Tour Edge Exotics in Play for 14th Top 5 Finish of 2019 on PGA Tour Champions
Players using Tour Edge golf clubs on the PGA Tour Champions earned 2nd and 4th place for a total of four Top 25 finishes at the American Family Insurance Classic in Madison, Wis. Sunday.
A two-time U.S. Open champion played an Exotics CBX 119 hybrid to 15-under-par en route to a three-way playoff that eventually led to a 2nd place finish.
The runner-up is the 23rd time a player playing Tour Edge Exotics has finished in 1st or 2nd place in the last 38 PGA Tour Champions events.
“To have either won or finished runner-up in 60% of the last 38 events has been absolutely huge for Tour Edge in planting our flag on the PGA Tour Champions,” said Tour Edge President and Master Club Designer David Glod. “That’s over $5 million in prize money with our clubs just with these wins and runner-up finishes.”
Tour Edge Exotics staff player Duffy Waldorf finished in 4th place with a CBX fairway wood and hybrid in play. Waldorf shots rounds of 67-67-68 to finish one shot back of the playoff.
The Top 5 finish was his best finish of the year and his 8th Top 25 out of 13 events played this season. His Tour Edge Exotics hat and bag were highly visible during the Golf Channel tournament coverage.
Tour Edge staffers Scott McCarron and Tim Petrovic both finished in the Top 25 in Wisconsin. Both players shot 7-under-par to finish tied for 22nd. McCarron was the defending champion this week, having won the American Family Insurance in 2018.
McCarron, who wears a Tour Edge Exotics logo on his sleeve, is the current No. 1 ranked player in the PGA Tour Champions with $1,787,761 earned in tournament winnings this year. He leads the No. 2 ranked player by a whopping $774,288.
After 14 events on the 2019 PGA Tour Champions season, Exotics have been in play for four victories, 14 Top 5 finishes, 21 Top 10 finishes and 48 Top 25 finishes.
Ten total Tour Edge Exotics clubs were in play this week at the University Ridge golf course, the home golf course for the University of Wisconsin Badgers.
