TaylorMade Tops Golf Digest Hot List
04 Mar 2014
TaylorMade Golf, renowned for innovations in performance-enhancing golf equipment, 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.
SLDR was first played on the PGA Tour in July 2013. Since then, it has quickly emerged as the No. 1 driver model on the PGA Tour. Click here to learn more about SLDR.
Also receiving high praise was the SpeedBlade irons, which earned the highest marks in the game improvement iron category. SpeedBlade, which received 19/20 stars, is radically differently than any other iron in terms of look, speed, launch, spin, feel, sound. Visually, SpeedBlade irons are striking, combining a two-tone, satin nickel chrome plating with dark smoke satin ion plating (IP). The key performance feature that separates SpeedBlade from the pack is the Speed Pocket, a handle-bar shaped slot in the sole of the 3-7 irons that enables a large area of the face to flex and rebound at impact, resulting in faster ball speed, higher launch and better feel.
