TaylorMade was started in 1979 by Gary Adams. Adams was the inventor of the metalwood. As the name would suggest woods used to be made out of hardwood. Advances in technology however have allowed the use of very strong metals in the construction of woods. TaylorMade was founded by counting on the assumption that metalwoods would be something that will change the game of golf forever. The assumption was correct, TaylorMade has been consistently a leading brand when it comes to golf equipment since those first metal woods. They have continued to come up with great innovations.
In the late 90s TaylorMade was acquired by Adidas and a new era in the history of golf drivers began. The company was given a new direction in order to take over the market for golf drivers. It was able to achieve that goal right away and now it is the leading driver that is chosen and bought by more professionals and hobbyists thatn any other in the market. Just to give you an idea of how dominant TaylorMade drivers are it has been said that there are more professionals in the PGA tour who prefer to use TaylorMade than any other brand. But the company also makes irons, wedges, golf balls, and hybrids.
If you are thinking abut shopping for some golf clubs then here are some of the product offerings of TaylorMade:
TaylorMade R7 Driver
The TaylorMade R7 425 driver has a face that is slightly closed which can give you an increase in confidence and the accuracy that you can achieve with it. The design has also been made with an aim to be pleasing to the eye. This is one of the most highly regarded drivers to have come out in recent years. You can buy it quite cheaply for around $100 to $200.
TaylorMade Burner Super Fast 2.0 Driver Men
This driver has a white crown that can help reduce glare. It has a head made from titanium and a shaft that is longer than other comparable drivers but is also a lot lighter than anything that you can find today. It has a very large face for more forgiveness. You can buy this driver for about $400 new or less than half that if you go for gently used.
You can also check out the great golf accessories made by the company. They have gloves, bags, and caps. The TMX stand bag for example is one of the best products of its kind that is available today. It has 5 pockets where you can keep all the golf gear that you need and one of those is reserved for your valuables, and is lined with velour. It also has the specially designed pivot shoulder strap system that allows you to handle the bag with ease. This bag has that rare combination of style and functionality that is rarely achieved. You will never have a hard time carrying this across the golf course. To complement it and your game, you can use the Tour Preferred Glove. It uses a very thin leather and is equipped with pleats to make handling even smoother.
