TaylorMade Golf Company Introduces Phenom Junior Clubs
Continuing its Support of Junior Golf Initiatives, TaylorMade to Donate Portion of Proceeds from Every Set Toward PGA Junior League Golf
CARLSBAD, Calif. (May 9, 2016) – TaylorMade Golf, makers of the No. 1 Driver in Golf, introduced today Phenom, a set of clubs designed and engineered to support junior golfers with proper swing fundamentals through optimized lengths, weights and lofts, allowing for shots from tee to green with consistent distance gapping throughout the set. For each club in the set, the shafts have been both flex and weight-optimized and made to appropriate lengths, while the grips have been developed to meet the needs of smaller hands, allowing proper feel throughout the swing.
Driver & Fairway
From the makers of the #1 Driver in Golf, the Phenom driver is a 400cc titanium driver made to the same exacting standards of performance and design for which TaylorMade drivers are known. Designed at the USGA limit of COR, the Phenom driver delivers remarkable distance, forgiveness and easy launch technology in a visually appealing design, three key performance attributes rarely found in junior sets. The Phenom fairway wood features a stainless steel head with a low profile, low-CG design, providing technology that will help junior golfers get the ball airborne off the tee or from the fairway. A larger head size adds forgiveness and promotes confidence at address.
Rescue & Irons
Similar to the fairway wood, the Phenom RescueTM club features a stainless steel head design in the first Rescue that junior golfers will be excited to hit. Designed to be easy to launch with long distance, the versatile Rescue will also help bridge the critical gap between a players’ fairway wood and irons.
Perimeter weighted heads highlight the Phenom irons and wedge. Forgiving performance with generous offset assist in squaring the face at impact, enabling high and straight shots with greater accuracy. The multi-functional sole design aids in easy playability from a variety of lies and turf conditions.
Putter & Bag
The Phenom putter is a face-balanced, center-shafted mallet that has been designed for easy alignment and a soft, solid feel at impact. Heel-toe weighting delivers forgiveness on mis-hits, while the grip was specially-designed to promote optimum stability. Rounding out the set, the ultra-lightweight stand bag features dual ergonomic straps, premium materials and ample storage.
