"It's like a 3-iron that's as easy to hit as a 7-iron." That's Rory McIlroy explaining to Irish Golfer how he ended up adding the TaylorMade SIM Max Rescue to his bag. He's not alone. The brand's Tour Operations manager Wade Liles packed 20 heads on the truck for the Farmers Insurance Open. As of Tuesday, only one remained. The trick is in the aerodynamic design, which incorporates a V-Steel sole, a Twist Face made from high-strength C300 steel, and a speed pocket. An asymmetrical topline helps better players avoid the left miss — something the category was notorious for, and a large reason why tour pros have avoided it — while also making alignment easier for average players. Available in 19º, 22º, 25º, 28º, and 31º variants.
