Parsons Xtreme Golf Expands Retail Partnerships To Support Rapidly Growing Demand

PXG clubs now available in seven countries

Scottsdale, AZ  – Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG) has taken another major step in launching its brand to consumers. The nascent golf equipment company, whose unique weighting system and proprietary club technology has generated a lot of buzz, has expanded its certified retail partnerships to include seven countries.

PXG clubs are not sold off the shelf or in big box retailers. The company has instead built relationships with top club-fitting outlets to sell its golf equipment.

“The experience of playing PXG clubs is unlike any other, and the purchasing experience should be just as special,” said American entrepreneur and PXG founder Bob Parsons. “That’s why PXG is partnering with some of the best names in the fitting business to sell its clubs.”

Certified PXG Retailers include Club Champion, Cool Clubs, Hot Stix, Modern Golf, Precision Golf, Pure Performance, The Club Fix and Urban Golf UK. These locations now offer the full line of PXG clubs to golfers who are ready to see their game improved.

“I love my new clubs,” shared PXG enthusiast Carolyn, a 16.1 handicap golfer. “They are outperforming my expectations. Bob Parsons’ enthusiasm for the PXG technology, quality and customer service is genuine and sincere. Being fit for my PXG clubs made me feel like a tour pro and my game is definitely better for it. Bravo team PXG – you’re doing it right. I’m a big fan!”

“This is the kind of enthusiasm we are seeing across the board,” Parsons added. “When someone is professionally fit for PXG clubs their enjoyment of the game goes up and their scores go down. In my mind that is a winning combination.”

The look, feel and playability of PXG clubs has attracted golfers at every level of the game, including those at the very top. The company’s clubs are currently being played on all three major U.S. Tours.

“Putting PXG clubs in play has been a great decision,” said four-time PGA TOUR champion Ryan Moore. “The technology is beyond anything I’ve ever played. I’ve been able to achieve some great improvements in my numbers.”

Snoopy Bunker At St. Paul’s Highland National Pays Tribute To Cartoonist Schulz


Legendary cartoonist caddied and played golf often at his hometown municipal golf course

Lawrence, Kan. (Aug. 11, 2015) – Charles Schulz made his fame and fortune as a cartoonist, but he enjoyed playing golf in his hometown of St. Paul, Minn., nearly as much as he enjoyed making people laugh with his Peanuts characters for 50 years.

Schulz died in 2000, but his most famous cartoon character, Snoopy, lives on with a specially designed bunker on the 15th hole at Highland National Golf Course, the public course where Schulz caddied as a young boy and played golf throughout much of his life.

The character design was incorporated into the major course renovations that were completed in 2005.

“Charles Schulz was a huge figure in the St. Paul area and he loved golf,” said Paul Miller, who collaborated on the course work with Garrett Gill. “We wanted a way to honor his contributions to golf in the area, and Mrs. Schulz liked the idea. At first, we thought of doing a Snoopy-shaped pond, but the plans evolved into a Snoopy bunker. And it works to define the landing area of the hole.”

The 15th hole is a 424-yard straightaway par-4, and the Snoopy bunker is clearly visible to traffic driving by on the neighborhood street.

(San Marino, CA) – Lizzie Driver – the women’s golf-lifestyle fashion brand offering sophisticated clothing for the country club fairway and everyday – announces its Autumn/Winter 2015 Mosaic collection is now available at hundreds of select green grass, resort and specialty locations.

Inspired by the beauty of Mosaic art, the range boasts a variety of graphic patterns and bold color combinations, with several pieces incorporating exclusive prints from the famed Liberty of London mill. These are showcased across a broad selection of finely-crafted tops, bottoms, sweaters and jackets, most of which are made with care in downtown Los Angeles.

“By drawing from current fashion trends, our collections provide styles that transcend the fairways,” says Lorrie Forgatch, Co-Founder of Lizzie Driver. “This presents a great upsell opportunity for our retail partners to offer a line for all aspects of an active woman’s life.”

Worn in competition by 2014 Women’s British Open champion Melissa “Mo” Martin and fellow LPGA Tour star Jaye Marie Green, Lizzie Driver is renowned for the manner in which its garments flatter a woman’s body. Distinctive draping and graceful movement has become a signature of the brand’s aesthetic establishing that golf clothes can be beautiful.

“Though each collection is new and unique, our garments are meant to work in concert with those from previous seasons,” Karen Preston, Co-Founder of Lizzie Driver. “This allows our customers to build a robust, quality-driven wardrobe.”

In an era of disposable fast-fashion and consistent price compression, Lizzie Driver has staked out a premium position by offering the very best fabrics, fit, style and detailing. A majority of its collections are made in downtown Los Angeles and are distributed through more than 320 better shops in more than 30 states and several international markets.
