The TaylorMade R15 Black Rescue is one of those “once in a lifetime” hybrid golf clubs, featuring a brand-new tour inspired shape and the consequence of this clever design is a great amount of playability and versatility on the golf course. This baby delivers, and that’s basically all there is to it; you can use the R15 Black Rescue from the tee or from the fairway with excellent results and I can vouch that this baby is perfectly able to replace each and every long iron that you have in your golf bag. The R15 Black Rescue is built to promote a neutral ball flight and comes with an adjustable hosel which features a three degrees loft sleeve. This allows you to better dial in your distance, making this golf club a true gem in terms of versatility on any kind of turf. Playing in the category of “better player hybrids”, the R15 Black rescue comes with a Fujikura Speeder 77 Evolution graphite shaft and a specially designed speed pocket along the club’s sole which plays a big role in maintaining ball velocity on low contact.
I just love the highly-controllable trajectory this club offers you, even in not so favorable conditions, i.e. when you have to shoot the ball out of deep grass. If you’re skilled enough, you’ll be able to hit the ball with the R15 Black Rescue high and stop it precisely where you desire, or keep it low and run one up (to cheat the wind). This baby is able to do absolutely anything, provided you know what you’re doing, mostly due to its loft adjustability thingy. This golf club has deadly accuracy both off the tee or at the green and its forgiveness makes misses a rare occurrence. Some of the club’s greatest features are distance, accuracy, consistency and feel/feedback. The R15 Black Rescue retails for $220 and it’s basically a strong and attractive hybrid golf club that can manage any shot you’re throwing at it, sort of speak.
