Tour Edge Earns Top 5 Finish, Four Top 10’s at PGA Tour Champions’ Oasis Championship

Players flocking to brand new Exotics CBX 119 metalwoods

After starting the 2019 PGA Tour Champions season with a victory by Exotics staff player Tom Lehman in Hawaii, Tour Edge continued its now year-long hot streak this week with a Top 5 finish and four Top 10 finishes at the Oasis Championship in Boca Raton, Fla.

This week was the first PGA Tour Champions event that the new Exotics CBX 119 metalwoods were introduced to the professionals on the driving range during the practice days prior to the event.

Over 80% of the metalwoods in play at the Oasis Championship for Tour Edge ended up being the brand new Exotics CBX 119 this week.

Tour Edge Exotics staff player Scott McCarron, who now wears a Tour Edge Exotics logo on his sleeve, finished 5th at 11-under-par. He fired a 67 at The Old Course at Broken Sound golf course Sunday to move up from 13th to 5th place.

McCarron was playing an18-degree Exotics CBX 119 hybrid in a Project X Even Flow Black X shaft, the same shaft that is available to consumers as a stock offering in the CBX 119 line.

Two players finished tied for 8th at 10-under-par for the event playing new Exotics CBX 119 metalwoods. One T8 finisher is a player who won with Tour Edge in his bag last season at the PURE Insurance Championship at Pebble Beach. He was fit into the new CBX 119 15-degree 3-wood this week on the practice range in Boca Raton.

The other T8 finisher is a new player to Tour Edge is a 15-time PGA TOUR winner and a former Masters winner. He put a 20-degree CBX 119 hybrid into play with a Project X Even Flow Black X shaft.

Tour Edge Exotics staffer Tim Petrovic finished T10 playing his trusty #2 Exotics CBX Iron-Wood that he loves off the tee and with a new Exotics CBX 119 5-wood in the bag.

Lehman also played the same CBX 119 hybrid and CBX Iron-Wood that he won with in Hawaii. The #2 Exotics CBX Iron-Wood was fit with a Project X Even Flow Black X shaft this week. He finished 19th at 7-under-par on the event and now sits 2nd in the official 2019 Charles Schwab Cup money standings.

“To start the season with a win, two Top 5 finishes and five Top 10’s in the first two events is a dream start to the season and perfectly picks up right where we left off on our huge year last year on Champions that saw us in the bag for seven victories,” said Tour Edge President and Master Club Designer David Glod. “The logos and staff bags we have secured for 2019 with our staff players of McCarron, Lehman, Petrovic and Waldorf is already paying off dividends in television exposure and beyond.”

Thirteen total Exotics clubs were in play this week in Boca Raton, according to the Darrell Survey. The Tour Edge clubs in play include seven hybrids, four fairways and two utility irons. Of the 11 metalwoods in play this week, nine were the brand new CBX 119.

This week the PGA Tour Champions heads to Naples, Fla. for the 2019 Chubb Classic. The Chubb Classic is the event that started out the winning streak for Tour Edge in 2018 when a player not endorsed by the company won the event playing an Exotics CBX fairway wood and hybrid. The player then told the national TV audience that we won largely in part to his new 3–wood that “won’t go left.”
