TaylorMade M3/M4 Drivers

Puetz Golf Price: M3 – $499.99 | M4 – $429.99

After crunching data from half a million shots, TaylorMade researchers noted that the traditional driver face design — a slight, consistent bulge from heel to toe and crown to sole — was causing shots high on the toe and low on the heel (the most common misses for amateur golfers) to fly farther off-target than they should.

In response, the new “twist face” on the M3 and M4 drivers is curved such to guide those misses back towards the target — reducing the average high-toe mis-hit from eight yards to one, and the average low-heel mis-hit from six yards to two. Combined with a redesigned speed slot that includes two thin stabilizing bars (allowing the face to be milled thinner for faster ball speeds) and a thinner crown and sole, the M3 and M4 are both faster and more forgiving than last year’s M1 and M2 (just ask DJ, who crushed a 433-yard drive with his new M4 at Kapalua in January, coming just three inches from a hole-in-one).

The M3 features a new, Y-shaped channel with two moveable weights that allow for more 13,000 unique setups, while the M4 swaps the channel for a deeper CG, making it the most forgiving of the two. See a Puetz rep to figure out which one’s the best fit for you.
