“I am very happy to announce that I will be carrying the Tour Edge bag and that I am adding their logo for the 2019 season," said Lehman. “I was very attracted to the fact that this is a U.S. owned and operated company and that they build their clubs in the United States. I am proud to join the Tour Edge team in a bigger way for 2019.”
Lehman served as an Exotics CBX hybrid staff player in 2018. He played Tour Edge Exotics CBX hybrids all year en route to a PGA Tour Champions victory and an 18th place ranking in the Charles Schwab Cup.
This year, Lehman will be wearing a Tour Edge Exotics logo and carrying a Tour Edge bag for the first time and will also expand his club usage to other categories with Tour Edge Exotics clubs.
“I had great success all year long with the Exotics CBX hybrid and fairway woods,” said Lehman. “I’ve tested everything out there and I found Exotics to be the best for my game. I look forward to testing other Exotics clubs as well moving forward.”
Lehman finished 19th in the final Charles Schwab Cup points and money standings in 2018 while playing an 18 degree with a HZRDUS Black 105 shaft and a 15-degree Exotics CBX fairway wood.
Lehman earned nine Top 10’s including a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finish for a grand total of $1,012,437 in prize money earned in 2018. Lehman won the Principal Charity Classic June 10th for his 11th career win on the PGA Tour Champions.
"The name Tom Lehman exudes honor and class,” said Tour Edge President David Glod. “He is an icon of our sport, a future Hall of Famer, a Ryder Cup captain and we are proud to have him feature our company logos and for Tom to carry our new Exotics CBX 119 bag. This is a very important signing for Tour Edge as an American owned and operated brand. We feel there is a lot of symmetry between our company and Tom and we look forward to a great year with him in 2019 on the PGA Tour Champions.”
Lehman will make his season debut January 17th at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai. He finished 9th in the event last year to start off his season. He is the only golfer in history to have been awarded Player of the Year honors on all three of the PGA Tours: the regular PGA TOUR, the Web.com Tour and the PGA Tour Champions.
“We have made our home the PGA Tour Champions and the number one name you could add to your roster as your Champions company ambassador is Tom Lehman,” said Glod. “We set up on the range at every event in 2018 and over 50 different professionals started playing Exotics. 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. Feedback from guys like Tom Lehman and Scott McCarron led to our new Exotics CBX 119 line that we are launching at the PGA Show so this has been a very important direction we are taking as a company.”
Lehman 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 Lehman, providing tips geared toward the amateur golfer.
