Darius Rucker has been named the newest ambassador for golf equipment company PXG. The Grammy winner’s love of golf is well known. Earlier this year, he hosted the 10th annual Darius & Friends Golf Tournament and Concert to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. In February, Rucker joined the PGA Tour as an official brand ambassador. In 2018, Rucker joined Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley to co-host the Academy of Country Music’s inaugural ACM Lifting Lives Topgolf Tee-Off event.

Rucker currently has a full set of 14 PXG clubs in play.

“Darius is more than another big name sporting our clubs. He’s a friend. And, quite possibly, a bigger golf fanatic than I am,” PXG founder and CEO, Bob Parsons said. “He is already doing great things for golf through his relationship with the PGA TOUR and I know he will do great things for PXG too. I couldn’t be more proud to have him on board.”

“I play a lot of golf, and since switching to PXG clubs I’ve gone from an 8 handicap to a 4, and I broke 70 for the first time without changing any other part of my game,” Rucker said. “I have a tremendous amount of respect for Bob—who he is, what he has accomplished and how he operates his businesses. I particularly love what he has done for the game of golf since launching PXG. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever experienced.”

Among the clubs Rucker currently uses are the 0811 XF GEN2 10.5 Driver – Fujikura Speeder Evo V 569- R; 0341 X GEN2 3 Wood – Aldila-NV2KXV-Blue-70-R; 0317 X GEN2 19 Hybrid – Accra iSeries 80i; 031 7X GEN2 22 Hybrid – Accra iSeries 80i; PXG 0311P 5-9W AeroTech SteelFiber 110cw; PXG Sugar Daddy 52° and 56° Wedge – AeroTech SteelFiber 110cw S; PXG Romeo 60° Wedge – AeroTech SteelFiber 110cw S, and the PXG Gunboat GEN2 Putter.
