PXG Kicks Off Women’s Golf Month with Special “Day Off” Announcement

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – In honor and celebration of Women’s Golf Day, and as a catalyst for Women’s Golf Month, PXG has announced that it will give nearly 100 female employees across the globe June 1st off to enjoy the golf course.

Led by Renee Parsons, President & Executive Creative Director of PXG Apparel, the ladies of PXG – approximately 20% of the company’s team – will join forces with thousands of golfers to raise awareness and support for women playing golf. This is a natural initiative for PXG which has always championed unequivocal inclusivity as a core value for the company and its leadership.

Renee Parsons and her husband, PXG Founder & CEO Bob Parsons, have long supported issues related to women and girls. On average they donate a million dollars every 14-days through The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation and, since the Foundation’s inception, have donated more than $9.5 million specifically to women and girls related causes. Beneficiaries of the Foundation’s support include organizations like Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley, Girl Scouts Arizona Cactus-Pine, Chrysalis Shelter for Victims of Domestic Violence, Women Moving Millions, and Live & Learn.

In an email to the PXG team, Renee Parsons shared, “From club building and operations to retail and marketing, the women of PXG make us a stronger company.”

She also explained the importance of Women’s Golf Day, “For PXG, this day is about togetherness. We want to give the ladies of PXG the opportunity to connect with a global movement that encourages women to join forces in support of each other’s wins, on and off the course.”

Bob Parsons further added, “In every business I’ve built, strong women have helped pave the way to company success. This is no different for PXG. I am proud to count so many women among our #PXGTroops and am thrilled to give them the day to play golf – a sport that definitely needs their increased participation.”

The decision to support Women’s Golf Day with meaningful action was met by a collective cheer across the organization. Women and men alike celebrated PXG’s public commitment to helping raise global awareness, advocating for inclusivity, and encouraging participation.

With the entire female workforce out of office on June 1, PXG Social Media Director Colby Villa is planning ahead. “I manage a team of female golfers and am beyond excited for them to have a day off to enjoy the game they love and support daily. On 6/1, we may have to put up a ‘Gone Fishing Golfing’ sign for social media support!”
