WITB: Billy Horschel – Byron Nelson

Golf Equipment

This was Horschel’s first win since his 2014 FedEx heroics and his first with a full bag of PXG clubs. Take a look at what he’s using…

Billy Horschel was one of a number of players who signed up with Parsons Xtreme Golf – PXG to you and me – at the start of 2016.

He joined Zach Johnson, Chris Kirk and James Hahn in an impressive early line-up for the premium brand owned by billionaire Bob Parsons.

Charl Schwartzel and Lydia Ko have since joined what they like to call the PXG Troops.

Hahn was also in contention right until the end but just missed out on the play-off which saw Horschel beat Jason Day on the first extra hole.

PXG clubs, designed with help from former Ping engineers, are made from super-premium materials and are aimed at the very top end of the market.

They are seen very much as fashion accessories but are also look, sound and feel fantastic. A full set is going to set you back around £3-4,000.

Horschel uses the new 0811X driver and 0311T irons which we were lucky enough to test out recently.

The American also games the stunning 0311T milled wedges which will set you back around £500 a wedge. They are the brand’s first 100 per cent milled wedges and were only available to tour players until recently.

“To have a chance now to, you know, further push myself forward up that FedExCup list and have another chance to win the FedExCup and be along side another legend, Tiger Woods, the only guy that won it twice, that’s honestly a big time goal of mine to win it again,” Horschel said.

“I haven’t run out of that $10 million yet but I still like to have another $10 million.”
