A white headed option is now available in TaylorMade's SLDR driver, which will have lofts from 9.5-14° and retail at £349.

If you were a big fan of the white-headed R11 and RocketBallz drivers then you will be excited to hear that TaylorMade has announced the launch of a white SLDR driver.

Unlike TaylorMade’s last white driver, the R1, the new white SLDR doesn’t feature alignment graphics, but a more classical crown design that should appeal to a wider range of golfers.

As with previous generations, the contrast of the white crown and black face should help you align more accurately at address.

Brian Bazzel, TaylorMade’s Senior Director of Metalwood Product Creation, told GM: “Many golfers fell in love with white when it came out in 2011, and now we are delivering it with our low and forward CG for more distance when you loft up.”

The technology in the white SLDR is the same as the standard model, so a low and forward CG reduces unwanted spin for more distance and accuracy, while a sliding weight on the sole promotes up to 30 yards of shot shape adjustment.
