Team Daly captures PNC Championship, big John plays bag full of Tour Edge Exotics

Two teams in top 5 playing Tour Edge clubs as Team Lehman finishes T5

John Daly and his son, John Daly II, shot a tournament record 27-under par to win the 2021 PNC Championship Sunday. Team Daly shot a final-round 57 at the annual family-scramble tournament at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando, Fla.

The Dalys edged out Tiger Woods and his son, Charlie, by two strokes after surviving 11 straight birdies from Team Woods, thanks in part to the play of the larger of the John Daly’s.


Daly played a full bag of 13 Exotics clubs at the event. He first started playing Tour Edge clubs at the Insperity Invitational on the PGA TOUR Champions in 2021.

He put the new Exotics C721 driver, an EXS Pro fairway metal and a set of Exotics C721 irons in play for the first time that week and ended up finishing runner-up at the event.

He showed up at the Regions Tradition the following week and declared, “I might as well as be playing all Tour Edge clubs.”

True to his word, Daly has had 13 Exotics in the bag ever since.

Here is a look at the clubs Daly was playing en route to the PNC Championship win, per GolfWRX:

Driver: Exotics C721 (9.5 degrees @7.5)
3-wood:  Exotics EXS Pro (13.5 degrees)
Hybrids:  Exotics EXS Pro (16, 20 degrees)
Utility Iron: Exotics EXS 220 Ti-Utility (3)
Irons: Exotics EXS Blade (5-9)
Wedges:  Exotics EXS Blade (50, 54, 60)

Big John noted that he made seven birdies on his own ball Sunday after his putting woes on Saturday were called out after the round by his son, the University of Arkansas freshman.

Team Daly was playing for the sixth time in the PNC Championship and improved on their T8 finish from last year. The 18-year-old has been playing in this event since he was 12.

“I've always told the media for years the greatest days of my life were seeing my kids born,” said Daly. “You can't top that. To be here and win a big tournament like this with my son, nothing can beat it.”

Tour Edge staff player Tom Lehman and his son Sean also finished in the Top 5 of the PNC Championship this weekend after a 21-under-par performance.

The win is the 15th win on the PGA Tours for a player with Tour Edge in the bag since 2018.

Tour Edge products have now been in play for 25 victories on the PGA Tours, including 10 wins on the “big” PGA TOUR.
