TaylorMade are very well known for sponsoring a stack of the worlds best players, but they’ve decided to focus their attention on the games next generation with their latest launch. Junior golfers haven’t always been the most well catered for before, but TaylorMade want to change all that with their new Phenom range which will be available from next month.
TaylorMade say each club in the sets been engineered specifically to suit juniors and optimised shaft lengths, weights and lofts encourage proper swing fundamentals. Each clubs been optimised to provide consistent gapping and meet the needs of smaller hands throughout the swing.
Driver and Fairway
The Phenom driver has a 400cc titanium head which has been made to the same exacting standards TaylorMade drivers are known for. The club face is at the legal COR limit to maximise face flex, ball speed and carry distance, offering maximum distance and excellent forgiveness. The fairway just like an adults model is made from stainless steel and combines a low profile and low-CG design to maximise playability from the tee or fairway.
Rescue and Irons
The forgiveness and playability theme run throughout the rescues and irons too, as everything has been designed to be easy to launch off the turf for higher straighter shots. The irons are perimeter weighted, have a good amount of offset and a multi-functional sole to ensure playability from all lies and turf conditions.
Putter and Bag
To top the set off there’s also a centre-shafted mallet putter to ensure easy alignment, and added forgiveness thanks to the toe and heel weighted design. There’s also an ultra-lightweight stand bag which has plenty of storage for drinks bottles and Mars bars.
The Phenom set with be available from 1st June 2016 and it comes in two configurations.
