Tour Player Joe Durant choosing Exotics C721 Driver Wins, Tour Edge Staff Player Bernhard Langer finishes 2nd at the Ally Challenge
A now 8-time winner on the PGA TOUR and PGA TOUR Champions won the 2021 Ally Challenge on Sunday playing an Exotics C721 Driver.
The Ally champion shot rounds of 65-66-68 at Warwick Hills G&C to secure the victory. The winner also won with Tour Edge in the bag when he won the 2018 Chubb Classic with an Exotics fairway and hybrid in play.
The winner has been playing a 10.5-degree C721 with a Fujikura Ventus Blue shaft over the past three events he’s played since the start of July. He hit 32/42 fairways (76%) for the tournament. He is not under contract to play the Exotics C721 Driver.
Thirteen different players have put an Exotics C721 Driver into tournament play this year.
Tour Edge staff player Bernhard Langer, who shot his age for the first time with a 64 on his birthday in the first round of the Ally Challenge Friday, finished solo runner-up at the event for his 4th Top 5 finish of 2021.
With the runner-up finish, Langer vaulted back into the #1 ranking in the 20/21 Charles Schwab Cup standings with eight events remaining.
“This was a special day for us as I was able to follow the last group Sunday being a local Michigander,” said Tour Edge founder and President, as well as chief club designer, David Glod. “To witness a 1-2 finish and to experience it with our staffer Bernhard on his birthday weekend with a runner-up was very cool.”
Here are some other numbers for Tour Edge at the Ally Challenge:
- 17 different players (20% of the field) played 62 Tour Edge clubs in the event.
- 5 players were in play with Exotics drivers at the event.
- 26 different players have put a Tour Edge driver in play since the 2020 season.
- 4 Exotics iron sets in play (John Daly, Ken Duke, Bernhard Langer and Tim Petrovic).
