TaylorMade Releases New Burner SuperLaunch Irons and Rossa Monza Spider Vicino Putters

May. 11, 2010     By     Comments (4)

Bag DropThis week at the Bag Drop, we've got the lowdown on some new irons and a new putter from TaylorMade, both of which have basis in some previous models.

We'll be taking a look at the new Burner SuperLaunch irons, which take dead aim at the higher handicapper and give them everything they need in a SGI iron. Once we're done there, we'll shift gears and see the latest creation from master putter craftsman Kia Ma, which is called the Rossa Monza Spider Vicino. Bet you can't say that five times fast! Can someone call the guys in marketing and tell them they're getting a little carried away with the names? Of course, I'm just kidding, but don't my bad jokes stop you from following along as we see what the latest from TaylorMade has to offer.

Hittin' the LinksHello again golf fans and welcome to another edition of Hittin' the Links. The Players Championship certainly didn't disappoint this weekend. The TPC Sawgrass is one of the very best tournament courses to watch on television. While it isn't a major, The Players is just a little more than a regular Tour stop.

In this latest edition of HTL, we begin by taking a look at Tiger's future, then turn our attention to John Daly's tournament schedule, and see what kept Lee Westwood out of the winners circle. Also, we investigate an unruly fan, find out who talked trash to Tiger, and do a wrap-up of Tim Clark's win in Florida. Read on!

Let’s Not Send Tiger Off Into the Sunset Just Yet

Thrash TalkThe winds of change are blowing but one man can restore order to the PGA Tour by himself.

There has been no shortage of "changing of the guard" and "youth movement" talk this week, thanks to two stunning performances on Sunday. Ryo Ishikawa made headlines with his closing round of 58 in Japan, followed by Rory McIlroy holding off a star-studded field with a 62 at Quail Hollow. Separately, they're two impressive showings. Put them together and you've got yourself a "trend!" And we in the media love nothing more than a trend. If you really want to take it to the next level, add the fact Phil Mickelson can take over the top spot in the world rankings and it all adds up to a PGA in flux.

Can we all take a deep breath please?

Bag DropNew equipment just continues to roll out at a steady pace as temperatures continue to rise across the country. If your bag isn't set for the rest of the season, you might want to make it a priority to do so. Because of course, once it's set, we're not lured in by other new shiny toys, right?

Perhaps you'll consider a set of irons from "that hybrid company" - Adams Golf. The number one hybrid maker is at it again, this time with a new brand name they're calling Idea Black. Now don't get confused, this is different than the Idea Pro Black hybrids we saw last October. This week we take a look at the soon-to-be-released Idea Black CB2 and Idea Black Super Hybrid from Adams Golf. So kick back, relax, and follow along as we see what these new sticks are all about.
