In 2020, Taylormade had the hottest driver in golf, The SIM was aerodynamic, promoted favorable launch properties, and had one of the most talked-about face technology in golf. The SIM2, SIM2 Max and SIM2 Max•D, take the line's design and functionality to the next level, offering more forgiveness and a higher launch angle, with its new 'Forged ring construction'. Let's break it down:


To unlock a new dimension of forgiveness, TaylorMade engineers were forced to completely rethink how drivers are built from the ground up. By fixating on the process and materials, they discovered a hidden key in the form of a new design called Forged Ring Construction. Utilizing a lightweight and high-strength aluminum that’s precision milled, the adjoining feature unites the critical components of the driver's head into a singular force.

As the defining component of SIM2, SIM2 Max and SIM2 Max•D, the forged aluminium ring is one of four crucial elements of the unique construction – each serving a vital function that allows the driver to be forgiving, fast and powerful. The other modules are the carbon crown, carbon sole and milled back face cup. 



Traditional driver designs come with a trade-off, but TaylorMade journeyed beyond tradition to obtain power, speed, and forgiveness in a low spin driver. The reconstructed SIM2 delivers high MOI properties with a heavy 16g steel weight positioned on the Inertia Generator. The TPS Front Weight is strategically located behind the face to encourage optimal launch with low spin characteristics, delivering complete performance that is low on spin and high on forgiveness.​

SIM2 Max 

With an intense focus on speed and forgiveness, the SIM2 Max delivers high MOI properties with a heavy 24g tungsten weight positioned on the Inertia Generator. The TPS Front Weight is strategically located on the sole of the club to encourage the optimal mid-to-high launch with mid-to-low spin properties, delivering complete performance and max forgiveness.​

SIM2 Max•D

Traditional draw-bias drivers come with a trade-off, sacrificing forgiveness for a right-to-left ball flight. The all-new SIM2 Max•D features a repositioned Inertia Generator that’s closer to the heel, encouraging a heel CG that’s low and back for more forgiveness – designed to deliver a higher launch with the largest, most forgiving face in the SIM2 line-up. The end result, a draw-biased driver without compromise.


SIM2, SIM2 Max and SIM2 Max•D will be available at retail on February 19, 2021. SIM2 has an RRP of ¥76,000 - ¥94,000 and will be offered in 8°, 9° and 10.5° lofts. Shaft offerings include Mitsubishi Tensei AV Raw Blue 60 and Project X’s HZRDUS Smoke RDX Black 70, with numerous custom shaft options available at no additional cost. They come stock with Golf Pride’s Z-Grip (47g).
