TAY­LORMADE M1

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GOLFING | GEARGUIDE -

www.tay­lor­made­golf.com Lofts: 3/15°; 3HL/17°; 5/19°

Stock shaft: Mit­subishi Kuro Kage TiNi

Ad­justable hosel: Yes

How much loft change: +/- 2°

TECH: A 25g slid­ing sole weight lets you dial in a draw fade or neu­tral bias to al­low you to hit the shot shape you de­sire. An open chan­nel speed pocket and Ni-Co C300 face de­liver more ball speed.

WE SAY: The M1 was an ab­so­lutely top per­former in our test in the hands of our pro. It is 25cc smaller (150cc) than the M2 and as much as that makes for a cute lit­tle head sat be­hind the ball, it does mean slightly less for­give­ness. In the hands of our pro the M1 pro­duced the joint fastest ball speed av­er­age (with the M2, at 158mph) and a carry dis­tance just a yard be­hind the long­est (M2, 234m).

VER­DICT: The split be­tween our pro and am­a­teur testers high­lights the di­rec­tion lots of club golfers should head in. The M1’s bril­liant as long as you’re a con­fi­dent, rea­son­ably pro­fi­cient golfer and your game doesn’t need ab­so­lute for­give­ness.

‘THE M1’S BRIL­LIANT AS LONG AS YOU’RE A REA­SON­ABLY PRO­FI­CIENT GOLFER’
