Meet The GAPR
Engineered to fill distance gaps in your long game
Taylormade Golf, the creators of the original Rescue line of hybrids in 1999, debuts GAPR a highly innovative trio of products with unique identities and performance deliverables providing golfers with the right clubs to fill gaps in the long game.
Nearly every golfer has a gapping challenge between the longest playable iron and the shortest metalwood. With a majority of players not comfortable hitting 3, 4 and even 5 irons consistently to precise yardages or with any dependable accuracy, and 5, 7 and 9 woods often difficult to control, Taylormade set out to engineer a line of products that allow golfers to get the distance, carry and control needed to fill these gaps. The result is GAPR, three distinct products that will invite golfers to choose their shape, find their distance and bridge their gap.
In each of the 3 different GAPR models, engineers have incorporated Taylormade's innovative Speedfoam technology, which was first introduced in the P790 irons. Speedfoam serves the dual purpose of generating ball speed while also dampening vibrations to create optimal sound and feel. Injected into the club head in liquid form before expanding within the club, it provides increased face support while maintaining the soft, solid sound and feel preferred by golfers. Additionally, strategically-placed ultra-low centre of gravity in each GAPR model creates a hotter, higher launch for more distance and improved playability.
Designed primarily for players with faster ball speeds, it is the smallest of the three models and features a lowforward CG for extreme distance with a mid-to-low trajectory. It's driving irontype shape allows for excellent flighting and workability, and the mid-thin sole width delivers maximum performance and versatility for the stronger player.
Slightly larger in size than the GAPR LO, GAPR MID was designed with players of all skill levels in mind. Featuring a CG that is ultra-low and forward for maximum distance and a mid-high trajectory, it has an iron face profile that inspires confidence, easy alignment and a medium-wide sole width for ease of play and versatility.
Engineered for the widest range of players, it is the largest of the three models. GAPR HI features an ultra-low/ back CG for maximum distance and a high, penetrating trajectory. Where the HI differs from the other 2 models is its shaping, which features modern Rescue shaping with a high-toe, peanut shaped clubhead. The dropped crown feature provides lower CG and improved alignment.
Each GAPR comes equipped with a KBS Hybrid shaft in either an 80/x, 80/s, 70/r or 60/a profile (via custom) and a Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grip. Additional shaft options are available through Taylormade's custom program as well.
