TOUR EDGE CONTINUES TO TAKE OFF AND ITS EXOTICS TOUR-WINNING LINE LEAD THE WAY
Tour Edge put up a banner year in 2018 in which they saw their best sales and best market share numbers in company history, their most wins on the PGA Tours in a year (7 victories), their driver winning the Women’s World Long Drive Championship for the 2nd time, their most aggressive advertising and consumer awareness to date and a third straight year of explosive growth.
THAT IS A LOT TO ACCOMPLISH IN THEIR 33RD YEAR AS A CLUB MANUFACTURER.
Let’s take a closer look at their recent success and why this year is shaping up to be another milestone year for Tour Edge and why 2019 is the year of Exotics.
• Tour Edge Exotics started off the year with a win in January by Exotics staffer Tom Lehman in Hawaii.
• On April 16th, the Exotics EXS Driver set a world record with a monster 413 yard drive by Exotics staff player Phillis Meti.
• On April 21st, Exotics staffer Scott McCarron won the Mitsubishi Electric Championship, the 10th win on the PGA Tours for Tour Edge in 15 months.
• On May 5th, McCarron won again for his 2nd title in three weeks at the Insperity Invitational.
Exotics clubs have finished 1st or 2nd in 21 of the last 37 PGA TOUR Champions events and now own the longest three drives in the history of World Long Drive. It seems there is just no stopping Chicago-land based Tour Edge!
Exotics CBX 119
The new Exotics CBX 119 fairway woods and hybrids are considered to be the best of the best in metalwoods for better players seeking distance and low-spin. These clubs continue the CBX technology of a Titanium face combo brazed onto a stainless steel body in conjunction with a carbon fiber sole. This remains the only design to ever incorporate Titanium, steel and carbon and the hybrid remains the only Titanium faced version in golf.
Master club designer and President of Tour Edge David Glod was able to save more weight through the use of more carbon fiber on the sole, giving these clubs already known for their spin-killing properties even less spin. He was also able to raise the MOI on the both the fairway and the hybrid by widening the Speed Ramp Sole on the sole of the club by 15%.
McCarron won the 2019 Mitsubishi Electric Classic and the 2019 Insperity Invitational with an Exotics CBX 119 hybrid in the bag and vaulted up to No. 1 ranking on the PGA Tour Champions. He now leads the money rankings on the PGA Tour Champions by over $450,000 over the 2nd ranked player after a runner-up finish at the Senior PGA Championship. The 2nd place finish for McCarron at the all-important Major represents the 7th Top 5 finish in the last 10 events for McCarron, including two wins, two runner-ups and 3rd place finish. McCarron has won four times on the PGA Tour Champions since switching to Exotics in 2018 and has called the CBX 119 “THE BEST HYBRID I’VE EVER PLAYED.”
Tour Edge announced that Lehman, McCarron, Duffy Waldorf and Tim Petrovic all signed on to be on the Tour Edge Exotics professional staff. No. 1 ranked McCarron wears a Tour Edge Exotics logo on his sleeve, No. 6 ranked Lehman carries the Exotics CBX 119 staff bag and features a logo on his chest, while Petrovic wears Tour Edge headwear and has the logo on his sleeve and Waldorf wears Tour Edge logoed headwear and shirt and carries an Exotics CBX 119 staff bag. All in all, Tour Edge attracted over 60 different players to play Exotics clubs on the PGA Tours since last season, most of which are the new CBX 119 fairway woods, CBX 119 hybrids and CBX Iron-Woods.
The Exotics EXS line is loaded with technology and innovation at prices designed to be the best bang for your buck in golf in the ultra-premium sector.
The EXS Driver has been put into play on the PGA Tours, and also set a world record with a 413 yard drive by Exotics staff player Phillis Meti. The No. 1 ranked woman world long driver, Meti, hit the Exotics EXS Driver to perfection to set two new world records for the longest drive in women’s long drive history. Meti has won two World Long Drive Championships with Exotics drivers.
Tour Edge considers the EXS line of clubs to be pound for pound the best golf clubs in technology, performance, price, quality of materials and craftsmanship in the market place today. MyGolfSpy named the Exotics EXS Driver as the best value driver in their 2019 Most Wanted Driver testing.
The EXS driver, fairway metal and hybrid all feature a myriad of game-enhancing innovations. For example, the loaded-with-technology EXS driver features a Flight Tuning System (FTS) that includes two interchangeable weights, an adjustable hosel that allows for plus two or minus two degrees in loft, Roll Face Technology for an expanded sweet spot, Dual Carbon Fiber placement for ideal weight distribution and a new and improved SlipStream™ Sole for faster clubhead speed.
“This is the most technology we’ve ever been able to fit into a design and each one works in concert with one another to provide the best performing driver possible,” said Tour Edge President, founder and Master Club Designer David Glod.
Their aggressive price points ($299.99 for the Exotics EXS driver, $229.99 for the EXS fairway metal and $199.99 for the EXS hybrid, all clubs that feature a genuine Mitsubishi Tensei shaft that retails for $140 on its own!) and Tour Edge is currently advertising the Exotics EXS line heavily on the Golf Channel and across the golf industry media to create even more brand awareness than it has ever received.
ALL SIGNS POINT TO ANOTHER BANNER YEAR FOR TOUR EDGE, WITH THEIR NEW EXOTICS PRODUCTS LEADING THE WAY ON THE PROFESSIONAL TOURS AND IN THE MARKETPLACE.
