“Taylor Made has a rich and deep history of cutting-edge innovation, quality and an amazing set of products,” Hider said in a statement. “Dennis Flint and the senior team have done a terrific job positioning the company to grow and provide solutions to our customers. I look forward to helping as we shape the organization for the future.”
