During the off season here in the Ottawa area golf nuts like myself have a lot of free time til we can tee it up again (unless of course we plan a Winter golf vacation). You can only clean your clubs so many times and putt indoors on your putting green so often. That’s where buying golf clubs online can feed your hunger to play. I know during the Winter I love to scan eBay and my favorite golf for sale forums to find that club that was getting all the great reviews and accolades. I know last season I pick up a TaylorMade Burner 2.0 Superfast Driver during the off-season and it became my driver for all of 2012 which for me is astonishing considering my sideline as a Golf Blogger.
Now if your like me and over the last few weeks you’d search Google and typed in, “TaylorMade R1 driver or TaylorMade R1 driver 2013” you would of come up with some interesting speculation and pictures from various golf fanatics. Yes TaylorMade has a new driver for 2013, aptly named the R1. If you want to see the Official Pics of the 2013 TaylorMade R1 Driver then scroll down and feast your eyes on what TaylorMade has made to entice us this winter.
I love the new color scheme. Visually the orange and black stripes on the crown are very appealing to the eye. The way the new R1 logo blends in on the crown is very well done as well.
When you first see the new face tuning system on the bottom of the club you can’t help but think of a compass. Being able to fine tune your R1 with this system is ideal for both the amateur and pro. Seven face angle (Neutral, Open, Medium-Open, Maximum-Open, Closed, Medium Closed and Maximum Closed) and loft angles ranging from 7 standard and 5 upright loft options that range from 8 to 12 degrees (+/- 2 degrees). The R1 is a driver built for a golfer who likes to tweak his driver for his swing.
Thanks TaylorMade Golf for yet another groundbreaking innovative design. So what do you think?
The TaylorMade R1 driver will be available for pre-sale at golf retailers like Global Golf on January 3, 2012, with clubs hitting the streets beginning February 21, 2013.
Marketing geniuses TaylorMade Golf with a little video with some well known PGA Tour Pros perusing the R1 Driver. Nice work with only a fleeting glimpse of the driver.
