Taylormade R11 irons is a nice choice

I’m a shade under a 9 handicap. Good driving sets up my game for good scoring. The resulting cheap Taylormade R11 Irons is a marriage of the Burner and Tour Preferred lines. I’m not a very high-ball hitter and prefer lighter weight shafts, but standard swing weight irons. I can effectively play ‘off-the-rack’ setups out of the box as they’re very close to my actual specs.

I like the progressive variable-thickness design that features thinner faces in the long irons (to increase ball speed) and thicker faces in the short irons to promote control. This is a nice choice for those who realize that shooting in the 70s is a once-a-year—not a once-a-week—occurrence.

I’ve been playing taylormade tour preferred irons 2014 for the better part of the summer with success. I’ve only played forged irons for several years because I love forged feel. I’ve tried some cast clubs and disliked every one. They feel solid and are very accurate. Turf interaction on dry and wet days has been great, and they’re very consistent.  I don’t find them clunky, even coming from playing MCs.

The heads are larger than a typical players club. These are geared for scratch to 20 handicaps, so they will be larger than cheap taylormade rocketbladez irons. The heads are progressive in shape, but that’s not noticeable when playing like Burners. The leading edge is sharper and there’s less camber to appeal to a better player. I don’t mind clubhead size as much as I do offset. The R11 offset is less than I thought.

The presentation I saw stated that on shots hit out of rough, the R11 irons put 1600 more RPM on the ball than taylormade burner 2.0 irons for sale. On course, I can say that this is absolutely true. On shorter irons, a ball hasn’t spun more than a few feet from its pitch mark for me — most stopping a foot away. On longer irons, the spin / trajectory is excellent.

Overall, the clubs just feel very solid. I feel like I can really hammer the ball, but the results will be positive. On poor swings, distance loss is more than acceptable — I still found the green on numerous occasions.

Having The Right Body Language

Watch Tiger Woods play golf and you’ll see a man striding the fairways with purpose, focus and confidence. Watch players at your home course walking the course and you may see tired postures, frustrated expressions and downbeat attitudes.

There are not many sports where one person takes four hours to complete a game played entirely by themselves. What that means for golf is there is a lot of downtime on the course when you are walking and not hitting shots with taylormade burner 2.0 irons. Ensuring you are thinking and feeling the right way during this time can actually help your game.

Justin talks about Tiger Woods philosophy of walking around the course telling himself he is 10ft tall and bulletproof. He recommends trying this on the course and have a “nothing can phase” me mentality and confidence when you play with taylormade sldr irons. Stand tall, be positive and you might just find you score lower.

What’s in a Full Set of Golf Clubs?

Understanding the different golf clubs in a set is essential to learning the game. A golfer can carry up to 14 clubs while playing, each with a unique length, loft and purpose.

Woods are the larger clubs that hit the ball the farthest. Because they are longer and have low loft angles, they are generally harder to hit directly off the ground, so woods are typically hit off a tee. They are usually made of metal, such as titanium or steel. A taylormade r1 driver, or the 1-wood, is the biggest of all woods, and carried by nearly all golfers. Because drivers go so far, it makes them a lot of fun to hit. Conversely, when you mishit it, the mistake will be exaggerated.

Irons are used to hit shorter and more accurate shots. They usually range from a 3-iron, which travels the farthest of the irons, to wedges such as a pitching wedge or sand wedge. Here’s a good rule of thumb for remembering what a particular iron does: The higher the number, the higher the ball will fly and the shorter it will travel. For example, a ball hit with a 3-iron will travel lower and farther than one hit with a 9-iron. The new taylormade sldr irons is a good choice.

Hybrid clubs are exactly what the name suggests, a mix between woods and irons, offering the best of both. Hybrids make it easier to hit the ball off the ground than with a wood or long iron (3 or 4), while providing more distance than a shorter iron delivers. Hybrids have gained mass popularity over the last decade, replacing long taylormade burner 2.0 irons in many golfers’ bags. Some older players have also started replacing their entire sets of irons with hybrids because they are so much easier to hit and offer a bit more distance.

Of course, the club every golfer needs is a putter. Used on the green to get the ball into the hole, the putter may be the most important club in golf. Putters come in many different varieties of head shapes including smaller blade type styles and larger mallet type heads.

Read subtle breaks better like those at Valhalla

When the greens are major championship speeds, the slightest change in slope will cause your putts to break. Many times, these subtle changes are undetected by even the most trained eyes. But what do you do when your eyes aren’t giving you the answer as to which way the putt breaks on a fast green?

Here are some tips to help you control speed and read those subtle breaking putts:

• Master speed control. First and foremost, you must develop an ability to control the speed of your putts if you expect to be able to read greens effectively. Control your speed on the greens by maintaining your rhythm and tempo and using the size of your stroke to adjust for varying distances. It is also important that you hit the ball with your TaylorMade R11 Irons on the sweet spot of the putter to develop a consistent feel.

• Find the straight putt. Every hole location has at least two straight putts: one uphill and one downhill. By finding these putts you can at least estimate which direction the ball will curve. For example, when you find a straight uphill putt, most locations to the right of the uphill putt will result in a right to left breaking putt. Most putts to the left of the straight uphill putt should curve left to right. Instead of trusting your eyes to find the straight putt, use your feet by walking around the hole, paying attention to whether it feels like you’re walking up or downhill.

• Pick a line and trust it. How many times have you gone through the process of reading a green only to feel uncomfortable to the point that you change your line at the last second before making your stroke? Having this feeling is quite normal, but it’s important that you step back and readjust your intended line before hitting the putt with TaylorMade Burner 2.0 Irons. Use a line on the ball to aim at your target for extra reassurance.

Rory McIlroy ball fetches $52K

A golf memorabilia collector paid $52,038 for the ball that Rory McIlroy used in the final round of his Open Championship victory last month.

McIlroy threw the ball into the stands off the 18th green at Hoylake and it was caught by Englishman Lee Horner. Horner consigned the TaylorMade SLDR Irons for sale to golf auctioneer Green Jacket Auctions, with the ball selling in the early morning hours on Sunday.

The auction company’s co-founder, Ryan Carey, said that the price paid for the ball is the second-highest ever paid for a golf ball, narrowly missing what a collector paid in April 2011 for a vintage Bobby Jones autographed ball ($55,865).

“There was a lot of interest in this discount burner 2.0 irons,” Carey said. “We had 22 different bidders from countries across the world, including Ireland, Australia and countries in Asia.”

Carey said the buyer wanted to stay anonymous, but did disclose that it was won by an American.

The ball, which has the word “RORS” printed on it, was confirmed to be McIlroy’s ball by his sponsor Nike.

Carey said not many tournament-winning balls have come to the collector’s marketplace because they are either kept by the golfer or even lost in a bag after a round. He said he hopes that the money generated from the McIlroy ball will encourage golfers to save their balls and for some to eventually be made available to the public.

As for McIlroy, it seems like he’s content with rewarding fans after his wins. After winning the Bridgestone Invitational with taylormade r11 irons earlier this month, McIlroy once again threw his ball into the crowd.

Said Carey: “Maybe this is Rory’s thing. If he wins the PGA on Sunday, some lucky fan might have another $50,000 ball.”

Rory McIlroy shoots 5-under 66 with Taylormade irons

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A rare mistake led to a double-bogey for Rory McIlroy, but it hardly slowed him during the first round of the PGA Championship.

McIlroy admitted he was none too pleased after he snapped his second shot at the par-5 10th hole out of bounds with TaylorMade SpeedBlade Irons, leading to a double-bogey 7 and a temporary state of annoyance.

A three-putt bogey followed at the 11th, but McIlroy settled down and rattled off four straight birdies — along with another at the 18th — to shoot 5-under-par 66 and trail first-round leaders Lee Westwood, Kevin Chappell and Ryan Palmer by a stroke at Valhalla Golf Club.

5“I was very hot,” McIlroy said. “Things like what happened on 10, they happen. You hit bad shots. It sort of knocked me off track a little bit because it’s one of the only bad shots I’ve hit with taylormade burner 2.0 irons in a few weeks. What I was really angry about was you don’t compound that error and make a bogey on the next hole with a three-putt.”

But instead of letting it derail him — as happened several times earlier this year with bad stretches of holes — McIlroy took it as motivation.

“It’s trying to use that fire as a fuel and sort of propel yourself forward,” he said. “It was great. It just sort of shows where my game is mentally right now, that I was able to do that today.”

McIlroy is coming off of victories at the Open Championship and WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, the latter coming on Sunday and moving him to No. 1 in the world ahead of Adam Scott.

He had eight birdies in the opening round Thursday and hit 12 of 14 fairways and 13 of 18 greens. And he felt it could have been better.

“I thought I could have made each of the putts on the last three holes,” he said.

McIlroy said he is driving the ball with SLDR Irons better than he did during his hot stretch in 2012, when he won four times toward the end of the year, including the PGA Championship and the season-ending event in Europe.

He has three worldwide wins this year, but the last two victories have seen him excel off the tee and take advantage of it in the rest of his game.

Tiger Woods not ruled out at Valhalla

Tiger Woods’ agent said Monday that Woods has not been ruled out of the PGA Championship this week at Valhalla despite his withdrawal from the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday with a back injury.

In a text message to ESPN.com, Mark Steinberg said it was too soon to determine whether Woods would play in the year’s final major in Louisville, Kentucky.

“Way too early. He has to rest and get treatment and then assess later,” he wrote. “Pointless to make that decision now without proper time to give him best chance. Nothing further today, maybe [not] even tomorrow.”

The PGA of America said in a tweet later on Monday that Woods’ tournament news conference scheduled for Tuesday morning would not take place.

Earlier Monday, U.S. captain Tom Watson said the injury “doesn’t bode well right now” for Woods’ chances to be selected to the Ryder Cup team.

Woods, who won the PGA Championship in 2000 at Valhalla, flew home to Florida on Sunday for evaluation.

He withdrew from the WGC-Bridgestone after hitting his tee shot on the ninth hole, where he was in visible pain trying to pick up his taylormade burner 2.0 irons australia. Later, at his car in the parking lot at Firestone Country Club, he spoke briefly, saying he “jarred it” when he hopped into a fairway bunker on the second hole after hitting a shot from an awkward stance.

It was Woods’ third tournament since returning from March back surgery.

TaylorMade introduces new RocketBladez irons

It is the performance, not the looks, that motivated TaylorMade president and CEO Mark King to call TaylorMade RocketBladez sale a “once in a lifetime innovation.”

The TaylorMade RocketBladez Irons also featured a slot cut into the sole, but the new model’s Speed Pocket is 3 millimeters longer. It’s also slightly wider and extends back in the heel and toe areas. TaylorMade says this updated design allows the clubface to flex more effectively at impact, broadening the sweetspot. The result? Golf balls hit across a larger portion of the hitting area fly about the same distance for more consistency, according to the company.

Sean O’Hair was the first to test them on the PGA Tour, and he said, “These irons will make me a better player.” It is clear that TaylorMade officials and players have great expectations for the RocketBladez. These irons, even the Tour model, are made of cast stainless steel and not forged steel. TaylorMade calls this “one-piece cast construction.” Executive vice president Sean Toulon said in this case virtually nobody can tell the difference between cast and forged.

The clubface is made of maraging stainless steel and incorporates the company’s newest iteration of Inverted Cone Technology, which is designed to deliver two primary benefits: an increase in the size of the clubface area that delivers high ball speed and an improvement in the control of the angle of the ball as it leaves the clubface, for straighter shots and tighter dispersion.

At last, TaylorMade engineers say they found a way to fine-tune the Center of Gravity in the RocketBladez to a low and “absolutely centered” location on the face by redistributing weight it took from the top of the club, as well as the hosel, to strategic areas within the clubhead.

Talking about some Tips for tall players

I am a golf professional who happens to stand six-feet, five-inches so I can certainly relate to the unique challenges faced by the tall golfer. I think that the most prevalent bad habit of a tall player is to move the body too much. The solution is to set the body in a more solid position at address.

This can be accomplished by bending more from the hips and tilting the spine forward. The tall player should have some knee flex but should not feel like the knees are pushing downward. Imitate the position that you would assume to lift something heavy. The lower body should feel like everything is pushing towards its center and up. This will help you to stay level, which is a much better thought for a tall person then trying to stay down. Keeping the stance on the narrow side will minimize lateral motion and help the tall player stay centered over the ball throughout the swing.

With this new solid base, the tall player’s arms should feel like they are hanging directly from under the shoulders. The chin should be up enough to see over the left shoulder when turning to look to the target.

If you are successful at positioning your body at address, the tall player will feel like he can swing the taylormade r11 irons more freely and aggressively without the body trying to move up and down. During the swing, attempt to simply get your arm swing to match your body turn. It is my experience that if you have your body in the right posture to begin the swing, you’ll only need to concentrate on what the taylormade burner 2.0 irons is doing and not what your body is doing.

Finally, when practicing, concentrate on approaching the ball and getting into the right posture as often as possible. Your practice will pay off, as you’ll feel more comfortable over the ball. The result will be better, more consistent golf shots.

Pitch out of thick rough

Let’s set the scene for those that might have missed it. Tiger Woods, trailing by one at the time, had just hit his TaylorMade Burner 2.0 Irons shot on the par 3 16th into perhaps the worst spot he could. Into the thick rough over the green on the right, a chip that came up short would stay in the rough, a chip hit too hard would fly down the ridge and perhaps into the water. His lie was not good and if he wanted to have any chance to win, he needed to save par – something that seemed unlikely from his predicament.

Well, the skeptics were right – sort of. Tiger did not make par. He took a mighty swing that resulted in the prettiest, softest pitch that just landed on the green and started to roll towards the pin. Incredibly similar to Tiger’s famous Masters chip on the 16th at Augusta National, this chip seemd as if it might stop or just miss right before dropping in for what may have been the loudest birdie in Muirfield Village history.

So how do you hit this shot with your TaylorMade RocketBladez Irons? You’ve probably hit it many times actually, just most likely out of a bunker. Yes, the same technique that you’d use to get out of a bunker, you should use to hit the soft high flop out of thick rough.

There are three main points to remember:

1. Set the ball forward in your stance, open the clubface. Just like a bunker shot, you want to hit slightly behind the ball and use the rough as a springboard to gently pop the ball out.
2. On the backswing, keep a quiet lower body. Most amateurs struggly with this, often straitening up in the back swing and shifting their low point of the swing. If you get too steep, you will slide right under the ball and the ball will not go far enough.
3. Fire through on your swing, maintain your spine angle, and fully rotate your hips. Watch Tiger’s body as he finishes the swing. Notice how his belt buckle finishes to the left of the target line.

The goal here is get the ball on the putting surface, hopefully with a makeable putt. If you can get it close, that’s an added bonus. If you can make it, well, that’s Tiger-esque. But it certainly doesn’t have to mean a big number. Play it like a bunker shot, commit to the swing and watch the ball float softly onto the green.
