What is the TaylorMade M1 Driver?

The TaylorMade M1 driver is the closest you’ll ever come to a tour-like fitting. It’s the most advanced driver TaylorMade has ever designed – featuring multi-material construction, a T-Track System, and multiple shaft options to get you fit into the longest driver built.

“At TaylorMade, we always pride ourselves on improving our metalwood performance and distance each year. With the constant advances in titanium technology, we found ourselves at a crossroads, one where the R15 was almost unbeatable. We have an allegiance to performance and we were willing to use whatever material or construction necessary to deliver it. I believe the new M1 is a true reflection of our dedication to improving golfers through innovative designs.” – Brian Bazzel, Sr. Director of Product Creation



The “M” in the M1 driver doesn’t stand for Taylor”M”ade, it stands for Multi-Material. This is where TaylorMade R&D took it to another lever. The Carbon Composite Crown is a 7-layer design that’s thin, light-weight and super strong. This multi-material design is a huge weight-saver, saving almost 12 grams that can now be used to your advantage. The extra weight is now utilized in the sole for a lower center of gravity to hit the ball higher, easier, and gain more clubhead speed.


T-Track System

The new T-Track System expands on the moveable weights found in the SLDR and R15 drivers. There’s now two different tracks, a front and a back.

Front Track

This track features one 15-gram weight that can be adjusted from heel to toe to enhance a fade, neutral or draw.

Back Track

This track features on 10-gram weight that can be adjusted to control the spin and launch conditions.

Loft Sleeve

The Loft Sleeve is a staple among TaylorMade golf clubs and deservedly so. It provides you with an option of 12 positions to adjust the face angle, loft and lie. The loft can be changed a total of 4 degrees (+/- 2).


Shaft Options

The TaylorMade M1 driver will have 3 different stock shaft options, all geared toward the ball flight you’re looking for.

  • High Launch: Fujikura Pro 60
  • Mid Launch: Mitsubishi KuroKage TiNi Silver 60
  • Low Launch: Aldila Rogue Silver 70
