The SLDR S fairway has a shallower face and larger head size engineered to deliver distance and playability. Combine that with a stunning satin silver crown with black button-back for easy alignment and you have a club that inspires confidence and great results. -Todd Beach, Vice President of Product Development
The SLDR S fairway woods use the same low-forward center of gravity (CG) technology as the SLDR S driver to deliver higher launch, lower spin, and many more reachable par-5s.
I tested the SLDR S three-wood (15-degrees) at the TaylorMade product unveiling in Carlsbad, CA. The low profile sets up well at address, and the ball really moves off the clubface. Similar to the SLDR irons, it has a Speed Pocket, which promotes a faster ball speed. The technology and design of the three-wood lead to increases in both distance and confidence.
TaylorMade’s SLDR S fairway woods will be available in five different loft options beginning May 16th. The three-wood is 15-degrees, and the 3HL is 17-degrees. The five-wood is 19-degrees, the 5HL is 21-degrees, and the seven-wood is 23-degrees. Golfers with slower swing speeds will benefit from the HL versions of the three and five-woods that add a couple degrees of loft to increase the launch angle.
