That afternoon Mary Lou and her husband, the Reverend Dr. William E. Smith, sat in their Ohio home for the Masters telecast. "As soon as we turned the TV on and saw that Jack was wearing the yellow shirt," says Dr. Smith, "we knew that was no casual decision." Yellow goes with green, but the color Nicklaus had chosen was about friendship not fashion. "We knew," Dr. Smith adds, "he was doing it in memory of Craig."

The taylormade r11 fairway wood brings new technology, innovation, and aesthetics to the proud line of TaylorMade clubs. One nice feature of the fairway wood is the reduced sole area, designed for less turf resistance at impact. The fairway contact area is 35% less than that of the R9. This should translate into fewer fat shots and more consistent flight off the deck.

As expected, the fairway woods mirror the driver’s design with a few differences. You get the new ASP and the loft adjustment with FCT, but no movable weights. You get up to 60 yards of side-to-side trajectory and you still get the ±1,000 RPM backspin adjustability.

I consider myself very lucky to be able to call Rotana hotels my second home and proud to associate myself with such a hotel brand that is expanding across the region. Customers all over the world will recognize the Rotana branding as I will be carrying it with me when playing internationally.

TaylorMade's Flight Control Technology allows you to adjust your r9 fairway wood to eight different head positions to launch the ball longer and straighter by changing the face angle, loft and lie angle. A new classic clubhead shape combines super-high MOI (moment of inertia) and easy-launching CG (center of gravity) position while Fujikura Motore 70-gram shaft with High Inertia Tip (H.I.T.) Technology promotes faster ball speed.

We had each player hit their current fairway wood for a few shots. Then we gave them the R9 in Neutral to hit for a few shots. Then we adjusted the club to assist with their game and they were able to hit a few more balls. Each of the 13 people were able to find a setup that suited their game.

The fairway wood was no different. We even had one equipment tester say "Call Taylormade and ask them how much to keep the club and not send it back?".
