The company announced that in conjunction with the signings, they have filmed several TV spots to air in 2020 featuring all four of the logo staffers.

“Tour Edge is continuing to make major steps in our branding and consumer awareness efforts and the best spokespeople that we could ask for just happen to be the guys that we already have on our tour staff,” said Executive Vice President of Tour Edge John Craig.

“2020 will be our third year with these players representing Tour Edge and playing our equipment on tour, so filming them for an extensive television advertising campaign is the logical next step in branding Tour Edge,” said Craig.

“These professionals have become very close with us over the last couple years and have really embraced what we are doing as a company. We can’t wait for the world to see the spots we have put together with these legends of the game.”

The Tour Edge spots featuring the tour staff will start airing in January of 2020 on various media, including the Golf Channel. The players will also take part in Tour Edge's sponsorship of PGA Tour Champions Learning Center show on the Golf Channel.

PGA Tour Champions Learning Center, Presented by Tour Edge, is scheduled to air over 40 original episodes in 2020, beginning in January, with Tour Edge prominently featured within each episode. The series also will incorporate Tour Edge staff professionals, providing tips geared toward the amateur golfer.
