This driver is everything I was told it would be. From the first tee box I found this driver easy to hit and it easily added 20-25 yards to my drives. I am 60 years old with two knee replacements. My swing has slowed greatly the past few years. I went from my R11s to the M2 and instantly went from drives of 240-250 to hitting 260-270 and keeping it in the fairway. I highly recommend this club!
I'm a high ball hitter and found these club even higher than normal and they have a better trajectory with no ballooning. They look great when looking down at the head and have a great feel at contact. I find the same to be the case with the hybrids. Can't remember why I went to another brand a few years ago, but glad to be back with Taylormade.nThanks
I purchased this club yesterday after trying it out on simulator. I needed a #3 Hybrid, rescue club, since my set only went down to a #4. I am 52 years old, and have limited mobility due to arthritis. I was able to carry the ball 196 yards and total distance was 216 yards, middle of fairway. I forgot to mention mine has a regular flex shaft. Have not had a chance to use it on the course yet, but it seems that it will work a lot better for me than my 3 iron. Will add another comment after I get to use it in the real world.
My long, tedious wait is over. After trying dozens of drivers over the years, my search has ended for one that gives me the following: Fabulous feel, feedback and distance; a beautiful and confident look at address; powerful, slightly muted sound and forgiving. I thought that would be too much to ask, but the M1 delivers and then some. Adjusted it a number of times at the range first to achieve the right combination. It's worth every penny. My only minor complaint was the grip, which I replaced. I just hope they hold off on an M2 release (at least for a year).
Fantastic Club! Solid off the tee and fairway. Love it!!

Just finished my round with my new 5 M1 Rescue. Started my round off by running to the tee where I pulled my new M1 out and nailed my tee shot straight down the middle! First hole is a Par 4 with a pond just left of center approximately 185 yards out from the tee. I bought the new M1 as my old rescue was more draw biased and had a hard time keeping it straight not even speaking that a fade wasn't even possible. My second time I used it was on the 10th hole, another short Par 4 with a bunker out 195 yards from the tee. I thought this might be a good time to see if my new M1 would perform again as it did on the first tee and boy did it! Straight down the middle again leaving me 10 yards from going into the bunker. 1 fairway shot also resulted in a fantastic approach shot! Great Job Taylormade!!!
I golfed at Crosswinds in Plymouth, MA the other day with my aunt. She had this club in her bag and was raving about it and how effective and forgiving it is, especially for getting out of the rough. I tried it and could not believe how well I hit it. Getting out of the rough is not my strength; what a difference this club made. I actually hit it 150 yeards from the rough onto the green! We were convinced I was actually trying to get in the rough just so I could use it again!nI had her take a picture of it when we were done playing so I could purchase one for myself- I am a teacher, so I will have to wait until the fall when I start getting paid again, but it will be worth my extra tutoring money!nIt is truly a perfect weight, easy to handle and grip, but most of all, I loved how I played with it.
I SHOULD BE A TAYLOR,MADE UNOFFICIAL REP.nDURING TWO DIFFERENT ROUNDS OF GOLF I LET THREE OF MY BUDDIES TRY MY MI DRIVER AND 3 WOOD.RESULT WAS I HAD TO BEG THEM TO GIVE IT BCK TO ME. THEY HAVE PUT THIER OWN DRIVER IN THE GARAGE AND WENT RIGHT OUT AFTER THE ROUND AND BOUGHT THEIR OWN M1 DRIVER AND 3 WOOD. OR SHOULD I SAY UNMETAL WOOD. RESULT WAS ONE CALLAWAY, AND TWO TITLELEST ARE NOW OLD HISTORY.

Even though the M2 TOUR was released on 3-15-2016, I have only been able to find two reviews online, both from British pros. I guess they are for a niche market.nnThe clubs are tremendous. They have many of the attributes of the mass market M2 base model. Those are marketed as an ultra-high game improvement iron for high handicappers. nnThe M2 TOUR on the other hand, is a slimmed down version with great workability. Hitting fades and draws are easy. The top line and sole are noticeably thinner.nnWhat I liked the best about them and what you can feel in the first swing, is the low center of gravity. The ball flies high and far. It almost feels like the first time I picked up an Adams rescue club 25 years ago. (Adams, a division of TaylorMade).nnAfter hitting them on the range and supposedly dialing in my distances for 1.5 hours I headed out to the Ballantyne Golf Club for 18 holes. On the first hole a long par four, I had 179 yards to the pin remaining. Normally I hit a 4 iron 180 yards. I ended up overflying the green and hitting it 190. nnThey come standard with an True Temper XP steel shaft 95 grams. Others are available and I tried the 105 gram KBS but it slowed my swing speed down by 4 mph.nnI am a life long golfer age 55, playing to a 14 handicap. I play 3 times per month but hit range balls more frequently.nnThis club is a gem and I highly recommend it. Well dome TaylorMade.
