OUR TAKE: TaylorMade’s original SIM Max Rescues of 2020 took the professional game by storm, finding their way into the bags of top golfers such as Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson – players who hadn’t used hybrids throughout most of their prior careers. Like those previous rescues, the new SIM2 Rescues continue to prove their value to better players by eliminating the left miss that deters some golfers from using hybrids. “I love the flight because I don’t have to worry about missing it left,” one of our testers said. “The small profile is a great look, too.”THE DETAILS: McIlroy and Johnson, both newfound hybrid users in 2020, helped provide insights for the new compact SIM2 Rescue designs of 2021. With their help, TaylorMade engineered a new leading edge and sole geometry, and used weight to implement more forgiveness without sacrificing iron-like workability. Given the success of SIM Max Rescue’s success of last year, TaylorMade has also expanded the SIM2 hybrid lineup, which now includes a SIM2 Rescue and a SIM2 Max Rescue.
