Taylormade Burner Rescue
The Burner Rescue comes in two versions: High Launch and Tour Launch. The High Launch has a slight draw bias and has a shallow clubface that promotes more spin; the Tour Launch has a slight fade bias and is engineered to promote a lower, more controllable trajectory. Both are triangular and utilize a dual crown to lower the CG.
Lofts: 17°, 19°, 22°, 25°, 28° (High Launch); 18°, 20°, 23° (Tour Launch)

Taylormade Rescue
The all-new Rescue club indicates that TaylorMade went back to its roots and designed a hybrid that’s extremely easy to hit. Gone are the adjustable weights; instead the Rescue has a compact shape, a lowered CG and a low-friction sole that helps the club slide through the grass. The TP version (shown), has FCT Tech so you can
orient the clubface angle and so forth.
Lofts: 17°, 19°, 22°, 25°

Titleist 909H
Designed with “flow” technology and a Carpenter steel face, the 909H hybrids are progressively designed with CGs optimized for the different lofts and lengths available. Resembling a fairway wood more than an iron, the 909H is the most playable hybrid from Titleist to date, thanks to a lowered CG and either an MR Diamana Blue or Aldila VooDoo graphite shaft.
Lofts: 15°, 17°, 19°, 21°, 24°
