Former Masters Champ, Canadian Lefty Mike Weir and Czech Star Alec Cejka
……….and here come the 722’s
Tour Edge Golf made a couple of announcements recently that hit particularly close to home on many fronts, especially being based here in Canada.
As many of you long time subscribers know, our publisher Claudio DeMarchi has been a long time (10+ years) dedicated Tour Edge player. I myself can’t get enough of the product.
Over the past few years Tour Edge has taken the Champions Tour by storm. Perhaps their biggest signing has been Bernhard Langer, who, in his 1st season (2021) with Tour Edge completed his “Super Season” by taking home the season long Schwab Cup. We can forget that in 2019, staffer Scott McCarron also claimed that same Cup! Pretty obvious, they play with it because they win with it!
You have all seen that publisher DeMarchi has spent some time in the Czech Republic recently and has a working relationship with the Czech Tourism office. Is it a sign…… Lo and behold Tour Edge has announced that Czech-German star Alex Cejka who just completed a story-book rookie season on the PGA TOUR Champions in 2021, winning two Major Championships in a row at the Regions Traditions and the Senior PGA Championship, has joined their Professional Staff.
……….. AND, even closer to home, homegrown Canadian, Mike Weir, former Masters Champion and for as long as I can remember a Taylor made staffer has signed a multi year deal with Tour Edge. In 29 events played in the 2020/21 season, Weir picked up a victory, four runner-up finishes and 12 Top 10 finishes. The famous left-handed Weir will continue to put more Exotics in the bag over the course of a multi-year agreement that has him sporting a Tour Edge logo on his hat and carrying a Tour Edge staff bag in tournament play.
Tour Edge Golf has an impressive stable of golfers, other than the above mentioned they include Duffy Waldorf, Tom Lehman, and Tim Petrovic to name a few. We all saw John Daly playing Tour Edge in the exciting Father Son Challenge and you can bet your bottom dollar that there are a number of clubs hiding under imposter coverings.
David Glod, founder and President of Tour Edge, on the two new players joining Tour Edge: “To be able to sign these players, two of the top rookies to come to PGA TOUR Champions this past season, shows just how committed we are to this tour and how much we have enjoyed proving ourselves as a top performer on this legendary stage.”
Another exciting year for Tour Edge!!!
Bring on the 722’s
One of the press releases that caught my eye, and literally made my eyes widen was a press release from Tour Edge Golf. You know, that OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) from Batavia, Illinois that you may not have even considered. It’s a company that has been on the rise – in my opinion – since 2019. That was the year where they made it known to the golf community that you can produce premium golf equipment with premium components without the premium price tag.
In 2019, their Exotics EXS range impressed and they continued to build on that in 2020 with their EXS 220 line-up. How did they follow up from that successful range? Well, led by President David Glod, they simply put their noses to the grindstone and developed golf clubs that were enough to entice legend and PGA Tour Champions Charles Schwab Cup winner, Bernhard Langer to sign a deal to play their equipment. Those clubs were 2021’s Exotics 721 series. The improvement over 2020 was huge. Better sound, better feel, and the line-up boasted performance for days.
Now, in 2022, they’ve made a couple of nice signings. I’m curious to see the influence that Mike Weir has both on Tour Edge’s visibility, especially in Canada and their presence with left-handed golfers in the consumer sector. The lack of left-handed options has been a sticking point for many, as inquiries to The Next Tee have told me. Moreover, Weir is sponsored by Golf Town and we hope that we will now see the entire Tour Edge product line fully visible hands on.
The Exotics 722 range looks even more serious than the 721 Series and targets two different types of golfers. The “E” series or Extreme Spec is for the golfer looking for a little bit of help (E722 driver is 460cc), meanwhile, the “C” or Competitive Spec is targeted towards the better player (smaller profile etc). Tour Edge Golf has incorporated some of their technology from recent past iterations, like SpeedTested shafts, Ridgeback Technology, DiamondFace Technology. However, new to the development of the C722 is what’s referred to as RyzerSole Technology. RyzerSole Technology consists of three separate elements “on the sole of the clubhead; an unprecedented 90-grams placed as low as possible in the sole of the clubhead (80-permanent Tungsten weight and a 10-gram adjustable weight) as part of a sole rail that extends from leading edge to trailing edge” The purpose of this is to create a “super-low and forward CG, high-launching shots with amazingly low spin rates, decreased turf interaction and maximum ball speed off the face.”
So, if you’re looking for new clubs this season, be sure to check out the Exotics 722 Series from Tour Edge Golf. I cannot wait to swing them. Tour Edge Golf
