DORAL, Fla. - The green 17 on Darren Clarke's visor may look like a tribute to St. Patrick's Day, but a love of Ireland and Guinness beer has nothing to do with the number. Along with other TaylorMade staff players at this week's WGC-Cadillac Championship, Clarke is sporting headwear with the 17 on it as part of a promotion for TaylorMade's new RocketBallz fairway woods.
The company says that the RocketBallz 3-wood is 17 yards longer than last season's Burner SuperFast 2.0 3-wood.
But this weekend TaylorMade plans to expand the promotion by having several players who wear Adidas apparel -- such as Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia -- wear polo jerseys with the player's name and a 17 on the back.
