TaylorMade R1 Driver follows the R11S driver 
By golfonlineau on Feb 21, 2013 03:54 AM
The TaylorMade R1 improves on the company’s premium driver from a year ago, the R11S driver, offering slightly more ball speed and less spin thanks to a lower, more forward center of gravity. It is truly ground breaking and represents an incredible golf online forward in technology, more distance and better adjustability.

TaylorMade Golf also picked up a big win as Johnson notched his seventh PGA TOUR victory using the company’s R1 driver, which was released on Jan. 3. Johnson employed a 10 degree TaylorMade R1 Driver with a neutral face angle and an 8-gram shot shape weight in the toe and 2-gram shot shape weight in the heel for the 54-hole tournament. He averaged 275.9 yards off the tee and recorded a 405-yard drive during the final round, which was the longest in the field during Tuesday’s final round.

Dustin Johnson, the first player since Tiger Woods to come straight out of college and win in his first six seasons on the PGA Tour, sporting the TaylorMade R1 driver for the first time in competitive play, the seven-time champion unsurprisingly topped the driving distance for the week on 289 yards. Plus the TaylorMade RocketBladez Irons, he won the Tournament of Champions.

What impresss me most is the greatest range of adjustability R1 offers. “Offering a wide range of loft settings is imperative, because our research indicates that 80% of golfers are playing the wrong loft, which costs them distance,” said Dr Benoit Vincent, chief technical officer. “The R1 offers 12 positions to help golfers find the loft that delivers the launch conditions that deliver maximum distance.”

That’s an improvement over TaylorMade R11s Driver. The R1's three adjustability technologies allow it to be tuned 168 different ways to specifically fit a player's swing to optimize distance and accuracy. The new R1 driver has a 4-degree range of adjustability, from 8 degrees to 12 degrees, giving golfers no excuse for having the wrong loft. R1's wide range of lofts and face angles, along with its movable shot-shape weights, allow this single driver model to be tuned to fit the widest range of players, from Tour pros to high handicaps.
