Tour Edge Signs Tim Petrovic to Hat/Shirt Logo and Club Staff Deal
Tour Edge announced today that Tim Petrovic has officially signed a deal to endorse Tour Edge Exotics and to play their metalwoods on the PGA Tour Champions in 2019. Petrovic will feature Tour Edge Exotics logos on his headwear and shirts.
“I am excited to rejoin the Tour Edge team and wear the Tour Edge logo in 2019. My success last year was largely due to the reliability and performance of my Exotics clubs. They always came through when I called upon them leading me to 5 second place finishes on the Champions Tour.”
Petrovic served as an Exotics CBX staff player in 2018. He played Tour Edge Exotics CBX fairway woods, hybrids and iron-woods all year en route to a career year.
Petrovic finished 9th in the final Charles Schwab Cup points and money standings in 2018 while playing two Exotics CBX fairway woods and two Exotics CBX Iron-Woods, as well as an Exotics CBX hybrid from time to time.
Petrovic earned six Top 10 finishes on the PGA Tour Champions, but five out of those six Top 10’s were runner-up finishes, including high-profile 2nd place finishes at the major KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, the major U.S. Senior Open Championship and the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship. He finished in the Top 25 in 12 of the 23 events he played in 2018.
This year, Petrovic will be wearing Tour Edge Exotics logoed headwear and sporting a Tour Edge Exotics logo on his chest for the first time and will also expand his club usage to other categories with Tour Edge Exotics clubs.
“What a year Tim Petrovic had last year on the PGA Tour Champions,” said Tour Edge President David Glod. “He proved that he can hang with anyone out there and that he is a force to be reckoned with. He is one of the players bringing a new competitive and fiery spirit to the PGA Tour Champions and we are proud to have signed Tim to a deal where he can show off that he is playing our clubs while he is out there competing. A saying we have around the office whenever he tees off is ‘Go Low Petro’ and we look forward to saying that a lot this year!”
Petrovic will make his season debut February 8th at the Oasis Championship in Boca Raton, Fl.
Petrovic will also take part in Tour Edge’s sponsorship of the PGA Tour Champions Learning Center show on the Golf Channel. The PGA Tour Learning Center is a popular Golf Channel television show that features professional tips and instruction featuring the legends of golf from the PGA Tour Champions.
PGA Tour Champions Learning Center, Presented by Tour Edge, is scheduled to air 43 episodes in 2019, beginning January 22nd, with Tour Edge prominently featured within each episode. The series also will incorporate Tour Edge Exotics Staff Professionals like Petrovic, Tom Lehman, Scott McCarron and Duffy Waldorf among others providing tips geared toward the amateur golfer.
“We set up on the range at every event in 2018 and over 50 different professionals started playing Exotics,” said Glod. “The players have been very thankful for the service we are providing them and it has led to some great relationships and great feedback for me on club design.”
In all, over 50 players have put over 300 Exotics clubs into play since Exotics was launched to the tour in the last year. Eight out of the Top 25 players (32%) in the Charles Schwab Cup final standings and 16 out of the Top 50 players put Exotics into play in 2018.
On top of the six victories and 10 runner-up finishes procured by players using Exotics on the 2018 PGA Tour Champions, players using Tour Edge clubs also earned 34 Top 5 finishes and 60 Top 10 finishes in the 27 events played on the PGA Tour Champions in 2018.
The Tour Edge Exotics CBX hybrid ranked as the #1 most played hybrid model at the 2018 Senior PGA Championship and the Charles Schwab Cup Championship with their Exotics CBX hybrid accounting for 16% of the hybrids in play, according to the Darrell Survey.
