TaylorMade GAPR LO Hybrid

Bridge the Gap

GAPR™ introduces a new category of golf club, designed to fill the gap between your longest playable iron and your shortest metalwood. Featuring three unique shapes (GAPR™ HI, MID, and LO), you can choose your preferred head design to bridge the gap in your long game.

SpeedFoam

Each GAPR™ club benefits from TaylorMade's revolutionary SpeedFoam™ technology, which has been injected into each clubhead to enhance ballspeed and feel—delivering performance unlike any other utility club.

Adjustability

Our easily adjustable Loft Sleeve™ provides even more options to tweak the loft, lie, and trajectory to find your perfect GAPR™ distance. Use the Loft Sleeve™ to dial in your yardage and/or make subtle adjustments as your swing evolves.

Forgiveness

Speed Pocket™ technology in each GAPR™ model produces hotter launch conditions for enhanced distance, forgiveness, and playability on low-face strikes.

Which GAPR Is Right For You?

GAPR HI
  • Low-back CG for extreme distance with a high trajectory
  • Most traditional hybrid shaping
  • Dropped crown contour for lower CG and improved alignment
GAPR MID
  • Ultra-low CG for extreme distance with a mid-high trajectory
  • Iron-inspired face profile to inspire confidence
  • Medium-wide sole for ease of play and versatility
GAPR LO
  • Low-forward CG for extreme distance with a penetrating trajectory
  • Smaller, "players" profile for excellent shot-shaping and workability
  • Mid-thin sole width provides maximum versatility and flight control

Club Tested: 3 Hybrid; 19° KBS HYBRID 80 Stiff

The GAPR lineup features three distinctly different head styles, the HIMID and LO. All three heads feature a thin C300 steel face, a hollow-clubhead construction filled with TaylorMade’s SpeedFoam for increased ball speed and overall feel, a strategically placed weight screw designed to precisely locate the CG in specific areas of the clubhead to create desired trajectories, and a Speed Pocket to enhance forgiveness on low strikes. A loft sleeve gives players ultimate setup control allowing +/- 1.5° of loft adjustability that concurrently adjusts the lie.

The LO, with its mid-thin sole and elevated CG, will appeal to players with strong, high mph swings who want to produce a controlled, low, piercing ball flight off the tee and from the fairways. It has full versatility and flight control, low, forward CG for penetrating trajectory, and mid-thin sole and small shape suited to the better player's eyes.

First Swings:

Similar to the GAPR MID my first few shots with the GAPR LO had a bit of a left turn, but there was something immediately different about this head compared to the other two. The weight screw for the GAPR LO is located on the back of the club, as versus the weight screws on the soles of the GAPR MID and HI. This adjustment of weight positioning raises the CG, which makes it tougher to elevate the ball. I found I really had to go after it to get this club to work. I can easily see how the pros were hitting 12’ apex stingers with the GAPR LO that ran 80+ yards after landing at Carnoustie.

Sound:

The thinner sole and less SpeedFoam fill give the GAPR LO a similar sound to the P790. Both are foam filled and have a minor click, but the sound was the most enjoyable of all three GAPR heads.

Launch:

The weight screw placement raises the CG compared to the GAPR MID and HI, and that gives this the lowest standard trajectory of the three. I was able to flight the ball higher when I wanted to, but I could tell the best-struck shots had a flatter, lower trajectory.

Distance:

Long. This is the GAPR model where you will see extended distances from carry plus rollouts.

Feel:

This was interesting for me. I liked the feel of the GAPR LO the most, even though it was more difficult to hit than the lower CG GAPR MID. The feel of the weight behind the club face as versus under the sole is more in line with what I’m accustomed to hitting with my players irons.

Looks:

The GAPR LO looks the most like a normal iron. It has a bit of a cutout behind the top line with an alignment graphic and a fullwidth bottom groove with white paint fill that contrasts the all black clubhead. The GAPR LO sole has the thinnest width sole of the GAPR heads and only has a speed slot that sits behind the leading edge.

Overall:

The GAPR LO is for the advanced players with high swing speeds (we’re talking 108+ mph driver swing speed), but if you have that kind of swing speed this club will flat out perform. It has enough forgiveness to hit from the fairway and is a potent weapon from the tee. All three heads can launch the ball and the GAPR LO can be hit high, however, your playing conditions will determine whether the GAPR LO would be a good addition to the bag or not........More
