TaylorMade Rocketbladez experience: Videos on Page 8
So we were waiting for the live thread to go up but I guess its up to me for now. The day started by landing in Ft Meyers and then having a driver bring us to Naples. Once we got to our room we had some nice gear from Taylormade and Adidas waiting for us.
Afterwards I went to the front desk and asked where the golf shop was and they pointed me in the right direction. Standing right behind me, Brandt Snedeker, who promptly said well I’m following you. It was about a 5 minute walk to the golf shop so I got to talk to the 10 million dollar man for a awhile on the walk over.

We all got custom fit for our Rocketbladez irons at the brand new Taylormade Performance Lab and then hit their demo’s out on the range in front of the trackman (I’ll tell you more about them after we get our custom sets tomorrow, we play with them Thursday). I cannot say enough about Tom, my fitter, and his British accent. Think Justin Rose/Ian Poulter, because thats who fit me. He was extremely knowledgeable, explained everything I could possibly ask, and did it all with a huge smile on his face.
Dave (deck) and I (I’m also Dave) saw Jason Dufner on our way back and got our picture taken with him. We walked back to the resort with him and yes, he had his chew in.
We headed to the pairing party afterwards and got to meet with Ricky Fowler for a few minutes before staring wide eyed at every other pro there. After the pairing party we sat and talked with all the Taylormade guys including Executive VP Sean Toulon. He was great, answering question after question and being totally honest with us. He gave us the scoop on some new stuff for next year as well as some other secret info. We asked him every question we could think of and he loved it all. On top of that he shared french fries with me, great guy right? We had great conversations with all the Taylormade guys and all the other guys from GolfWRX Zak, Dave, Todd, Kadin, and Wally.
Thats all the info I can post right now as we have breakfast with everyone at 7:30am and then off to the Pro-Am.
PS ask Deck what happened to his phone
