TaylorMade Golf and Burner Driver Shine at Season-Opening Mercedes-Benz Championship

Daniel Chopra Wins using Burner Driver; TaylorMade the Event's No. 1 Driver

CARLSBAD, Calif. (January 7, 2008) – TaylorMade® started the 2008 PGA Tour season strong by ranking No. 1 in drivers, fairway woods and irons at the Mercedes-Benz Championship*, and by being the driver choice of tournament winner Daniel Chopra.

Chopra, who fired a final-round 66 to force a sudden-death playoff, used the TaylorMade Burner® driver. It was the 11th worldwide victory for Burner, which was the best-selling driver in the United States in 2007.** Featuring a specially engineered bullet-shaped clubhead, Burner is engineered to promote increased distance through faster swing speed, faster ball speed and a high, strong and penetrating ball flight.

Ranking as the No. 1 driver and being in the winner’s bag at the Mercedes-Benz allowed TaylorMade to pick up right where it left off in 2007, when TaylorMade drivers ranked No. 1 at all 47 PGA Tour events, and when TaylorMade drivers were used to win 53 titles on six tours worldwide.
