Tour Edge is another smaller equipment company found in PGA Tour winners' bags
Last week, it wasn’t just at the WGC Accenture Match Play Championship where newer equipment companies were on parade.
Brian Gay, winner of the Mayakoba Golf Classic at Riviera Maya-Cancun in Mexico played a Tour Edge Exotics fairway wood (CB2 #3) to win his first PGA Tour event.
Tour Edge, HQ’ed in Batavia, Illinois, has moved from being a low-priced budget-golf equipment company to being a genuine leader in equipment innovation, especially with respect to the materials it uses.
A Tour Edge Exotics fairway wood is also getting some serious bag time from Zach Johnson, last year’s Master’s champ.
What does this mean for average players? Nothing, really. A solid club is a solid club, no matter who makes it or plays it. On the other hand, for those golfers who feel compelled to play the same brand of club as Tour pros, options are expanding considerably.
