Today's Golfer (UK) - - American Golf -

www.tay­lor­made­golf.com Lofts: 9.5°, 10.5°, 12° Stock shaft: Ma­trix MFS White Tie 55 Ad­justable Hosel: Yes How much loft change: +/- 2° TECH: Not your stan­dard draw driver. Sole weight­ing moves to­wards the heel, and there’s plenty of clever tweaks to the de­sign to de­liver an av­er­age of 12 yards of draw bias (but up to 20 is on of­fer if you in­clude hosel adaptor ad­just­ment) from a head that doesn’t look closed.

WE SAY: As good as past “draw” driv­ers have been, golfers who’ve used them have con­fessed to feel­ing like keep­ing a dirty se­cret! We prom­ise, though, the D-type’s dif­fer­ent. The face an­gle doesn’t aim left, the de­sign, cosmetics and “draw” name don’t scream slicey golfer... and the D-type doesn’t just work for slicers either. Si­mon, who’d never en­ter­tained a draw driver be­fore, re­ally warmed to the D-type as his typ­i­cal heel strike is right in line with the D-type’s heel-bi­ased CG. So not only did it feel re­ally sta­ble, it also pro­duced some of his fastest ball speeds.

VER­DICT: The D-type brings some­thing very new to the Taylormade party. It’s se­ri­ously good for more than just slicers.
