Bag of the Day: Kenny Perry
Kenny Perry was one of the first players to start using TaylorMade's Raylor rescue club when he put it into play at Bethpage during the 2009 U.S. Open. With a V-shaped sole, it helped him get the ball out of the wet, thick rough. But as the PGA Tour veteran prepares for the 2010 season he has pulled the club out and gone back to using the TaylorMade Rescue TP with FCT he'd previously been using. Like the Raylor, the Rescue TP has a weight screw in the back to help launch the ball high, but the Rescue TP also allows golfers to adjust the face into one of eight different settings to encourage specific ball flights.
According to TaylorMade, Perry also replaced his 14.5° TaylorMade Burner 3-wood with an older 13° TaylorMade V Steel in some post season events.
