GolfWRX Spotted: TaylorMade SIM2 fairway woods and hybrids on conforming list

Published

on

Just a few short weeks ago at GolfWRX, we were the first to share that the TaylorMade SIM2 drivers were officially on the conforming club list.

Now, with the new PGA Tour season starting up in Hawaii at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, more clubs are making their debut on the conforming list, including the SIM2 fairway woods and hybrids from TaylorMade.

TaylorMade SIM2 Titanium fairway wood

You don’t mess with a good thing, and the SIM2 titanium looks to be utilizing the same platform as the original 2020 version except with more of the steel soleplate’s mass moved further back in the head, likely to increase MOI.

TaylorMade is also sticking with the adjustability in the SIM2 Titanium.

TaylorMade SIM2 Max fairway wood

The SIM2 Max looks to also be following familiar lines with a V-Steel sole and no additional hosel adjustability.

The one thing to note is from the pictures available, the sole from heel to toe looks to be more rounded, which could make them easier to hit from the turf.

TaylorMade SIM2 Max D fairway wood

We can’t tell from the pictures, but if the SIM2 Max D is anything like the previous generation it will have a taller face and more upright lie angle compared to the standard Max model.

The internal weighting is going to likely be a big part of this club’s story, but unfortunately, since these are just sole images, those details will have to wait until we have more information.

2021 TaylorMade SIM2 rescue hybrids

The SIM2 Rescue looks to offer minor cosmetic changes, and a more curved sole to make it easier to hit from a variety of lies.

This is where things get interesting.

TaylorMade hasn’t had a truly adjustable hybrid since the GAPR line from a number of years ago, and with the success of the SIM brand, offering another club to help optimize the top end of the bag for golfers looking for adjustability makes this a no-brainer.

The shape looks to be quite similar to previous Rescue TP models that also offered adjustability but with a bunch of extra technology including the through sole speed pocket.

Conclusion

With the success of the 2020 SIM fairway woods and hybrids, TaylorMade is looking to refine and not redefine their metal woods line outside of the addition of an adjustable hybrid, which should prove to be very successful.

Both the SIM Titanium and steel fairway woods were top of their class when it came to performance and we should expect to see similar gains with these new releases.

What did your handicap do after changing irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the impact new irons had on their game and handicap. WRXer ‘2Down’ kicks off the thread with his recent experience, saying

“I changed Irons a bit ago, and while I haven’t seen a huge change, I believe things have stayed the same, and that’s a good thing. 

First and foremost I have maintained a fairly low handicap as I age. I think that, in a similar fashion, while I’m not longer with driver X from nowadays compared to the ago days. Driver I am near as long as I once was. Modern drivers have helped me stay long, so far. Now I believe the same is true with my irons, modern distance drivers and irons have helped me.”

And our members have been sharing their different experiences 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.

  • Jamie_Tee: “Gained 2 strokes per round. More shaft than head, but I’ve got a combo that allows me to hit the shots I see.”
  • Spankapotomusredux: “Cobra F9 OL. Dropped my handicap from 24 to 19 since March of this year. Regularly hitting the mid 80s this year for the first time in 20 years. Not fair to put it solely on iron play, however. I updated my whole bag when I started playing regularly again for the first time in a few years.”
  • North Butte: “My handicap is three strokes lower than it was four months ago, that was when I most recently changed irons. There’s been more going on than just that equipment change, though. I’ve adopted a slightly different way of playing short game shots in that same time frame. Taking a couple golf lessons for the first time since before COVID has to have helped, as well. But I’d say, conservatively, there surely has to be at least a stroke or so of that improvement due to the clubs. Not enough to get excited about but it ain’t nothing!”
  • Jifmoli: “No change. Went from SGI clubs to GI clubs but hc stayed the same. I did drop 9 strokes last year but that’s because I found a golden tip for chipping.”
  • lefthack: “Nothing, but my level of enjoyment has improved 3 points.”

How many adjustable clubs in your bag? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing adjustable clubs. WRXer ‘tannyhoban’ has one adjustable club in the bag (driver) and is curious to see how popular the feature is amongst fellow members who have been sharing their setups 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.

  • Tiptx1122: “I have my epic Max driver and my Epic Max 3W and 5W as those have moveable weights. Oh, I forgot my Piertti Potenza Elite putter has changeable weights too.”
  • lefthack: “3, but I haven’t adjusted anything other than the lie angle. Driver, 5 wood, and utility 3 iron.”
  • ChipNRun: “I was shocked to find only two: my driver and my hybrid. The season prior to COVID, the driver, 3W, 7W, and two hybrids were all adjustable. Driver and hybrid are now both different models.”
  • CpatainPat: “Zero.”
