What Do the Numbers Mean?

The PXG Numbering System is inspired by the Marine Corps.


PXG founder and CEO Bob Parsons served as a rifleman (0311) with the United States Marine Corps during the Vietnam War. A purple heart recipient, Parsons attributes his success in life and business to his time in the Corps.

PXG's unique club numbering system references the Marine Corps' Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) system. This numbering protocol is found on all PXG drivers, fairway woods, hybrids, and irons. Products like putters are also named for military equipment and weapons. This naming convention is a nod to Parsons' military roots and a tribute to the brave men and women who serve our country.
