How does the 2017 M2 compare to the original model? This was a job for our anonymous big hitter...

Equipment: TaylorMade 2017 M2 driver v TaylorMade 2016 M2 driver
Our TaylorMade 2017 M2 driver v TaylorMade 2016 M2 driver test took place at the Golf Shack at Moor Allerton in Leeds.

We had already reviewed the 2017 M2 driver on a ‘first hit’ basis at the launch event in Florida but wanted to do a more in-depth comparison.

It was definitely a job for our anonymous big hitter.

TaylorMade 2017 M2 driver v TaylorMade 2016 M2 driver – The methodology
We took a 9.5˚ head of both the 2017 M2 driver and 2017 driver and used the same Project X Hzrdus 65 Yellow shaft in each.

Our anonymous big hitter hit a range of shots with both drivers and the data was captured using Trackman.

The test took place under the watchful eye of our resident pro James Whitaker.

On the day, conditions were freezing cold and very foggy.

TaylorMade 2017 M2 driver v TaylorMade 2016 M2 driver – The technology
There’s a sunken area in the toe which allowed TaylorMade to make the 2017 have a larger footprint and inspire more confidence at address.

They have also been able to improve the vibrations inside the head to create a better sound and feel off the face.

A new speed pocket behind the face is more three times more flexible than the in the 2016 M2.

The new lower density 9-1-1 Titanium body and six-layer carbon composite crown allowed for 25g of discretionary mass to be relocated low and back in the sole of the club.

This makes the club forgiving, stable and high-launching.
