SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER: What difference have the new TaylorMade clubs made?
World No.1 Scottie Scheffler and TaylorMade Golf Company recently announced a multi-year partnership.
Scheffler secured his first two career PGA TOUR victories in 2022 in a three start span at the WM Phoenix Open and the Arnold Palmer Invitational with his TaylorMade Stealth Plus 8.0° Carbonwood driver and P·7TW irons.
Since then the Texan golfer continued his rapid acceleration towards the summit of the world’s golf rankings by winning the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play 4 & 3 over Kevin Kisner in the final match, marking his third win on the PGA TOUR in his last five starts.
Scheffler became the youngest player to win the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play event.
How much of a difference have the new clubs made to Scottie Scheffler?
In a preseason driver fitting session, TaylorMade representatives visited Scheffler’s home state of Texas to begin testing of Stealth Plus. With his current Stealth Plus 8.0°, Scheffler saw average ball speed gains of 3.4 MPH (177.4 MPH with Stealth Plus vs 174.0 with previous club) and carry gains of just over 11 yards (305.8 with Stealth Plus vs 294.7 with previous gamer). TaylorMade continued to dial in to the right set-up, which allowed Scheffler to continuously hit the desired shot shapes and shot types with the 60X Carbon Twist Face driver.
Scheffler put the Stealth Plus in the bag at his first start of 2022 at the American Express in January and has seen an average increase of 4+ MPH ball speed in tournament competition compared to his 2020-21 season average. He has had the P·7TW irons in the bag since the 2021 American Express, while previously playing TaylorMade’s P·730 irons.
