In-hand photos of Dustin Johnson’s patriotic TaylorMade M1 460

Published

on

Recently, TaylorMade released a special-edition M1 460 driver, replicating Dustin Johnson’s winning driver setup from the 2016 U.S. Open, except with some Patriotic customizations. Now, the No. 2-ranked golfer in the world has the driver in his bag.

Showing off his patriotism, Johnson put the special-edition driver into play last week at The Barclays; and this week at the Deutsche Bank Championship, we shot in-hand photos of the club. It would also be no surprise to see him using the driver at the Ryder Cup at Hazeltine later this month, where he’s already locked up a spot on Team USA.

The drivers, which come equipped with Fujikura Speeder 661 Tour Spec shafts, were available in 9.5 and 10.5 degree lofts for $799 and were released on August 26. Something tells us DJ didn’t have to purchase his through TaylorMade’s website, however.

    Looks so good, USA all the way. Just in time for the Ryder Cup. #Merica

    I’m guessing a good number of these will be bought and placed on shelves in trophy rooms or bars with the hope that one day they can get DJ to place his signature on the crown. There’s no way I’d game it unless I had enough money to buy 2, haha. Then again, if I had “enough” to buy 2, then I’d probably just buy all PXG clubs instead 🙂

    How about the patriotic Donald Trump model.

    Proceeds from all sales could go towards building the wall 🙂

          Yeah yeah. Small runs cost more to produce. Don’t act like it doesn’t cost anything to manufacture stuff. I personally think it looks very nice, but is just way too pricey. I see them on eBay 550 or so, but that’s still a lot of coin for a driver that only looks different from the regular version.

            The shaft that comes in it is where the price increase comes into play. Just a small mark up for the paint job and the partriot z grip. $800 is too much for any golf club unless it’s coming from Japan.

Spotted: Nelly Korda’s TaylorMade P7CB irons

Published

on

We have seen some prototype TaylorMade cavity back irons floating around professional tours recently. The irons were just labeled “Proto” on the back. Rory McIlroy had the 4-iron in the bag, while Michael Block had an entire set in play at the PGA Championship.

We all speculated what the iron was and what the name might eventually be upon release, and now we know. It looks like TaylorMade is going with “P7CB,” since we spotted Nelly Korda testing clubs that bear that name this week.

We have heard players like Rory speak about the irons and how they are seeing a little better ball speed and controlled spin on mishits. A softer and more consistently solid feel has also been mentioned as an improvement with these new irons.

We still don’t know all the details yet as TaylorMade isn’t ready to give those up, but hopefully, we will learn more soon about these forged cavity back irons.

WITB Time Machine: Bubba Watson’s winning WITB, 2018 Travelers Championship

Published

on

Bubba Watson captured his third victory at the Travelers Championship in 2018, erasing a six-stroke deficit with a final-round, 7-under 63 to top a quartet of golfers at 14 under par.

“I feel like this is my home course,” Watson said. “As soon as they put the schedule up, I sign up for this. I want to come back here. This means so much, not only from the golf side of it, but from the family side. My dad, it was the only time he got to see me win (in 2010). He got to see me qualify for the Ryder Cup at this event.
