Meet The GAPR

En­gi­neered to fill dis­tance gaps in your long game

Golf Asia - - CONTENTS -

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.
