PXG Kicks Off International Women’s Day with an LPGA Tour Victory
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (March 8, 2021) – PXG Tour Professional Austin Ernst claimed her third LPGA Tour victory at the 2021 Drive on Championship. With a performance teeming with notable moments, Ernst finished out the weekend with a five-stroke lead (-15) to clinch a wire-to-wire win and move into third place in the Race to the CME Globe.
“Austin is an exceptional player, and I always enjoy watching her manage the course,” said PXG founder and CEO Bob Parsons. “She played lights out golf all week and certainly earned her spot at the top of the leaderboard. I couldn’t be more proud to count her among our PXG Troops.”
The win came just days before PXG is scheduled to launch its new GEN4 Golf Clubs for presale. GEN4 technology is so new that only the GEN4 Driver has been made available to the company’s tour staff. And the Driver is so good it immediately earned a spot in Ernst’s bag for the first time this week.
Following her win, Ernst shared, “I knew my numbers were super consistent and my GEN4 driver was long and accurate. Having confidence in my clubs and swing coming down the stretch helped me bring home the win.”

Ernst’s win times perfectly with the PXG’s efforts to celebrate women’s achievements in golf and business this International Women’s Day. In addition to Ernst, the global high-performance golf equipment and apparel company supports more than a dozen exceptionally talented women on the LPGA Tour and provides equipment to many other top-ranking females. The company also has several influential females in leadership roles and a notable desire to see more women take up the sport.
“Although the world has made strides toward gender equality, there are still glass ceilings left to shatter,” Renee Parsons, President and Executive Creative Director of PXG Apparel shared. “PXG seeks to ignite inclusivity and interest in the sport. We want to support women in their efforts to take on the course or their day with confidence and joy.”
