The TaylorMade Rescue Club comes in a range from 2 wood to 6 wood, with a degree from 17 to 28. Steel and graphite shafts are available, the latter with three options: senior, regular or stiff flex, which is a TaylorMade RE*AX SuperFast 60 shaft by Fujikura. The club is engineered to play to a slight draw to help prevent a slice. The more shallow face height gives the club a mid to high launch as well as more spin, which gives the ball more carry. Suggested retail price is $175 to $219.
This club is perfect for any shot from 180 yards to 220 yards, mostly being used on par 5s or a lay-up tee shot on a par 4. Like most clubs in the Burner family, its face and head are good at creating a trajectory that's good against a headwind and a bit more distance. The slight draw feature comes in handy on dogleg lefts, and the high spins also will play on approach shots near greens.
Though the stainless steel face helps with draw and distance, it is small compared with most woods or other rescue clubs. Sometimes it's difficult to get all of the ball, especially for players with high handicaps. The club can get a golfer down a long fairway, but the medium address area can be difficult to control on fairway shots.
This is the perfect club to replace a lot of higher irons, even hybrids. When it comes to rescue, it's about shots that require distance, and this Burner line gives more distance and control--even helping an average golfer draw his ball.
