I have made some improvements in my game in 10 years, going from a 33 to a 15; however, I cannot take advantage of new technology playing a mixed iron set from the 70's and 80's.  A custom fitting would be nice even if it means garaging my TM Burner 420.  A Pro-AM? Give me the opportunity to be nervous over a shot!  I promise not to make the Pro play through a 6 hour round even though I know how much they like those. :rofl: TaylorMade / Golf WRX hook me up...please?

I have been a titleist loyalist, particularly irons, for 10 years or so.  Two years ago I picked up a set of Taylormade MC's in a trade and gave them a shot.  I haven't looked back and I and really looking forward to trying the rocketbladez tour irons.  This prize/package might be the coolest thing I have ever seen on here and I would love to get fitted and meet the shark!

Would i love to win this opportunity of a lifetime. Money is tight right now for my wife and i so i am unable to go get fitted for clubs. Im a 5 handicap and i know i can take my game to the next level if my clubs were perfectly matched for my swing. Next year my goal is to play in as many local tournaments as possible if the funds are their and acheive my goal in winning one. My wife supports me (AREN'T I LUCKY :) ) and wants me to achieve my goal. Fingers are crossed....

Currently getting ready to pack-up the clubs for the long winter months in MN....

I would really love to (1) Get out of here for a while and (2) test some cool gear (3) meet some cool folks in the process

If for no other reason, to play some golf without shoveling a path to my ball in December.

Thanks for the chance!

Awesome giveaway! Thanks GolfWRX and Taylormade!

I would be a great candidate for this giveaway because I am just a regular guy from Kentucky that loves Taylormade and loves to play golf. I have never participated in a Pro Am and this would be the opportunity of a lifetime. I also have never been fitted for clubs and think this would be the most beneficial to my golf game. I can not put into words how excited I'd be to have a set of Rocketbladez.

Thanks,
Jason Chandler

Great contest!!

My ball striking has really improved this past summer and my handicap has dropped from 19 to 10.  I'm hoping a proper fitting will get me into the single digits.


Thanks TM.

Only GolfWRX and Taylormade could combine to have a contest that is so over the top!  Any ONE of the things offered in this contest would be worthy of a top of the line giveaway, but the combination of new equipment, the experience of staying at a fantastic resort, and the opportunity to play in actual pro-am is a once in a lifetime experience.  This would be the ultimate golf experience for me, and I would love the chance to enjoy this experience.

I am a college golfer trying to figure out the difference between me and the guys on TV. A pro-am might be exactly what is needed for me to understand what they have that escapes me... I play titleist clubs right now; can't afford to make any changes, even if it would improve my game. Worst of all, I live in Michigan. There is snow half of the year (including dec 4-7)! This trip could make all the difference in my world.

Thanks for this contest, I would love for a chance to win this contest. I think that I would be a good person to fit. I have gone through fitting through other companies in the past, and this would be a good way to prove that Taylormade has a better fitting experience than anybody else.
Plus it would be very easy for me to give detailed rewiews and compare them to other companies experiences.

50 years old and never been fitted, I've always told that I'm a standard fit. Regardless of winning a contest or not I plan on buying and being fitted for these new irons! Is it spring yet.

I am a short golfer at 5'4" with moderate swing speed.
I have only owned Japanese irons/woods/drivers mainly because of their stronger lofts and lighter shaft.
I think I am a perfect candidate for the new Taylormade RocketBladez distance irons.
I NEED DISTANCE!!!

I would love the opportunity to represent golfwrx and have a complete fitting for the new line of Taylor Made clubs. Playing competitively in tournaments I'd love the chance at a full fitting and to use the kind of technology Taylor Made has in their clubs to hopefully win some tournaments

Thanks

What an amazing opportunity!  I would like to be considered as a candidate because I have never been custom fit for any golf equipment.  The chance to travel down to Florida and be custom fit by professionals would be such an amazing experience.  I would be indebted to Taylormade for the rest of my golfing life!  Thank you for the chance to win, and just know what you're doing for the members on this forum is greatly appreciated!!

Well since I have only been playing for a little over a year I am an amateur with everything in my bag being used equipment. It would be nice for once to be dressed like the pros and fitted Properly like the pros with golf clubs that give me most most accurate and longest distance. And since I will never play on any professional tour this would be a once in a lifetime experience! Thanks Taylormade

Oh wow. The only really thing I can say is I can save TM some money on travel expense and drive myself across the state. I have to say Mark King is a really cool guy and since the show he was on I have wanted to try out some TM stuff. Good luck to all! Winning this would be bigger then the hole in one i hit on my birthday this year. I can also take along my DSLR and all my photog skills to capture the whole experience.

This contest is perfectly named.  A great location, an awesome tournament, and a fitting by the best in the business.  Truly an ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE.

I always wanted to be custom fit for clubs and longed to play in a pro-am.  This is my one chance.  This would be a dream come true!

This is definitely where I parked my car!

I just got married… and just prior to that I ended up getting to be pretty good at golf. It’s time to step up to better clubs with a custom fit… and there is no way the wife will let me. This is my only hope... if I want to stay married! Please help.

Wow great contest
I would love to win i could use a new set of Clubs since my current set is not fix correctly ( you would think that the guy doing the fitting at my local Roger Dunn would be smart enough to figure the 6'4" 270 pound 30 yr old man who is getting back into the game after 10 yrs away swing speed might come up a little and not fit him into Reg flex - It feels like swinging a wet noodle) I also love TMAG most of my equipment is from them i have no issues with white drive heads.

I would love to meet the shark i miss a chance when he came to the winery i work for a few yrs ago we were making wine for his Greg Norman CA wine label

I hope you have patience to read all this, my 3 year comeback story.

I have been playing Taylormade equipment since I started working in the golf industry when I was 18 in 2007. I worked as a Pro Shop Assistant in New Jersey for 3-4 years while attending college to get my Business Management degree and then enroll to become a PGA apprentice after I graduated.  That was all put on hold at the end of the 2009 golf season just before I started my junior year of college. A fellow staff member turned a cart to sharply and rolled over a curbed onto the cart part at full speed landing the cart on top my legs and the roof missing my head by a few inches.  I woke up with the driver of the cart pulling it off my legs and then pulling me back into the pro shop before calling the ambulance.

I had broken my left foot (plant foot, as I am right handed) clean in half, 12-14 places total and tore knee ligaments. I split my head open as if bounced off the concrete and had a large baseball size gash on my temple. I tore two golf ball size chunk of skin out of my knee and tore the skin off the top of my foot. I was stuck in for 14 days because of the intense swelling and pain and had to redress the wounds 3 times a day to keep from becoming infected. I lost almost 20lbs over these 2 weeks before finally being able to move around just as school started. I was on crutches and in a full leg brace and large boot.

A few months later, on top of taking 15 credits of college classes, I began my intense physical therapy to re-learn how to walk/run and move without pain. It was 3 hours a day, 3-4 days per week and it took me 12 months before being cleared to run/golf again.  Luckily the wound to my head healed without any major scaring, and the large scars on my knee slowly faded and became less sensitive. At this time I graduated college in the spring of 2011 and began working as the Golf Operations manager at Country Club in Virginia and had to relearn the game of golf all over again. Each day the pain (which is now constant) became more and more manageable and I was able to find a way to move onto my left foot/knee without fear of reinjuring it.  From the time I started playing golf again in the middle of 2011, I couldn’t break 85 as I continued to have trouble with my leg. This was a long fall from the single digit handicap I was before my accident. I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to regain my skill and the mobility that it took play at a high level.

I set out to continue practicing and strengthen my leg and foot trying to regain my form. It took another 15 months to go from a basically a new golfer, to a low handicap of 2, as close to where I was before my accident.  At this time I finally was able to attempt to take my PGA playing ability test in October of 2012. I passed on my first attempt and was able to start the process to register to become a PGA Apprentice.  At this point, nearly 3 years after the accident I feel I am finally back on track to my goal of one day becoming a PGA Professional. I have attempted to get on staff for TMAG but I am not far enough along in the PGA program yet to have that happen.

I would love the opportunity to be custom fit and tour all the new facilities that Taylormade has just built. Taylormade has been my club of choice for 5 years and wouldn’t play anything else. They are the first clubs I recommend to customers looking for something to try. At 5'5" without full mobility in my leg and foot, I could use all the help I can get hitting my irons longer and more consistently. I hope you guys find my story worthy of selecting!

Thanks for taking time to read all of this.

I have never been custom fitted for any golf club while I'm a +2 index, starting in January I will go for a full year of Monday qualifiers and then q school.  If the rocketbladez really do everything they claim to, then I feel my chances of making it would be that much better with a set of custom fit rocketbladez tour irons..... let me find out!
