WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

  • As he has since the Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Rory has continued to play a 9° M5 Driver, of which he’s found remarkable success this season. At TPC Sawgrass, Rory averaged 305 yards off the tee for the tournament – good for fifth in the field.
  • In addition to the M5 driver, McIlroy also games a 19° M5 titanium fairway, which he put into play the same week he added the M5 driver to the bag – in Kapalua.
  • Rory’s first PGA TOUR win of the season is the 4th win for the new 2019 TP5/x golf ball – joining Johnson (x2) and Fowler as staffers who’ve won playing it. Rory’s preferred golf ball is the is the ’19 TP5, stamped #22.
  • Working diligently to find his putting stroke heading into the season’s first major championship, McIlroy added the new Spider X putter to his equipment arsenal this season and the results have been impressive. This week, he carded 21 birdies or better en route to victory. His win is the second on the PGA TOUR with the company’s newest putter; joining the winner of the Honda Classic.
  • Having played the Milled Grind Wedges since first joining Team TaylorMade, Rory’s setup has remained fairly consistent throughout the year This week, he opted for the Milled Grind Raw in 48°, complementing it with 54° & 60° Milled Grind Hi-Toe wedges.
  • With the win, McIlroy will elevate to #4 in the OWGR and is set to be a #1 seed at the WGC-Dell Match Play next week.

M6 DRIVER  SPEED INJECTED FOR MAXIMUM FORGIVENESS

M6 DRIVER SPEED INJECTED FOR MAXIMUM FORGIVENESS

M6 DRIVER

SPEED INJECTED FOR MAXIMUM FORGIVENESS

JUICED-UP WITH SPEED INJECTED TWIST FACE
Every M6 driver head has been individually calibrated to reach the threshold of the maximum legal limit of ball speed. So, whether you’re fighting for your club championship or battling it out in your weekend fourball, you’ll be playing with a driver that’s engineered to make everybody faster.

SPEED INJECTED™

  • Every head is individually speed tested and injected with tuning resin to optimize COR across the entire face
  • The Speed Injection process is designed to maximize ball speed and distance in the M6 driver, achieving performance at or near the legal limit
  • Injection is not required for approximately 0.3% of heads

TWIST FACE™

• Revolutionary new face curvature with a corrective face angle on off center hits, engineered to reduce side spin and deliver straighter shots

• Twist Face provides more loft in the high toe and less loft in the low-heel to produce more consistent spin where golfers commonly mis-hit

AERODYNAMIC CARBON SOLE DESIGN WITH “INERTIA GENERATOR”

• Sleek, aerodynamic shaping designed to provide increased clubhead speed for more distance

• Inertia Generator stores 46g of weight low and back for maximum forgiveness

• 54% more carbon than M4 allows for more weight to be housed within the “Inertia Generator”

HAMMERHEAD 2.0

• The new, more flexible Hammerhead slot works in conjunction with Speed Injected Twist Face to produce a larger sweet spot and preserve ball speed on off-center strikes

“Speed Injected Twist Face delivers a hot, yet accurate performance package in the new M6 driver. When you combine that with added clubhead speed through advanced aerodynamics, the result is a complete driver that delivers on all fronts.”

— Brian Bazzel | Vice President Product Creation

  • Twist Face provides more loft in the high toe and less loft in the low-heel to produce more consistent spin where golfers commonly mis-hit

INVERSE T-TRACK

  • The new, more efficient Inverse T-Track enables two 10g weights to be maneuvered for optimal spin and trajectory
  • The inverted design allows the weight to be positioned further back along the perimeter of the club, lowering the CG and increasing MOI/forgiveness

HAMMERHEAD 2.0

  • The new, more flexible Hammerhead slot works in conjunction with Speed Injected Twist Face to produce a larger sweet spot and preserve ball speed on off-center strikes

“The M5 driver has a new multi-material head, designed as close as possible to the speed limit through a new breakthrough face technology. Utilizing a new manufacturing process, each head has been individually speed tested on multiple positions before being strategically injected with tuning resin to achieve the tightest possible tolerance to the legal limit of speed. This optimized face combined with a more efficient inverse T-Track delivers a fast, forgiving, and personalized driver that’s designed to increase ball speed for every golfer.”

Adjustable Drivers – we make them work!

Did you purchase one of the latest drivers with all sorts of adjustment options in hopes it would save your game only to be disappointed in its performance? The available adjustment options on clubs such as the TaylorMade R11 and RBZ, Callaway RAZR Fit or Titleist 910D allow a golfer to adjust the club so that it changes the ball flight. Finding the ideal settings can be a challenge and if not done right, the club will actually perform much worse than if left alone at the factory neutral settings. (more…)
