New Season Brings New Tour Staff, Equipment From TaylorMade

TaylorMade on Tour

Welcome to this month’s TaylorMade on Tour. In this article, we look at the start of the 2017 PGA Tour season and introduce new Tour staff additions. We also give a glimpse at new equipment TaylorMade is introducing.

Tour Staff Performance

Tour Staff

As the calendar turns over to a new year, PGA Tour players return from break to begin a new season. The first two tournaments of new PGA season are in Hawaii. The SBS Tournament of Champions pits winners from the previous season against each other at The Plantation Course at the Kapalua Resort. Pat Perez joins flagship TaylorMade staffers Dustin Johnson and Jason Day at the top of the leaderboard as the best finishers using TaylorMade clubs.

The Tour next heads to Honolulu for The Sony Open at Waialae Country Club. The first full-field event of the New Year saw a strong performance from staffer Justin Rose, who finished second. Gary Woodland and Jim Herman, who use TaylorMade clubs also finished in the Top 10.

TaylorMade Staff Additions

TaylorMade announced the signing of 6 new Tour players to use their metalwoods for the 2017 season. Smylie Kaufman, Paul Casey, Seung-Yul Noh, Nick Watney, Kyle Stanley, and Jon Curran are the players. Casey, Watney, and Stanley are former Nike staffers. Looking for new club options is only natural with Nike’s exit from the equipment industry. It should be noted that Kaufman and Curran are Cleveland/Srixon staffers primarily. They play their irons, wedges, and golf balls. Metalwoods are the only clubs they play from TaylorMade.

New TaylorMade Equipment

Tour Proto irons

Speaking of equipment, the 2017 M Family metalwoods and irons will hit shelves on January 27th. The metalwoods are available for pre-sale now. A new player’s iron called the “Tour Proto” is joining the M1 and M2 irons in 2017. Details are still unknown about them, aside from the feedback from Tour players. Justin Rose had this to say about them:

“They are just awesome. Feel good. Look good. The dispersion pattern I see on them is extremely tight throughout the bag. Best irons I’ve had in years.”

TP5/TP5x Golf balls

Also coming in the spring are the TP5 and TP5x golf balls. As the name suggests, the golf balls will have 5 layers to optimize performance. The 2 outer layers enhance spin on full wedge shots and around the green. The inner 3 layers aid in ball speed and distance off the tee and with irons.

 

Well, that’s all for this month. Stay tuned each month to read about the latest and greatest from TaylorMade on Tour.
