In the world of golf, few brands stand out as disruptors like PXG (Parsons Xtreme Golf). Known for its high-performance equipment and innovative approach, PXG has also been a strong advocate for women in golf. From sponsoring LPGA players to fostering internal initiatives like the “Women’s Day to Play” for PXG staff, the brand is setting new standards in supporting women in the sport. At the heart of these efforts is Renee Parsons, President and Executive Creative Director of PXG Apparel. Her leadership has been pivotal in driving PXG’s commitment to inclusivity and empowerment in golf.

Supporting our LPGA Stars

PXG has made significant strides by backing some of the most talented women in golf. The brand’s LPGA Tour staff features a diverse and dynamic roster of athletes who exemplify excellence on and off the course. This includes world-class players like Brittany Lang, and Christina Kim, who not only use PXG equipment but also represent the brand’s ethos of pushing boundaries and striving for greatness. PXG has also proudly supported many of these athletes through their first professional wins. Players including Megan Khang, Celine Boutier, and most recently, Linnea Strom secured their first LPGA victories with PXG in the bag.

University Roster and Outreach Programs

PXG’s commitment to women in golf also extends to educational institutions. The brand actively supports university golf programs, providing scholarships, equipment, and mentorship opportunities to female student-athletes. This initiative aims to nurture talent at the collegiate level, ensuring that young women have the resources and support needed to pursue their golfing aspirations.

Impact of Sponsorship

Sponsoring these athletes goes beyond providing them with top-notch gear. It symbolizes PXG’s dedication to supporting women in their professional careers, helping them reach their full potential, and giving them a platform to inspire the next generation of female golfers. This commitment to the LPGA and select collegiate programs extends to visibility and advocacy, ensuring that women’s golf receives the attention and recognition it deserves.

“Women’s Day to Play” Event for PXG Staff

One of PXG’s standout internal initiatives is the “Women’s Day to Play” event, spearheaded by Renee Parsons. This event is designed to encourage PXG’s female staff members to engage with golf, regardless of their experience level. The initiative provides an opportunity for women in the company to experience the game in a supportive and inclusive environment.

Empowering Through Play

The “Women’s Day to Play” initiative is more than just a day on the greens; it’s a statement about the importance of inclusivity in sports. By fostering a culture where female employees can explore and enjoy golf, PXG is empowering them to develop new skills, build confidence, and embrace a sport that has traditionally been male dominated. This year, we were pleased to be joined by junior golfers from the First Tee Program, who each brought their a-game, bags of positivity and confidence in spades to the event, held at Scottsdale National Golf Club.
