TaylorMade Golf Company Expands the Storied Spider Franchise with Four New Putter Designs

SPIDER EX HEADLINES THE FOURSOME, WITH EACH OPTICALLY ENGINEERED TO MAKE AIMING AND ALIGNMENT EASIER WITH DISTINCT TRUE PATH SYSTEMS

CARLSBAD, Calif. (March 2, 2021) – Spider putters are among the most recognizable in the world, utilizing unique shapes and materials to deliver industry-leading performance in high-MOI mallets. Today, TaylorMade Golf Company announces four new additions to the acclaimed franchise: Spider EX, Spider X Hydro Blast, Spider S and Spider SR. Each model is equipped with a specialized True Path™ alignment system that fits the putter’s shape while aiding certain golfer profiles.

A lot goes into hitting a solid putt. With this new class of Spider putters, we focused on removing two of those variables: aim and alignment. Each model features its ownTrue Path that simplifies the aiming process and helps golfers set up to the ball the same way time after time. While each putter brings something unique to the table, they are bonded by a foundation of forgiveness, stability and True Path alignment that makes it easier to aim.Bill Price, Product Creation, Putters & Wedge

SPIDER EX | CONFIDENCE YOU CAN FEEL 

Spider EX is the foursome’s A player, utilizing an advanced multi-material construction to deliver optimal stability. The lightweight aluminum frame and carbon composite centre allow for strategic perimeter weighting, increasing MOI for consistent roll across the face and more forgiveness. It is outfitted with two 28g steel weights near the heel and toe, as well as heavy tungsten weights at the rear. The exact amount of tungsten varies for precision swing weighting in reference to putter length. 

Compared to Spider X, the new EX model is slightly larger (+3.5mm from heel to toe and +2.7mm front to back) but with a more streamlined shape that features softer lines and a rounded backside.  

Its new True Path is optically engineered to make it easier to aim, featuring a reflective white colour that spans the putter’s topline and allows golfers to use the face for alignment. Three dots enclosed by dual rails are used to centre the ball and promote a consistent address position. White was strategically selected as it is the most reflective colour and provides a clear focal point that makes the stroke and the path of the roll more visible. 

Spider EX features a new Pure Roll² insert, marking the company’s first multi-material insert made with co-molded construction. White TPU urethane surrounds eight silver aluminum beams to create 45° grooves designed to produce better roll and feel characteristics.  

Spider EX White

The all-new Fluted Feel™ shaft adds to this putter’s feel properties. It features a soft tip section intently designed to enhance feel, increase stability, and tighten dispersion. TaylorMade engineers worked in conjunction with KBS to develop this new shaft and, in the process, tested multiple iterations in a collaborative effort to maintain stability while adding feel. 

With existing shaft options, many players told us they couldn’t feel the full weight of the putter head or feel the toe release. We didn’t want to just make the shaft softer (add flex) to improve feel at the sacrifice of stability. That inspired us to go this journey with KBS and develop a shaft that delivers on both fronts.Bill Price, Product Creation, Putters & Wedge 

Collectively, Spider EX is designed for easy aim, better feel and enhanced stability to provide golfers with more confidence on the putting green. 

SPECIFICATIONS, PRICING & AVAILABILITY   

Spider EX will be available for preorder on March 2 and at retail beginning March 12 with an MSRP of $469.99 CAD.Available lengths include 34″ and 35″. Offered in three different colourways: Platinum/White, Navy/White and Ghost White. Hosel options include short slant (all colours), flow neck (Platinum/White & Ghost White) and single bend (Platinum/White & Navy/White). It comes equipped with the TaylorMade Fluted Feel™ shaft and Super Stroke Pistol GTR 1.0 grip. 

SPIDER X HYDRO BLAST | PROVEN PERFORMANCE WITH A NEW LOOK 

Spider X is the best-selling model in the franchise’s history, delivering proven performance at every level of the game. On Tour, it has accounted for 11 victories over the last two-plus seasons (including the start of the 2020-21 season) while also producing record-setting numbers at retail.  

380317 tm21ptr ta311 spider%20x platinum pureroll lfs bmw 00216 v1 a32751 large 1614212337

Spider X Hydro Blast builds on that tradition of success with an all-new colourway and finishing process. The high-pressure application of water to the aluminum body creates a smooth and premium finish in a rich silver colourway. Added durability is a byproduct of this process, as the absence of paint means no surface blemishes related to chipping and greater scratch resistance. 

It maintains the same advanced multi-material construction as the original Spider X, relying on a combination of aluminum (2g), steel (6g) and tungsten (12g) weights along with a composite centre to optimize MOI and stability. Its Tour-proven True Path design aids in alignment, while its white TPU Pure Roll™ insert delivers a soft feel and 45° grooves encourage better forward roll as well as improved sound, feel and overall roll characteristics compared to a solid face.

Spider X Hydro Blast

SPECIFICATIONS, PRICING & AVAILABILITY   

Spider X Hydro Blast will be available for preorder on March 2 and at retail beginning March 12 with an MSRP of $379.99CAD. Available lengths include 34″ and 35″. It comes equipped with the KBS Chrome C-Taper Stepless shaft and Super Stroke Pistol GTR 1.0 grip. 

SPIDER S & SPIDER SR | HIGH STABILITY FORGIVENESS 

TaylorMade introduced Spider S in 2020 as the most forgiving model in the Spider family, with an MOI of more than 6,000. The company has refreshed that original design with a new arrow-shaped True Path inspired by archery’s pinpoint precision. The newly engineered alignment system is optically designed to make it easier for golfers to aim. Located on the topline, it provides a clear focal point that is the exact width of a golf ball, which helps with consistent address positions and face direction. 

Spider S is manufactured from high-grade 6061 aluminum and is 100-percent machine milled for precision shaping. The square-shaped putter head is outfitted with two 42g sole weights strategically placed near the toe and heel to help stabilize the putter while optimizing CG location.  

380221 tm21ptr spider%20s spider%20sr platinum family lfs bmw 00158 v1 5525ed large 1614208466

A heavy tungsten backbar is used to further optimize swing weight based on the length of the putter. Coming in four different weights ranging from 40g to 70g, the backbar at the rear of the putter is designed to influence head weight, feel and performance. 

Stability is the calling card of the Spider family. With the all-new Spider SR (Stability Refined), TaylorMade delivers high-MOI performance in a Tour-inspired double wing shape. The multi-material design features two back weights crafted from either steel (10g) or tungsten (15g, 20g) to optimize swing weight.  

380324 tm21ptr ta316 spider%20sr platinum lfs bmw 00074 v1 2df088 original 1614212572

Due to a smaller footprint (5mm shorter front to back), Spider SR has a slightly lower MOI than Spider S. However, it’s still among the most stable and forgiving putters in the current Spider lineup. Another key differentiator is how True Path is positioned within the cavity behind the putter face. Also drawing inspiration from archery, the arrow-shaped design delivers an easy-to-aim alignment tool that promotes consistently centred ball positions at address.

Both Spider SR and Spider S are equipped with the all-new Fluted Feel™ shaft, delivering enhanced feel and optimal stability to putters that are already designed for forgiveness. The Tour-proven TPU Pure Roll insert provides a soft feel, and 45° grooves encourage better forward roll as well as improved sound, feel and overall roll characteristics compared to a solid face.

My Golffice – The Until The Next Tee Nerve Centre

To the victor, go the spoils.

When we were looking for a new place to live, my wife and I lucked out in finding an ideal situation. A 2 bedroom apartment with a den/office close to all of the amenities and a bus stop. I know, I know. This sounds like an ad on Kijiji or Craigslist.

I’ve never had an office to call my own anywhere that we lived, so I was excited about the prospects. But then, my wife got a new job and it was work from home. She needed a secure workplace so I bid a fond farewell to what could have been.

As it turns out, the “at home” job changed to Crystal returning to the site. Our internet provider lacked proper encryption or something, so, now we’re back to having t o drive her in every morning. It’s okay, it was nice having her working from home while it lasted.

But there’s another saying that when life hand you lemons, you make lemonade. So, as fate has it I now have my “golffice”. A space to call “sort of” my own. A place where I can practice putting, have all of my golf stuff out, work on my writing, and play guitar, It isn’t much but it’s mine. Not to mention, I have a quiet workplace just in time for the 2021 PGA Show, granted it’s virtual.

A few features headline my “golffice” namely my Big Moss putting green, my Arnold Palmer picture, my guitars (I know, it’s not golf-related) and other artifacts like books and autographs of John Daly and Craig Stadler.

The video below takes you n a tour of my modest golf nerve centre and where all of the magic happens at Until The Next Tee.

Next stop, the 2021 PGA Show.

Until The Next Tee!!

TaylorMade Golf Company Announces SIM2 Max and SIM2 Max OS Irons – Delivering the Next Level of Game Improvement Irons Through Cap Back Design

UNLOCKING DISTANCE, FORGIVENESS AND FORGED-LIKE FEEL THROUGH AN ALL-NEW MULTI-MATERIAL CONSTRUCTION

CARLSBAD, Calif. (January 19, 2021) – TaylorMade Golf, the industry leader in innovation and technology, today announced SIM2 Max and SIM2 Max OS irons – utilizing the company’s all-new Cap Back™ Design and evolved ECHO® Damping System to deliver unparalleled performance and feel to the category of game improvement irons. 

376116 tm21irn ta164 sim%202%20max lyd osn 06559 v1 ee046b large 1610669476

CAP BACK DESIGN, THE KEY TO UNLOCKING GREATER DISTANCE & SPEED 

The industry leading performance found in the original SIM Max irons inspired the TaylorMade R&D team to ask the question: “What would happen if we supported the entire topline from heel to toe?” Enter Cap Back™ Design.  

In developing this new iron construction, the company charted thousands of shots from players of every skill level – in the process identifying the most tightly clustered impact areas among solid strikes. Leveraging that data, engineers set out to expand the sweet spot to capture more of those shots, effectively pinpointing performance where golfers need it the most.  

Cap Back Design proved to be the key to unlocking this new level of distance and performance.  The strong, lightweight polymer material spanning the entire cavity helps to secure the topline and provides additional rigidity in the upper part of the face. It works in unison with the flexible Thru-Slot Speed Pocket™ to create a larger unsupported area of the face, which translates to improved flexibility engineered for increased ball speeds and distance. That added flexibility made it possible to deliver the larger, more intelligent sweet spot. 

Beyond added distance and speed, Cap Back Design helped produce a higher MOI with increased clubhead stability at impact to discourage twisting, which allows the golfer to enjoy solid strikes more often. When paired with the ECHO® Damping System, the multi-faceted design helps to minimize unwanted vibrations that create the harsh feel associated with traditional distance irons. Producing the signature forged-like feel and sound of SIM irons. 

Eclipsing the performance of conventional cavity backs, SIM2 Max and SIM2 Max OS provide a pathway to better forgiveness, distance and feel.

We set out to take game improvement irons to the next level with SIM2 Max and SIM2 Max OS. To create Cap Back Design, we utilized multi-material advancements learned from our metalwoods to unlock forgiveness and distance with forged iron like feel. We leveraged a completely new construction to achieve the performance that golfers in this category both need and wantMatt Bovee, Product Creation, Irons

ENHANCING THE ECHO® DAMPING SYSTEM – ELEVATED FEEL, POWERFUL DISTANCE 

Implementing Cap Back Design allowed TaylorMade engineers to redesign the ECHO® Damping System – which features a more concentrated HYBRAR material in SIM2 Max and Max OS irons. This super flexible insert stretches from heel to toe and is completely encapsulated. The softer polymer blend utilizes multiple contact points across the face to channel away vibrations, further contributing to the forged-like feel while still promoting maximum face flex.

373427 sim%202%20max tch 03 718279 large 1608035162

EVERY IRON ENGINEERED FOR ACCURACY & FORGIVENESS 

The new intelligently designed sweet spot is strategically positioned to capture the most common impact points, delivering explosive ball speeds and consistency where golfers need it the most. While that added forgiveness is fueled by Cap Back Design, the proven performance of Progressive ICT continues to enhance accuracy throughout the set. 

Most game improvement irons have an inherent right-bias, which is why many equipment makers resort to heavy offset to counterbalance the effect. With SIM2 Max and Max OS, however, Progressive ICT gradually shifts the sweet spot toe-ward in long irons to promote a neutral ball flight while also delivering corrective performance on the common right miss.  

An array of technologies, such as a fluted hosel, 360° undercut and an ultra-thin face, work in harmony to deliver a low CG that’s engineered to produce a high penetrating ball flight.

TaylorMade Golf Company Introduces the New Family of SIM2 Fairways and Hybrids

THE EVOLUTION OF V STEEL, TAKING CG LOWER TO DELIVER A HIGHER LAUNCH

CARLSBAD, Calif. (January 19, 2021) – TaylorMade Golf, the industry leader in innovation and technology, today announced the all-new SIM2, SIM2 Max and SIM2 Max•D fairway woods. In addition, the company unveiled its expanded hybrid offerings with the Tour-inspired SIM2 Rescue and SIM2 Max Rescue.

376105 tm21mwf sim2 fwy lyd osn 05369 v1 c4ccac large 1610669323

SIM2 TITANIUM, SIM2 MAX AND SIM2  MAX•D  FAIRWAYS  

The resurgent momentum of V Steel™  propelled  the original SIM fairways  to reset  industry  standards. For 2021, TaylorMade focused on refining that breakthrough technology to drive centre of gravity low to promote enhanced forgiveness and optimal launch conditions.  

In the world of golf club engineering, we fight for millimeters because those small changes can lead to big results. With the SIM2 Titanium fairway, we repositioned CG a mere 12.1mm from the ground. That delivers a CG projection that’s absolute centre face along with increased MOI for more forgiveness compared to last year’s model. We’ve gone low across the entire line of 2021 fairways, so golfers can go higher.Tomo Bystedt, Senior Director, Product Creation, Metalwoods

BUILDING ON THE BEST    

Improving upon all the elements that made SIM fairways a leader in distance, TaylorMade added a new level of forgiveness in SIM2 Titanium, SIM2 Max and SIM2 Max•D fairways. Powered by the iconic V Steel design that promotes enhanced turf interaction and playability from various lies, improved weight distribution delivers pinpoint CG projection for optimal MOI and launch properties.    

The more compact SIM2 Titanium fairway features a 170cc pear shaped head for a Tour-inspired look at address while still maintain a generous face size – combining properties of playability and forgiveness. It features a lightweight carbon construction with the revolutionary ZATECH Titanium Face and a heavy 80g steel sole weight. The strategically positioned weight creates an ultra-low CG that creates 5% greater MOI than its predecessor.  

With progressive face sizes for strategic forgiveness, the SIM2 Max fairway has a larger 190cc footprint and with a face constructed from strong C300 steel. Also featuring the reinvented V Steel for exceptional versatility from all lies, the SIM2 Max has refined weighting designed for forgiveness, higher launch and peak trajectories.   

Using data collected during the development of Twist Face, which shows the correlation between handicap, mis-hit dispersion and the need for draw-bias equipment, the 195cc SIM2 Max•D has been optimized for forgiveness with the largest head and face area in the current family of fairways.    

Matching the aesthetics of the SIM2 driver family, the carbon crown and contrasting chalk colour help frame the ball at address and improve alignment.

SIM2 & SIM2 MAX RESCUES – THE LEGEND GROWS

The impact of the original SIM Max Rescue was felt at every level of the game, from the amateur ranks to the world’s best. Week in and week out, SIM Max Rescue was played on Tour with approximately a dozen of the breakthrough hybrids in play any given Sunday. It even accounted for wins with current World No. 1 Dustin Johnson winning the 2020 Travelers Championship in record-setting fashion with two SIM Max Rescues in his bag. 

376111 tm21fam sim2 rescue lyd osn 05771 v1 a1becc large 1610669400

Building on that success, TaylorMade has expanded its hybrid offerings in 2021 to include the SIM2 Rescue and SIM2 Max Rescue. Fueled by the Tour pedigree of its predecessor, the SIM2 Rescue was designed with insights from Johnson, Rory McIlroy and more. 

It offers a fast and sleek appearance that seamlessly transitions any golf bag from iron to metalwood. A compact players shape provides added versatility for the golfer who wants an iron-like ball flight and workability. A new leading edge design, sole geometry and optimized CG placement maintain the forgiveness of the original SIM Max Rescue – ultimately delivering the distance of a game improvement hybrid without sacrificing precision and control. It features a +/- 1.5° loft sleeve to further dial in performance.  

Relying on the V Steel technology that revolutionized hybrid performance, the SIM2 Max Rescue brings Tour-validated results to golfers at every level. A more refined sole geometry redistributes weight for increased forgiveness while maintaining low CG properties.  

The ultra-strong C300 Steel face delivers a powerful ball flight and when paired with Twist Face, the corrective face curvature that’s designed to give everyone straighter shots on mis-hits, golfers can expect better distance and accuracy more often.

Tommy Fleetwood Joins Team TaylorMade With a Multi-Year Agreement

The Ryder Cup Hero is Among the World’s Best Ball Strikers and One of Golf’s Most Amiable Personalities

CARLSBAD, Calif. (January 20, 2021) – Team TaylorMade has one of the strongest lineups in all of professional golf. As a company built around product innovation, technology and authentic golfer relationships, the brand has attracted some of the best and most magnetic players in the world.

Today, TaylorMade Golf announces that it has again strengthened its professional team with the signing of 5-time European Tour winner Tommy Fleetwood. Recognized as one of the game’s elite ball strikers, Fleetwood will play TaylorMade clubs and the company’s flagship golf ball franchise, TP5.

376232 tm21irn tfproto tommyfleetwood phase12294 v1 e76bab large 1610760296

This could be the start of something special. I have a feeling there are some exciting times ahead, I couldn’t be happier to join Team TaylorMade.Tommy Fleetwood

On the international stage, Fleetwood is widely known for his stellar play in major championships and unforgettable Ryder Cup heroics. The 30-year-old turned professional in 2010 and over the course of his career has amassed three top-5 finishes in major championships and six top 20s – including a runner up at the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock where he shot a final-round 63, matching the lowest round in U.S. Open history.

Later that year, Fleetwood played a central role in Europe’s dominant Ryder Cup performance. He finished the week at Le Golf National in Paris, France, with a record of 4-1-0 as he led his team to a 17 ½ to 10 ½ victory – handing the U.S. one of its worst losses in the event’s 93-years.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Amateur wins: 2009 Scottish Open Strokeplay, 2010 English Amateur Champion
  • European Tour: five European Tour wins, 2013 Johnnie Walker Championship, Abu Dhabi Championship 2017 and 2018, plus two Rolex Series events 2017 Open de France and 2019 Nedbank Challenge, as well as the Race to Dubai Champion in 2017
  • Team: Ryder Cup 2018 he went 4-1-0 winning 4/4 fourball and foursome matches with Molinari
  • Other: Tommy has also had three Top 5s in the majors, two Top 5s in WGCs and a Top 5 at THE PLAYERS in 2019

Fleetwood’s relationship with TaylorMade runs deep. He has been playing a set of prototype irons built by the company since 2019 and upholds strong ties to Adrian Rietveld – who was TaylorMade’s lead technician on the European Tour before making the move stateside in 2019. He also played a variety of TaylorMade metalwoods after becoming an equipment free agent in 2016.

Tommy Fleetwood is a premier golfer, but he’s an even better person. Statements like that get thrown around a lot, but if you ever have the chance to spend time with him, you’ll immediately know it’s true. There’s a warmth, sincerity and wit about Tommy that stands out. He’s the ideal fit for Team TaylorMade as we embark on a journey to become the most people-centric golf brand in the world. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome him to the team.David Abeles, Chief Executive Officer, TaylorMade Golf
