NCAA All-American and 2019 NCAA Division I individual champion set to play full arsenal of TaylorMade product as he makes his professional debut this week at the Travelers Championship

Carlsbad, Calif. (June 19, 2019) – Having already added top amateur standout Collin Morikawa to its dominant stable of athletes this summer, TaylorMade Golf Company announced today the addition of yet another amateur standout, consensus collegiate player of the year Matthew Wolff. Per his new multi-year agreement, Matthew Wolff will play TaylorMade’s metalwoods, irons, wedges, putter and ultimately, the company’s flagship golf ball, TP5x. The announcement comes on the heels of the 20-year-old’s decision to forego his final two seasons at Oklahoma State to turn professional.

Wolff, known for his unique and immediately identifiable swing paired with prodigious distance off the tee, has the charisma and demeanor far exceeding his 20 years of age and carries high expectations into his professional debut. The California native made his PGA TOUR debut earlier this season as an amateur at the 2019 Waste Management Phoenix Open on a sponsor’s exemption and is making his professional debut on Tour this week at the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands.

Victorious a school record six times with a 68.7 scoring average as a sophomore – the lowest in the history of college golf – Wolff capped off his tremendous collegiate career with an NCAA Individual title and both the Jack Nicklaus and Fred Haskins awards, given annually to the top collegiate player in the country.

Wolff joins a TaylorMade’s Tour staff that is widely considered the strongest in the industry, which includes Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, John Rahm and Tiger Woods, among others.

BALD HEAD ISLAND, NC – May 15, 2019 – Bald Head Blues, a golf and island-inspired apparel company, distinguished by its golf cart with surfboard logo, announced today that company brand ambassador, Joel Dahmen, fresh off a hot week at the Wells Fargo Championship, will be teeing it up at the upcoming PGA Championship, donning Bald Head Blues.

“Joel is playing some pretty inspired golf, actually he is on a hot streak. At the Wells Fargo Championship, he shot two consecutive rounds of 66 and captured a runner-up position, just three strokes from the winner. Our team is extremely proud of him, and can’t wait to see him navigate Bethpage Black. We believe with his level of accuracy off the tee, we’re going to see some of his best golf yet,” commented Bald Head Blues Founder & CEO, Claude Pope.

In Dahmen’s quest for the Wannamaker Trophy, he will be sporting apparel from Bald Head Blues’ Spring Collection. To combat some of the upcoming inclement weather, he will be wearing the company’s signature performance “Quarter Zip” jacket. He will also wear the highly popular, Albatross Polo golf shirt, in a variety of colors. The Albatross Polo golf shirt features ComfortDry Technology, which is lightweight, promotes moisture wicking, and has a 4-way stretch for ultimate performance. All of Dahmen’s apparel will be embroidered with the Bald Head Blues distinct logo.

Dahmen has enjoyed a successful 2019 PGA TOUR season with his runner-up position at the Wells Fargo, which allowed him to compete at the PGA Championship, but it also secured his 2020 PGA TOUR card. His high level of play also captured a T-9 finish at the Farmers Insurance and a T-12 finish at the Players Championship. He is currently ranked #32 in the Fed Ex Cup points and has won over 1.7 million in prize money.

These notable finishes, and Dahmen’s overall success this season can be attributed to his driving accuracy. He is currently ranked #20th on the PGA TOUR in driving accuracy.

“Bethpage has some pretty difficult rough, imposing bunkers, and awkward angles, but look for Joel to be in the middle of the fairway,” added Pope.

In 2018, Dahmen signed a two year Bald Head Blues endorsement deal. Since joining the Bald Head Blues team, he is playing some of the best golf of his career.

 

About Bald Head Blues

“Clothing for Coasting”

For over 25 years, the Pope family has enjoyed the wonder and majesty of Bald Head Island with its acres of beaches, untouched marshes, maritime forests, pristine harbor, and casual coastal lifestyle. It’s a special place where nature’s abundance and casual lifestyle inspired the formation of Bald Head Blues. An apparel company that embraces the island’s extraordinary experience.

Unique to the island is its mode of transportation. Locals and tourists alike use electric golf carts to get around and more than often they are hauling beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, and surf boards. This island lifestyle where a quick ride to the beach becomes an adventure is represented by the Bald Head Blues logo.

All pieces in the Bald Head Blues Collections are fun, casual, colorful and classic. They employ high-performance fabrics, refined designs and an inimitable attention to details. The new 2019 Spring Collection which includes Aruba, Coral, Lavender, Regatta, and Spring magnify the island’s vibrant colors. Each series is bold, fresh, and energetic.

Bald Head Blues is known for their coastal and island style but their collections also incorporate technology like “Comfort Flex” which combines Pima cotton with the performance and stretch of spandex. For rounds played in the heat, Bald Head Blues has utilized “Comfort Dry.” This polyester/spandex blend is moisture wicking, lightweight and has a 4-way stretch for ultimate performance. The new Albatross Polo is also treated with a UPF 50+ for UV protection.

These high-performance technologies and fabrics are worn by Bald Head Blues brand ambassadors and PGA TOUR Professionals Joel Dahmen and Martin Piller. They both face extreme weather changes on the tour and their Bald Head Blues polos keep them comfortable and ready to compete.

Bald Head Blues transports you to a place you want to be – even if you aren’t there. Maybe it’s to the golf course, the tennis courts or on the beach. For the Pope Family, its Bald Head Island. Where do you want to go?

 

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.”
