What We Bring to the Game
Integrity. Relationships. Leadership. Innovation. Passion.
Here at PG, we are passionate about building lasting relationships with each other and with our customers. We strive to blend youthful exuberance with seasoned veterans to create a synergy that satisfies the needs of our growing company and customer base. We appreciate hearing from our customers and are always striving to improve with innovative products that increase profits and exceptional customer service.
PG’s founders CEO Gary Krueger (pictured left) and VP/Partner David Jones (pictured right), former golf professionals and golf teammates at Texas A&M, shared a common vision. They saw diamonds in the rough (actually in the hazards) of golf courses everywhere. The errant golf shots, hit daily by golfers around the world, provide a never-ending supply of high quality golf balls. These balls lost in golf course hazards (many lost after only one hit) can be retrieved, recycled and resold with an economic advantage for the consumer. In addition, retrieving and recycling lost golf balls provides very worthwhile ecological advantages.
So what began in 1992 as an experimental hobby (washing salvaged golf balls in laundry machines) quickly evolved into a niche business with room for substantial growth. PG Professional Golf now staffs over 100 employees, has retrieval contracts with thousands of courses nationwide and ships over 40 million golf balls each year to mass merchants, sporting goods and golf retailers across the globe. Recognized as industry leaders, our focus is to provide excellent quality golf balls at unbeatable prices and we are proud that Reload® recycled golf balls is now the number one selling recycled golf ball brand in the world.
