TaylorMade Golf Companyhas announced it was the recipient of nine gold medals in the 2014 Golf Digest “Hotlist” equipment issue.
The most notable of those gold medals was SLDR, which made Hotlist history by becoming the first driver to earn five stars in the categories of: Performance, Innovation, Look/Sound/Feel and Demand.
“The driver results of the 2014 Golf Digest Hotlist test are consistent with what we have seen over the last five months with not only PGA and European Tour players, but golfers of all skill levels,” said Sean Toulon, TaylorMade Executive Vice President. “Because of the low and forward centre of gravity placement, golfers are adding loft to their SLDR drivers to achieve massive distance gains. When you can hit your tee shot higher with little spin, the ball is going to carry longer and hit the ground running. I truly believe we are entering another replacement cycle for drivers because those without low and forward CG placement simply won’t perform as well.”
