Win is first Worldwide for M1 Driver, Which Was #1 Model Played at Conway Farms Just One Week After Official Launch  

What You Need To Know:

  • Day’s win is the first for TaylorMade’s new M1 driver and nineteenth for TaylorMade drivers in the full calendar ‘14-15 PGA TOUR season. Jason recently switched into the 10.5* M1 460 Driver with a Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Silver TiNi 70x shaft tipped 1’’; the same shaft he played in his R15 driver earlier this season.
  • With 21 drivers in play (16 of them being M1) and 30% of the field, TaylorMade was the #1 driver brand at the BMW Championship. 14 players elected to add the M1 460 to their bags, while an additional 4 players gamed the M1 430.
  • With his win, Day jumps to #1 in the OWGR for the first time in his career and takes a commanding points lead into next week’s Tour Championship.
  • Day’s victory is the seventh for TaylorMade’s Tour Preferred EF wedges. This week, he switched to a 47*, 52* & 58* combination (Tour Grind: 47*, ATV Grind: 52* & 58*). Day plays the RSi TP irons, which he currently has shafted with True Temper’s Dynamic Gold X7 shafts. Also of note, he carries a 47* RSi TP PW, which is de-lofted 2.5-3 degrees; Day has all of his irons bent strong.
  • Day plays the Tour Preferred X golf ball with the number 87 (the year he was born) and a kangaroo stamp paying homage to his Australian roots.
  • Day’s win makes him the first player in the FedExCup era to win The Barclays and Deutsche Bank Championship in the same season.
