Was reading www.pagtour.com and found the two article interesting.
First one, was a PGA tour player (non-TM staffer) went out and bought TWO RETAIL TM Superfast drivers from a local retail shop because the tour van ran out of heads. http://www.pgatour.com/2010/r/05/03/equipment-insider/index.html
"TRUCKIN': There has been so much player demand for TaylorMade's SuperFast driver that the company's tour truck actually ran out of heads. One player (who isn't a TM staffer and therefore can't be named) wanted one so bad that he went to a local golf retail store, bought two (needed a backup, we guess), and brought them back to the TaylorMade truck to be reshafted...

Second, was Tiger refuting an eBay auction of his irons and only EIGHT months to wear down a set of irons!! http://livereport.pgatour.com/2010/05/04/tiger-refutes-ebay-auction/
"Tiger refutes eBay auction
The set of irons that were listed on eBay with a claim to have been used by Tiger Woods during his 2000-01 “Tiger Slam” are apparently not, according to Woods, who addressed the report in Tuesday’s press conference.
Woods goes through a set of irons about every eight months, he said, because they get worn down. Meanwhile, the listing was removed on Monday. — Brian Wacker"
