Tiger Woods is a fan, but is Hannah Holden? She takes a closer look at the TaylorMade latest fairway woods

“When Tiger Woods first saw it he was just blown away by how cool it looks.” The TaylorMade SIM2 fairway woods get the approval of the best player to ever play the game, so let’s take a closer look.

TaylorMade SIM2 fairway woods: First impressions

Again these are just great looking golf clubs from TaylorMade.

I really like the way there is a clear distinction on the sole between the different models but then we have an almost identical styling on the crown.

TaylorMade SIM2 fairway woods: The line-up

As with the drivers we have three offerings in the fairway wood line-up. The range features progressive face sizes for increasing forgiveness.

TaylorMade SIM2 Ti: This is a smaller more compact 170cc head. It has a super low CG which is directly behind the sweet spot to deliver maximum distance with mid launch and low spin. This is thanks to the 8-gram steel sole weight. It also has a super strong Zatech titanium face.

TaylorMade SIM2 Max: This is a slightly larger 190cc club head but this time features a C300 steel face. It is designed to launch slightly higher than the Ti model and also be more forgiving.

TaylorMade SIM2 Max D: Again the Max D offers a draw bias flight. It is also the biggest clubhead in the range at 195cc.

TaylorMade SIM2 fairway woods: The technology

SIM2 is designed to be more forgiving than the previous SIM offering.

The V steel sole has been redesigned with more weight brought backwards lowering the CG and increasing MOI and forgiveness.

The sole also improves turf interaction and playability from numerous different lies.
