When TaylorMade launched the M1 family of ‘unmetalwoods’ it was the striking seven-layer carbon composite crown that immediately grabbed the attention.
This carbon composite formed part of the multi-material construction that gave the range it’s M moniker and this has been extended to TaylorMade’s newest offering, the M2 driver, fairway and Rescue clubs.
The M2 range joins the M family to give golfers two options in the search for distance and forgiveness.
The M2 clubs are designed to deliver maximum forgiveness without sacrificing any distance by taking the weight savings from the carbon crown and redistributing the discretionary weight to the sole of the club for a low and slightly back centre of gravity (CG).
We’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on the new gear so here’s a summary of each of the clubs with links to our detailed reviews, complete with in hand pictures and video.
TaylorMade M2 Driver
The TaylorMade M2 driver features the same carbon composite crown design as the M1 and the lightweight construction has created 5g of total weight savings.
In the M1 these savings were used to develop the revolutionary T-Track system for personalised distance, but a quick look at the sole of the M2 shows the engineers have taken a different route.
The discretionary weight has been used by engineers to create a low and back CG that simultaneously delivers speed and forgiveness.
Forgiveness is maximised by three performance features designed to protect ball speeds on off centre strikes: inverted cone technology, a redesigned Speed Pocket and increased moment of inertia.

TaylorMade M2 Fairway
The M2 Fairway follows in the driver’s footsteps with 5g of weight savings from the multi-material carbon crown being used to create an extremely low CG in a shallow head that offers versatile playability from the tee and fairway.
Delivering exceptional distance with superior look and feel the M2 fairway features a new fluted hosel design that gives an improved sound and feel.
A redesigned Speed Pocket significantly increases the flexibility of the area low on the club face and is the most flexible Speed Pocket TaylorMade has designed. This increased flex translates into a higher COR and faster ball speeds for shots struck low on the face.

TaylorMade M2 Rescue
The M2 Rescue has a redesigned open channel Speed Pocket to provide maximised distance and forgiveness.
A low spinning hybrid it has a low centre of gravity and creates a hot trajectory for longer and more consistent shots.
The low profile shaping is similar to that of the fairway wood giving it a confidence boosting easy to hit look at address.
