TaylorMade Original One Mini Driver

To celebrate its 40th anniversary, TaylorMade created a new driver that blends retro style and logos with modern technologies from their lineup. With the release of the TaylorMade Original One Mini Driver, the legendary company pays tribute to their very first driver released back in 1979 called the Pittsburgh Persimmon.

The Original One Mini Driver is made for golfers struggle to wield the longer shaft lengths of modern drivers, especially golfers who get nervous about hitting a 3-wood without a tee. The Original One Mini Driver is built using a lightweight carbon composite crown and a 50-gram heavy steel sole plate, in addition to a titanium body and slim titanium face, allowing for a low center of gravity to produce a low spin and high launch. It adopts several design features from the M5, which helped Tiger Woods reign supreme at the Masters, and aims to provide more distance for control-oriented golfers. The club comes with either 11.5 or 13.5 degrees of loft along with an adjustable hosel, placing it somewhere between a 3-wood and a driver for most golfers. You can expect to see the Original Mini Driver at your local golf store starting this May for $400.
