PXG recognizes the growing number of women who are embracing and excelling in golf, and the company is dedicated to maintaining this positive trend and ensuring that everyone feels included.
As part of Women’s Golf Month, PXG is shining the spotlight on its talented LPGA Tour players, celebrating its employees, and making a meaningful impact on the community through various initiatives aimed at fostering the growth of the game.
Premiering today is an exciting collaboration between PXG and comedy icon and avid golfer Rob Riggle. In this unique venture, Rob joins forces with LPGA Tour Professionals including Celine Boutier, Austin Ernst, and Christina Kim to deliver stimulating tips and tricks that enhance performance on the course.
The nine-episode series, titled “PXG Pro Tips with Rob Riggle: LPGA Edition,” covers everything from the fundamentals to the finer points of the game. You can catch the series on PXG’s website and YouTube.
Renee Parsons, President & Executive Creative Director of PXG Apparel, emphasized, “We all agree that growing the game is a serious matter. However, when you infuse humour into golf, PXG has found that players have more fun on the course and are more likely to return.”

This initiative called PXG Women’s Day to Play, will take place on June 5, 2023, with coordinated events in Scottsdale, London, and Tokyo.
Parsons shared, “We understand that providing opportunities for the women on our team to experience golf is crucial to their daily success and to the overall growth of the game.
By looking inward, eliminating barriers, and creating a supportive environment, we aim to inspire interest, foster engagement, and promote job satisfaction.”
Going above and beyond, PXG continues to contribute to the advancement of the game through its local retail and fitting studios as well as its field teams.
For the month of June, all golf club fittings for women are offered at a remarkable 90% discount using the offer code “WOMENS90.”
Additionally, the company is actively working to demystify the game for underserved students from diverse backgrounds through its PXG engineer-led Science of Golf programming.
On June 26, 2023, PXG will host STEM Atlanta Women, a science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) group based in Atlanta focused on creating opportunities for black women and young girls in the area.
Through this event and similar ones at other locations, PXG aims to inspire America’s youth, regardless of their backgrounds, to pursue STEM careers in golf and engage in the game itself.
