With just one simple 12-position loft sleeve, the TaylorMade R1 is a driver for everyone.

The most noticeable aspect of the Taylormade R1 Driver – as you can see from the sole - is its simple 12-position loft sleeve and 7-face angle positions. discount golf clubs The driver has no loft stamped on it because it has the ability to be adjusted for loft and set anywhere between 8- and 12-degrees.

R1 also allows loft and face angle to be adjusted independently of each other, which will prove a welcome addition to the golfer seeking their desired ball flight. discount r11s driver The R1's three adjustability technologies allow it to be tuned 168 different ways to specifically fit a player's swing to optimise distance and accuracy.

Thick-thin crown technology saves weight in the crown that was redistributed elsewhere to lower the centre of gravity and move it closer to the face. The former promotes a higher launcher angle while the latter increases ball speed.

In terms of looks, the crown features a white matte finish to eliminate glare, while a black, orange and grey graphic helps frame the remaining white area, producing a V-shape to aid alignment.

As its name suggests, the TaylorMade R1 Driver is one driver for everyone – an idea borne out of the company's research with 800 everyday golfers. Results revealed 80% of players were playing the wrong loft and that 24% had the incorrect loft by at least 2-degrees. The test also highlighted 52% needed more loft, while only 28% required less.

The TaylorMade R1 is a one-size-fits-all driver that can be set anywhere between 8- and 12-degrees. TaylorMade RocketBladez Irons The R1 also allows loft and face angle to be adjusted independently of each other, which will prove a welcome addition to the golfer seeking their desired ball flight.

TaylorMade has also created two movable shot-shape weights in the R1 to enable golfers to shift the clubhead's centre of gravity location by 5mm, thereby aiding a draw or neutral/straight trajectory.
