Tour Edge Exotics Staff Players Earn Runner-Up Finish, Four Top 15’s at Cologuard Classic

Exotics clubs have finished 1st or 2nd in 18 of last 29 PGA TOUR Champions events (62%)

(RELEASE) — Tour Edge continued its year-long hot streak this week with a runner-up finish by Tour Edge Exotics staff player Scott McCarron and four Top 15 finishes at the PGA Tour Champions’ Cologuard Classic in Tucson, AZ.

The 2nd place finish by McCarron marked the 11th runner-up finish for a professional playing Tour Edge Exotics since the beginning of 2018. This is on top of the seven victories earned on the PGA Tour Champions by players using Tour Edge Exotics over that same time span.

In 2019, players using Tour Edge Exotics have earned one victory (Tom Lehman in the season-opening Hawaii event) and a total of three Top 5 finishes, seven Top 10’s and 16 Top 25’s in the first four events.  

The four Exotics staff players who feature Tour Edge Exotics logos on their gear this year all finished in the Top 15 of the event this week at the Catalina course at Omni Tucson National Resort, the home course for the PGA TOUR’s Tucson Open for 30 years and home of the Cologuard Classic since 2015.

McCarron, who wears a Tour Edge Exotics logo on his sleeve, finished in 2nd place at 13-under-par. He fired a 69 Sunday that included six birdies on the back nine.

McCarron is playing an 18-degree Exotics CBX 119 hybrid in a Project X Even Flow Black shaft, the same shaft that is available to consumers as a stock offering in the CBX 119 line.
Fellow Exotics staffers Duffy Waldorf, Tim Petrovic and Lehman all finished tied for 15th at the popular Tucson event.

Waldorf shot a 68 to climb 19 spots Sunday while playing an Exotics CBX 13.5-degree 3-wood and a 17-degree CBX hybrid with a Fujikura Atmos 8 Blue shaft. He is wearing a Tour Edge Exotics hat and shirt and carrying the Exotics CBX 119 bag this season.

Petrovic climbed 10 spots Sunday shooting a 69 playing three Exotics clubs. He is currently playing an Exotics CBX 15-degree 3-wood, an 18-degree Exotics CBX 119 5-wood and his “favorite club in the bag”, the Exotics #3 CBX Iron-Wood. Petrovic is also wearing a Tour Edge Exotics hat and shirt this season.

Lehman finished T-15th after shooting a consistent seven-under par 70-70-72 for the three rounds. Lehman is playing a CBX 119 18-degree hybrid with a Project X Even Flow Black shaft and a #2 CBX Iron-Wood. He is wearing a Tour Edge Exotics logo on his chest and carrying a CBX Exotics 119 staff bag this season.

“All four of our Exotics logo staffers played well this week and gave us great television exposure with Scott McCarron leading the way for our 18th win or runner-up finish on the Champions Tour in the last 29 events,” said Tour Edge President David Glod. “In conjunction with the advertising we are doing within the PGA Tour Champions events, Tour Edge was all over the Golf Channel coverage.”
