Manage Yardages with Taylormade RBZ clubs

TaylorMade Golf has long been noted for being aggressive and innovative in their marketing efforts. And their newest Taylormade RBZ has certainly drawn notice as being.

Technology and design have merged to create a Taylormade RBZ irons that delivers more swing speed than ever before – say our friends at TaylorMade Golf. More distance in every club, from the 3-iron to the lob wedge, these new irons have earned their name. Engineered with metalwood construction and fast-flexing faces. Attack from anywhere with maximum ball speed and pinpoint accuracy. Get distance so extreme it’s laughable.

The Loft Sleeve Technology in the new Taylormade RBZ Stage 2 driver. The sleeve has been updated to adjust to 12 positions within the window of 1.5 degrees of loft adjustment. The driver is available in either a 9.5, 10.5 or 13 degree model, and with the Loft Sleeve Technology, offers up to 60 yards of side to side adjustability.

TaylorMade have moved the CG further forward and lower than the previous Taylormade RBZ driver. They found that a lower, further forward CG promotes a faster ball speed along with a higher launch, perfect for more distance. The crown thickness now varies from 0.6mm to 0.4mm. This process saved three grams of weight, making the clubhead even faster through impact.

Though not as adjustable as TaylorMade R1 driver, the RBZ Stage 2 has been updated to offer 12 different lofts, lie angles and face angles within the window of a 1.5-degree loft adjustment. It also includes a Thick-thin Crown design in which various portions of the crown range from 0.6 to 0.4 millimeter thick, saving three grams of weight as compared to the crowns of the 2012 R11S and RocketBallz Tour drivers.

All together the RBZ Stage 2 weighes under 300g. Combine that a slightly higher swing weight, and the design of the club, and the RBZ Stage 2 works to create a moderate draw bias.

Bernhard Langer gets 5th win of year

ENDICOTT, N.Y. — Bernhard Langer rallied to win the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open on Sunday for his fifth Champions Tour victory of the year, while Kevin Sutherland followed his tour-record 59 with a 74 to drop into a tie for seventh.

Taking the new discount TaylorMade SLDR Irons, the 56-year-old Langer played all 54 holes without a bogey, closing with a 6-under 66 for a one-stroke victory over Woody Austin and Mark O’Meara. Langer finished at 16-under 200 at En-Joie for his 23rd career victory on the 50-and-over tour.

“It doesn’t happen very often you go through a tournament without a bogey,” Langer said.

Sutherland, the second-round leader, had five bogeys — four on the first 10 holes with TaylorMade SLDR Driver — and three birdies in the final round. Playing his third Champions Tour event since turning 50 in June, he finished at 12 under.

Sutherland said he was pressing too much early.

“So, I made some dumb bogeys,” Sutherland said. “Just got myself behind early. I was surprised I didn’t play better today. A lot of energy was expended (Saturday) and I think I had a hard time just getting into the round.”

Langer said he really wasn’t watching the leaderboard.

“I knew I was close,” Langer said. “I just tried to keep my head down and make quality shots. When I looked at 16, I saw I was one up on someone who had already finished the round with TaylorMade SLDR White and figured I would be OK if I just parred out.”

That he did, and won for the first time with his daughter, Christina, serving as his caddie.

“I was more nervous for her than for me,” Langer said. “We hadn’t won a tournament with her caddying, though I’ve won a couple with my son. It’s always special when your kids are caddying.”

Differences of TaylorMade SLDR White Driver and SLDR Driver

Once you become interested in the game of golf, the likelihood is that you wouldn’t normally only want find out more about it but you would also like to learn how to get involved in it. This is true for anyone will be actually interested any kind of sport, and that is certainly true for the sport of golf. For any golfer to nurture his game, he needs to start with fundamentals of the game as his makeup foundation.

As TaylorMade’s advertising describes, you just had to modify the head of one of your clubs and only move the weights around, you possess a custom drive, instead of messing along with your stance plus your swing over compensating your aim. A person able to regulate the lie and the loft in the Taylormade sldr driver head – all these variables as a whole give you 24 different set up options your driver.

TaylorMade SLDR Driver has already made its way into the bags of some of the best players in the world, with demand for its breakthrough performance building each and every week. Amateurs alike have raved about the TaylorMade SLDR’s distance and consistency at a handful of select fitting experiences. This driver is sure to be a game-changer, offering maximum distance thanks to optimized weight and shot shaping adjustability.

The TaylorMade SLDR White Driver is identical to the original dark-headed edition in every way but color – meaning it also includes a 20-gram weight that slides along a track on the front of the sole to let golfers to dial in their preferred trajectory by placing the weight at any one of 21 points along the track. The SLDR allows for six millimeters of movement – that’s 50 percent more than on the R1 driver – promoting a shot-dispersion range of up to 30 yards.

It also includes the low and forward Center of Gravity that promotes low spin and faster ball speeds, as well as TaylorMade’s Loft-sleeve Technology, which permits the loft to be easily adjusted. Golfers can choose from 12 positions within a range of plus-or-minus 1.5 degrees of loft change.

Overall, you can buy golf clubs online that carry out the same job as what some branded gold equipment can enjoy. Buying less value product does not low quality; it just means low prices product that performs equally efficiently. It is just a matter of thinking sensible.

Easy Ways to Hit a High Golf Shot

There are plenty of occasions when you need extra height on a golf shot. Hitting over a tree, for example, or trying to stop an approach shot on a small portion of green. If you naturally hit the ball low relative to other golfers, launching one sky-high can prove pretty difficult. Here are three easy ways to get the ball up in the air when you absolutely must:

1. Play it forward, open the clubface: To maximize height, you must get the most from the club’s loft. The farther back in your stance you position the ball, the more you de-loft the discount TaylorMade SLDR Irons. Therefore, playing the ball closer to your left foot adds loft, as does opening the clubface by aiming it slightly right of target. Remember to align your feet a little left and count on the ball fading just a touch.

2. Take less club and swing harder:
A 9-iron has more loft than an 8-iron, and so forth. The harder you swing, the more backspin you create, and backspin sends the ball higher into the air. Knowing these things, it makes sense that taking less club than you normally would for a shot, then swinging with a little extra “oomph,” will deliver the needed result. Just make sure you’ve got TaylorMade SLDR Driver to carry any hazard in your way.

3. Stand closer and finish high: Golfers with upright swings typically hit the ball higher than do those with flat swings. You don’t need to completely alter your technique to swing on a more vertical plane – just stand an inch or so closer to the ball, and the rest will take care of itself. Also, picture yourself with hands high over head at the finish, then swing to this position. That will ensure an upright arc coming into and through the shot.

Which one do you prefer, TaylorMade R1 or R1 Black driver?

With just one simple 12-position loft sleeve, the TaylorMade R1 is a driver for everyone. For most golfers, the phrase one-size-fits-all has only been a facet to consider when purchasing a cap.

From a recent survey conducted by TaylorMade, results showed 80% of golfers are currently playing the wrong loft to match their game. With the Taylormade R1 driver, there are no such problems. Take out the wrench and trial out different lofts from 8- to 12-degree including two upright positions before dialling into your desired launch angle. An easy-to-use, small dial on the hosel allows you to change the loft in half-degree increments, which was also quite good fun to play around with.

The new loft sleeve was designed in conjunction with the R1’s revamped adjustable sole plate with seven different settings that can change the face angle as much as 3-degree open or closed in 1-degree increments – forming yet another upgrade on its predecessor that offered just five settings in 1.5-degree increments. During my testing, I favoured neutral.

Similar in its technology to the white version, launched earlier this year to wide acclaim, the Taylormade R1 Black driver, claims TaylorMade, features the greatest range of adjustability of any driver it has produced. R1 offers golfers 12 loft settings and seven face-angle positions. It also has two moveable weights to assist shot shaping. All this allows it to be tuned upto 168 different ways to specifically fit a player’s swing and optimise distance and accuracy.

The R1 Black gives players who prefer that colour access to our industry leading technology. “For three years we have only made white drivers but we’ve have heard from a number of golfers who just prefer the look of black,” said TaylorMade’s President and CEO, Mark King.

Overall, Tour players now have two colour options. Some will opt for R1 Black; others will stay with the white version taking advantage of the white/black contrast and alignment benefits.

The arrival of a new TaylorMade SLDR irons

TaylorMade announced their upcoming release TaylorMade SLDR irons. This iron appeals to a wide spectrum of golfers, from touring pros to average amateurs.

Golfers want to hit their irons far, which has put us on a path to engineer iron sets that have driver-like face speed. To find that speed, we created ultra-thin faces, introduced Inverted Cone technology and now an enhanced Speed Pocket with ThruSlot technology. The Speed Pocket, which is a slot in the sole intended to generate more face flex, is built into the 3-, 4-, 5-, 6- and 7-irons. The 8- and 9-irons plus all the wedges have a solid sole without the Speed Pocket.

The SLDR looks like a player’s iron – not only is there little offset, the topline and sole are thin in the fashion appreciated by many skilled players. Unlike TaylorMade SpeedBlade irons, which are long with a visible amount of offset, the SLDR has a very small amount of offset.

In an effort to make the irons more appealing to players on TOUR, TaylorMade designers gave SLDR a classic shape with a thinner topline and sole than Speed Blade. According to TaylorMade, the overall look of the head “add to the iron’s overall beauty and promote keen response and playability.”

To help with sound and feel, the cut-thru slot is filled with an advanced vibration-dampening polymer; a shock-absorbing badge was also positioned in the back cavity to improve feel.

PGA Tour professional to play RocketBladez irons

TaylorMade took a deep breath during the PGA Tour’s off week, and kicked off BMW Championship Week on Monday night with an event to take the wraps off its latest creation – Taylormade SpeedBlade irons.

The SpeedBlades continue the TaylorMade trend of cutting Speed Pockets into their clubheads, as found in such clubs as the Taylormade RocketBladez irons and RocketBallz woods. The Speed Pocket is a deep slot that runs from heel to toe on the sole just behind the clubface that allows the face to flex and rebound faster.

The secret of the RocketBladez’ success is their Speed Pocket, a narrow slot cut in the sole of the 3-iron through 7-iron that permits the face to flex farther and more easily upon impact, particularly when a golfer hits the ball low on the face. The improved flex, says TaylorMade, promotes increased springiness up to the USGA limit for high ball speed. In fact, TaylorMade says, these irons are as hot as many drivers, and could help most golfers add two to five yards per shot.

Higher-lofted clubs like the sand wedge and lob wedge don’t include the Speed Pocket, but have redesigned cavities to improve their feel, and feature TaylorMade’s ATV (All-Terrain Versatility) sole for improved workability around the greens. In addition, these clubs come equipped with heavier steel shafts to promote better rhythm and control in shorter swings.

That, TaylorMade says, increases ball speed and elevates the launch angle to boost distance, and provides more control because shots land on a steep angle. In addition, TaylorMade lowered the SpeedBlade’s center of gravity to further increase the launch angle and to put more power behind shots hit low on the clubface – which the company says happens almost three-quarters of the time.

TaylorMade SLDR White Driver is in the J.B. Holmes’ bag

J.B. Holmes found his way back to the PGA Tour winner’s circle more than two years after going through brain surgery. TaylorMade are now offering their popular, “loft-up” TaylorMade SLDR White Driver.

The SLDR White will be exactly the same as the standard Taylormade SLDR driver in terms of specs, size and weight, with the addition of a white crown colour. TaylorMade want to offer the same low-forward centre of gravity, advanced adjustability and low-spinning performance of the SLDR driver in a colour that may be preferred by some golfers.

Many may wonder why TaylorMade are launching a new driver that is identical to a previous driver with a new crown colour, however this is not the first time they have taken this approach. Having launched the TaylorMade R11 Driver, taylormade r11s driver and R1 drivers in white, they then offered a black version of the TaylorMade R1 Driver designed for players who preferred the darker, more traditional look at address.

The white crown with black button-back delivers a remarkable appearance at address. Many golfers fell in love with white when it came out in 2011, and now we are delivering a limited edition white SLDR with low and forward CG for more distance when you loft up.

Full Swing Golf – The Full Golf Experience

Golfers will go to great lengths to enjoy the game with TaylorMade Tour Preferred MB Irons 2014.  Some call in sick to work. Others may use a lunch break to sneak a range session in.  But, if you’re affluent enough, you have a full size simulator built in your house that offers a wide range of the world’s most desirable courses.

In that regard, any external work done to prepare the space is not included in the price of the simulator. The software that powers Full Swing runs on a standard PC and a standard projector, so the upside here is that other audio/video sources can be routed into the system for a complete home theater/entertainment experience.

The technical aspects of the system are impressive. Each Full Swing installation includes a series of infrared sensors, lights and a special camera that focus solely on the ball. The result is a lifelike experience, accurate ball flight and tracking. These simulators have come a long way and outside of the home they are very capable fitting and training machines. The pros at the Haney Ranch mentioned that at times they will perform a fitting or bring a lesson into the Full Swing bay if weather or activities dictate.

I was also told that the need for routine maintenance on the system and the components is minimal. The screen balls are hit into is very durable, lasting years, and the need to replace the hitting taylormade burner 2.0 irons is dictated only by the user’s preference for a fresh hitting surface.  Sensors and light bulbs are also long-lasting items, so another positive aspect to the Full Swing setup is durability.

Stacy Lewis Retains LPGA Classic Lead

World No 3 Stacy Lewis will take a one-shot lead into the last day of the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic in Daly City after a third-round 68 moved her to 10-under-par for the tournament.

Seventeen-year-old Lydia Ko is in second place at nine under after also shooting a 68 with TaylorMade SpeedBlade Irons, with Jenny Shin leading the chasing pack a further three shots back.

Lewis, who led the tournament after 36 holes, burst into life on the back nine after a previously steady round of pars with birdies at the 12th, 15th, 16th and 17th holes.

The 29-year-old partially credited her display to the fact that she has been paired with Ko through all three rounds.

“We both play fast and we got into a good rhythm,” said Lewis, who is searching for her first tournament victory since winning the British Open in August 2013.

“It’s nice to play with someone who is playing TaylorMade RocketBladez Irons well. I think it made both of us elevate our game.”

Nevertheless, Lewis said there was still plenty of room for improvement in her game.

“This is probably the worst I’ve hit the ball all week,” she said.

“This course is so hard you can make a bogey really quickly. I was putting well so when I hit a couple of good putts for par, I got some momentum going.”
