TaylorMade, the world’s leading golf equipment manufacturer, in association with Trinity Golf, launched their new M3 and M4 Twist Face drivers and Ribcore Irons at Army Environmental Park and Training Area (AEPTA) near Dhaula Kuan in New Delhi.
Current and former World No. 1s like Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Jason Day and Tiger Woods use M3 and M4 drivers.
The launch was witnessed by TaylorMade’s team that included Urupong Sinthusard (GM-SEA, Taylormade-Adidas Golf ), Nisarat Chaimongkolchai and Worarak Wangtal from Thailand, and Sim Cheng Lock of Singapore. The event comprised 30 participants, who tried out the clubs as part of 2 competitions — M Iron Challenge and Longest Drive.
In the M Iron Challenge, each participant was given 2 chances to hit with a 7-iron of their choice, M3 or M4. The score computation was done through Trackman. Out of the 60 shots hit by participants, 28 were straight on the line — the biggest achievement of the Ribcore Technology used in these irons. Ribcore Technology gives distance along with accuracy and makes it the perfect iron for golfers to improve and excel in their game. The winner of the M Iron Challenge was Maj. Varoon Parmar, who hit a distance of 187.7 yards straight on the line (zero dispersion), and won the all-new M4 #3 Fairway Wood for his effort.
In the Longest Drive competition, the top 15 scorers from M Iron Challenge participated. Here too, each participant was given 2 chances to hit with their favourite M3 or M4 driver. The contestants loved the sound made when the driver came in contact with the ball. Even miscued shots landed in the fairway, proving the Twist Face technology that applied to the drivers. The winner of the Longest Drive competition was Rohan Kathuria with a distance of 268.4 yards straight on the line. Kathuria won an all-new M4 driver of his choice. Wg. Cdr. Jinender Singh, who hit 267 yards, was adjudged the runner-up.
Rising woman golfer Diksha Dagar was given special recognition for hitting 234 yards dot on line, beating the field by a fair margin.
