Exotics staff player Scott McCarron won the 2019 Mitsubishi Electric Classic on the PGA Tour Champions Sunday playing a Tour Edge Exotics CBX 119 hybrid; a 19-degree with a Project X Even Flow Black shaft, the same shaft that is available to consumers as a stock offering in the CBX 119 line.

The wire-to-wire win is the third victory on the PGA Tour Champions for McCarron since switching to Exotics in 2018. McCarron, who wears a Tour Edge Exotics logo on his sleeve, climbed five spots to 1st place on the official Charles Schwab Cup money list with a total of $624,118 earned so far in 2019. He earned $270,000 with the win and took the outright lead in the Charles Schwab Cup points race.

He finished 2nd overall in the final Charles Schwab Cup standings last season after winning two times with Exotics in the bag in 2018. He has finished in the Top 5 in each of the past three seasons – 2nd in 2018, 3rd in 2017 and 4th in 2016. The win was the 2nd of the 2019 PGA Tour Champions season for a player with Exotics clubs in play after seven events played. Tom Lehman won the season-opening event in Hawaii with an Exotics CBX 119 hybrid and a CBX Iron-Wood and currently ranks 5th in the Charles Schwab Cup money standings.

Exotics CBX clubs have now been a part of eight victories and 11 runner-up finishes on the PGA Tour Champions since collecting the first win at the 2018 Chubb Classic. This means Exotics clubs have finished 1st or 2nd in 19 of the last 32 PGA TOUR Champions events (59%).

After seven events on the 2019 PGA Tour Champions season, Exotics metalwoods have been in play for two victories, five Top 5 finishes, nine Top 10 finishes, and 22 Top 25 finishes. Tour Edge is keeping count of these tour statistics on a tour scoreboard located on http://www.touredge.com.

The victory represents the fourth Top 5 finish in the last six events for McCarron, including a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finish. McCarron shot 7-under at the TPC Sugarloaf golf course in Duluth, Georgia with a total of 12 birdies in extremely tough conditions. The 53-year-old Californian birdied Holes 13 and 15 to secure his first victory of the season and his eighth win on the PGA Tour Champions. McCarron held a three-shot lead headed into the final round. On Saturday, he fired a 68 in the morning to finish the rain-delayed first round and shot a 70 in the afternoon to reach 6-under-par.

“It was a grind all the way. It was a tough day again,” McCarron said. “The wind was up, it was very cold, tough to get the ball close. You can see with the scores. … The golf course is playing very difficult. And 2 under, I felt like I left a couple out there, but I also made a couple really good par saves, too.” McCarron collected his ninth victory on the PGA Tour Champions. He won three times in his PGA TOUR career, including two wins the BellSouth Classic at this very same course, TPC Sugarloaf, in 1997 and 2001. He once again triumphed at TPC Sugarloaf, despite wind, rain, new 9-hole addition and all-new grass changes at the facility. “It’s a long time,” McCarron said. “But again, once you come back to a golf course you play well at, those memories start coming back to you. You start seeing lines off tees that you took, you start seeing maybe some of the putts you made coming down the stretch. Even though it’s a long time, I still have a pretty good memory of the good stuff.”

PGA Tour Champions Players Finish Near Top Of Leaderboard At
 Charles Schwab Cup Using Zero Friction Golf Tee And Glove

 

OAKBROOK TERRACE, IL (November 15, 2018) – The recent success on professional golf tours for Zero Friction, maker of high-quality, technologically advanced products for golfers worldwide, continued this past weekend at the PGA Tour Champions’ season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship in Arizona.
Zero Friction had two top-10 finishes by players using the company’s ZFT Maxx 3 Prong Tees, and a 13th-place finish from a player using the tees and the Zero Friction glove.

The ZFT Maxx Tees are extra-large to make it easier and faster to set the ball on. The short Hybrid tees set up at the perfect height for irons, hybrids, and driving irons. ZFT Maxx system tees offer the same great design, distance and performance as the original 3 and 4-prong tees, with 66% reduced contact area for less resistance and more distance.
“We are thrilled that the world’s best players are enjoying success using our products,” said John Iacono, founder and President of Zero Friction. “Our multi-prong performance tees are what the company was founded on, and it is exciting to see tour players benefit from the performance of our tees in competition again.”

Two years ago Zero Friction launched a true breakthrough product, the GPS Distance Pro glove, which comes with a lightweight GPS device on the flap, providing accurate distances for over 35,000 golf courses worldwide.

This year the company introduced two new products that received rave reviews at the PGA Merchandise Show. The Cabretta Elite golf glove is an upgrade to the original Cabretta glove released three years ago. The Cabretta leather provides a solid grip in wet or humid weather. The reinforced Lycra throughout fingers, back of hand and palm allow for maximum strength, durability, and enhanced breathability.

Also new are the  Spectra™ matte finish distance golf balls. Matte finish golf balls are the hottest product in golf right now, as they are easier to see in the air and on the ground, so they speed up play and prevent lost balls. The 80 compression, 2 piece golf balls can add up to 10 additional yards and straighter shots due to less sidespin.
Spectra matte finish distance golf balls are available in 4 ball sleeves, dozens, and blister packs with tees. They are also available as Supertubes, which include Zero Friction performance tees, a one-size compression fit glove, and Spectra golf balls. The Spectra golf balls are available in men’s, ladies’, and junior versions.
