When we developed SLDR, our easiest-to-adjust driver ever, we didn't expect it to change the rules of distance. Yet it did. Maximum yardage comes from combining high launch, low spin and fast ball speed. SLDR’s low-and-forward CG promotes fast ball speed and low spin. To add high launch, you are now able to increase your loft.

Tour pros are “lofting up” and hitting the ball farther. Dustin Johnson, Stewart Cink, Darren Clarke, Carl Pettersson, Johnson Wagner, Lucas Glover, Scott Verplank, Blake Adams and Justin Leonard are just some who have lofted up for more distance. That’s why SLDR is currently the #1 driver model on the PGA Tour, and has already amassed 9 worldwide wins since being introduced in July.

LOFT UP EDUCATION
FACT: High Launch + Low Spin+ More Loft = More Distance

SLDR maximizes distance for all golfers

a. Low forward CG makes SLDR our lowest spinning driver ever

b. SLDR unlocks that distance by enabling the golfer to hit the ball higher with less spin – WHEN THEY ADD LOFT

c. SLDR can help all golfers get closer to the ideal launch conditions of 17°/1700rpm

d. All golfers can achieve distance gains w/out changing their swing or ball speed
LOFT UP FOR MORE DISTANCE - ONLY FROM TAYLORMADE
Loft up for More Distance – TaylorMade SLDR’s CG location is low-and-forward, a monumental shift in metalwood thinking. For decades it has been accepted that a low-and-back CG is best. Moving the CG forward promotes faster ball speed and lower spin. And in order to get the most distance from SLDR, you have to change the way you think about loft.

No longer is playing a driver with 12 degrees of loft something to be ashamed of. In fact, former British Open Champion Stewart Cink is playing a 12 degree SLDR. While it was admittedly strange to him at first, once he started carrying the ball past his playing competitors, he was sold. Try lofting up yourself to see just how much it will benefit your game. You’ll be blown away.

"12°. That’s the first time I’ve ever used a driver with that much loft on it."
– STEWART CINK

"I love the deep face and with that you can play more loft. And whenever you look down at more loft, it’s a club that looks a lot easier to hit."
– JUSTIN ROSE

"Ten and a half degrees of loft, and I’m looking to go even higher. Amazingly you take more loft and it goes even further."
– SCOTT VERPLANK

"I’ve got a 10.5 head, and I’ve put the loft on ‘higher’ so I’m playing around 11.5°. And if the driver goes like it does, it doesn’t matter what loft you have it at, you could have 16° of loft."
– CARL PETTERSSON

"My first swing with it was Monday at the Open Championship. The look, sound and distance were incredible. I've never put a new driver in my bag so fast, and never at a major."
– DUSTIN JOHNSON

"With this driver, it's amazing how much further I’m actually hitting it, which is pretty cool."
– JASON DAY
