Press Release: Parsons Xtreme Golf PXG Signs Golf Legend, Gary Player
Gary Player to Make His First Appearance as a Member of the PXG Troops at the 2019 Masters
Scottsdale, AZ (April 8, 2019) – Today, PXG announced that it has signed a deal with one of the greatest golfers of all time, Gary Player. Player will put 14 PXG clubs in play for the first time at the 2019 Masters for both the par-3 contest and the ceremonial first drive.
Famously shrouded in black, Player fits right in to PXG’s monochrome brand. But it is far more than a shared affinity for a lack of color that ties the two so seamlessly together. It’s a shared passion for golf and an uncompromising commitment to performance excellence.
“Gary Player has had one of the most remarkable careers in golf,” PXG founder and CEO Bob Parsons shared. “He personifies what PXG has set forth to accomplish – to be the finest example of excellence in the industry. I have tremendous respect for Mr. Player, and couldn’t be prouder to count him among the PXG Troops.”
Player’s worldwide win count is 165. He has won 24 times on the PGA TOUR, and 19 times on the Champions Tour. He holds the record for most times playing in the Masters, which he has won three times, and he is the only player in history to complete the career Grand Slam on both Tours.
In spite of his many victories, Player shared, “Golf is a puzzle without an answer. While I’ve been at it for years, I still haven’t the slightest idea how to play. However, I have learned that the tools you choose will go a long way toward putting together a better round. PXG clubs are my tools of choice for this chapter of my career. They are simply remarkable.”
