PXG Introduces Actor, Comedian, and Retired Marine Rob Riggle as the Company’s Newest Ambassador
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (July 28, 2022) – PXG, the fun-loving, performance-focused golf equipment and apparel company, announced Rob Riggle as its newest ambassador. The multi-talented actor, comedian, writer, producer, director, retired Marine Lieutenant Colonel, and golf nut will officially represent PXG on the golf course and collaborate in creating top-shelf content.
Riggle’s first project with PXG is a six-part web series, Playing Around with Rob Riggle. Click here to watch the teaser!
The series premieres on YouTube on Thursday, August 18, 2022, with new episodes airing every Thursday for six weeks. Each episode features Riggle and guests playing three holes at Scottsdale National Golf Club as they chat about life, work, and their passion for the game of golf. Guests include NFL players, golf broadcasters, military veterans, PXG customers, and more.
On his relationship with PXG, Riggle shared, “I love golf. I love PXG. I love playing golf with PXG!”
As an avid golf enthusiast, Riggle fell in love with the sport at the age of 12 after hitting a bucket of balls with his mom’s clubs. He currently hosts the extreme miniature golf game show Holey Moley on ABC but is best known for his roles in The Hangover, 21 & 22 Jump Street, Dumb and Dumber To, The Other Guys, Let’s Be Cops, and Step Brothers; as well as his work on Saturday Night Live and The Daily Show.
Like PXG Founder and CEO Bob Parsons, Rob Riggle is a United States Marine. He joined the Marine Corps in 1990 at 19, rising through the ranks and serving in various countries, including Albania, Liberia, and Afghanistan. He retired from the Marine Corps after 23 years of service.
“We’ve been team Riggle for years. Now, I am pleased and proud to officially welcome my fellow Devil Dog and funny man, Rob Riggle, to team PXG,” Bob Parsons stated.
Rob Riggle is a longtime fan of the PXG brand. An equipment junkie, Riggle initially sought out a golf club fitting at PXG Headquarters in true Marine meets comedy style. He took matters into his own hands. He hopped on a Southwest flight, called an Uber, and landed on PXG’s welcome mat.
The personalized fitting experience and an impressive first round on the golf course made PXG a mainstay in Riggle’s golf bag. Over the years, PXG has supported Riggle’s annual charity InVETational Golf Tournament. And later, Riggle accepted an invitation to participate in the PXG College Golf Showcase as Team Semper Fi & America’s Fund captain.

“I knew I could count on Bob Parsons to deliver the goods! He’s a fellow Marine after all,” Riggle stated. “When my PXG clubs arrived in that awesome black box, I knew things were about to improve. Collaborating with PXG is the best break my golf game has ever received.”
