Twenty feet tall and fourteen feet wide when parked and expanded fully, the truck is thought to have cost $1.6m to build.

Until now, the development of the tour truck has been a closely guarded secret but Abeles is looking forward to introducing it to TaylorMade’s tour staff at Augusta National.

He added: “The word is out on tour that we have something special coming, and I’m certain that many of the guys, once they see it, will spend quite a bit of time on the truck.”
