When we developed SLDR, our easiest-to-adjust driver ever, we didn't expect it to change the rules of distance. Yet it did.
Maximum yardage comes from combining high launch, low spin and fast ball speed. SLDR’s low-and-forward CG promotes fast ball speed and low spin.
To add high launch, you are now able to increase your loft.
Tour pros are “lofting up” and hitting the ball farther. Dustin Johnson, Stewart Cink, Darren Clarke, Carl Pettersson,
Johnson Wagner, Lucas Glover, Scott Verplank, Blake Adams and Justin Leonard are just some who have lofted up for more distance.
That’s why SLDR is currently the #1 driver model on the PGA Tour, and has already amassed 9 worldwide wins since being introduced in July.
Loft up for More Distance – Only from TaylorMade SLDR’s CG location is low-and-forward, a monumental shift in metalwood thinking.
For decades it has been accepted that a low-and-back CG is best. Moving the CG forward promotes faster ball speed and lower spin.
And in order to get the most distance from SLDR, you have to change the way you think about loft.
No longer is playing a driver with 12 degrees of loft something to be ashamed of. In fact, former British Open Champion Stewart Cink is playing a 12 degree SLDR.
While it was admittedly strange to him at first, once he started carrying the ball past his playing competitors, he was sold. Try lofting up yourself to see just how much it will benefit your game. You’ll be blown away.
