TaylorMade SLDR S metalwoods

2014 05 Sldr S Driver 3 4 32



TaylorMade has unveiled its new SLDR S range aimed at providing distance for golfers of all abilities and swing speeds through high-lofted metalwoods.


Featuring TaylorMade’s renowned low forward centre of gravity placement, it promotes faster ball speeds, a higher launch angle and a lower spin rate to ultimately give more distance.

The driver will be available in 10°, 12°, 14° and 16° options with the satin silver crown paired with a black-button back to deliver confidence-inspiring aesthetics. The range also includes fairway woods and Rescue clubs.

“It’s no secret that high launch and low spin maximise driver distance, but some players think that only tour pros can benefit from lofting up with low forward centre of gravity,” said Benoit Vincent, TaylorMade’s chief technical officer. “This is simply not true. By lofting up, you can generate serious distance regardless of swing speed with SLDR S, which has low and forward centre of gravity properties, along with a sliding weight that assists shot shape.”

The TaylorMade SLDR S fairway woods and Rescues have a larger footprint and shallower faces compared to the SLDR and have been shaped to be more playable for golfers of all swing speeds and abilities.

Each club in the SLDR S line-up is bonded, meaning adjustability isn’t an option, however you can still enjoy a plethora of loft options as the driver is available in four high-lofted models, with five available options for fairway woods and an additional four Rescue lofts.


TaylorMade makes PGA Tour impact


“Historically on the PGA Tour, guys would de-loft their drivers in an attempt to achieve a lower ball flight and gain distance,” said Keith Sbarbaro, TaylorMade Golf’s vice president of tour operations. “But when we introduced low forward centre of gravity, players started to see huge distance leaps from added loft.

“This has been a monumental shift in the way of thinking and a breakthrough in unlocking more distance. With SLDR S, the same dominating distance is available to golfers of all abilities and swing speeds.”
