    THP Live Coverage - TaylorMade SLDR S Metalwoods & SLDR Irons Launch

    As you probably know by now I am in California with Ddec at the wonderful La Costa Resort for a very special event. This event is being hosted by TaylorMade Golf and it's the launch of their new SLDR S Metalwoods and SLDR Irons!

    You can read the press release and see stock images on them here (metalwoods) and here (irons).

    Throughout the day today I will be updating this thread with live posting from this event. We will get a full education on these new clubs, and you are going to learn about them at the same time we will. Then Ddec will get a chance to try these clubs during a round at the Champion course right here at La Costa. I will use this thread to live update from his round as well.

    For the lucky 8 guys sponsored by TaylorMade in the Morgan Cup....now you know why you haven't ordered your clubs yet.
