WHAT'S NEW spider putters 5 models to take for a spin i t's no secret that the Spider putter line from TaylorMade has been tremendously successful, both with amateurs and touring pros alike. In 2017 alone, the putters have been in the bags of a first-time Masters champion, a player who has won five times in seven months on the PGA Tour and the player who started the year at No. 1 in the world rankings. "We have what we feel is the best performance putter out there, and then when you get players like Sergio Garcia, Jason Day and Dustin Johnson to jump on board, it's a game-changer," said Bill Price, a Senior Director of Product Creation for TaylorMade. "Players are often reluctant to change from the classic blade putters, but when they do, they see the stability and that it's easier to roll the ball on line and in the hole." Golfers who have bought into the Spider movement will be thrilled to know TaylorMade is releasing five new models, including a red putter with an added sightline. Players also will be able to get their hands on a Spider with a double bend hosel, one with a plumber's neck or L neck, another with a center shaft, and a fourth with a plumber's neck and a new diamond silver color. "Different players have found that they really like certain colors – it's a lot like buying a car," Price said. "It's been by far the most successful putter we've ever had." > CliCk here to shop now. taylormade p•790/m CGb irons built for speed p layers who like a smaller and lower-offset look but also want forgiving characteris- tics will love TaylorMade's new irons. Ideal for low- to mid-handi- cappers, the P790 irons offer a su- perb combination of distance, forgiveness and workability thanks to the company's patented SpeedFoam technology. "The foam essentially fills in all the empty spots, and while it's great for dis- tance, I think the best part is the feel it creates," said Logan Kapaun, a sales rep at the Roger Dunn Santa Ana Superstore. "It gives you that feel all over the face of the club, so whether you hit it on the toe or heel, it's going to dampen the vibration. There's also a little tungsten down low to help improve ball flight. Everything they've done is groundbreaking stuff." The M CGB irons, meanwhile, are a reimagining of the R7 CGB irons that were so well received, with updated technology throughout the club, including ultra-low CG, multi-material head construction, Speed Pocket tech- nology and face slots. The line is geared for high handicappers seeking game im- provement from their irons. > CliCk here to shop now. extra!
