Players with “TaylorMade” on the front of their hat are on a pretty good run. It started with the return of live golf at TaylorMade Driving Relief, where Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy teamed up to take on the OSU squad of Matthew Wolff and Rickie Fowler to the tune of $5 million raised for COVID relief.
The good vibes continued as Dustin Johnson won the Travelers Championship in June. Then Collin Morikawa found victory the Workday Charity Open at Muirfield. Just one week later, Jon Rahm won on the same course. As the summer months heated up, Team TaylorMade stayed hot with Morikawa’s major triumph at the PGA Championship and DJ claiming his first FedEx Cup title while playing hot potato with Rahm for the World No. 1 ranking.
There are so many moments to remember. From Collin forcing a playoff with a 25-foot putt on the 72nd hole of his win at Muirfield. Then DJ and Rahm trading blows in Chicago before Rahm ultimately claimed the BMW Championship. The drive at 16. Oh, how the drive at 16 has forever altered the course of Morikawa’s career – making him a major winner at the young age of 23.
On top of it all, we can’t forget DJ’s trouncing of the record books at The Northern Trust. We still laugh about 11-under-par through 11 holes.
It was a summer defined by big moments. As we enter the fall months, the stage is set for the perhaps biggest moment of all. Major championship golf in Augusta. As the leaves change, one thing remains the same – a majestic test of golf at the game’s most iconic venue.
With all the venerable layout demands, you can be sure the likes of World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Collin Morikawa and defending champion Tiger Woods have been dialing in their setups to meet the challenge. Let’s dive into their bags and take a look at how the world’s best are setting up their TaylorMade equipment this week.
