Six new players added to TaylorMade’s roster

TaylorMade has joined the gold rush and signed a bagful of golfers ahead of its 2017 season, closing the roster gap created by recent big-name signings by Nike, Titleist, Cobra Puma and Callaway.

TaylorMade announced on Thursday that six new players are being added to its stable, and will play with the brand’s metalwoods this season.

Paul Casey, Nick Watney, Smylie Kaufman, Seung-Yul Noh, Kyle Stanley and Jon Curran will be hitting the greens with their bags full of the newest TaylorMade equipment, making this season one of the most competitive ever among golf brands.

The influx of fresh talent joins a group of Tour pros that includes World No. 1 Jason Day, reigning U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson, Olympic gold medalist Justin Rose and nine-time Tour winner Sergio Garcia.

Kaufman and Casey are the biggest acquisitions, of course, with Kaufman starting his rookie season with a breakthrough victory at the 2015 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, and later adding four top-10 finishes. He began playing the M2 driver at The Barclays last year.

Casey has 16 professional wins and three Ryder Cup appearances under his belt, and added the M2 driver to his bag late in 2016--tweeting earlier in the week that he'll be using the 2017 M1 driver and 2016 M1 3-wood in competition this week at the Sony Open.
