TAYLORMADE M4

Golf World (UK) - - CONTENTS -

TaylorMade’s new M4 fair­way wood comes with added for­give­ness, eas­ier launch off the deck and raw power. Form a queue here.

The M4 has big boots to fill as it fol­lows in the foot­steps of the long and for­giv­ing 2017 M2 model. It now has a thin­ner and stronger face and a split-weight mass pad that moves weight to the perime­ter of the club­head to in­crease the size of the sweet spot. A new Tour ver­sion has a smaller head (156cc ver­sus 175cc) and slightly deeper face for bet­ter play­ers who pre­fer a more com­pact look, lower launch and in­creased work­a­bil­ity. The M4 is avail­able in 15°, 16.5°, 18°, 21° and 24° lofts, and the Tour head comes in 15° and 18°. £229. www.tay­lor­made­golf.eu

WILL IT WORK FOR ME?

The added for­give­ness that comes from not hav­ing the move­able weight of the M3 makes the M4 the go-to fair­way for most – from pros to higher hand­i­cap­pers. It’s easy to launch off the deck but its raw power means it’s also great off the tee if you strug­gle with the driver.

WHAT DOES IT RE­PLACE?

The 2017 M2 fair­way was pop­u­lar for its mix of dis­tance, easy launch and for­give­ness. It had an In­verted Cone face, while the Speed Pocket was longer and more flex­i­ble than the 2016 ver­sion and Geo­cous­tic Tech­nol­ogy im­proved the sound.

WHAT’S THE TECH STORY?

TaylorMade has con­tin­ued to de­velop its use of a multi-ma­te­rial head con­struc­tion, Speed Pocket, Geo­cous­tic Tech­nol­ogy and In­verted Cone Tech­nol­ogy in the face to make the M4 even more for­giv­ing with­out sac­ri­fic­ing any dis­tance thanks to a new Ni-Co C300 face ma­te­rial.
