Tommy Fleetwood joins TaylorMade in multi-year deal; Fleetwood 2021 WITB

Published

on

TaylorMade has officially announced that Tommy Fleetwood has joined its tour staff in a multi-year deal.

The Englishman is no stranger to TaylorMade equipment and has been playing a set of prototype irons built by the company since 2019. For 2021, Fleetwood will play a bag with TaylorMade woods and irons, as well as the brand’s TP5X (2021) #19 golf ball, as he continues to test wedges and putters.

Per the company, Fleetwood upholds strong ties to Adrian Rietveld – who was TaylorMade’s lead technician on the European Tour before making the move stateside in 2019 – and he also played a variety of TaylorMade metalwoods after becoming an equipment-free agent in 2016.

“This could be the start of something special. I have a feeling there are some exciting times ahead, I couldn’t be happier to join Team TaylorMade.” – Tommy Fleetwood

Fleetwood is a five-time winner on the European Tour and has also had three top-5 finishes in the majors, two top-5 finishes in WGCs and a top-5 finish at the Players in 2019. In the Ryder Cup 2018, the 30-year-old went 4-1-0 winning 4/4 fourball and foursome matches with Molinari.

Speaking on the new signing for Team TaylorMade, David Abeles, CEO, TaylorMade Golf said

“Tommy Fleetwood is a premier golfer, but he’s an even better person. Statements like that get thrown around a lot, but if you ever have the chance to spend time with him, you’ll immediately know it’s true. There’s a warmth, sincerity and wit about Tommy that stands out. He’s the ideal fit for Team TaylorMade as we embark on a journey to become the most people-centric golf brand in the world. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome him to the team.”

    It says Diamana DF shafts in the woods but the bottom of the shafts are silver/ ion in colour, are these not the BF or ZF version? the DF is all black colourway?

Pros are just like us: Putting practice at the 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational

Published

on

The great equalizer in the game of golf is putting, and just like every other golfer that plays the game, PGA Tour players are always working to improve their work with the flatstick.

Much like the short game, putting does not require brute strength and generally comes down to simple technique and repeatability. This week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, we spotted a lot of pros on the practice green working hard with all types of training aids trying to improve on just that.

Bryson’s GC Quad meases 400-yard drives and 3-foot putts.

Spieth is always grinding with his favorite Scotty Cameron.

You don’t get to be the 16th ranked player in the world like Matt Fitzpatrick without working hard on your putting.

Kevin Kisner spotted working on core stability

Shane Lowry using the popular “gate” drill

Ian Poulter has been recently searching for a putter—and that pile behind him indicates he’s still looking.

Poulter was even spotted checking in with others around the green

Jason Dufner using the “bellied wedge drill” to help level out his stroke and improve contact.

The Putting Arc is a classic training aid that we continue to see players utilize

The Pelz trainer continues to be one of the most popular tools on tour
