GOLFMAGIC hosted its third Reader Day of 2014 in association with TaylorMade at the TaylorMade Performance Lab at The Belfry.

Three of our readers - Bill Gibbins, Gareth Roberts and Wes Nuttall - were each fitted for their new SLDR drivers by Liam McDougall, TaylorMade European Performance Lab & Centre Manager, and then lofted up to gain some significant distance gains.

Review: TaylorMade SLDR Driver

Between our three readers, there was a phenomenal total distance gain of 95 yards! The results of lofting up (see table below) to a 12-degree SLDR driver, as was the case in this reader day for Gareth, Wes and Bill, provided them with higher launch angles, dramatically lower spin rates and incredible distance gains.
