The TaylorMade Rescue isn't a new line of clubs from TaylorMade, and in fact has been a dependable series for several years now. However, the new Rescue '09 set from TaylorMade is certainly something worth looking at. TaylorMade has long made great clubs that are worth looking at, and I had a feeling that the Rescue '09 would be no different. At first look the Rescue '09 certainly pleases the eye, and I was anxious to get it out on the course and see how it handled itself off the tee.
At first I noticed that the TaylorMade '09 had several stark improvements over the Rescue clubs from previous generations, but it was able to maintain the same build and shape. I thought this was a good choice since the feel of the club was something that originally caught my attention. However, TaylorMade updated the specifications of the Rescue '09, making it a very usable club on the course. One of the main improvements is the inclusion of the Flight Control Technology (FCT). TaylorMade introduced their latest technological breakthrough in several other clubs this season, but this was the first Rescue club to get it. Basically it helps make the club more adjustable and allows you to have better control over the loft and the lie of the ball itself.
I believe that in the end the TaylorMade Rescue '09 is the type of club that will find its way into many golf bags around the world. It took several years (and several generations of clubs) for TaylorMade to finally find a successful successor for the older models. The TaylorMade Rescue 09' Hybrid is going to become a very popular club around the world once it begins to gain some momentum in the court of public opinion.
