More club updates on the way from TaylorMade are the Rescue 2009 and Rescue TP hybrids. The key difference between the two is the standard Rescue does not come with Flight Control Technology; the Rescue TP does have the FCT system for adjusting face angle, loft and lie angle.

Compared to the company's original Rescue Mid, the Rescue 2009 has about the same sized head, but with an ultra-thin crown, more weight in the sole, and a lower and deeper center of gravity. The new Rescue also has a redesigned sole, one that produces less contact with the turf because of recessed areas at the toe and heel.

The standard TaylorMade Rescue 2009 uses an Aldila RE*AX 65-gram graphite shaft, and will be offered in 2, 3, 4 and 5 right-handed and 3, 4 and 5 left-handed. It will have an MSRP of $199 per club.

The Rescue TP, with Flight Control Technology, will be available in 2, 3 and 4 right-handed and 2, 3, and 4 left-handed. Its stock shaft is the Aldila Voodoo VS8 graphite. The MSRP for the TP version will be $249 per club.

Both hybrids become available on May 1, 2009.
