Tour Edge Launches New HL3 Drivers At PGA Show

ORLANDO, Florida – At the PGA Merchandise Show today, Tour Edge announced its line of Hot Launch 3 drivers. HL3 is the third release in the award-winning Hot Launch series from Tour Edge founder and master club designer, David Glod.

According to the company, the new high-performance golf clubs will be available nationwide on February 1, 2018.

Tour Edge’s HL3 features a complete lineup from driver to wedge, all designed to fill a niche as “the best pound-for-pound technology and performance” at a mid-tier price point.

TWO HL3 VERSIONS

The HL3 driver comes in two different configurations- a straight version and an offset version. Both drivers feature a forged titanium head and Cup Face technology, which increases the amount of face flexing for increased ball speed.

“When we tested these drivers both internally and with independent robotic testing, we found that the HL3 driver performance is extremely close or better than drivers that price out two to three times more,” said Executive Vice President of Tour Edge John Craig.

“In one case, HL3 was longer than a popular model that has been one of the most played on the professional tours. In that same test, the HL3 driver featured less spin and dispersion than the best-selling driver model at retail this year. Our goal was to utilize top performance technology like Cup Face to create drivers that could hang with the best of the best at a fraction the cost.”

The straight HL3 driver comes in a 9.5 and 10.5 degree lofts, while the HL3 Offset driver will be available in 10.5, 12 and 13.5 degree lofts. The 10.5 degree HL3 Offset will be available in left-handed. The stock shaft for both HL3 drivers is a UST Mamiya designed exclusively for the HL3 line. It is available in Ladies, A-flex, Regular and Stiff shafts ranging from 48 to 60 grams.

Both drivers will be available February 1 at an authorized Tour Edge retailer and will feature a cost of $189.99. To find a Tour Edge retailer, visit touredge.com.
