Inside the Taylormade Tour Truck: A Closer Look at the Workshop

The Impressive Taylormade Tour Truck

Today, we take a special tour inside the taylormade tour truck, located at the AF Golf Store in Cambridge for our recent fitting event. This impressive truck serves as a traveling workshop for the Taylormade players on the European tour as well as servicing at the Open. In this blog, we will explore the fascinating machinery and processes that go on inside this truck. From club fittings to customisations, the taylormade tour truck is a hub of activity.

A Tour of the Workshop

As we step inside the tour truck, we are greeted by Lee, an expert from taylormade. The workshop is filled with an array of machinery, designed to cater to the specific needs of professional golfers. Let’s take a closer look at each workstation and learn about the processes involved.

Club Building and Customisation

The first step in club building is selecting the head and shaft. The truck houses a variety of wood heads and shafts, catering to different player preferences. The players have the luxury of cherry-picking the exact loft and shaft they desire. This attention to detail ensures that they achieve optimal performance on the course.

Once the head and shaft are chosen, a dry build is performed. This involves assembling the club without gluing it, allowing the technicians to check the fit and swing weight. Precise measurements are taken to ensure that the swing weight is accurate.

The truck is equipped with cutting machines to trim down shafts and ensure a secure fit. It also features a wood loft and lie machine, which measures the loft, lie, and face angle of drivers and fairway woods.

Putter Customisation

The taylormade tour truck also offers customisation options for putters. Players can choose from different face inserts, each offering a unique feel. This level of customisation allows players to fine-tune their putting game and select the insert that suits their preferences.

Additionally, the truck houses a variety of grips to cater to different player preferences. From softer grips to stiffer, tackier grips, the players can choose the grip that provides optimal comfort and control. The truck even includes the exact putter grip used by DJ, ensuring that every player’s needs are met.

Swing Weight and Customisation

Swing weight plays a crucial role in a player’s performance. The taylormade tour truck offers an extensive selection of weights, allowing players to achieve their desired swing weight. This level of customisation ensures that each player’s clubs are tailored to their specific preferences and playing style.

An Exclusive Experience

The taylormade tour truck is not open to the general public. Only players and their teams, including caddies, managers, and coaches, have access to the truck during tournament weeks. The truck is a hive of activity as clubs are built and adjusted to perfection.

Throughout the truck, players can find personalised items, such as golf balls with their specific markings and headcovers adorned with their logos. These small touches add to the exclusive experience and further enhance the players’ sense of ownership.

The Meeting Room

Located at the back of the truck is a private meeting room. This room provides players with a quiet space to make private phone calls or relax before their tournaments. Soundproofed and equipped with a television, players can catch up on the latest tournament coverage or review highlights from previous weeks.

A Hub of Activity

The taylormade tour truck is a fascinating glimpse into the world of professional golf. From meticulous club fittings to detailed customisations, every aspect of the players’ needs is catered to. The level of precision and attention to detail is a testament to the dedication of taylormade and their commitment to providing the best equipment for the world’s top golfers.
