David Glod - President, Founder and Chief Club Designer
HEADQUARTERED in the suburbs of Chicago, Tour Edge was founded in 1986 by David Glod, a former golf pro at Village Links Golf Club in Glen Ellyn, Illinois.
As a young entrepreneur, David believed there was an opportunity in the golfing industry to provide high quality and technologically advanced golf products that were as cutting edge as they were affordable.
His goal was to change the consumer’s perception of value and quality in golf clubs.
He designed his first club in 1987 and never looked back.
Glod is now considered one of the preeminent master club designers in golf club design and has led Tour Edge to be a Top 10 manufacturer worldwide in every club category.
TOUR EDGE golf clubs have now been in play in every PGA TOUR Major Championship and multiple Ryder Cups. Tour validation for Tour Edge started with the launch of our Exotics line in 2005.
Many of the best players on the PGA TOUR started playing Exotics without being paid to do so, enough so that it led to 10 victories on the big tour.
Our products have been in play for 26 victories on the PGA Tours, including 10 on the PGA TOUR and 15 on the PGA TOUR Champions.
Our legendary #TeamTourEdge tour staff includes Alex Cejka, Ken Duke, Bernhard Langer, Tom Lehman, Scott McCarron, Tim Petrovic, Duffy Waldorf and Mike Weir.
We have now seen over 2,500 clubs in play by over 135 different PGA Tour professionals on the three PGA Tours over the last four seasons.
In that time, we’ve earned 16 wins, 92 Top 5’s and 216 Top 10 finishes.
