ORLANDO — TaylorMade Tour Staff professionals Justin Rose and Jason Day, competing in the 18-man Hero World Challenge, debuted the new R15 driver this week at Isleworth Country Club. Rose (6) and Day (8), two of the top 10 players in the world, are the first two TOUR players to use the product in competition, initially testing at the 2015 TaylorMade commercial photo shoot earlier this fall and putting it in their bags this week. Both players conducted extensive product testing on Tuesday in Orlando before taking the new drivers for on-course play and evaluation during Wednesday’s Pro-Am.
After 36 holes, Rose (-8, T3) and Day (-6, T8) find themselves in striking position for the weekend. Especially impressive was Rose’s second-round 64 which included 11 birdies.
