From around the web and across social media, here are the memorable quotes from the recent month...
Brooke Henderson (@BrookeHenderson) in a tweet on January 20th after making the move to TaylorMade. Henderson then went on to finish runner-up at the LPGA’s most recent tournament, the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions at Lake Nona in Florida. On their website, she talks further about the ball switch, “Right away the TP5x performed at a high level. I gained yardage off the tee, which is huge for me, while I still was able to have the right amount of spin and great feel around the greens. I also noticed that my iron shots were piercing through windy conditions and holding the line very well. It was really eye-opening and I am beyond excited to put the TP5x to play this season.” Visit the TaylorMade Golf website here.
