What PXG Must Prove To Win Its Taylor Made Suit

Golf.com's Michael McCann tries to decipher what PXG must do to prove its patent suit against TaylorMade says this will come down to a battle over "new" and "existing" designs.

The lawsuit referenced by Parsons was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona and is embodied in a 277-page complaint authored by attorneys from the law firms Loeb & Loeb and Jennings, Strouss & Salmon. The complaint asserts that TaylorMade has infringed upon multiple patents related to PXG's "revolutionary iron," which purportedly contains "an expanded sweet spot, having an ultra-thin club face, and an elastic polymer material injected in the hollowbodied club head."

PXG contends that the design of TaylorMade's P790 irons copies patent-protected designs for PXG's clubs.
