(Ocean Isle, NC) – Evolve Golf – maker of the No. 1 performance golf tee on Tour – confirms the winner of the 138th Open Championship relied on its patented Epoch tee.
In a dramatic four-hole playoff victory, the winner’s steady performance off the tee proved to be the difference. The 36-year old American set up aggressive approach shots that lead to a six stroke victory.
Since its 2004 debut, the Epoch has been part of 115 major Tour wins, including 40 PGA Tour victories, and is the only performance tee with radius posts that span the width of a golf ball dimple. This unique feature creates the lowest coefficient of friction of any tee, eliminating deflection at impact and increasing ball speed and control. It has been scientifically proven via a series of rigorous independent robotic tests combined with extensive player testing to provide improvements of up to 12 yards distance and nine yards accuracy.
“Turnberry, like all Open Championship venues, is known for penalizing players unable to properly position the ball off the tee,” says Evolve Golf Founder and CEO, BJ Maloy. “This year proved no different as the eventual winner used the Epoch to gain extra distance and accuracy en route to his first Major.”
Not just built for performance, the Epoch – like all Evolve Golf products – is completely sustainable. Made entirely from recycled and renewable materials, the mower-friendly design is ten times more durable than its wooden counterparts.
