Personalized Performance, Tour-Inspired Shape.
The M1 Rescue has been refined by extensive input from our athletes to be designed for the best players in the world. Similar to the original Rescue club from TaylorMade, the new M1 Rescue has classic, tour-inspired shaping that enables increased playability from a variety of lies on the course. In combination with 1.5 degree loft sleeve, the M1 Rescue also features two moveable weights (one 3g and one 25g) that can be set for neutral or fade bias to optimize shot shape and trajectory.

Designed and built to be the best performing golf products in the world, M1's engineers also sought the perfect blend of form and function in the club's aesthetics and club alignment.

TaylorMade M1 Fairway Wood Expert Review
Written By: Bob Gomavitz
The new Taylormade M1 Rescue, with its glossy black head features dual adjustable weights, as well as their Speed Pocket Technology behind the face. The M1 Rescue does not incorporate the new Carbon Fiber Technology like the driver and fairway metal because not enough weight reduction can be achieved. The weights come with a 25 gram weight and a 3 gram weight. When the 25 gram weight is centered behind the face it produces a Neutral position. Moving the 25 gram weight to the toe area creates a Fade bias position to offset the slight Draw tendencies that come from many hybrids on the market.
Off The Tee
I saw a higher than normal ball flight with more of a drop and stop trajectory. Moving the heavier weight towards the toe lowered the flight and reduced some spin to produce an increase of rollout.
Off The Deck
Just like off the Tee, I saw a higher that normal ball flight than I am used to. Most rescue or hybrid players prefer this type of shot because they want the club to perform like an iron when hitting into greens. This head definitely does that.
Out Of The Rough
The new head shape really works well from lies in the rough and is my choice over a fairway metal. The smaller sized head cut thru the rough with little toe grab.
Who's It For?
The new M1 is more of a Player’s Rescue (Hybrid) with its ability to create a strong fade bias, along with the drop and stop trajectory that allows for precision shot making into greens. The head is more along the Adams line which has been a popular players club for many years.
I found the new M1 Rescue to be easy to hit with a very solid feel and gave great feedback to my hands. The glossy black head, with an Adams inspired box toe area really stands out. I love that Taylormade added in some white along the backside and sole area, creating just the right combination of contrast against the dominant black head.
