Over the past couple of days, TaylorMade has been setting up in iconic locations like Times Square in New York and Canary Wharf in London to stage what it calls its Speed Pocket World Challenge (lots of photos on Twitter). At these events, everyday golfers have the chance to hit TaylorMade's new SpeedBlade irons on pop-up driving ranges. Golfers of all sizes and shapes have been turning out in huge numbers, and the events have been quite spectacular. Amid all the fun, Hank Haney offered lessons in New York, LPGA Tour star Anna Nordqvist hit some shots in San Francisco and European Ryder Cup Captain Paul McGinley took some swings in London. But, it's safe to say, no one stood out like the caped and cowled duffer who dropped by Times Square to check out some new putters. No word on whether TaylorMade activated the Bat Signal there in Gotham City or Batman ditched Robin and Commissioner Gordon and showed up on his own.
