Las Vegas, Nevada (January 23, 2012)–Las Vegas golfers won't have to wait much longer for the latest and greatest from TaylorMade Golf. The launch of the 2012 golf club equipment products is February 3, and the two Las Vegas Golf and Tennis locations will be a part of the promotions. The R11S is the extension of the wildly successful R11 "white collection" in 2011, and the RocketBallz woods will share center stage with the R11S series. –By Brian Hurlburt
TaylorMade executives are billing the new R11S as the "most adjustable driver in golf", allowing golfers seemingly unlimited ability to hone in the club to their specific specs. “The R11S is a golfer’s dream come true; it’s the realization of every ounce of innovation, adjustability, and performance we could package in a bigger, more aerodynamic, white clubhead,” said Sean Toulon, executive vice president, in a recent statement. “It would have been easy for our product creation team to rest on the laurels of the original R11™ driver, the most successful product we’ve ever created. Instead, we’re delivering golfers yet another significant advancement in adjustability and performance. And, with the proper fitting, we know golfers of all skill levels will be longer and straighter off the tee.”
There are two conveniently located Las Vegas Golf and Tennis locations in the Las Vegas Golf Region. And visiting and local Las Vegas golfers flock to the locations. The newest store is a also a TaylorMade SuperStore and is located minutes from the Las Vegas Strip at Dean Martin and Tropicana. While the other location is just of the I-215 freeway at Green Valley Parkway and across the street from the Green Valley Ranch Resort.

One of the most informative articles we have found about all of the latest innovation from TaylorMade comes from respected Golfweek Editor James Achenbach. "TaylorMade is about to introduce a line of drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons called RocketBallz. These clubs will not be available at retail until Feb. 3, but retailers expect word of mouth to create interest before that date. The creation of RocketBallz will give TaylorMade three distinct lines of clubs – R11 (which becomes R11S for 2012), RocketBallz and Burner. For the upcoming year, Burner will be positioned as TaylorMade’s value line ($199 driver), and RocketBallz will share centerstage with R11S."

According to Achenbach, the name of the new Rocketballz series is somewhat attributed to Dustin Johnson, who works with Las Vegas Golf Region resident Butch Harmon. Johnson, early in the testing, said "It's like a rocket" after hitting the new golf club. The Butch Harmon School of Golf is located at Rio Secco Golf Club, a Las Vegas resort course designed by Rees Jones. Both the School and Rio Secco are open to the public with reservations.
