Check out TaylorMade's most technologically advanced driver to date

5 TaylorMade have launched the R15 driver – their most technologically advanced driver to date.

A new split-weight sliding system features on the sole which allows golfers to adjust two 12.5g weights for draw and fade bias or they can be split for maximum stability across the face.

The driver comes in a larger 460cc and a more compact 430cc model but both have lower and forward CG to promote higher launch and less spin.

The sliding weight system and a new front track speed pocket have been moved even closer to the front – 12mm closer than on the SLDR meaning 75 per cent of the club’s mass is at the front.

There’s 4° of loft adjustability in the shaft to dial in your optimum launch conditions.

R15 marks a return to the satin white finish synonymous with the TaylorMade R range but both drivers are also available in black.

“Everything we have learned on low-forward CG, sliding weights, Speed Pocket,
and adjustability have gone into the R15, making this our most technologically advanced driver ever,” said Benoit Vincent, vice present of R&D.
