Charl Schwartzel signs to PXG ahead of the Open

Published:

2011 Masters winner Charl Schwartzel has signed an endorsement deal with PXG.
 
The South African golfer who plays on the PGA and European Tours, clinched a Masters victory by two strokes in 2011.

With three wins already under his belt this season, Schwartzel is hungry for another major and has determined that PXG will help him get there.
 
“From clubs to club maker, I feel like PXG is behind me,” he said.

“They have taken an interest in all aspects of my game and are committed to helping me play the best golf of my life. I had the opportunity to speak with Bob Parsons and his enthusiasm for the game of golf and golf equipment is infectious.”
 
“Not only is Charl a champion, he is a stand-up guy – the kind of guy we want on our team,” said PXG founder and American entrepreneur Bob Parsons.

“I couldn’t be more proud to have such an accomplished player join the team of professionals representing PXG.”

In January of 2016 PXG announced a of 12 tour professionals, including 2015 British Open Champion Zach Johnson, 2014 FedExCup Champion Billy Horschel and U.S. Women’s Open Champion Cristie Kerr. In less than a year, PXG’s pros have celebrated wins on all three major U.S. Tours.
 
Although Schwartzel has only had a few days to practice and familiarize himself with his new PXG clubs, he will put several in play for the first time during The Open Championship at Royal Troon Golf Club.
