TaylorMade on Tour: New Faces in the TaylorMade Family  

TaylorMade on Tour

The new PGA Tour season has begun! A fresh start is what many tour players are looking for, beginning with new equipment. TaylorMade is finding their way into the bags of some fresh faces on Tour and potentially into those of Tour veterans. Jon Rahm and Beau Hossler are two notable PGA Tour rookies that have signed with TaylorMade as they begin their careers. Rory McIlroy and Hideki Matsuyama are Tour veterans who are primarily known for their sponsorship deals with other companies. They have put TaylorMade clubs in their bags to begin the season. Time will tell if those clubs remain there. Let’s take a look at what these guys are playing.

Jon Rahm

According to GolfWRX.com

  • Driver: TaylorMade M2 (10.5 degrees)
    Shaft: Aldila Tour Green 75TX
  • 3 Wood: TaylorMade M2 (15 degrees)
    Shaft: Aldila Tour Green 75TX
  • 5 Wood: TaylorMade M1 (19 degrees)
    Shaft: Graphite Design Tour AD-DI 8X
  • Irons: TaylorMade RSi UDI, TaylorMade Tour Preferred MB (4-PW)
    Shaft: True Temper Project X 6.5X
  • Wedges: TaylorMade Tour Preferred EF (52-9 Tour Grind, 56-15 Tour Grind, 60-10 Tour Grind)
    Shaft: True Temper Project X 6.5X

Beau Hossler

Beau became famous when he qualified for the 2012 U.S. Open as a 17-year-old amateur. Not only did he qualify, he finished tied for 29th place! It hasn’t been announced exactly what clubs Beau will play once he makes his professional debut, however, it will certainly be with TaylorMade.

Rory McIlroy

Rory has been known for his equipment deal with Nike Golf. With Nike’s departure from the equipment world, Rory has had the freedom to go looking elsewhere for his tools of the trade. At the WGC-HSBC Champions tournament in China, Rory was seen with new woods in his bag. Namely, the TaylorMade M2 driver and M2 fairway wood. A T4 finish and the fifth longest drive of the tournament might convince the World #2 (as of this post) to permanently “game” the #UnMetalwoods.

Hideki Matsuyama

Traditionally a Srixon iron player, Hideki tried out a TaylorMade M2 Tour long iron on his way to victory at the 2016 WGC-HSBC Champions tournament. This game improvement iron creates a higher launch and more forgiveness than the traditional driving iron. Similar to Rory, it is unclear if he will continue to use TaylorMade clubs moving forward. This might simply have been due to the course and conditions he was facing in the tournament.
