SOUTHPORT, ENGLAND -- If any of Greg Norman's clubs don't meet with his approval, he's got no one to blame but himself. After all, he's the chairman of the board of MacGregor Golf.
In a recent interview with GOLF Magazine's Josh Sanburn, Norman said, "I've played the company's irons since 1978. I believe in the product and the brand recognition on a global basis. I consider MacGregor's R&D to be second to none. And, I see a lot of parallels between MacGregor today and when I was with Cobra."
According to MacGregor's Jamie Bosworth, Norman is the only player endorsing the equipment of the company, which is based in Albany, Ga.
Norman is using the MacGregor MT driver (9.5°) and a Callaway Steelhead 3-wood. Bosworth says that Norman got his prototype MacGregor VIP irons only two weeks ago. They feature a diamond-shaped muscle-back design and should be available to the public soon.
Norman is using MacGregor MT Pro Don White wedges (52°, 57°), a prototype MacGregor DCT putter and TaylorMade's TP Red ball. The putter has a special insert that
returns more energy into the ball on off-center hits to optimize
distance control, similar to the insert used in the MacGregor Face-Off putter.
