Rory Sabbatini Testing New Hybrids

Posted at 10:00 AM by David Dusek | Categories: Hybrid Clubs, Masters, Rory Sabbatini, TaylorMade

Sabbatini-Rescue-Clubs AUGUSTA, Ga. – Rory Sabbatini, who recently signed an endorsement deal with TaylorMade, asked the company's Tour reps to make him two new hybrid clubs on Monday.

The two clubs TaylorMade created were both R9 Rescue TP clubs, a 22° version that was de-lofted to 20° and a 19° was de-lofted to 18°. Both heads were set in the Neutral (N) position and featured Fujikura Motore F1 X-stiff shafts.

In 2007 Sabbatini finished tied for second place at the Masters, his best performance in a major to date. Although there were rain showers in Augusta Monday morning, the sun and wind appeared in the afternoon. The drier the course plays, the harder it will be to stop long irons on the greens. For many players like Sabbatini, that means replacing long irons with higher-flying, easier-to-stop hybrids.
