Tour Edge Exotics Staffer Scott McCarron Wins in Japan for Third Victory of 2019

Exotics clubs 1st or 2nd place in 22 out of last 37 PGA Tour Champions events

(RELEASE) - Tour Edge Exotics staff player Scott McCarron won by three shots at the 2019 Mastercard Japan Championship on the PGA Tour Champions Sunday in Narita, Japan.

His victory is the 10th win for Exotics clubs on the PGA Tour Champions over the last two seasons, five of which have come from the No. 1 ranked McCarron. McCarron had the low round Sunday at Narita Golf Club at 5-under par.

He 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.

The 53-year-old Californian has earned six Top 5 finishes in the last eight Major championships since joining the Exotics staff last season.

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.

Other Top Finishes for Exotics in Japan
Another player with an Exotics CBX 119 hybrid in play in Japan finished 10th, while a new player to Tour Edge finished 17th this week following up a 5th place finish last week in Iowa with the Exotics CBX Iron-Wood in play.

After 13 events on the 2019 PGA Tour Champions season, Exotics have been in play for four victories, 12 Top 5 finishes, 19 Top 10 finishes and 44 Top 25 finishes.
