The number 17 made an appearance at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, especially on the hat of winner Justin Rose. The TaylorMade marketing team created “17” hats and jerseys for their staffers to reflect the number of yards its new RocketBallz fairway wood travels beyond last year’s Burner.
Justin Rose, who won the event in a “17” hat, played a new 15-degree RocketBallz fairway wood for the week.
15 degees – 16 under – 17 yards longer – won on the 18th (He did not have to go to a play off)
