Just as the February issue of Golf Monthly was having its finishing touches added we received the first official information about the exciting launch of the new TaylorMade R11 driver. We immediately stopped the presses to give you an exclusive first look at the most anticipated driver of 2011.

The main story behind the TaylorMade R11 is the introduction of a striking white clubhead that will make this TaylorMade’s most recognisable driver ever. The contrast between the black face and white crown has been designed to help players become more acutely aware of their alignment at address, while also giving the driver stand-out shelf appeal.

The white finish also makes, TaylorMade says, the 440cc clubhead look slightly larger and easier to hit than other similar sized clubs on the market.

There is also important new technology at play within the R11 as it offers three areas of independent adjustability. Players will now have the option to separately customise the face angle, loft and weighting of the driver to find a combination that is tailored to their own individual games.

The combination of these three adjustable elements means the R11 can be set up in 48 different ways. TaylorMade’s tour players are currently testing the R11 and you can expect to see many of them put this new white driver into play at the beginning of 2011.

The Golf Monthly Test Team will shortly be putting the driver to the test and you can read our reviews and verdicts in March’s issue.
