The PGA Tour Champions is always ripe for interesting equipment stories – with some of the senior players using old equipment or trying different clubs to boost their game, both relatable moves to the average golfer.

At the Insperity Invitational, John Daly provided an equipment first for Tour Edge.

Tour Edge has made a big play on the PGA Tour Champions the past couple of years, and it almost walked away with potentially the company’s biggest win ever. Although John Daly came up a little bit short (literally, as his ball found the water at the last), he had one of his best performances in recent years, finishing T-2 at the Insperity Invitational with a bunch of new Tour Edge equipment in the bag for the first time.

The two-time Major champion had the company’s C721 driver (9.5 degrees of loft with a Project X HZRDUS Smoke Black 60X shaft) as well as a EXS Pro 13.5-degree fairway wood with the same shaft. The big story, however, was his irons.

Daly played Tour Edge’s C721 irons – a players-distance club – to become the first golfer to use the model in competition on tour. Daly had the 5- through 9-irons equipped with True Temper’s X100 shafts.
