A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…
It is a period of booming profits for
droid manufacturer Industrial Automation,
whose R2 line of droids had found commercial
success throughout the galaxy.
Although the earlier line of R1 astromech droids
did not have the same success, it is rumored
that Darth Vader contracted Industrial Automation
to use the R1 droid project as a facade to hide
the development of his ultimate golfing weapon,
the R1 driver, an adjustable loft driver with
enough power to destroy an entire planet.
Rebels managed to steal plans for the R1,
entrusting them to TaylorMade Golf, who fled,
through space and time, to a planet called Earth.
By selling the weapon to all golfers there,
a de facto pact of mutually assured destruction emerged,
preventing Vader from utilizing the weapon and thus
saving Earth’s people and restoring freedom to the galaxy…
