Tour Edge Exotics Interview & Pics

Underrated? Cult following?

Maybe both describe Tour Edge.

You always hear they’re long, but they’re also forgiving. The XCG5 woods line is solid and the new iron sets – CB Forged and CU — look good in person. Enjoy.

    Well I play the CB4 and have been since it displaced my CB3, lol. But seriously I’d like to try this 2 wood out. So if anyone at TEE would like to have a GHIN 2.7 handicapper demo and review the club, I’d be more then happy too. I doubt it could de bag my CB4 but I would like to try this new 2 wood as well as the New CB5. The CB4 is one heck of a 3wood! great job guys, Greg with the interview and TEE with making some of the best woods in the industry IMHO.

    Thanks, Tim

    I purchased my first Exotics 3-wood(xcg-5) last spring. I was never able to hit a 3-wood off the fairway consistently. These exotics are by far the very best on the market. I now have a 5-wood and a 7-wood and just purchased another 3-wood 11.5 degrees that I will use as my driver on a lot of tee shots at Colorado Golf Club which measures almost 7,100 yds from the member tees. I carry no hybrids. My 7-wood is my money club for long 200+ par 3s. My handicap fluctuates between a 12 and a 15. These clubs are so easy to hit and control with massive distance.

    anyone who knocks exotics has obviously never hit one …the fairway woods are absolutely amazing…I will never play any other fairway wood…I would put the cb3-cb4 up against any fairway on the market.

    Chris, I would like to know your skill level and experience with these clubs alike, really! Expensive: but for the price (retail, not internet) some of the Exotics 3 woods and hybrids are off the chart long. These clubs are not for the average player. Some of the OEM’s are just starting to catch up, e.g., Taylor Made RBZ. The regular line, Tour Edge, with a caveat also has a couple of wedges and hybrids that are very affordable and play very, very well for average and skilled players alike. Metrybill

Tiger Woods opts for lead tape on his Newport 2 rather than a heavier putter: Here’s why it makes sense

Published

on

After days of speculation about which putter Tiger Woods might end up with an attempt to tame the greens at Royal Portrush, we now officially know he settled on his old faithful GSS Scotty Cameron but with a twist—some added lead tape.

The whole reason the speculation was in high gear early in the week was because of Tiger was spotted with a new custom Scotty that had the Studio Select weights in the sole to increase head weight to help with slow greens, something Tiger has talked about in the past—especially when it comes to the greens at The Open Championship.

We can even look back a few years ago when Tiger finally put a Nike putter in play, the original Method (those were nice putters) and talked about both the increased head weight and the grooves on the face to help get the ball rolling on slower greens.

The decision to stick with the old faithful with added lead tape goes beyond just a comfort level, even if the two putters look the same at address, it’s about feel and MOI around the axis.

Let me explain. Sure the putter heads weight the same, but depending on where the mass is located it will change the MOI. The putter with the Select weights vs. lead tape in the middle will have a higher MOI because there is more weight on the perimeter of the head—it’s like a blade vs. cavity back iron. Sure, two 7-irons can weigh the same but the performance will vary significantly.

For a player with such deft feel like Tiger Woods, any change like that can could cause doubt. Tweaking an already great putting stroke and on the eve of the last major of the year is not really something you want to do, which is why it isn’t surprising he stuck with his legendary Newport 2.

Lead tape in the middle allows Tiger to increase the head weight with very little change to the natural rate of rotation for hit putter and hopefully manage the slower Portrush greens better.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Your optimal wedge set-up?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from ClevelandKyle who brings up the subject of wedge set-ups. In the thread, our members discuss what wedges they like to carry as well as answering ClevelandKyle’s question: “If you had to carry two wedges for the rest of your life, what would they be (degree, make, model) and why?”

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • SEP1006: “PW / GW – 0311P PXG GEN 2, same as irons. 54/12 and 58/06 – Ping Glide Stealth 2.0: best wedges I’ve ever played by far, very versatile.”
  • cardoustie: “Like the OP, I keep going back to old school Vokey sm2’s .. 50/54/60. TVD m grinds. No wedge spins it as well or feels as good. I am ordering a Glide 3.0 eye 2 58 though.”
  • manoagolfer: “Vokey 48, 54, 58 and 62. Just added the 62 for the short stuff around the greens and steep faced bunkers.”
  • BCULAW: “RTX4 Raw 46 mid, 50 mid, 56 full, 60 low. After playing Vokeys almost exclusively for the last ten years or so, these Clevelands have been a real eye-opener. Spin is greatly increased, and the grind on the 60 is stellar. Highly recommended.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “1 or 2-iron recommendations?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Afor1991 who is on the hunt for a 1 or 2-iron after having no luck with hybrids. With a swing speed in the low 100s, Afor1991 is confident he has the speed and consistency to make a 1 or 2-iron work for him, and our members have been giving him their best suggestions in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • boggyman: “1st generation TM UDI 16* hard to beat with right shaft for a 1-iron, IF you could find one. Used mine in a set of OL Cobras for a while. Need to re-shaft it now though.”
  • Pepperturbo: “I have been effectively using T-MB 17* 2 iron since it was introduced. Now and again put my old Mizuno Pro 16* 1 iron in the bag to remind me those clubs require a good swing. Good luck with your choice.”
  • joelsim: “It depends on how much you value consistency over distance. And of course what your handicap is. I don’t have an official handicap but am regularly scoring in the 70s at my home club, at most 85 if I have a really bad day. And I tried a UDI #2 a couple of weeks ago and sold it a day later. Will stick to my G400 #4 Iron at power spec 19*. Gives me 195y carry consistently with run out according to ground hardness. So far it beats G and G400 Crossovers, Cobra King Utility and TM UDI #2 hands down.”
  • wam78: “Currently playing Mizuno mp h5 2 iron and I absolutely love it! Feels good, easy to hit high and low and can be found for a good price.”
