Justin Rose Career Highlights Video


Driver: TaylorMade M3 (8.5 degrees)

Shaft: Mitsubishi Tensei CK 60TX

The TaylorMade M3 driver utilizes innovative Twist Face technology engineered to reduce dispersion and deliver consistently straighter tee shots. Twist Face technology also increases loft in the high-toe and decreases loft in the low-heel for more consistency on off-center hits. The M3 also features a Hammerhead Slot which enhances the sweet spot and increased ball speed for more distance. The Y-Track system allows you to move weight and adjust your settings for optimal trajectory and maximum forgiveness.

Key Features

  • The wide sole channel delivers more distance by flexing at impact, acting as a springboard to launch the ball off the face with higher speed and less spin.  
  • The face insert is made of a thick center and thin perimeter and is located in the heel and toe of the club which helps maximize forgiveness.  
  • The 16 loft and lie combinations offers players with the perfect combination to customize their driver to their liking.
  • New face curvature w/corrective face angle on off center hits, to reduce side spin & deliver straighter shots. Provides more loft in high toe & less loft in low heel for more consistent spin
  • New sole slot implemented into our most adjustable driver for the first time. Reinforced outer portions of the slot allow for a lighter, more flexible face
  • The center portion of the slot increases ball speed low on the face & drops unwanted spin for more distance
  • The back y portion provides forgiving draw and fade options. Splitting the weights provides the ultimate in forgiveness
