Spin Killing Woods All the Buzz with Senior Tour Players
And this star has been shining brightly on the Tour for a while now as PGA Champions Tour professionals using the new Tour Edge Exotics CBX hybrids and fairway woods earned two Top 5 finishes and three Top 20 finishes at the PowerShares QQQ Championship in the 2nd round of the Champions Tour Playoffs.
And then at the final event of the Charles Schwab Cup where only players ranked in the Top 36 on the PGA Champions Tour made it to the final event in Phoenix. Even when the stakes were highest at the end of the season, five new players that had never played a Tour Edge club in a professional event changed to the new Exotics CBX over the last four weeks of the Champions Tour.
Exotics CBX clubs earned three Top 5 finishes, four Top 10’s and five Top 20 finishes in the 2017 Champions Tour despite only being introduced to players at five total events this season.
Also recently on professional tours for Tour Edge, an Exotics CBX Iron-Wood made its debut on the PGA TOUR at the OHL Classic in Mayakoba in the bag of the #1 ranked player on the 2017 PGA Tour Latinoamérica Tour.
This says so much about the quality of the Tour Edge product as the only consideration for playing the Exotics CBX fairway woods and hybrids being performance-based. The Exotics CBX ranked in the top eight models in play in both the hybrid and fairway wood model counts over the last four events of the season. Tour Edge had the 5th most metalwoods in play among active manufacturers over the last month on tour, according to the Darrel Survey.
The Exotics CBX fairway woods and hybrids are the first ever Titanium face, Stainless Steel body and Carbon Fiber sole hybrid design ever produced.
I have been playing Tour Edge for about 7 years now and thanks to my friends at Golf Trends (Tour Edge Canadian distributor) and blessed to be playing the latest and greatest of what they have to offer. So it came as no surprise to me when the new CBX Hybrid landed in the bags of select players and they loved them.
Although tough to admit, I guess I am getting up to that senior category myself! OK, OK, I am there!
Well known amongst those of us who care and follow Tour Edge is the fact that there are even a few PGA Tour players who have some of the woods (3 wood in particular) under head covers that may identify as something else.
“The entire Exotics CBX line was designed with the tour player in mind,” said Chief Designer and President of Tour Edge David Glod. “It was designed to spin less and with a forward CG. Now these spin-killing woods have taken on a life of their own as far as the buzz that’s out there on how they perform. We have received more requests from tour players, college golfers and mini-tour players on these products than anything else we have ever released and they are starting to make their way onto the PGA TOUR on their own accord.”
The new Exotics CBX fairway woods and hybrid were designed with a multi-material construction that includes the top of the line in Beta Titanium, Hyper Steel and Carbon Composite materials. This unique combination of three different materials helps produce a penetrating ball flight that cuts through windy conditions and lowers side spin rates for greater accuracy.
They are currently the only Titanium face fairway woods and hybrids available for sale in the U.S. market.
The Exotics CBX features a higher CG that is located slightly forward in the club head through the use of a carbon fiber in the sole, which is significantly lighter than stainless steel. This helps to increase ball speed and reduce spin, which makes for less dispersion. Tour Edge’s extremely thin Beta-titanium cup-face enlarges the ideal hitting area on the clubs. It is brazed to stainless steel behind the hitting area which allows the face to flex more at impact.
16 yards longer…
This has led to independent robot tests that have shown the Exotics CBX to average more than 16 yards longer in distance than several of the bestselling fairway woods on the market. The Speed Ramp sole design on the Exotics CBX products provide reduced turf interaction so the club can maintain its speed through the hitting area.
The Exotics CBX Iron-Wood that was put into play on the PGA TOUR features a new ground-breaking high-tensile steel ‘L’ cup face design that pushes the classic iron-wood design to provide maximum forgiveness and explosiveness off the face. Delivering powerful distance with minimal spin, the CBX takes aim at players who want hybrid performance combined with the feel and workability of a traditional forged iron design.
