Players Using Tour Edge Exotics Finish 1-2 at Senior Players Championship

11th victory for Tour Edge on PGA Tour Champions in the last 18 months

Players using Tour Edge golf clubs at the Senior Players Championship finished in 1st and 2nd place Sunday at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio.

A former two-time U.S. Open champion played an Exotics CBX 119 hybrid to 6-under-par en route to a two-shot victory.

He made birdies on both of the last two holes in the final round to secure the Major championship title.

The win earned him $420,000 and an exemption into next year’s PGA TOUR Players Championship.

The winner has earned nine Top 25 finishes in his last 10 PGA Tour Champions events since putting the Exotics CBX 119 into play, including a runner-up finish June 23rd in Wisconsin.

It was the first professional victory in 10 years for the popular South African.

The win and runner-up finish is the 25th time a player using Tour Edge Exotics clubs has finished in 1st or 2nd place in the last 40 PGA Tour Champions events.

Tour Edge Exotics staff player Tim Petrovic finished in 2nd place at the Senior Players with an array of Tour Edge clubs in play. He plays Exotics CBX fairway woods, hybrids and iron-woods. Petrovic has earned seven runner-up finishes since he started playing Exotics clubs, including three at Major events.

“To finish 1-2 at the prestigious Senior Players Championship and to have finished 1st or 2nd in over 60% of the past 40 Champions events has really helped spread the word on what Tour Edge can do to help the best players in the world play even better,” said Tour Edge President and Master Club Designer David Glod.

Tour Edge staff player Scott McCarron finished 7th in Ohio for his 10th Top 10 finish out of 16 events played this season.

His three wins with Exotics this season give McCarron five total victories since he started playing Tour Edge Exotics clubs in 2018.

McCarron, who wears a Tour Edge Exotics logo on his sleeve, is the current No. 1 ranked player on the PGA Tour Champions with $1,991,805 earned in tournament winnings this year.

Exotics staffer Tom Lehman finished 11th at the Senior Players Championship playing a mixture of Exotics clubs. Lehman was playing three Exotics CBX Iron-Wood utility clubs as his long irons and calls the hollow-body design “truly amazing.”

Lehman is playing in the Open Championship this week at Royal Portrush.

Tour Edge staffer Duffy Waldorf finished 23rd at the rough and tough Firestone course.

A total of five players finished in the Top 25 this week at the Senior Players playing Tour Edge, including all four logo staff players for the brand.

After 16 events on the 2019 PGA Tour Champions season, Exotics have been in play for five victories, 16 Top 5 finishes, 25 Top 10 finishes and 57 Top 25 finishes.
