Tour Edge Golf‘s XCG6 Driver Named “Top Performer” in ClubSmarts Report

Tour Edge Golf today announced that its XCG6 driver has earned a “Top Performer” distinction in the 2013 Edwin Watts Golf “ClubSmarts Report.” The new report, which serves as the centerpiece of Edwin Watts Golf’s Advanced Robot Certified (ARC) Club Matching System, features performance data from scientific robot testing of golf clubs that highlights the playability attributes of new drivers introduced in 2013. In turn, the report serves to objectively “club match and performance fit” golfers with clubs that best perform to their swing characteristics.

The results are based on Edwin Watts Golf’s advanced robot testing that uses an 11-point face system which focuses on six key impact areas: full-face, center impact, off the toe, off the heel, low on the face and high on the face. As a result, the ClubSmarts Report, which is offered free at more than 90 Edwin Watts Golf Shops located in the U.S. and published in the popular Edwin Watts Golf Catalog, provides an easy-to-read Club Matching Matrix that allows golfers of all playing levels to effectively match their swing with the top performing drivers, such as the XCG6 driver.

The XCG6 driver received “top performer” designation in several of the ARC System categories:

  • Most Distance (full face, center impact, off the toe, off the heel, high on face)
  • Highest Ball Speed (full face)
  • Lowest Spin (full face, center impact)
  • Most Accuracy (full face)

“I am excited that the technology we put into the XCG6 driver performed so well in the ARC Club Matching system,” stated David Glod, president and founder of Tour Edge Golf. “With the XCG6 we wanted to give consumers a driver that combines technology and adjustability to maximize distance; it’s great the ARC test results concur.”

The ARC Club Matching System establishes a benchmark for game improvement by enhancing the in-store club fitting experience, as Edwin Watts Golf’s expert clubfitters now have access to unmatched golf club performance data to support fitting sessions via the in-store launch monitors and simulators. This enables golfers to quickly and easily choose clubs that best match their swing and will optimize their performance.

“The ARC System is a game changer for our customers because it adds an extremely easy and golfer-friendly dimension to the club fitting process,” said John Watson, CEO, Edwin Watts Golf. “Using our exclusive robot testing, we can effectively club match and performance fit golfers based on independent scientific analysis of a golf club. This testing enables us to develop the ClubSmarts Report which provides a wealth of data, enabling golfers of all levels to get objectively matched with a club that performs to their swing, while helping them recognize the true benefits of today’s advanced club technology.”

Tour Edge’s new Exotics XCG6 driver features the company’s first ever adjustable hosel.

The XCG6’s Shot Control Technology (SCT) allows for the adjustment of four face-angle/loft settings to optimize launch characteristics for maximum distance and control. With a simple twist of the SCT wrench, golfers can adjust the face angle, loft, and lie of the XCG6 driver. For example, to promote a draw or a hook, select the “C” (closed position) on the SCT hosel or the “U” (upright position) for slightly less draw. To hit a fade or slice, select the “O” or open position and for a mostly straight ball flight, select the “N” or neutral position. With the Exotics XCG6 driver, you simply twist the shaft to dial in the distance.

Loaded with technology, the Exotics XCG6 driver boasts an advanced multilevel face design that maximizes ball speed by incorporating multiple levels of variable face thickness. By thinning and thickening the forged titanium face, the XCG6 enhances feel and rebound across all striking points on the face. What’s more, the driver enhances forgiveness by maximizing heel/toe weighting compliments of four hexahedron weight pads that deliver a higher moment of inertia for greater stability and forgiveness.

The XCG6 driver features Tour Edge’s lifetime warranty and 30-day play guarantee. It is available in the Matrix Ozik HD and Graphite Design Tour AD shafts for $349. For more information, call (800) 515-3343 or visit www.touredge.com.
