TaylorMade GAPR MID 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.


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.


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.


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?

  • Low-back CG for extreme distance with a high trajectory
  • Most traditional hybrid shaping
  • Dropped crown contour for lower CG and improved alignment
  • 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
  • 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

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 MID is an iron-inspired head with lots of forgiveness and its appearance, as well as flight characteristics, will be enjoyed by a wide range of players. It has an iron-inspired face, weight screw on sole and crown cutout creates low CG and extreme forgiveness, and mid-width sole.

First Swings:

After the ball did not turn over very much to the left with the GAPR HI I was a little shocked to find my first couple shots pulling to the left of the target line with the GAPR MID. The shots still never threatened a full-on hook, but the ball did tail left with longer carries. I really enjoyed the ball flight in general. With the ball slightly back in my stance the GAPR MID produced a penetrating trajectory that kept rising to a late apex.


The sound may be my one major gripe about foam filled clubs, it just isn’t all that exciting. The GAPR MID has a little bit heavy/clicky sound to it.


The GAPR MID can hit a wide range of trajectories. A ball played neutral or slightly forward in the stance created almost as high ball flight as the GAPR HI, but putting the ball slightly back in the stance gave me that desirable low trajectory but always rising flight.


Definitely longer than the GAPR HI, the penetrating ball flight and long carry of the GAPR MID will bridge the gap between many players’ woods and longest iron. High trajectory shots played more forward in the stance lost some distance, but not a lot.


Again, Speed Foam creates a unique feel at impact. There is a distinct firmness and softness at the same time. Purely struck shots feel cradled as they spring off the face. While the feedback is crystal clear, and I can tell where the ball struck on the face, it doesn’t create as exciting, or crisp, a feel as a forged iron or even non-foam filled distance iron.


The GAPR MID is still a little bit on the thick side and looks a bit like an iron-wood at address. It should give better players a lot of confidence. A full-width bottom line has white paint fill and contrasts nicely with the all black head. A cutout behind the top line once again helps align the ball with a subtle graphic. The sole is wide enough to fit both the speed slot and the weight screw, however since the GAPR MID is not as deep as the GAPR HI, the weight is closer to the club face and leading edge.


Before I even hit a shot, the GAPR MID already looked more like an iron than the GAPR HI. I moved the ball around in my stance and produced a couple of different trajectories and shapes. That versatility will suit a lot of players’ needs with a club like this. With the weight still on the sole to create a low CG and a more iron-like appearance than the GAPR HI, I venture to guess this head will be the most popular choice across the board.......More
