Greater Gwinnett Championship.
“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.”
PXG designs and develops high-performance golf clubs using premium alloys and patented technology. The company 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. 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.
