PXG and Rucker Share a Love of the Game and Relentless Pursuit of Performance
PXG, the bold, performance-focused golf equipment company, today announced GRAMMY award-winning artist, Darius Rucker, as its newest ambassador.
Rucker is famous for his multi-Platinum status in the music industry and loved for his down-to-earth character and generous non-profit work. He’s a musical genius on stage and a golfer at heart, making him a perfect addition to the PXG Troops.
“Darius is more than another big name sporting our clubs. He’s a friend. And, quite possibly, a bigger golf fanatic than I am,” PXG founder and CEO, Bob Parsons shared. “He is already doing great things for golf through his relationship with the PGA TOUR and I know he will do great things for PXG too. I couldn’t be more proud to have him on board.”
Brought together by shared love the game, relentless pursuit of performance, and a friendship
formed on the golf course, Rucker currently has a full set of 14 PXG clubs in play.
"I play a lot of golf, and since switching to PXG clubs I’ve gone from an 8 handicap to a 4, and I broke 70 for the first time without changing any other part of my game,” Rucker noted.
