Sabbatini w/ TaylorMade...?


Recommended Posts

If I'm not mistaken he's been playing Callaway for the better part of this season now, and I was watching online coverage of the WGC @ Doral today. He was rocking the TaylorMade hat.....can it be the R9 is that good? Never been a TM driver/fairway wood fan for some reason, but am willing to make the switch once I demo it and see how it is. Didn't know if anyone else caught him today.

I don't think it's the R9. I think it's that Rory sucks and needs endorsement money, and Taylormade would sign a newborn baby if they coould.

the guy likes GI stiff --------- will he be the first to play the new Burner irons on tour?

 

If TM really wants to sponser someone -------- I'm available and I'm cheap, just give me new clubs 2-3X a year and I will tell everyone how great they are.

Yes, he signed with TMAG on Tuesday. Not sure of the extent of the contract though.

Maybe those R-9 woods are really THAT good. I thought he was playing decent and should just settle in and play with the mixed set he had. FWIW does anyone know what irons and wedges he went with?

What kind of deal did he sign. I assumed he signed some kinda deal with Nerf to use the bag with the Nerf name. I know most TM/Addias guys use a TM or Addias bag..

He wasn't ever (contractually) with Callaway. Adams terminated his contract earlier this year (reportedly because Sabbatini wore a Callaway hat at an event, but I'm guessing that is just the tip of the iceberg.)

 

Sabbatini started negotiating with Callaway andusing their clubs, but never signed. At Doral this week, Sabbatini began testing out some TM clubs and signed with them on Tuesday.

Yea the reason I started this topic is because I couldn't figure out how someone can go through through 3 companies clubs during a short period of time...?!?! Especially at the beginning of the season...that's ridiculous!

I think that TM and Rory are a great fit. He doesn't like blades, they don't really like blades. He likes to switch drivers, no one is going to like that more than TM. And as far as his ability, he's won on tour before and come close a handful of other times. He has a ton of game. He has a quite eccentric personality. Some hate him for that. I do not.

Yeah, Ratboy sabbatini is a non topic golfer, unless someone is going to rip him to pieces... never even seen a "Sab the Savage" thread. But we are all making fun, and he has our dream job, so the joke is on us.

 

Not to mention his level of play is what we ALL hope to reach some day.

 

I can't stand him either.... Just for the record.

him signing w/ TMAG doesn't mean squat about the R9 or any TM equipment. It's all about the Benjamin$. he's not a sought after golfer who has the choice to sign with anybody. He probably went were the $ was, and it's no surpise that it was TMAG.

You're on a site for club junkies and you can't figure out how a guy can go through 3 club companies in 3 months?

He's a great pick up for any company. Most folks crucify him for "fast walking" Ben Crane. Granted it may have been wrong but he apologiged personally to Ben the next day as well as in the media. Yet the same people that crucify him are the ones that stand on the fairway behind a slow player, b**** and moan and then hit into them. As far as playing GI irons, maybe the pundits on this site should take a lessson from the pro. I'm confident he can kick any "blade-slinger's" butt here. He's ranked in the top 40 players in the world despite a tough year trying to find Adams equipment that he was comfortable with. To both his and Adams' credit, the split was amicable with Rory leaving a lot of $ on the table. People will say what they may but he is one of the most charitable guys on the PGA tour. In fact his favorte charity is supporting Iraq veteran's families here in the U.S. and he is not even an American citizen. He is however a true Patriot!

Actually, he went to the TMAG tour van on Monday and Tuesday at Doral, had them make him some clubs, spent some time on the range, liked them so much (particularly the R9), the he told his agent to get it done.

 

And for the record, I am a fan of neither Sabbatini or TMAG. But I don't believe it criticizing unless critisism is justified.
