TaylorMade Men's R1 Driver

Your golf swing is unique and so should your driver. The TaylorMade Men's R1 Driver is fully customizable so you can perfectly shape your shots for supreme distance off of the tee. Tune in your ideal loft then enhance that setting with an optimal launch angle to drives that fly further. Movable weights add another layer to the customization so you can promote a neutral flight path or distance-enhancing draw. The clean, white crown graphic is easy to align and minimizes glare for increased concentration.

"Our depth of experience and expertise with tuning technologies allowed us to create the R1, one driver that can be adjusted for everyone from Tour pros to high handicaps."
- Dr. Benoit Vincent, Chief Technical Officer

(Incredible drive, the best model on the market, easy to make all the settings, a precursor to the design, increased my distance by 20 yards, clearly a great acquisition)

Worth the money

Richard Fetty from Columbus, Ohio | 5/3/2013 10:44 AM

Overall Rating

Was hitting about 25 to 45 yards behind my playing partners with my Callaway Octane Tour. Hit the new Nike, Callaway and old R11s. The R1 blew them away in all categories except price. I am now staying with and or exceeding some of my playing partners. My scores are coming down. Its easier hitting 125 yard approaches instead of 165 yard shots.

Probably the Best Driver Ever Made By Any Manufacturer

Husker Al from Northern Virginia, VA | 3/30/2013 12:34 PM

Overall Rating

First, properly adjusted for your swing, this driver is very, very straight even on mis-hits so missing the fairway is pretty hard to do. Second, the more you swing this club, the farther you'll hit it: After 3 weeks, I can fly some 250+ yards in the cool weather of March, and I'm 53. I expect to regularly hit it 290+ yards by Summer. Enough said.

Awesome lot, hot face

Kevin Hintz from Indiana | 1/31/2013 2:41 PM

Overall Rating

Hit this club a couple of times in store and compared to my Callaway Tour Authentic and wow! First swing with a hoodie on ball speed was 169 mph with a total distance of 305. Second time I hit it I was getting 170+ mph ball speeds hitting it 314+ yards. This club is deep, even deeper than RBZ stage 2! The look is amazing too, yes at first I was skeptical but its great for alignment and easy on the eyes. Great club get one!

Another great product from Taylormade

Fernando Solorzano from Coral Springs, FL | 1/31/2013 6:55 AM

Overall Rating

The R1 driver has to be the best driver released to date by Taylormade Golf. The sound of the driver is solid (not to loud a ping), and the feel is just as solid. The driver is a few yards longer due to a stronger flight and better control of spin (compared to R11 and R11S models).
