TaylorMade R9 Driver

Have it your way…
is the beginning of the jingle for a fast food chain and it also describes the new TaylorMade R 9 driver. TaylorMade drivers are the most used driver on tour and its first week of introduction on the PGA Tour was a winner.

I have had the opportunity to product test this driver approximately a month and with all the changes that you can make yourself, I found the right combination for me. This really is the first time you can buy your own driver at a pro shop or golf retail store and make the adjustments yourself to fit the club to your game.

The driver has 8 powerful head positions – you can adjust the lie, loft and face angle. It has three movable weights that you can change to get the ball flight you want. This gives you 24 different combinations to maximize your distance. These combinations can give you up to 75 yards of left to right ball flight to help give you that extra distance we all desire.

I strongly recommend you test-drive the new R9.
