TaylorMade "Bunny Slope" Clubs In The Works?
By Torleif Sorenson on 5/29/13
TaylorMade Executive VP Sean Toulon has told golf blogger Steve Pike that, within the next 18 months, TaylorMade-adidas Golf will introduce a line of what Toulon calls "bunny slope" clubs, either under the TaylorMade or Adams Golf brands.
Pike notes that neither Toulon or TMaG CEO Mark King has reacted favorable to the USGA's ban on anchored putting, but did not elaborate on whether Toulon's idea is in response to the USGA's decision. Pike's post seems to hint that the clubs will be designed and adapted to absolute beginning players and feature some non-conforming design elements intended to make the game easier for the absolute neophyte.
And whether or not the design(s) will include a curved grip similar to the old (and patently illegal) BioCurve clubs (at right) is obviously yet to be determined, but if the clubs make it into production, we are sure to be pretty interested.

The bunny slope is a useful feature of a ski area,
because beginning skiers attempting to negotiate intermediate or advanced slopes,
put themselves at risk of injury or worse.
Golf is a little bit different.
Agreed, but if the sh*tty golfers in the foursome in front of me shoot a 105 instead of a 125, and play the round 30 minutes faster, I am all for it.
