TaylorMade introduce Junior Rory Irons

1/11/2018

TaylorMade Golf, the industry leader in high performance product innovation and makers of the #1 Driver in Golf, announced the Rory Junior Golf Sets, inspired by and created through input from Rory McIlroy to welcome the beginner and developing player to the game of golf. The introduction of young players to the game is a passion point for TaylorMade and McIlroy, who himself was introduced to the game at a very young age.

"Growing up, golf was an extremely important part of my life. It allowed me to stay active, enjoy the outdoors and have fun within a competitive sport. I partnered with TaylorMade to design the Rory Junior Set to give kids an easy introduction to golf so they can have the same opportunity I had to fall in love with the sport." — Rory McIlroy

 

Incorporating many of the same technologies found in other TaylorMade products, each has been specifically engineered to deliver the optimal lengths, lofts and shaft flexes to promote proper swing mechanics for junior golfers while developing their passion for the game.

Driver

At 16° of loft and 400cc in size, the Rory titanium driver was designed to instill confidence and be easy to hit and produce high launching drives off the tee. A high-quality, high-performing product created specifically with the junior player in mind.

"For me, confidence is the most important thing when I'm standing on the tee. This driver has been specially-designed to help young golfers hit it far and straight so they can start building their confidence from the first time they tee it up." — Rory McIlroy

 

Irons

 

Made from 17-4 stainless steel, the irons in the two sets were strategically developed with loft configurations that help launch the ball high and straight. The 4-plus set features an iron loft 2 degrees lower than the 8-plus set to encourage higher lofts for easy launch for the younger player.

 

"Growing up, nothing felt better than hitting it close with an iron. With these easy-to-hit irons, young golfers will experience that feeling that keeps them coming back for more." — Rory McIlroy

 

Putter & Wedge

 

Among the most important skills a junior golfer can learn are the fundamentals of putting. The center-shafted mid-mallet putter was created with short-game development in mind by way of higher stability combined with easy alignment. For greenside chipping and bunker play, a 54°/56° wedge will help make this critical part of the game easier to learn and have more fun.
