TaylorMade On Tour: WGC-Cadillac Championship

TaylorMade Tour Truck

With the West Coast swing on the PGA Tour now complete, the move to Florida is in full effect. Over the next month, many TaylorMade staffers can be found tinkering with their golf equipment as the golf courses, conditions, and layouts are vastly different on the East Coast compared to the West Coast.

Dustin Johnson at Riviera Country Club

The Northern Trust Open ended a good run on the West Coast for Taylormade staffers, with 3 top ten finishes. Over the past few weeks, the M family of drivers has continued to strengthen their position on the PGA Tour. The Darrell Survey reported 41% of drivers in play at the Honda Classic were one of the two M drivers (M1 or M2). In total nine additional PGA Tour players put an M driver in play at PGA National.

Sergio Garcia TaylorMade PSi Irons

Segio Garcia posted a 2nd place finish at the Honda Classic, gaming the PSi Tour iron and an M2 driver. Above is a picture of what’s in his bag.

Gary Woodland at the Honda Classic

As for the new adopters of the M2 , three notable staff members, Sean O’Hair, Brian Harmon, and Gary Woodland have all put the M2 in their respective bags. Even pros miss the center of the face sometimes, so the forgiveness, distance, and accuracy yielded with the M2 has been leading to better overall misses.

Ryan Palmer TaylorMade M2 Testing

On our previous report, Ryan Palmer was mentioned as a player that didn’t link to tinker too much. He liked the TaylorMade M2 fairway so much that it was in his bag weeks ago and has spent the past few weeks dialing it in. He can now launch it higher and get it to land softer around the green while still being able to use the club as a substitute for his driver on shorter par 4’s or where accuracy is at a premium. This sounds like an #UnFairway to us! Learn more and see what we have to say about the M2 fairway wood here.
