TaylorMade-adidas Golf Company announced that Jim Furyk, currently ranked No. 6 in the Official World Golf Rankings and 2010 PGA Tour Player of the Year, will play a TaylorMade driver, Penta TP golf ball and wear adidas Golf footwear in 2011. "I'm thrilled to be joining TaylorMade-adidas Golf Tour Staff," said Furyk. "From the innovation they continue to bring to golf equipment to the passion and expertise of their tour reps, it's no secret that TaylorMade-adidas Golf is committed to helping their players improve."
Furyk has worn adidas Golf footwear since 2006, however, he'll be playing the TaylorMade Penta TP for the first time starting today along with a TaylorMade driver at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. "In all the years that I have been working with Tour players, Jim is one of the most technical guys I have ever encountered," said Dean Snell, TaylorMade's senior director of research and development for golf ball. "He quickly grasped the concept and benefits of Penta TP's five-layer construction. In his testing, he found that his long-irons stayed in the air longer to give him increased carry and distance, as opposed to 'falling out of the sky' too soon. He also found that he could fully control and manipulate the spin on his wedge shots inside 100 yards, which he feels will help him win in 2011."
