TaylorMade Golf – World Nº2 Nelly Korda signs to play Stealth 2 HD driver and TP5 golf ball
January 17, 2023 – TaylorMade Golf and World No.2 on the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings Nelly Korda have agreed to a multi-year partnership beginning at this week’s Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions at Lake Nona.
The eight-time winner on the LPGA Tour, major champion and Olympic Gold Medalist will play a full bag of TaylorMade equipment and TP5 golf ball.
“The captivating talent and unparalleled drive to win Nelly possesses makes us proud to have her join our Team TaylorMade family. Nelly sets a standard of excellence that we are motivated to match by putting the highest performing equipment possible in her hands each week she competes. We are looking forward to working with Nelly towards accomplishing her goal of more major championships and victories on the LPGA Tour in the years to come,” says David Abeles, TaylorMade Golf President & CEO.
With testing still ongoing, at Lake Nona this week Korda’s TaylorMade staff bag will feature:
- Driver: TaylorMade Stealth 2 HD (9.0°)
- Fairway Woods: TaylorMade Stealth 2 3-wood (15.0°); TaylorMade Stealth 2 7-wood (21.0°)
- Irons: TaylorMade P·770 (5-6 irons); TaylorMade P·7MC (7-PW)
- Wedges: TaylorMade Milled Grind 3 (50°, 54°)
- Golf Ball: TaylorMade TP5
“I signed with TaylorMade because of their proven ability to elevate the game of the best golfers in the world. In testing with the TaylorMade Tour Team, it was clear that not only was I working with high performing equipment, but also a team that shared my passion for working as hard as possible to be in the best position to win. I’m thrilled to be a part of Team TaylorMade,” says Nelly Korda.
Korda’s consistent delivery and desired draw shot shape made the Stealth 2 HD driver a perfect pair as she noted liking the look and feel of the draw bias head. In her irons, the 2023 P·770’s gave Korda added height to be able to hold greens from the 180-yard range, while in shorter irons the 2023 P·7MC’s provide the dispersion and distance control she was looking for.
After testing the TP5x and TP5 golf balls, Korda decided on TP5 as she was able to maintain a desired trajectory with softer feel and more spin around the greens.
