How does a private jet, two custom fitted sets of PXG clubs and a round of golf with the billionaire founder of the Arizona brand sound?
Well, that’s exactly what PXG is offering in what might just be the best fitting experience we’ve ever seen.
Described as an ‘elite four-day getaway for two’, it includes extensive club fittings, two sets of 14 clubs, golf, luxurious accommodation and the small matter of breakfast and a round of golf with PXG founder Bob Parsons.
Here’s the package in full. Its description reads as follows and can be yours for the princely sum of $99,000.
“The Ultimate PXG Xperience is one you’ll share with the legacy himself – PXG founder Bob Parsons. The elite four-day getaway for two includes club fittings, two sets of 14 clubs, unparalleled golf and luxurious accommodations in Scottsdale, Arizona.
“Private air transportation is provided in a Bombardier Challenger 350 from anywhere in Continental US (international travel also available). Sit down to breakfast with Bob Parsons prior to your outdoor club fitting at Scottsdale National Golf Club, then enjoy your first 18 holes with him on the world-class Mine Shaft Course.”

Smylie stokes conspiracy theory
Smylie Kaufman grabbed our attention when he showed off his new wedge stampings on Snapchat last week.
Apparently, Kaufman’s wedge relates to a popular conspiracy theory suggesting that Harambe, the Cincinnati Zoo gorilla that was put down after a child fell into its enclosure, passed away due to an ‘inside job’.
