Dustin Johnson & Dean Burmester Both Win in Emphatic Style to Secure NINE Victories in Eight Weeks for the TaylorMade M FaMily

World #1 Johnson adds 4th WGC title in first start as Burmester clinched European Tour playing rights with maiden tour win

Basingstoke, Hants (6th March, 2017) - A thrilling weekend of golf saw the TaylorMade M FaMily rein victorious on both the PGA and European Tour's.

After recently adding the '17 M1 driver and TP5x golf ball to his bag, it was DJ's '17 M1 3HL fairway that he first put in the bag at Riviera that was key for him at Club de Golf Chapultepec's high altitude.

DJ's fairway is cut to a 5 wood length (1" shorter than standard) and set to 16* of loft. Dustin carries it 280 yards, which is the exact number he's looking for.

DJ's wedge setup often changes week to week depending on the conditions and shots he'll be faced with on the course. So far this year, he's gotten comfortable with a PW, 52* & 60* combination in the Milled Grind wedges, which he added to the bag as soon as the Tour truck had them available.

Similar to World #2 Jason Day, Dustin Johnson plays the Spider Tour Black putter, which he first put into his bag at last year's BMW Championship (he won). DJ prefers its firmer insert to Jason's Spider Tour red model. Also notable with the win, Spider becomes the most winning putter model on tour in the last 9 months, starting with Day's win at THE PLAYERS last year; a truly remarkable feat for the category.

DJ was dressed in full adidas apparel whilst wearing Tour360 BOOST shoes, signaling a 4th win in 2017 for adidas footwear in 2017.

  • TP MB Irons / 3-PW / Dynamic Gold X100

Final Round 65 Seals Win for Burmester

Early on Sunday Dean Burmester won his first European Tour title at the Tshwane Open in South Africa, using the All-New 2017 TaylorMade M1 460 driver and the 2017 M1 3 wood.

Burmester ranked 6th in driving distance having switched to the 2017 M1 driver from the 2016 M2 at the South African Open earlier this year. The switch gave him an extra 10 yards off the tee whilst tightening dispersion in the process. Working with TaylorMade Tour Representative Adrian Rietveld during testing, Burmester saw an improved average carry distance of 336.6 yards with the 2017 M1.

The TaylorMade woods are long and so consistent off the face, giving me such confidence off the tee. A true game changer.
