2011 Masters champion Charl Schwartzel has swapped his Nike equipment for high-end brand PXG and will play with the new clubs at The Open.
“From clubs to club maker, I feel like PXG is behind me,” said Schwartzel. “They have taken an interest in all aspects of my game and are committed to helping me play the best golf of my life. I had the opportunity to speak with Bob Parsons and his enthusiasm for the game of golf and golf equipment is infectious.”
Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG), is an American golf equipment start-up that had a limited launch into the UK last year. Retailing at around $6,000 per set, PXG targets the high-end segment of the golf market which owner Bob Parsons believes is starved for new, performance-enhancing product. Schwartzel joins a growing stable at the upstart equipment company which includes Zach Johnson.
