VIDEO: Justin Rose and Darren Clarke Among Stars to Take On TaylorMade’s R15 Build a Club Challenge

Justin Rose, Darren Clarke and Edoardo Molinari were just some of golf’s best to take on TaylorMade’s new R15 Build a Club challenge.

Tasked with building their own driver as fast as they can, some stars proved they don’t need any fitting reps while others proved it’s just as well they’ve got someone else to do it for them.

The R15 metalwood line takes learnings from TaylorMade’s ‘R’ franchise, using breakthrough technologies to produce a driver finely-tuned to their needs.

So distance, accuracy and workability shouldn’t be a problem for these European Tour players – once they build it of course.

So the challenge was simple, see how long it takes to run to the R15 driver, attach the head correctly and hit the ball.

But who came out on top?

The plaudits go to Englishman Robert Rock for managing it in just 25 seconds, while Clarke and Rose took 32 and 42 seconds respectively.

The funniest moment was reserved for Molinari as the Italian managed just 29 seconds, but hit his ball no further than five yards away at the end.
