The TaylorMade R9 TP Driver represent the most technologically advanced driver in the company’s history, building on and improving the innovations that made the r7 range such a massive hit with golfers. The R9 TP uses the brand new Flight Control Technology (FCT) which allows the golfer to change the face angle, lie angle and loft of the R9 TP by using a simple wrench. Using a simple bolt positioned in the clubhead the R9 TP can be used in eight different positions and golfers can change position in seconds. This adaptability allows the R9 TP to promote shots which are higher, carry further and move right to left, which are lower, controlled and move left to right or which are neutral, mid height and straight. This makes the R9 TP one of the most workable and adaptable clubs on the market. Tournament pro’s regularly have their TaylorMade drivers tweaked but the R9 is one of the first clubs to offer this lever of control to every golfer.
Movable Weight Technology also plays a big part in the R9 TP driver with three weight ports in the clubhead and each driver coming with one 16 gram and two 1 gram weights. By changing the weights to help promote draws, fades or straight shots golfer actually have access to 24 different driver types with just one R9 TP. The TaylorMade R9 TP Driver has been designed to reflect the very best of classic golf club design mixed with the modernity for which TaylorMade are famed. The clubhead incorporated Ultra-Thin-Wall technology and the triangular shape promotes high MOI. Combined with the Inverted Cone Technology that has impressed across the TaylorMade range these development help make the R9 TP a club that leads the golfing world in technological advance but which is also incredible forgiving and easy to hit.

Average rating for this product from 1 reviews
We were very impressed with the TaylorMade R9 TP driver and we felt that the adjustments you can make to the club were very simple and easy to use. We would recommend using FCT to adjust the shaft before getting the flight you want by changing the MWT weights. The R9 TP has a slightly more triangular shape than the R7 model and the impact feel was very good. We were also impressed by the stiffer and heavier Fujikura Motore F1 graphite which comes with the R9 TP. Although the TP option costs around £50 more than the normal R9 we really think the shaft is worth that extra investment for the better player.
