TaylorMade Golf Company Unveils PSi Irons Blending form and function, PSi delivers on the demands of the better player
Look Who had TaylorMade in their winning bags this year: 4-time winner, Jason Day…Dustin Johnson…Padraig Harrington…Brandt Snedeker…Justin Rose…Davis Love III to name just a few!
CARLSBAD, CALIF. (September 9, 2015) – TaylorMade Golf, the industry leader in iron innovation, has taken a new approach to the better player iron category with the introduction of the PSi™ and PSi Tour irons. Players have long been subjected to choosing an iron with either premium sound and feel or distance. With PSi, TaylorMade has found the perfect blend of form and function; an iron that delivers a rare balance of elegant design and superior feel combined with increased ball speed and distance. In doing so, TaylorMade has brought innovation to the better player iron category in a way that benefits those discerning players who seek the most out of their irons.
In designing TaylorMade’s most advanced players irons to date, engineers integrated the company’s new, proprietary Dynamic Feel System (DFS). Comprised of a HYBRAR™ blend compression damper and a multi-material cavity badge, this system works to reduce vibration across the face without sacrificing ball speed. Combined with redesigned head geometries, tungsten weighting in the long irons (3-5), and forged short irons (8-SW), the result is a truly dynamic approach to feel management in an iron that delivers on its promise for superior sound and feel throughout the set.
New to the PSi iron is a revolutionary new Speed Pocket – now a cut-thru slot that feeds directly into the cavity undercut. The Speed Pocket with the cut-thru slot yields more effective slot performance resulting in faster ball speeds for shots struck lower on the face. PSi also utilizes Face Slot Technology, a feature that debuted last year with the RSi series of irons. Face slots, located on the heel and toe of the clubface, protect ball speed and generate more consistent distance on shots struck off-center.
Consistent distance on shots across the face was a key deliverable in ensuring this iron met the demands of better players. Finally, an ultra-thin face (sub-2mm) contributes in supplying this compact iron with amazing distance. The 360° undercut expands the unsupported face area and lowers the CG to generate the optimal combination of speed, spin and launch angle, giving better players the trajectory they want and the distance they need.
The PSi irons also utilize a progressive spec package, ensuring each iron throughout the set delivers optimal performance. Blade length, topline thickness and offset increase progressively from the wedges down through the long irons, delivering golfers a confidence-inspiring, aesthetically appealing look at address.
“In creating the PSi, we wanted to make sure we understood the true needs of the better player before deciding how best to approach its design,” said Tomo Bystedt, Director of Iron Product Creation. “The total performance package had to meet or exceed the player’s expectation on look and feel while giving them performance they had never seen before. The consistency, workability and distance are something we think will be a revelation to all better players.”
In addition to the PSi, TaylorMade also announced the PSi Tour iron, designed with input from and engineered for the best players in the world. Featuring forged 1025 Carbon steel and precision milled face slots and Speed Pocket, PSi Tour features a more compact head size and tour-inspired shaping and workability for the best of ball strikers. Additionally, PSi Tour has a thinner topline, less offset and narrower sole than the PSi and its progressive CG position allows for higher trajectory in the long irons while retaining optimum workability. The PSi Tour is expected to be TaylorMade’s #1 played iron model on the PGA TOUR in ’16.
Pricing and Availability
Available at retail on November 6, PSi ($1099 steel; $1299 graphite) will be offered in 3-iron through PW with AW and SW also available. Golfers will have a choice of KBS Tour C-Taper 105 steel shafts (R, S & X) or MRC Kuro Kage Iron graphite shafts (80/R, 90/S or 100/X) in addition to numerous additional custom shaft options. PSi Tour ($1299) will be available at retail on December 20, and will be offered in 3-PW with Dynamic Gold S300 shafts in addition to a variety of custom shaft options.

Hotel Mogul Enhances Florida Community Through Education
Posted: 10/02/2014 10:25 am EDT Updated: 10/02/2014 10:59 am EDT
Harris Rosen has built an empire of hotels in Florida, but perhaps his most fruitful endeavor has been the Tangelo Park Program, which he founded to better a local community through education.
Rosen bought his first motel in 1974 and grew his business from there. Being fortunate to have a successful chain of properties, the Cornell graduate wanted to give back.
“Twenty-two years ago, planning Shingle Creek our resort, suddenly it occurred to me that I’d been blessed beyond anything I ever imagined and it was time for me to say thank you in some way.”
Rosen put his focus on Tangelo Park, a struggling community near Orlando, Fla. where, at the time, only 60 percent of students graduated from high school. He developed several programs in which parents, children and high school students could take part. This included an outstanding scholarship program.
“Every youngster who graduates from high school and is accepted into vocational school, or community college, or a public college in Florida gets a completely free college education — room, board, tuition, books, travel — everything taken care of,” he explained.
Since the Tangelo Park Program has been in place, crime in the neighborhood has been reduced and over 270 high schoolers have been sent to college. Of those students, 100 percent have graduated. Rosen stated, “We’re infusing in a neighborhood something that is missing: hope.”

TaylorMade Golf Announces SLDR Driver Guarantee
The No. 1 driver company in golf makes an unprecedented move: distance increase or your money back, guaranteed
Carlsbad, Calif. (March 21, 2014) – The SLDR from TaylorMade Golf has been the No. 1 driver on the PGA Tour for 29 consecutive weeks. It is the only driver to ever earn 20/20 stars in the Golf Digest Hotlist. Today, SLDR makes another unprecedented move: Distance increase or your money back, guaranteed.
Any golfer who purchases SLDR between the dates of 3/21/14 and 6/1/14 has the option of returning the driver for a full refund if they don’t gain distance off the tee. The offer not only covers both the SLDR 460 and 430 models, but also the fairway and Rescue clubs.*
“We have the science to prove why SLDR is the longest driver we’ve ever made. We have an army of Tour Professionals who validate the performance,” said Brian Bazzel, TaylorMade’s Director of Product Creation for Metalwoods. “We know there are golfers out there who don’t trust our science or what tour players do. So we’re encouraging these golfers to trust their own distance. That’s why we’re putting the SLDR Guarantee in play.”
Golfers who purchase any of the SLDR metalwoods between the designated dates, have 30 days to test the clubs and see for themselves why more PGA Tour players select SLDR than any other driver. Golfers have the option of calling a toll-free telephone number or going to taylormadegolf.com/guarantee to facilitate the return process. Those who elect to return the driver will receive a check within 12 weeks.
Many golfers have yet to experience the phenomenon of low-forward center of gravity (CG), which is at the foundation of SLDR’s performance. Low forward CG greatly reduces spin, and when coupled with a high-lofted driver creates the ideal conditions for distance: high-launch and low spin. Learn more about the benefits of “lofting up.”
Robot testing designed to emulate the average golfer revealed that adding loft with SLDR results in greater distance in identical conditions.
With the SLDR Guarantee, golfers everywhere now have an opportunity to experience the technology that powers SLDR at no cost. For more information, go to taylormadegolf.com/guarantee.
*Offer valid only on purchase of the SLDR driver (430 and 460 cc), SLDR fairway and SLDR Rescue made at authorized TaylorMade U.S. retailers only. Original receipt required for refund. Purchase must be made between March 21, 2014 and June 1, 2014. Return must occur within 30 days of purchase. If you purchased your SLDR metalwood online from an authorized TaylorMade retailer, TaylorMade will not reimburse original shipping and handling costs. Call 1-855-711-5683 or go to www.taylormadegolf.com for information on the return process. TaylorMade will send you a check within 12 weeks. REFUND LIMITED TO PURCHASE PRICE PAID AND EXCLUDES ALL TAXES. Only one return per product type per U.S. mailing address.
