Rory McIlroy, TaylorMade launch Rory Junior Golf Sets

Published

on

TaylorMade and company staffer Rory McIlroy have joined forces to develop two sets of junior golf clubs. The 4-Plus set, not surprisingly, is for players 4 and up, and the 8-Plus set, is for, well, you get the idea.

Marketed as “Rory Junior Golf Sets,” a driver, fairway woods, rescue, irons, wedges and a putter are all included. The 4-Plus set has five clubs, while the 8-Plus has two additional irons.

“Growing up, golf was an extremely important part of my life. It allowed me to stay active, enjoy the outdoors and have fun within a competitive sport. I partnered with TaylorMade to design the Rory Junior Set to give kids an easy introduction to golf so they can have the same opportunity I had to fall in love with the sport,” McIlroy said.

According to TaylorMade, the sets utilize technologies from other company products with lengths, lofts, and shaft flexes optimized for juniors (example: easy-to-launch 16-degree driver).

Set makeups, courtesy of TaylorMade, below. The titanium driver is 400cc and the irons are made from 17-4 stainless steel.

    It’s good to see Rory get in on the act. My grandson is a big fan of Rory and it inspired him to go out and play golf. I’m sure if he was a little younger this would have been an ideal set of clubs.

    WOW! TM wasting time with kids clubs now? No money to go to the PGA Show and spending time working on selling “toy clubs”? Company is worth about $300 now, down from the $425 mil paid for it!
    “Twist Face” seems to be “twisting in the wind” lol!

    Actually the price is reasonable when compared to the competition, assuming the quality is much higher than the Topflite products. Cobra Jr products are very popular, US Kids is OK, and the Ping Prodi G set is excellent, $800 for a complete set, but it’s the best quality I’ve seen.

    What a joke. $300 and $400? So much for growing the game.

      What? Rory is one of the most liked golfers on the planet.

        Didn’t Rory say a couple years ago at a press conference that he isn’t out there to grow the game or be a role model, he is only playing to win trophies? If you didn’t see it, he did, and it effected my opinion of him.

    Thanks for the specs. Now I’ll go out and build 2 sets for half the price and no billboard.
