TaylorMade Golf Company brought “Distance for All” to Olney Golf Park on Saturday, when it hosted a special clubfitting and golf instructional session for Salute Military Golf Association (SMGA) members.
In a unique clinic led by TaylorMade ambassador and renowned instructor Mike Malaska – ranked one of America’s 50 Greatest Golf Teachers and the 2011 PGA Teacher of the Year – more than 60 combat-wounded and injured veterans partook in driver fittings and an irons and short game clinic, each going home with their own custom-fit SLDR S driver. Following the event, SMGA was presented with a surprise check donation to assist with its services in helping veterans rehabilitate through golf.
The TaylorMade Tour Truck – the same million-dollar truck that travels to each PGA Tour event and fits TaylorMade Golf Tour Staff Professionals, was also be on-site, giving tours to participants – an opportunity normally reserved for Tour players.
Headquartered in the Washington, DC area, the SMGA’s mission is to provide rehabilitative golf experiences and family inclusive golf opportunities for post 9/11 wounded war veterans in an effort to improve the quality of life for these American heroes. TaylorMade’s new SLDR S driver provides “Distance for All” in four loft options and utilizes low and forward CG with higher loft options and lower ball spin to generate increased distance.
