TaylorMade Golf are very good at coming up with catchy names for their cheap golf clubs families. The latest is the JetSpeed line of metalwoods, which reach retail outlets. The R1 driver’s crown graphics will strike some golfers as cool.
Taylormade Jetspeed driver
All the JetSpeed woods – driver, fairway woods and hybrids – are aerodynamically designed and have light overall weights, to help the golfer gain more clubhead speed. The JetSpeed driver is TaylorMade’s first to incorporate a speed pocket behind the face, helping the face flex more and rebound with more “oomph” as a boost to ball speed.
According to TaylorMade, the speed pocket promotes less spin, and has a strong effect on ball speed for shots struck below the middle of the face. Given that’s where most shots are struck by recreational golfers, that’s a good thing. The driver includes the company’s Loft-Sleeve technology, and golfers will be able to adjust the stated loft up or down by as much as 1.5 degrees.
TaylorMade R1 driver
The stock shaft in the TaylorMade R1 driver for sale is the Aldila RIP Phenom 55, an ultralight graphite shaft for some extra “oomph” in clubhead speed. While it weighs only 55 grams, its design gives it the feel of a 65-gram shaft. It has a stiff tip and firm grip end, but a softer center for added kick.
As for the adjustability of the TaylorMade R1 driver: Golfers can change the loft angle, the face angle, and use movable weights to affect shot shape. Using what TaylorMade calls “Loft-Sleeve Technology” gives the golfer 12 possible settings for loft, ranging from 8 degrees to 12 degrees. With a standard lie angle, the golfer can choose from seven loft settings within that range.
TaylorMade R11S driver
The company calls the R11S driver “the most adjustable driver” yet on the market. There’s an Adjustable Sole Plate (ASP), which can independently change face angle, or counter a change to face angle caused by use of the FCT. And there is what now seems like an “old-fashioned” technology among modern drivers, those good ol’ moveable weights.
The has the white crown and black clubface that the company has been using a lot lately, a color combo that TM says helps improve alignment while also making the clubhead appear slightly larger than it really is. The clubhead is also slightly more triangular in appearance, a shape that helps boost moment of inertia as well as provide for a deep by more forward center of gravity.
The 29-year-old Scot, who claimed his first victory since landing the 2009 South African Open, carded a 16-under winning total at the idyllic Crans-sur-Sierre for his second career professional victory.
Ramsay, who has finished in the top-six in his last two starts, trusted the r11s driver taylormade, RocketBallz Tour fairway woods, TaylorMade Tour Preferred MC Irons 2014 and Penta TP5 ball to conquer the cold, damp conditions in the Swiss Alps.
The former US Amateur champion performed admirably with his TaylorMade Tour Preferred Forged MC irons by topping the greens in regulation charts for the week on 81.9%.
TaylorMade claims its Tour Preferred MC irons incorporate a compact, shallow cavity that delivers the optimum blend of feel, workability and forgiveness.
Ramsay, who strolled home in the comfort of the adidas Golf adiPURE, also ranked in the top-20 for driving accuracy with his TaylorMade R11S.
The Aberdonian also took advantage of Under Armour’s Storm collection to battle the elements.
“The conditions the first few days made it difficult for everyone but I feel like Under Armour equipped me with all the right tools to keep my performance levels up even in such terrible conditions,” said Ramsay, who relied on the Storm 2.0 Zip Jacket, Storm 2.0 Pant and Evo Coldgear Compression mock.
TaylorMade officials say they utilized several technologies to do that. For starters, they employed the precision weighting port first used with the Tour Preferred MB irons to ensure that the Center of Gravity (CG) in the new Taylormade R11s driver was located in exactly the right position in each club as they also made swingweight uniform.
Then, they added ultra-thin face construction, which increased the COR in the middle and longer R11s to promote faster ball speed and distance. The new sticks also took on the manufacturer’s Inverted Cone technology, which is fashioned to create a bigger sweetspot in an effort to bolster distance on off-center hits.
At the same time, TaylorMade gave the R11s what it describes as progressive shaping, making the longer irons more forgiving and the shorter ones more compact. And officials say they worked extensively with staff professional Nick Faldo to develop top lines that blended into the hosels for what they feel is the best possible look at address.
In addition, they created a “multi-functional sole” for the taylormade r11 irons, with those of the short and mid-irons being moderately thin – and the leading edges moderately sharp – so the R11s could enter and exit turf more quickly and smoothly, and be more playable form a variety of lies. As for the longer irons, the TaylorMade engineers gave them wider soles to pull the CG lower for easier and higher launches as they increased Moment of Inertia (MOI) for enhanced forgiveness and stability.
Finally, the clubmakers incorporated an aluminum badge in the cavity of all R11s to absorb sound and vibration in an effort to improve acoustics and feel at impact.
American Johnson Wagner is the first Tour pro to triumph using the new discount TaylorMade R11s driver after winning the Sony Open just two weeks after putting it in the bag.
Wagner only put the R11s into play last week at the Hyundai Tournament of Champion where he recorded a top 10 finish and told TaylorMade Tour staff that until using the new club he had “never been able to hit his driver so long, high and straight.” The win secured the third PGA Tour title of his career and gave him the early top spot in the FedEx Cup rankings.
Similar to its predecessor, the R11, the new R11S features a contrasting black face which golfers claim improves their alignment and accuracy off the tee and confidence at address – the clubhead appearing large compared to the ball. It’s triangular shape also helps provide a higher launch, more forgiving trajectory. ASP technology – a raised five-point plate which can be rotated and secured – allows the golfer to adjust face angle independent of loft setting which means the face angle can be adjusted independently to the loft and vice versa – neutral, slightly open, open, slightly closed and closed.
Here is what Wagner had in his bag:
DRIVER: TaylorMade R11s (8°)
FAIRWAY WOOD: TaylorMade Burner SuperFast 2.0 (13.5°)
HYBRID: Adams Idea Pro a12 (18°)
IRONS: Titleist ap2 712 irons
WEDGES: Titleist Vokey Spin Milled (48°, 54°, 60°)
PUTTER: Scotty Cameron prototype
BALL: Titleist Pro V1x
The R11S is the follow up to the wildly successful R11. It features a flat-white crown color and black PVD face to improve alignment and accuracy off the tee.
The taylormade r11s driver’s modern-classical clubhead shape is intended to suit the eye of better players, while still providing ample forgiveness and confidence for average players. The head boasts a contemporary, slightly more triangular appearance than traditionally shaped drivers that provides higher MOI and a deeper, farther-forward CG position.
The R11s has a unique feel that struck me right away as different. It’s got a really nice, deep feel at impact. I can best describe it as the feeling of hitting a baseball with a wooden bat. It’s solid, and when you catch it on the screws the ball simply explodes. The sound is quite different than the high pitched ding of many drivers on the market, although for some reason the sound didn’t quite match up with the feel, sounding a tad more high pitched than I would have expected.
For me personally, the R11s was longer than any of the three drivers I had been rotating through my bag at the time. The ability to tinker with face angle, lie angle and weighting in the head is helpful, although be careful that you don’t obsess over it. I found an absolutely measurable difference from one end of the spectrum to the r11 irons, but even as a low single digit handicapper, once I got into the general ballpark of how I wanted my settings, I found that my swing and ball flight day to day were slightly different enough that I’d quickly wonder if the settings needed to be changed.
Instead of instilling confidence and learning to play with the club, I consistently found myself wanting to tinker and play around with it. If there’s a downside to so much adjustability, the endless second guessing is it. My primary gripe with the R11s is in my ability to swing it consistently. I chalk this up to its slightly longer length, which promotes distance but can rob you of the ability to control it. I found that my primary miss was a high, weak push or an uncharacteristic 60-yard slice.
The R11s is so popular on Tour and in the stores because it’s a great stick. The white head is a plus and you’ll have a hard time finding a better stock shaft on the market.
TaylorMade SLDR Driver
taylormade burner 2.0 irons
Taylormade R11S Driver is the modify model of R11 Driver. Taylormade R11S is the most advanced driver till now, the while shape is very nice.
The 460cc driver – available in three lofts, 9-, 10.5- and 12-degrees for right-handers – features a 3-degree Flight Control Technology (FCT) sleeve and annew 5-way adjustable sole plate (ASP) creating a golfer’s preferred set-up as they look down at the club at address. Combined with TaylorMade’s Movable Weight Technology (MWT), the R11S driver can be tuned for upto 80 separate launch settings.
“The R11S is a golfer’s dream come true; it’s the realisation of every ounce of innovation, adjustability, and performance we could package in a bigger, more aerodynamic, white clubhead,” said Sean Toulon, executive vice president. “With the proper fitting, we know golfers of all skill levels will be longer and straighter off the tee.”
”Offering a wide range of loft settings is imperative, because our research indicates that 80 percent of golfers are playing the wrong loft, which costs them distance,” said TaylorMade Chief Technical Officer Benoit Vincent. ”The TaylorMade R1 Driver for sale offers 12 positions to help golfers find the loft that delivers the launch conditions that deliver maximum distance.”
That stat – that 80 percent of golfers don’t play the correct loft – seems incredible, but TaylorMade says that many of us typically choose the wrong loft when we buy a driver off the rack. We usually opt for too little loft because too many of us believe that a lower-lofted driver will provide longer distance, but that typically costs the average player carry and distance by promoting a too-low launch angle.
The R1’s 12 loft settings mean it can be set anywhere from 8 degrees to 12 degrees of loft (seven of the settings are at the standard lie angle, and five at an upright lie angle). The seven face-angle settings include: neutral/square, slightly open, more open, maximum open, slightly closed, more closed and maximum closed. And the two shot-shape weights allow the Center of Gravity to be shifted by five millimeters to promote either a draw or a neutral/straight trajectory.
Usually, we know that a standard round of golf consists of playing eighteen holes, and most golf courses therefore have this number of holes. Some, however, only have nine holes, and the course is played twice per round. Other courses have twenty-seven or thirty-six holes and players choose two groups of nine holes each, providing novelty, and also for maintenance reasons.
These types of courses provide a faster pace of play than a standard course, and get their name from their target patronage of business executives who would play the course on a long lunch or as part of a meeting. They are also popular with young professionals, because during the normal golf season, the course can usually be played in the time between the end of the work day and sundown.
However, with the fast development of society, people become more and moe busy and have less and less time to play a traditional 18-hole golf round. More and more golfers are digging in their heels, refusing to spend half of a precious weekend day away from their families.
It’s a sign that the golf world desperately needs to find another way to reach out to all those men, women and kids out there who would enjoy the game if only they could find the time. Golf is not adjusting to a changing consumer base. So, what if it only took two hours to play a round of golf? Aimed at trying to make golfing easier for all golers.
Interestingly, the time and money issues associated with playing golf are not new. After World War II, Geoffrey S. Cornish, one of our country’s most respected and prolific golf architects, recalls, A lot of people wanted to play golf with a TaylorMade R1 Driver but didn’t have the money so we built more than 50 pitch n’ putt courses all over New England. No one can assure the TaylorMade R11S Fairway Wood in putt would go over well today, but it sure got golf going and into our blood.
In addition, nine is the magic number for just about everyone. For the golf addict looking to add another nine after finishing an 18-hole round, for families with younger golfers, for golfers with physical restrictions and more.
Finally, for children, nine is much more better than 18 holes, because children are not so strong as adults. Parents can also let your children to play nine holes letting them use his old taylormade sldr irons.
Try to arrive at the course with plenty of time before teeing off. About an hour should suffice. Plan to spend 20-30 minutes on the driving range and another 10-20 minutes on the putting and chipping green.
If you’ve taken lessons, jot down a few notes detailing what you’ve learned. For example, your instructor may have emphasized proper alignment, stance width or posture. Focus on these elements with each practice shot.
On the range, you don’t need to practice with every club. Choose a couple of short irons, a mid-iron or two, a Taylormade R11 Rescue Hybrid or TaylorMade SLDR Fairway Wood, and the TaylorMade R11S Driver. Start by hitting several shots with your shortest club (a sand wedge, for example). Then switch to the next longest longer club, and so on until you reach the driver.
Moving from short clubs to long ones will help you establish a smooth tempo so that once you’ve got the driver in hand, you’ll be less likely to overswing. Shorter clubs are also easier to strike well, building confidence from the start.
Make sure not to overdo it on the range. Until you’re playing and practicing regularly, your golf muscles will tire fairly quickly. Hit 20-30 balls and move on to the green.
Begin your putting session from very close range – no more than a couple of feet from the cup. The idea, again, is to ingrain fundamentals and build confidence. Most importantly, try to accelerate the putter through the ball.
After you’ve made 10-15 short ones, move a few feet out and hit another 6-8 putts. Work your way out to about 15 feet, then finish with a few putts from long distance (30-40 feet). By the time you’re done, you should have a good feel for the pace of putts you’ll see on the course.
If the club has a practice green for chipping, spend a few minutes there working on very basic shots. Focus on hitting your chips with a downward strike for crisp contact.
BETHESDA, Md. — Playing in his first tournament since back surgery in late March, Tiger Woods shot a 3-over 74 on Thursday in the first round of the Quicken Loans National at Congressional Country Club.
The 14-time major champion had bogeys on seven of his first 12 holes before closing with birdies on three of his last six holes.
Woods’ round was characterized by several sloppy mistakes around the greens. Yet he drove the ball accurately, hitting nine out of 14 fairways. He also hit 10 of 18 greens with TaylorMade R11S Driver.
“The score is not really indicative of how I played,” he said. “I had four up-and-downs right there on 15 through 18. I had an easy pick on 2, don’t get that up-and-down and a wedge in my hand on 3 and I jerk it in the bunker.”
Greg Chalmers finished with three straight birdies for a 66 and has a one-shot lead over Ricky Barnes and Freddie Jacobson.
Defending champion Bill Haas, Patrick Reed, U.S. Open runner-up Erik Compton and Tyrone Van Aswegen shot 68. Compton birdied his last four holes.
“I didn’t think it was easy at all,” Chalmers said. “I played TaylorMade R1 Driver really well, and I think anybody who plays really well can shoot a low score. You just have to be coming out of the fairway, and I didn’t that the majority of the time today.”
Only 26 players in the 120-man field broke par.
Only once in his career has Woods shot as high as 74 and gone on to win the tournament. It happened in the 2005 Masters, when he was tied for 33rd after the first round after shooting 74.
When it comes to Tiger Woods, we all know that he is the highest-paid golfer in the world all the time. But unfortunately, he has ever been surpassed by another athlete before, whoes name is Mayweather.
Moreover, this time, boxer Floyd Mayweather has supplanted Tiger Woods as the world’s highest-paid athlete again for the second time in three years. Woods is affected after withdrawing from the U.S. Open because of injures on back. This would surely affect his income in some degree. But this does not mean Woods will withdraw from all the tournaments from now on. He is still the hotest golfer star in golf field.
Woods topped the list for 11 consecutive years from 2001-2011 before Mayweather took over the top spot in 2012, only to see Woods return to No. 1 last year. Now Mayweather is once again on top, having banked $105 million in prize money from a pair of fights within the last 10 months.
He fell to sixth overall, with a total of $61.2 million earned – $6.2 million in on-course earnings and $55 million in endorsements. After reclaiming the top spot in the world rankings while winning five times last year, the 38-year-old has been sidelined since March 31 of this year after undergoing surgery to repair a pinched nerve in his back.
You can find the list based on a combination of prize money and endorsements from June 1, 2013 to June 1, 2014. Last year on the magazine. Woods held the top spot with a total of $78.1 million in earnings. Since then he renewed his endorsement contract with TaylorMade SLDR Driver, but saw his video-game partnership with EA Sports come to an end.
Now, let’s talk about something about Mayweather. He is now the athlete ahead of Woods on the latest list include a pair of soccer players and a pair of NBA stars: Cristiano Ronaldo ($80 million), LeBron James ($72.3 million), Lionel Messi ($64.7 million) and Kobe Bryant ($61.5 million).
Additionally, the Open champion Phil Mickelson (No. 8, $53.2 million) is also among the hot list. Other golfers who use TaylorMade SpeedBlade Irons to make Forbes’ list include reigning two-time major winner Rory McIlroy (No. 35, $24.3 million), FedEx Cup champ Henrik Stenson (No. 64, $21.2 million) and current world No. 1 Adam Scott (No. 95, $17.7 million).
All of these golfers are the first-line golf pros in the world, some like to play with TaylorMade R11S Fairway Wood, some prefer others. Thanks to them, golf has been more and more popular, also more and more expensive which make its players famous and rich. Anyway, it is a good way to exercise your body helth and become a star more easily. However, this is not so easy saything than done!
