TaylorMade signs Matthew Wolff to a multi-year deal; Wolff WITB

Published

on

TaylorMade Golf has officially announced the signing of Matthew Wolff on a multi-year agreement that will see the 20-year-old play the company’s metal woods, irons, wedges, putter and ultimately, TaylorMade’s flagship golf ball, the TP5x.

Wolff had previously unveiled that he would be making his professional debut at this week’s Travelers Championship, and just as top prospect Collin Morikawa did earlier at this month’s Canadian Open, Wolff will do so as a TaylorMade staffer.

The NCAA All-American and 2019 NCAA Division I individual champion made his debut on the PGA Tour at the Waste Management Phoenix Open earlier this year where he finished T50 after opening his week with a round of five-under par.

    Good to see the P750’s in his bag

    Great irons and they won’t be leaving my bag anytime soon

    Unless he’s Tiger or Rory, he’s not getting a major deal. Wolff has the potential though, great game, unique swing that has people talking, great distance, and already placed 50 in his first pro tournament. He’s good, and he’s going to get paid. I think most golfers make the bulk of their cash on tour though.

    It’s nice to have staff fully tuning the clubs to your liking. Also not have to worry about what to wear each day at the tournament lol.

    He’s had all that support at OSU and is not changing any clubs

    Not sure what he was playing at OSU but if it wasn’t Taylormade, it might take a little while for him to get accustomed to his clubs. I am sure he will do well and wish him well also. Looks like the real deal to me.

    I read another article that said the contracts for the college kids are over 100k guarantees

    How much does a new college grad usually sign for with a company? Obviously skill level matters here but is someone like Wolff getting millions or hundreds of thousands?

      All the range balls he can handle and a couple of used wedges. All kidding aside, I’d guess not a lot at first with some performance incentives. Perhaps $50-100K with bonuses for top 10’s or wins. Obviously full access to equipment and tweaking etc. It’s got to be a real bonus to have direct and easy access to all the tech and data of a major manufacturer vs. having to go out and figure it all out on your own with your own equipment or someone else’s. IMO that’s more important at this point than any money he’s going to receive at this early stage.

        He is getting more than one might think here. He is projected big! He has been a TM player but it wasn’t automatic.

          Investment paid off already. This guy has the length to compete on any course. Another Genkas player.

SIM Max vs SIM2 Max – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been comparing and contrasting the original SIM Max with the latest SIM2 Max driver. WRXer “Spaceman1976” is torn between the two and reaches out to fellow members saying

“If anyone can offer their experiences with both drivers, I would greatly appreciate your feedback. I do see more SIM2 drivers for sale on the board than SIM drivers.”

And WRXers have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Yoshimonster: “Very minor difference between them. Go with Max.”
  • philleeeep: “I thought there was a big difference in sound. Hard to explain, but I personally preferred the SIM Max.”
  • tleader: “Love my SIM Max. Very little (if any) difference to “upgrade” to the SIM2 Max if fitted correctly.”
  • Kale_m: “Sim2 sounds and feels softer. Still super hot but just a different sound and feel. I personally like it. Sim2 is more neutral flight to me. I am playing it at a lower loft and in the upright setting. Dead straight bombs. Sim was much more fade biased, even when in the upright setting.”
