TaylorMade Launches Original One Mini Driver
TaylorMade has launched its intriguing new Original One Mini Driver, which is an homage to many of the technologies introduced throughout the company's history, bringing them together to deliver a high performing club.
“In 1979, golf was changed forever with the introduction of the Pittsburgh Persimmon™ - the original metalwood. For the past 40 years, TaylorMade has continued that legacy of innovation with game-changing technologies, engineered to help golfers perform at their best. The Original One Mini Driver incorporates that heritage of innovation with key performance technologies, packed into a confidence-inspiring shape that delivers on distance, forgiveness and accuracy.” - Tomo Bystedt, Senior Director, Product Creation
EVOLUTION OF THE MINI DRIVER
TaylorMade first entered the category with the introduction of SLDR® Mini in 2014 and enhanced the product the following year with the faster, higher-launching AeroBurner™ Mini – both utilising predominantly steel in their construction. While both offered the company’s Speed Pocket™ technology, Original One Mini Driver is designed to deliver a new level of speed, forgiveness and visual appeal never-before seen in this category.
Additional features in Original One Mini include:
- Loft Sleeve™ with ±2° loft adjustability
- Twist Face™ Technology to provide the ultimate path to straight distance
- Inverted Cone Technology to promote ball speed on off-centre hits
WHO IS ORIGINAL ONE MINI DRIVER FOR?
Like its predecessors, the Original One Mini Driver is targeted at golfers of all skill levels. It has been engineered to provide an option off the tee that delivers the accuracy and control of a fairway wood but with more distance and forgiveness. Faster swing speed players may additionally benefit from ease of use off the turf with Original One Mini Drivers’ combination of a medium face depth with ultra-low centre of gravity location for extreme distance and excellent playability from fairway lies.
WHERE THE MINI DRIVER FITS INTO THE BAG
From a performance perspective, the Original One Mini Driver with its 275cc head (9% larger than AeroBurner Mini) will fit directly between a driver and a fairway wood. Some golfers will opt to play the club in addition to their current fairway woods, while others may choose to replace a longer fairway wood that was mainly being used off the tee. Most golfers will keep the regular driver in the bag as the club that ultimately delivers the most distance.
SPECIFICATIONS, PRICING & AVAILABILITY
Available for pre-order starting today, April 16 and at retail beginning May 1, the Original One Mini Driver RRP of £369/ EU 419 will only be offered in 13.5° loft and only come equipped with Mitsubishi’s Diamana F Limited shaft in 55g (R), or 65g (S) flexes at 43.75”.
