Company’s New Truck Further Exemplifies its Commitment and Dedication to its Industry-Leading Player Tour Staff
CARLSBAD, CALIF. (March 26, 2019) – TaylorMade Golf Company, an industry leader in product innovation and technology, today announced the debut of its new, completely re-designed Tour truck, set to make its inaugural appearance on Tour next month at the season’s first major championship. The truck solidifies TaylorMade’s commitment to its world-class Tour staff, widely considered the most elite in the industry.
“With our new truck, the company has made a definitive statement that serves as yet another example of our ongoing commitment and dedication to the best players in the world. It’s a place they can not only come to have their equipment built, but a place they can come hang out and truly feel like part of the TaylorMade family.”
Inspired by the trucks operated on the Formula 1 circuit, TaylorMade has designed the new Tour truck from the wheels up in collaboration with St. Louis-based industrial fabrication experts, Craftsmen Industries. Featuring dual slide-out pods and for the first time a second level for meeting space, the company’s new truck is the biggest and first of its kind on the PGA TOUR.
Weighing 22 tons, the company’s new 42-foot long Tour truck features twelve individual player lockers, four 4K HDR televisions and a two-zone sound system. A modernized workshop includes multiple loft/lie machines, shaft cutters and a dedicated gripping station among a variety of other club building tools for TaylorMade’s Tour team.
In its decade-long run for TaylorMade, the retired trailer traveled an estimated 400,000 miles, attended more than 350 PGA TOUR events and built over 75,000 clubs. TaylorMade’s new truck, set to make its debut at the Season Opener in April, is bigger, boasts more capacity, more workspace and more advanced technology than any truck currently on Tour.

44,000:weight(in pounds)of the trailer
35,000: estimated travel miles in first full year on the PGA TOUR
1,200: TP5 & TP5x golf ball
