Parsons Xtreme Golf has taken its time in expanding its offerings, and PXG is now ready to enter the very competitive putter market with a line of 11 milled putter models.
And if you want an explanation for why PXG took a little while to get to putters, it's simple: They needed to make their irons first.

As PGATour.com's Jon Wall explains, the PXG milled putters use the same Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) technology that was initially created to fill the hollow cavity of the company's 0311 irons. The TPE insert was key in managing sound in feel in those clubs, and the same concept applies in the irons, albeit at a much different swing speed. Each of the putters has a hollow cavity behind a 304 stainless steel face insert which is filled with TPE.
The PXG putters are milled from 303 stainless steel and aircraft-grade aluminum. They're available in black and chrome finishes, and they all have adjustable weight ports on the flange that use titanium and tungsten screws, which double as alignment aids.
The 11 head styles fall into five families:
The Dagger is a classic no-offset blade (think the Wilson 8802) look with a straight toe-down hang angle, built for players who have an arc-style stroke. There's also a Dagger C model, which is center-shafted and face balanced for a player who takes the putter straight back and through.
The Brandon is a modern blade, with a plumber's neck hosel with a full shaft of offset and a mid-hang angle. There's an S model that is face-balanced with a single-bend shaft for the straight-back-and-through stroke. The H model is a heel-shafted version for the arc-style stroke.
The Mustang is a new look head, with a blade-style shape featuring what could be best described as having butterfly wings for moment-of-inertia purposes. It has a plumber's neck hosel with a mid-hang angle. The S model is face-balanced with a single-bend shaft. There'a C model that's face-balanced with no offset. Billy Horschel has put this putter in play.
The Gunboat is the company's high MOI mallet-style head. It has a single-bend shaft with a face-balanced hang angle. It comes in 370- and 400-gram versions, with the heavier model coming with a counter-balanced grip. This putter should be used by players with a back-and-through stroke.
The Drone, from above, looks like a horseshoe-style stadium, with a mallet-style look that has a single bend shaft and is face-balanced. There's a C model with a center-shafted look with no offset. These putters are good for players with a back-and-through stroke.
All of these putter cost either $400 or $500 each.
