If you recall, earlier in the month I wrote about my custom club fitting experience at the TaylorMade Performance Lab at Grand Cypress. Just to reiterate, it’s a totally awesome experience and if you have a chance to check it out, I highly encourage you to do so! If you’re local, mention me and they’re going to give you 50% off the price.
Well, after the fitting was complete, the recommended clubs for me were the 2009 TaylorMade Burner irons, -.5 degree flat. After little to no deliberation at all, I decided to go ahead and take the plunge and purchase these bad boys (yes, for clarification, my clubs are male and they tend to get in trouble.., I don’t think any man should hit she-clubs.. just aint right.. 🙂 ).
After a few days of waiting anxiously, I arrived home to find a long rectangular box awaiting me… Inside were things of absolute beauty..
So, check this out, each set of clubs that are purchased as a result of a custom club fitting, are “Custom Built To Your Specifications By TaylorMade’s Line 13.”
TaylorMade Golf takes great pride in the work that goes into each and every custom club that leaves our warehouse. All MAT-T System orders are built by our “custom-build specialist” on Line 13, who together possess more than 80 years of combined experience building TaylorMade equipment. Each custom club produced by Line 13 undergoes a sophisticated series of internal and external audits to ensure maximum quality and accuracy. That includes precision bending with our own “Bulls-Eye Bending Machine,” which leverages sophisticated inclinometer technology to allow
us to measure each club’s loft and lie angle to within 1/100th of a degree. Between the skill of Line 13 and the cutting edge club-building technologies they employ (including advanced machinery that’s calibrated daily). TaylorMade guarantees that your custom order has been built to the precise specifications for which your swing was measured by the MAT-T System.
Totally awesome right?! In addition, each set of custom TaylorMade Burner Irons is assigned a Certified TaylorMade Club Builder, who sign a card that’s located in the box stating “I proudly verify that the specifications of this authentic TaylorMade golf club have been precisely measured and accurately built.”
So, Laura, Certified TaylorMade Club Builder # FU0122Z, I thank you for the loving and delicate handling and care you gave my new custom built 2009 TaylorBurner Irons. Because of you, I will become a scratch golfer, because of you, my gunmetal finish club heads will strike fear into the hearts of my opponents and because of you, my checking account is a lot lighter than it used to be….. 🙂
I’m going to be writing a review on the clubs, I’ve played one round with them so far and I’ve had a couple outings at the range, but I want to get used to hitting them a bit more before I give you my thoughts. I can say with complete certanty that wielding these babies is a definite confidence boost and you’re guaranteed to score with the ladies! (well, that 2nd part has no basis in reality, whatsoever.. just seemed like the right thing to say! 🙂 )
