Pro-Am Golf Hot New Driver for 2021
TaylorMade SIM2 Forged Ring Construction is crushing it
Forged from a lightweight and high strength aluminum that is milled to an exacting shape, forged ring construction unites a massive rear weight, a full carbon sole, crown and a milled back cup face. Creating a confidence-inspiring driver designed for increased stability and forgiveness.
The asymmetric inertia generator is designed to provide faster club head speed through advanced geometry and aerodynamic analytics. A full lightweight carbon sole enables the redistribution of mass for a deeper CG and enhanced forgiveness.
Speed injected twist face improves ball speed by calibrating each head to the threshold of the legal speed limit with corrective face curvature also protecting against heel and toe mishits.
