Here Ya Go Taylormade Fans!
We apologize to those of you that came to the site previously to see the TM R11 pictures and were not able to view them. The photos that were sent to us were claimed to be copyrighted images from TM (even though I still don't think we have seen any documentation stating that as fact) that got leaked out. And after many phone calls and emails back and forth with the TM's lawyers we decided to remove the images from our site for the first time. The images appeared on our site and many other sites and built a tremendous amount of buzz for their product. But TM decided instead of getting the word out about their club they would rather spend their time and money having their lawyers contact all these sites and try and force them to take them down. To each their own. They did seem to spend a lot of time and energy trying to keep these secret...just about anyone and everyone that came in contact with this club I was told had to sign an NDA saying they would not release info or photos of the head. So I guess I understand..kidding I don't understand at all. When is the golf industry going to learn? The automobile industry has been doing this for decades...ever heard of the Detroit Auto Show? They have been showing consumers concept cars and amazing images of prototype vehicles way before they get released...it gets the consumer excited about the chance of getting to drive one when they finally release that car some 2-3 years later.
Pretty interesting how this business works...I wish you guys could be a fly on the wall in my office...one of these days I will write an article about it all. I think you would be utterly shocked. Anyways we got in this to help the consumer and beleive it or not the industry to...we thought it would be great for both sides...by providing a service that we felt was needed...no fluff no bs material...and also to try and help bring this industry up to speed with many of the other industries you see that have embraced the Web 2.o and social media atmosphere. But unlike the tech and auto industries golf companies still seem to refuse to see the value. Actually I take that back...almost 100% of the heads of marketing I speak to from the major golf OEM's think or at least they tell us they think it's a great idea what we are doing...just seems their bosses are still a little behind the times. Oh well...we are still going to continue doing what we do and maybe one day they will start to turn the corner. Anyway we want to thank those companies that we deal with that do embrace what we are trying to do and to those that don't...well...I will leave it at that for now.
Oh yeah here are some new pictures of the Taylormade R11 sent in by a reader...thanks!
