TaylorMade have recently announced the release of a new set of Rory McIlroy inspired junior clubs. Featuring both a 4-plus and 8-plus set, for players 4 and above and 8 and above respectively, the set features ‘RORY’ stamping for fans. The 4-Plus set has five clubs, while the 8-Plus has two additional irons.
Rory had this to say about the new venture:
“Growing up, golf was an extremely important part of my life. It allowed me to stay active, enjoy the outdoors and have fun within a competitive sport. I partnered with TaylorMade to design the Rory Junior Set to give kids an easy introduction to golf so they can have the same opportunity I had to fall in love with the sport.”
At age 5 I got my first real set of clubs, and that’s when my passion for the game started. Excited to announce I’ve teamed up with @taylormadegolf to create the perfect starter set for young golfers so they can build their passion for the game at an early age like I did! pic.twitter.com/wEpQhuj18c
