Don't Mess With Rocketballz
When TaylorMade came out with the Rocketballz campaign, they promised the world that you'd gain 17 yards over your old three woods. It seems silly that they'd pick such a number, but after research from the company, they were confident with their claim, and even went with "Rocketballz" as the club name because they knew golf balls "rocketed" off the clubhead.
A fellow blogger over at MyGolf Spy thought it was ridiculous, and said so, telling the world if he gained that much distance with the club he'd shave a green "T" in the back of his head in honor of the company.
TaylorMade took the man up on his challenge, flew him from New York to Southern California, and after he 40+ yards with the new club, went to working on his 'do. The results are above, and one below. I sure hope they gave him a free cap for his flight home.
