Over 30 years have passed since TaylorMade unveiled their first ever driver into the market, and as you can see, a lot can happen in three decades. The M1, released in 1980, has the distinction of being the first metalwood to feature a traditional headshape, inspired by the persimmon drivers that had come before. As the years progressed, TaylorMade continued to innovate and push the envelope; creating drivers with orange heads, offering multiple cc volume options, and even adding moveable weights and fully adjustable heads to promote customized ball flight, launch, and workability. Recently, we’ve seen a boom in TaylorMade’s unique white, or “ghost,” head color, first seen in the R11 and SuperFast 2.0 lines, and showcased in the newly launched RocketBallz and R11S series. In the infographic below, you can follow TaylorMade’s progression from up and coming equipment manufacturer of the Pittsburg Persimmon, to an industry leader in technology and innovation that has culminated with the release of the RBZ line of drivers.
