2017 TaylorMade M2 Driver: New & Improved

Following in the footsteps of its predecessor, TaylorMade’s new M2 driver generates both distance and forgiveness through the utilization of a new multi-material construction and advanced shaping with a breakthrough design technique called ‘Geocoustic’. The new M2 also houses a newly-designed Speed Pocket that is three times more flexible than its predecessor.

The Geocoustic feature combines geometry and acoustical engineering to unlock more forgiveness and best-in-class sound. The new breakthrough in geometry is the sunken sole portion of the driver. This section utilizes an ultra-light, thick-thin 9-1-1 Titanium, a design that enabled TaylorMade’s engineers to free up volume while not raising the CG.

The freed up volume allowed engineers to make the driver’s head larger, both the visible footprint as well as the club’s face (7%), making the driver not only appear more visibly forgiving, but feel more forgiving at the same time.

The breakthrough in acoustical engineering was achieved by the new sunken sole curvature, making it stiffer and easier to manage vibrations caused at impact. With this added stiffness, minimal sound ribs were needed to create the excellent sound and feel of the M2.

The new lower density 9-1-1 Titanium body, six-layer carbon composite crown and minimal sound ribs allowed for 25g of discretionary mass to be relocated low and back in the sole of the club. These features combine to increase the overall inertia of the M2 driver over the 5,000 g-cm2 barrier, without sacrificing performance.

For Asian specs, loft options are 9.5°, 10.5°, and 12°(for ladies), fitted with the TM1-217 Mitsubishi Rayon graphite shaft and women’s TM1-317 MRC shaft.

For Global spec, the additional loft is 12° and the stock shaft is the Fujikura Pro XLR8 56.
