Trottie Golf’s top five TaylorMade drivers of all time

While Chris Trott was beginning his career in golf as an assistant professional at The Belfry in the heart of England he was dreaming, like so many in that position, of making it to the promised land of playing on Tour. Although Plan ‘A’ of making it as a player didn’t come to fruition, he has forged a path to the Tour as the Director of Sports Marketing for TaylorMade, and regularly finds himself on the company’s Tour truck at elite events around the world. In this feature we look at Trottie’s top five TaylorMade drivers of all time are…

“It obviously changes with the timeline, Number five, I would go as far back as the R510 TP, which sounded amazing,” he said, “that was back when McGinley was using it. I spent a lot of time with him and the R510 TP was his workhorse. It came out with a low, flat flight and was an awesome driver.”

Number 5: TaylorMade R510 TP

“Then fourth I would go forward to the R7 Quad. That thing was on a different level. I remember I fitted one for Scott Drummond and that was only two weeks before he won at Wentworth, which was a Cinderella story. We hit it out of the park with the R7 Quad.”

Number 4: TaylorMade R7 Quad

“Skipping forward a few more years to my third favourite, the Burner SuperFast, this is the one that Shane Lowry played with and there was a lot to learn from it. It was very quick for what it was meant to be.”

Number 3: TaylorMade Burner SuperFast

“Moving into the newer stuff, the carbon crown for me was awesome and the M5 was just phenomenal, that would be my second favourite.”

Number 2: TaylorMade M5

“Then number one for me would have to be the newest SIM because I didn’t think the M5 could be improved – but I feel they have done just that with the inertia generator of the SIM.”

Number 1: TaylorMade SIM (Shape In Motion)
