JUSTIN ROSE is one of many TaylorMade Tour professionals testing out the new TaylorMade SLDR 430 ahead of 2014.

TaylorMade yesterday announced the release of the SLDR 430 – a more compact version of the SLDR 460, currently the No.1 driver on the PGA & European Tour.

Packaged in a 430cc club head with a modern-classic shape and rich charcoal-grey crown, the company expects better players to flock to the 430 version, which features a smaller Tour-inspired head to promote improved workability.

“We put low forward CG in a smaller head to make a driver that Tour pros love,” said Brian Bazzel, TaylorMade’s Senior Director of Product Creation for Metalwoods. “SLDR 430 makes it easier to shape shots without sacrificing distance.”
