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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I had neck/shoulder surgery recently and I lost a ton of distance. I needed to find a driver that I can swing and get some of my back. I went to Golf Galaxy and tried the R1 and the SLDR. I hit the R1 really nice and was impressed with it. I hit it with good trajectory, ball speed, spin, control & distance. The SLDR not so well. I really struggled with it. The R1 was the way to go for me. I'll never hit the ball as far as I used to again, but the R1 makes it possible to shorten some holes still.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different from what I thought They had this driver at my club and the pro asked me if I wanted to try it out. I thought this driver wouldn't be good. But I was proved wrong. It hits good and the noise it makes is not as sharp as the r11s. The adjustablility is great and I can fit it to my swing. Another thing that surprised me were the graphics. I thought they would be irritating but they were actually sharp and they suited my eye nicely. Overall a really good driver.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Drive for the Price I was hesitant in buying another driver. I had gotten used to hitting with my Callaway Big Bertha that I had for years. When I saw them drop the price on the R1, I decided to check it out. I do not regret buying it. I love the driver and the set up in store helped me figure out the best combination for my swing. There are a possible 188 combinations with all the setting that come with the Driver. I highly recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome lot, hot face 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great driver - great service at golf galaxy I recently went in to check out the R1 as it was on sale - and after doing some research, seemed like the best value out there. It is very easy to adjust - looks great - swings great. After setting up with a stiff shaft, draw bias, and 12 degree loft, I was hitting 40-50 yards further. Hope that keeps up on the course. Jamie at the Amherst, NY store was a great help in getting the right club and setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This club is incredible! A fully adjustable head and light weight, beautiful design this club can hit a ball a mile ( with the right swing) I'm not a great golfer but this club has increased my distance and helped me to hit straighter. I liked it so much I bought one for my boyfriend and he loves his too. i can't keep him away from the driving range since he got it. I would recommend this club to anyone

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Club I really enjoy the looks and the feel of this club. I've played around with some of the adjustability, and it definitely made a difference. My only complaint is that the stock shaft is a bit soft for my swing. I've swung a friend's R1 with a stiff shaft, and I had much better performance. Overall, It's a great club, you'll just have to set it up for your swing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the Best Driver Ever Made By Any Manufacturer 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.
