First Worldwide Win for New SLDR Driver
(CARLSBAD, CALIF.) – Sleeping on a PGA Tour 54-hole lead for the first time in his career, Henrik Stenson played a TaylorMade SLDR driver and posted a 2-under 68 to win the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola and the FedExCup.
In addition to receiving the new SLDR, TaylorMade also built Stenson an R1 with the same specs as his last gamer to offer the chance at a complete comparison test on the range at East Lake. Not surprisingly, the SLDR clearly outperformed the lower-lofted R1 driver, knocking off 400 RPM of spin and averaging 10 yards longer on the launch monitor. It went straight in the bag Thursday.
With the three stroke victory, Stenson becomes the first European to win the FedExCup in its seven-year history.
