Taylor Made Rescue Dual Golf Club Review

By Jim Hagerty


Currently out of production, the Taylor Made Dual rescue line of fairway woods is still available from select retailers and used dealers and is as popular as the company's new lines. The line contains a 3-, 4- and 5-wood, stainless steel construction, T-shaped sole and removable sole weights. Together, these features help reduce drag through impact and modify launch patterns. The line is stocked with tip-stiff Mitsubishi Diamana Hybrid graphite shafts and signature Taylor Made grips.


The Dual has the look and feel of a true fairway wood. Its low center of gravity, shallow face and T-shaped sole make setup comfortable through impact, producing low, penetrating shots. The 3-wood (19 degrees of loft) is especially impressive. The tip-stiff design makes working the ball significantly easy, especially long, sweeping draws. All three woods pick the ball out of rough nicely.


The Rescue Dual is significantly light in the drawback department. The only flaw comes in getting used to the sole weights. Some players might feel the need to really jump on the ball from the fairway, which can produce nasty hooks. Adjusting the weights and letting the sole and tip-stiff shaft do the work will alleviate the problem. The two-tone color of the crown is also a bit distracting at first glance.

Bottom Line

The Rescue Dual is a very comfortable club that can be used as a fairway wood and rescue club. Both 3-and 4-wood options are strong performers for the novice and advanced players. Still available in the $100 to $170 range, they are a suitable addition to any golf bag.
