TaylorMade’s new Face Slot Technology pays off in a big way.
TaylorMade Golf didn’t become one of the world’s top-selling golf equipment designers and manufacturers by resting on its laurels and living in the past. That’s why the Carlsbad-based company has released a new line of irons, the RSi, incorporating high-tech wizardry and top-notch playability. “The new RSi 1 and RSi 2 models, along with the RSi TP that will be available on Jan. 15th, take face technology to the next level”, according to TaylorMade sales representative Shawn McCaskey.
“The new Face Slot Technology allows golfers to hit it anywhere on the club face and they will get maximum ball speed, launch angles and forgiveness,” McCaskey said. Each model is designed for different players. The RSi 1 for mid-to-higher handicappers, the RSi 2 for mid-to low handicappers, and the TP line for the elite player. The Face Slot Technology found in the club’s heel and toe is indeed the most distinctive feature of all three clubs; it builds on the speed pocket, or slots, that were inserted onto the soles of TaylorMade’s irons two years ago. This improved the ball speed on shots struck low on the face. The face slot provides a similar benefit, increased ball speeds on heel and toe hits. Ball speed, of course, translates into more distance. “No matter what model you play, in my opinion these are the most forgiving, longest and straightest clubs on the market,” McCaskey said.

Global Golf Star Returns to Top 20 in the World Golf Rankings,
Seizes Control of European Ryder Cup Race
Last week, TaylorMade-adidas Golf Tour Staff Professional Sergio Garcia ended a three-year title drought with a convincing 11-stroke victory at the Castello Masters. This week, Garcia didn’t waste any time returning to the winner’s circle, posting a 70-70-67-71-278 total to cinch up his second consecutive win at the Andalucia Masters in Sotogrande, Spain.
Once again, Garcia played the R11 driver, Ghost putter and relied on the precision of his Tour Preferred MB irons.
The 31-year-old Spaniard also drew from the performance of his customary adidas Golf apparel and the all new TOUR360 ATV footwear en route to his 15th International victory. With the win at Club de Golf Valderrama, Garcia moved back into the Top 20 of Official World Golf Rankings and assumed the lead in the European Ryder Cup Race.
LEMONT, Ill. – The score sheet will say England’s Justin Rose breezed to a wire-to-wire victory in the BMW Championship. Breezed? It was more like weathering Hurricane Irene.
Playing in steady rain, Rose nearly squandered a five-stroke lead after eight holes Sunday but held on with an even-par 71 to win the third PGA Tour playoff event, at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club. His 13-under-par 271 total was two shots better than steady Australian John Senden, who had closed within one of the lead after 15 holes.
Rose struggled through much of the back nine — missing four of five fairways and five of seven greens at one point — but sank a 35-foot chip shot from in front of the 17th green for birdie and a two-shot lead. Read More…
