Watch Frank LaRosa from Golf to Go on ESPN 1320 talks with Dave Kolarick from TaylorMade on “Loft Up or be left behind”
You will hear everyone at TaylorMade say “LOFT UP!” This term refers to TaylorMade’s design of the SLDR driver and how they improved where the center of gravity is on the club head. The TaylorMade’s SLDR design of the sliding track is low and forward which will reduce backspin, increase launch angle and see increased distance. Moving the center of gravity forward promotes faster ball speed and low spin. In order to get the most distance from the TaylorMade SLDR, you have to change the way you think about loft.
It is not a surprise that high launch and low spin maximizes driver distance, but many believe that only tour players can benefit from lofting up. This is not the case with the TaylorMade SLDR. SLDR unlocks that distance by enabling the golfer to hit the ball higher with less spin, when they add loft. Regardless of swing speed,by lofting up you will see an increase in distance. Tour players are lofting up and gaining distance. Dustin Johnson, Stewart Cink, Darren Clarke, Carl Pettersson, Johnson Wagner, Lucas Glover, Scott Verplank, Blake Adams and Justin Leonard are just some who have lofted up for more distance. TaylorMade SLDR is currently the #1 driver model on the PGA Tour.
“We have the science to prove why SLDR is the longest driver we’ve ever made. We have an army of Tour Professionals who validate the performance,” said Brian Bazzel, TaylorMade’s Director of Product Creation for Metalwoods.“We know there are golfers out there who don’t trust our science or what tour players do. So we’re encouraging these golfers to trust their own distance.
