January 27, 2012

TaylorMadeThe new TaylorMade RocketBallz fairway woods have made their debut on the European Tour at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, going straight to the No. 1 fairway model with 24 put in play.

TaylorMade staff professionals including Darren Clarke, Sergio Garcia (pictured right), Martin Kaymer, Simon Khan and Richie Ramsay are using the RBZ Tour fairway wood this week and some players have seen yardage gains of up to 24 yards. Newly signed TaylorMade staff player Fredrick Andersson, tested the RBZ fairway at the beginning of this week and saw an average increase carry of 15 yards with his 3 and 5 wood, while Peter Hedblom gained an increased distance of 20 yards.

The RocketBallz fairway woods incorporate improved sole geometry and a “Speed Pocket” to improve overall head and face flexibility, increased face size, low CG location, advanced playability features and a lightweight shaft and grip. The combination of these elements promotes a remarkable increase in distance – better players can gain up to 17 yards of total distance, compared to the Burner Superfast 2.0 Fairway in robot testing at 150 mph ball speed.
