The PXG One & Done mallet is the second release in PXG’s Battle Ready Collection, reinforcing last month’s PXG Blackjack release.

But the real story of the PXG One & Done is alignment.
Grand Canyon University’s Students Inspiring Students (SIS) Scholarship Program has received a $500,000, five-year grant from The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation.

The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation, in conjunction with PXG (Parsons Xtreme Golf), provided a $2 million matching grant to Team Rubicon to support its emergency response efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Laura and Hurricane Sally.

The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation awarded $2 million to the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) in support of its campaign to advance healing for patients with treatment-resistant trauma.
