The world number one and world number two are to continue playing TaylorMade Golf’s metalwoods, irons and ball, it was announced today (Wednesday September 21st).
TaylorMade say the move reaffirms the company’s commitment to fielding the strongest Tour staff in the industry and putting the highest performing equipment in the world in their hands as they compete on the sport’s biggest stages.
Jason Day, who first signed with TaylorMade in August of 2006, made his debut on the PGA TOUR that same year and hasn’t looked back since.
He said: “For so many years, I aspired to play at the highest levels of the sport and become the best player in the world.
“I chose TaylorMade at the onset of my PGA TOUR career because they made products that performed. They’ve supported me on my quest for world #1 since day one.
“I’m excited to continue working with the great team at TaylorMade and playing the best performing equipment in the game.”
Dustin Johnson, who first signed with TaylorMade in December of 2007, earned his 2008 PGA TOUR card by way of successfully navigating qualifying school.
Johnson has had at least one victory in each of the last nine PGA TOUR seasons, the longest such active streak on Tour.
Arguably the longest hitter on Tour, Johnson has been ranked inside the top five on the PGA TOUR in driving distance every year since earning his card and the American is looking forward to continuing his relationship with TaylorMade.
” I’m looking forward to continuing our teamwork and playing equipment that I believe in and has helped me to succeed,” he said.
“When I started my professional career, my goal was to be the best and win tournaments. I chose TaylorMade because they made products that outperformed anything else I had ever played.
“Since day one, I’ve had a great relationship with the TaylorMade team and especially the guys who support me every week out on TOUR.”
