TaylorMade SLDR Mini Driver
TaylorMade SLDR Mini Driver: Finally, a 3-wood Designed for the Tee
TaylorMade created a new golf club that incorporates their cutting edge metalwood technology, including the distance-enhancing Speed Pocket, and sized it between a 3-wood and 460cc driver. Itís incredibly accurate and longer off the tee than a 3-wood. At 260cc, the SLDR Mini Driverís footprint is larger, and face deeper, than a 160cc 3-wood. That gives you more stability and forgiveness on mis-hits and allows you to tee the ball higher, which makes the it easier to launch off the tee than a 3-wood. The SLDR Mini Driver has a low-forward CG like the rest of TaylorMadeís SLDR metalwoods, and a Speed Pocket too, which promotes more ball speed and less spin to give you more distance when you loft up.
In addition, the SLDR Mini Driverís relatively short shaft (43.5" compared to 45.5" for the average driver) gives you the added clubhead control necessary to help you hit the ball straighter. Thereís more. The Mini Driverís sole, smaller than a driverís, is designed to make it easy to hit this club off the deck. Thatís why, even though itís called a SLDR Mini Driver, youíre going to want to replace your 3-wood with it. Then youíll have a great option for long, accurate tee shots when placement in the fairway is vital. And you've got the perfect club for getting home in two on those previously unreachable par-5s. Because everything that makes the SLDR Mini Driver long and accurate off the tee makes it long and accurate off the turf too.
We noticed that Tour pros and better amateurs hit their 3-wood off the tee a lot more frequently than from the fairway, so we embraced that insight and used our cutting edge metalwood technology to create a club that is designed for the tee, with a size that fits in between 3-wood and driver. - Brian Bazzel, TaylorMade Senior Director - Metalwood Product Creation
