The TaylorMade Rescue 2009 builds on the impact made by the introduction of the original Rescue Mid club.
The Rescue 2009 features a compact clubhead and a redesigned sole to make playing shots from both the fairway and the rough much easier while the centre of gravity has been lowered to increase both forgiveness and workability.
As fans of the original Rescue Mid we were certainly keen to try the Rescue 2009 and we were not disappointed. The face of the club has been squared off slightly but it retains a confidence building traditional look at address.
We found it very forgiving on mishits while also delivering excellent distance and a consistent ball flight and it was very versatile from all parts of the course.
Providing a high level of workability as well as added length and forgiveness the TaylorMade Rescue 2009 is certainly a worthy successor to the Rescue Mid and will appeal to golfers of all abilities.
The Rescue 2009 is also available in a TP version that comes with a very impressive Aldila Voodoo shaft that make an already very impressive club even better and we would certainly not hesitate to pay the slightly higher price tag that the TP version carries.
Forgiving and with excellent ball flight the Rescue 2009 is a fine addition to your bag.
