McCarron had the low round Sunday at Narita Golf Club at 5-under par.

The 53-year-old Californian hit a tournament-clinching 246 yard shot to 20 feet with his Exotics CBX 119 hybrid on the penultimate hole to take a 3-shot lead, a club he calls the “best hybrid I’ve ever played.”

McCarron, who wears a Tour Edge Exotics logo on his sleeve, is the current No. 1 ranked player in the PGA Tour Champions with $1,766,221 earned in tournament winnings this year.

He leads the No. 2 ranked player by a whopping $831,052.

“We are having a blast watching the meteoric play of our staff player, Scott McCarron,” said Tour Edge President and Master Club Designer David Glod. “Scotty has brought us a new level of exposure and awareness, as has all of the over 60 players who have put Tour Edge into play on the PGA Tour Champions over the last 18 months .”

The Japan Championship win represents the 8th Top 5 finish in the last 12 events for McCarron, including three wins, two runner-ups and 3rd place finish.

“I'm doing everything I can to win the Charles Schwab Cup,” McCarron said. “That's my goal.”

McCarron’s three victories in 2019 have come in the last six weeks.

  • On April 21st, Exotics staffer Scott McCarron won the Mistubishi Electric Championship at TPC Sugarloaf.
  • On May 5th, McCarron won again for his 2nd title in three weeks at the Insperity Invitational at The Woodlands Country Club.
