Dustin Johnson Delivers One Millionth White Metal Wood to One Lucky Golfer

August 24, 2011 / by / 0 Comment

Last night, TaylorMade handed off golf’s version of the ‘Golden Ticket’, as TaylorMade Tour Staffer Dustin Johnson dressed up in a FedEx delivery uniform and literally delivered a FedEx shipment containing TaylorMade’s one millionth white metalwood to an unsuspecting golfer in Clifton, NJ, named Patrick Spina. This lucky golfer received the actual R11 driver he custom ordered last week and limited edition (only five in existance) gold-plated R11. As you know, the introduction of the revolutionary white R11 and Burner SuperFast 2.0 had a major impact in the industry and the driver category, in particular, where TaylorMade achieved record marketshare in February 2011. Just seven months after launch, already one million of the new products have been shipped and the company projects to sell more than two million worldwide by the end of the calendar year. To recognize the shipment of one millionth white metalwood, TaylorMade planned to surprise their ‘Golden Ticket’ consumer on Tuesday with the help of our primary international and domestic shipping partner, FedEx. The occasion was especially timely at the start of the 2011 FedExCup playoffs at The Barclay’s. Johnson, in an effort to make the moment as authentic as possible, wore a real FedEx uniform […]

Equipment Insight: Keegan Bradley’s Odyssey White Hot XG Sabertooth Putter

August 15, 2011 / by / 3 Comments

Keegan Bradley won the PGA Championship at the Atlanta Athletic Club wielding an Odyssey White Hot XG Sabertooth Putter (belly model) to grab his first major championship title in his first major championship appearance. Bradley’s putter is 46.75” to the end of the grip. It has three degrees of loft and a lie angle of 67.5 degrees. It weighs 762 grams and has a double-bend ski pole shaft with a Winn Flat Top Mid grip. Bradley is the first player to win a major with a long putter (a belly putter). Bradley began using the putter last year on the Nationwide Tour at the Stadion Classic in Athens, Georgia. He has used it at every event except the Honda Classic this year, where he started the week with a White Ice Dart Mallet Mid with the same specs. According to Odyssey tour rep Johnny Thompson, Bradley nearly changed to a different Odyssey model at the Byron Nelson Championship earlier this season, but decided on Wednesday afternoon to stay with what he calls “The Tooth.” That turned out to be a good move because he won the tournament for his first PGA Tour title. Thompson checks the loft and lie on […]
