Following the success of our SLDR Mini fitting day, we’ve teamed up with TaylorMade again to offer six TG readers the chance to get fitted for a free SLDR S driver as part of a feature in the next issue of Today’s Golfer magazine.
This special event is taking place at TaylorMade’s new custom-fit suite at the Belfry, West Midlands, on Monday June 16th.
In the SLDR S, the two main performance benefits carry over from the original SLDR – a low, forward centre of gravity contributing to faster ball speeds and less backspin and the sliding weight in the sole to change the draw/fade bias by up to 30 yards. But loft on the S isn’t adjustable – instead, it will be offered in higher standard lofts of 10°, 12°, 14° and 16° (the highest-lofted TaylorMade driver ever) and it will retail for £279. It also has a silver crown and a black back section to aid alignment.
“It’s no secret that high launch and low spin maximise driver distance, but some players think that only Tour pros can benefit from lofting up. This is simply not true,” Benoit Vincent, Vice President of R&D, told TG. “By lofting up, you can generate serious distance gains regardless of swing speed with SLDR S, which has a low and forward CG, along with a sliding weight that assists shot shaping.”
We’ve got 6 places to give away and you must be free to attend at any time that morning. The 40-min slots will run from 9am through to 1pm. To enter, email Equipment Editor Joel Tadman at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following details. Entries close at midday on Thursday, June 12th. Good luck!
