TAYLORMADE Golf have launched the new SIM2, SIM2 Max and SIM2 Max•D fairway woods, along with their expanded hybrid line that comes in the form of the Tour-inspired SIM2 Rescue and SIM2 Max Rescue.
For 2021, TaylorMade refined their breakthrough technology to drive the centre of gravity low to promote enhanced forgiveness and optimal launch conditions.
“In the world of golf club engineering, we fight for millimeters because those small changes can lead to big results, ” said TaylorMade’s senior director of Product Creation, Metalwoods, Tomo Bystedt.
“With the SIM2 Titanium fairway woods, we repositioned the CG (centre of gravity) a mere 12.1mm from the ground. That delivers a CG projection that’s absolute centre face along with increased MOI for more forgiveness, compared to last year’s model.
“We’ve gone low across the entire line of 2021 fairways, so golfers can go higher.”
Improving on all the elements that made SIM fairways a leader in distance, TaylorMade added a new level of forgiveness in the SIM2 Titanium, SIM2 Max and SIM2 Max•D fairways.
Powered by the iconic VSteel design that promotes enhanced turf interaction and playability from various lies, the improved weight distribution delivers pinpoint centre of gravity projection for optimal MOI and launch properties.
The more compact SIM2 Titanium fairway wood features a 170cc head for a Tour-inspired look at address while still maintaining a generous face size – combining properties of playability and forgiveness. It features a lightweight carbon construction with the revolutionary ZaTech Titanium Face and a heavy 80g steel sole weight. The strategically positioned weight creates an ultra-low CG that creates 5% greater MOI than its predecessor.
The impact of the original SIM Max Rescue was felt at every level of the game, from the amateur ranks to the world’s best.
Building on that success, TaylorMade have expanded their hybrid line for 2021 to include the SIM2 Rescue and SIM2 Max Rescue.
Fueled by the Tour pedigree of its predecessor, the SIM2 Rescue was designed with insights from world number one Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and other stars.
