They won’t be here for Christmas, but Taylormade this week announced its all new range of M1 irons, and a new and improved 2017 range of M2 irons.
Both new golf clubs offer distance, height, forgiveness and feel… more forgiving for those of us mere mortals on the golf course. The M1 does all of this, but in a slightly more compact clubhead, possibly for the more advanced golfer that wants more workability in an iron.
‘The improved M2 irons as well as the all-new M1 irons represent a breakthrough in combining incredible distance with industry-leading forgiveness. Through the use of innovative technologies and purposeful design, these irons will appeal to a wide range of golfers seeking the complete performance package, said Tomo Bystedt, Senior Director, TaylorMade Irons
