SPOTTED: A “TaylorMade M3” driver pops up on Instagram

Published

on

In November, two photos of a “TaylorMade M4″ driver were posted Instagram, and one of the photos indicated something called “Hammerhead” technology in the sole. Today, a TaylorMade “M3” driver was posted on Instagram from user “bryangolf,” who associates with PGA National Resort & Spa in his profile.

Based on the photo, it appears TaylorMade is using a different-looking weight track compared to its previous CG-adjustable M1 driver. The M1 drivers of 2016 and 2017 both used dual-weighted T-tracks to help displace weight toward the heel and the toe, and from back to front. It appears that this TaylorMade “M3” driver has a y-shaped track, also housing two weights. It also appears that TaylorMade is using carbon fiber in this “M3” driver, and it also displays the same “Hammerhead” technology in the sole as seen in the photo of the “M4.”

As the photos indicate, with the “M3” being weight-adjustable, and the “M4” having no CG adjustability, it could mean that the M3 is a replacement for the adjustable M1, and the M4 is a replacement for the non-adjustable M2.

What do you think about the photo of this new TaylorMade “M3” driver?

    To the guy that says he bought a M1 M2 and an M4. How did you buy an M4 when it’s not even out? Until they show us the top of the driver I’ll hold my evaluation on my opinion till then.

    Wait until all the info on the new M3 and M4 gets out there. Their approach with these drivers is a completely different than all others. Than you guys will really have something to debate about.

    Those weight tracks in the back going to the sides will do absolutely nothing.

    Does this one have white with the black top line like the previous models? Love the white and black way more than the grey and black.

      He actually got in a little bit of trouble but not from TM. He doesn’t actually work for PGA National but he works for the LOFT Golf trailer on the PGA National property. He had to take down the post for liability issues with PGA National.

TaylorMade is releasing its TP Black Copper putters to retail

Published

on

We first spotted TaylorMade’s new TP Black Copper putters at the 2018 PGA Show, but the company wasn’t saying anything about specs, release date, pricing, technologies, nothing.

Then, we all saw Rory McIlroy switch to a TaylorMade TP Black Copper Soto proto putter ahead of the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational, which he won by 3 strokes. Of course, Rory’s specific Soto putter was made with a special insert. Click here for all of the info and specs on Rory’s putter.

Now, TaylorMade is releasing retail versions to the public in four models — Juno, Soto, Ardmore 3 and Mullen 2 — which will hit stores on 4/20 selling for $199 with a standard Black Lamkin Crossbone Pistol grip, and $219 with a SuperStroke Pistol 1.0 GT grip.

The putters have a triple-plated finish; nickel, then copper, then black chrome, according to TaylorMade’s Bill Price (Senior Director of Product Creation for Wedges and Putters). They’re then hand-polished to achieve the antique and non-glare finish. Overtime, and especially on the sole, Price says the copper will tarnish or oxidize to unveil a gradually more antique and rustic look. Rory McIlroy himself actually had a hand in inspiring the new finish.

“Rory was talking about certain finishes,” Price said. “He wanted something non-glare, with an antique type finish…. he wanted to be reminded of something old school.” 

Thus, the TP Black Copper finish was born.

Also, the putters are machined from 303 stainless steel, they have adjustable sole weights and have the company’s familiar Pure Roll inserts in their faces. Check out more info about each of TaylorMade’s TP Black Copper models below.
