With the start of 2020, we’re seeing which pro golfers are switching equipment companies for the new year.
PXG is the first to announce significant changes, adding staffers from the PGA Tour and LPGA Tour.
Two-time PGA Tour winner Chez Reavie, as well Jason Kokrak and Joel Dahmen are joining PXG on the PGA Tour side. LPGA Tour rookie Haley Moore, a University of Arizona product, will begin her first full year as a pro with PXG in the bag.
Reavie is making his PGA Tour debut for 2020 at the Sentry Tournament of Champions after winning the 2019 Travelers Championship.
“I appreciate that they sincerely want to help me play my best and feel confident that their golf clubs will help me get it done,” Reavie said. “And, in the true spirit of PXG, hopefully I’ll have even more fun while I’m at it.”
Reavie, ranked 36th in the Official World Golf Ranking, is coming off a career-best season that was highlighted by a win at the Travelers Championship and six top-10 finishes.
As for the prototype driver he plans to carry, black-and-white images obtained from the USGA’s conforming driver list show a design that’s markedly different from what we’ve seen from PXG in recent years. The recognizable weight screws once positioned around the perimeter of the sole have been replaced by four robust weight ports in heel, toe, front and back.
On selecting players to PXG’s professional staff, PXG founder and CEO, Bob Parsons said he applies the same standard as In any of his businesses. “When I hire a new employee I look for a light in their eyes. It’s no different when I sign a tour pro.”
