Scottsdale, AZ (June 15, 2015) – Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG) has officially arrived on all three major U.S. tours. PXG, which designs and develops high-performance golf clubs using premium alloys and patented technology, today announced that it has signed an equipment endorsement deal with LPGA Tour rookie Sadena Parks.
The LPGA newcomer, who achieved notoriety as a participant in Big Break Florida, was invited to provide a female’s perspective on the look, feel and playability of PXG clubs earlier this year. Parks found the clubs to be exceptional and has since added PXG 0311 irons and wedges, as well as the PXG 0811 driver and PXG Drone putter to her bag.
“I love my PXG clubs. When I hit the ball it feels soft, but explodes off the face,” said Parks. "They perform how I expect them to. Even better, my mishits often still go the distance I was hoping for – that builds a lot of confidence for me. I’m in my rookie year on the LPGA Tour and knowing I have the best clubs in my bag makes a huge difference.”
“What I love about Sadena is her fight,” said PXG founder and American entrepreneur Bob Parsons. “I see her potential and believe that PXG clubs are an ideal match for her game. As she matures, I think we can expect great things.”
Sadena Parks is only the fifth African American female to play on the LPGA Tour and her journey to earn her card has been anything but easy. A public course player who had limited access to equipment and instruction, Parks’ passion for the game of golf has been her greatest asset. Parks was introduced to the sport at the age of nine by her father, and by age twelve she was able to out-drive him.
Parks, who began using PXG clubs in tournament competition a few weeks ago, shot a stunning six under for the final round of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship this weekend, securing her first top 25 finish on the LPGA Tour.
“We are proud to have Ryan Moore, Rocco Mediate and now Sadena Parks on our team,” Parsons added. “Their early adoption of our equipment and drive to play the best golf they can makes them great partners.”
