Thorbjørn Olesen latest to join team TaylorMade
TaylorMade Golf Company has added to its roster of talent with the signing of the current British Masters Champion Thorbjørn Olesen.
Since joining the DP World Tour full-time in 2011, Olesen has enjoyed six wins, including winning the 2022 British Masters on Sunday at The Belfry. Olesen also won a Rolex Series event at the Italian Open, which secured his place as part of the winning Ryder Cup team in 2018 at Le Golf National.
Olesen stepped into the professional rankings in 2008 competing on the Nordic league in 2009, graduating to the Challenge Tour in his first attempt. Olesen followed this with a successive promotion up to the DP World Tour, gaining his full playing rights for the 2011 season. Olesen would go on to win his first DP World Tour title the following year at the Sicilian Open.
Thorbjørn Olesen said:
”I’ve been playing TaylorMade on and off for a while now and I felt that the best golf I’ve played has been with TaylorMade clubs.
”TaylorMade’s a great company to be a part of, it’s a great team with great players. I’m proud to be associated with TaylorMade and I look forward to the future together.”
The Ryder Cup winner put Stealth Plus in the bag at his first start of 2022 season and has already seen an increase in his average distance by eight yards versus 2021.
Adrian Rietveld, TaylorMade Senior Tour Manager, said:
Thorbjørn has chosen to use TaylorMade equipment for the majority of his successes in world golf which include a winning Ryder Cup team appearance and a Rolex Series win. We appreciate that a player of his standard has exclusively chosen to use 14 TaylorMade clubs and a TP5 golf ball as he continues to compete at the highest level of the professional game. Thorbjørn is a superb golfer with a bright future and we look forward to supporting his undeniable potential along with his wonderful family and team around him.
