Perez has been playing PXG irons since October of 2016 and has recorded four top-ten finishes during that time, including a victory at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. The win at Mayakoba was Perez’s first PGA Tour victory since the 2009 Bob Hope Classic.
“Pat’s a guy who doesn’t back down,” PXG founder Bob Parsons said, in a release. “He’s been incredibly successful in his comeback from many months battling an injury, and is now playing some of the best golf of his career. I’m thrilled that Pat has already found success with PXG and look forward to counting him among our PXG Troops.”
Perez joins PGA Tour players Zach Johnson, James Hahn, Chris Kirk, Ryan Moore, Charl Schwartzel, Billy Horschel and Charles Howell III on the PXG roster.
“Since adding PXG clubs to my bag, I’m playing great golf,” Perez said, in the release. “The clubs have an unbelievable feel. I hit them higher, straighter and farther. But for me it’s all about distance control. There’s not an iron on the planet that can hold a candle to PXG.”
Perez’s first tournament as an official member of the PXG team will be the WGC-Mexico Championship this week near Mexico City.
