Is the TaylorMade M2 driver adjustable?

Yes, the TaylorMade M2 driver is adjustable. The loft, lie angle as well as face angle support a dozen adjustments on the hosel in different ways based on individual preferences.

How to adjust the TaylorMade M2 driver?

The TaylorMade M2 driver set features two drivers comprising the TaylorMade M2 driver and the TaylorMade M2 D driver. Both drivers are equipped with adjustable hosels to support the four-degree loft sleeve adjustment.

The loft and lie angle change by 0.5° to 0.75° while the face angle changes by 1° to 2° from the standard setting with each click of the sleeve.

The loft and face angle change in both the positive and negative directions, while the lie angle changes in the negative direction.

The following steps walk you through the adjustment process of the TaylorMade M2 driver using the TaylorMade wrench that comes with the driver.

  1. Insert the wrench into the screw behind the driver’s clubhead. Then turn it counter-clockwise a few times until the screw becomes loose.
  2. Release the clubhead from its position over the club hosel.
  3. Line the arrowhead on the clubhead with any of the markings other than the STD LOFT marking on the adapter to set the desired loft. This will alter the lie angle and face angle accordingly.

The HIGHER and LOWER settings set the loft of the driver at the highest and lowest possible values respectively.

  1. Place your wrench into the screw again and turn in the opposite direction. The number of turns usually matches the number of turns done earlier.
  2. Stop the turning as soon as you hear a click sound. Turning beyond this stage can damage the driver.

The clubface closes when the loft is increased and opens when the loft is decreased. Therefore, the extent of closing or opening depends on how much the loft is increased or decreased.

The TaylorMade M2 driver with a 10.5° stated loft and the same 56° lie angle as well as all the three variants of the TaylorMade M2 D driver support the same twelve adjustments.

TaylorMade M2 driver lie angle settings

The lie angle of the TaylorMade M2 driver can be increased from the standard setting using the four-degree sleeve and the wrench that comes with the driver.

The steps mentioned below indicate how you can raise the standard 56° lie angle of the M2 driver.

  1. Insert the TaylorMade wrench into the big screw positioned at the rear of the head of the driver.
  2. Rotate it to the right until the screw is loose and you can lift off the clubhead easily.
  3. Do either Step 4 or Step 5 depending on how much the lie angle must be adjusted.
  4. Align the arrow marked on the clubhead with either the LOWER or HIGHER marking on the four-degree sleeve or hosel adapter.

Both these settings increase the lie angle by 2° to 58°. The difference is that the LOWER setting decreases the loft and opens the clubface by 4°. On the other hand, the UPPER setting increases the loft and closes the clubface by 4°.

  1. Align the arrow with any of the markings between the STD LOFT and LOWER markings, the LOWER and UPRT markings, the UPRT and higher markings or the HIGHER and STD LOFT markings.

These settings increase the lie angle marginally from the standard or previous setting.

  1. Fit the wrench into the same screw once again and turn the wrench to the left until a click sound indicates that you can stop the turning process.

Increasing the lie angle with a decrease in loft opens the clubface whereas increasing the lie angle with an increase in loft closes the clubface.

TaylorMade M2 driver upright setting

The upright setting of the TaylorMade M2 driver is straightforward. This can be done by using the UPRT setting on the adapter. This setting sets the lie angle of the driver at its highest value of 60°.

The steps given here help you in going about adjusting your TaylorMade M2 driver for an upright setting.

  1. Put the TaylorMade wrench into the screw positioned at the rear of the head of the driver.
  2. Do a few counter-clockwise turns of the wrench till the screw is loosened and the clubhead slides off easily.
  3. Set the arrowhead on the clubhead in line with the UPRT marking on the adapter of the club hosel.
  4. Replace the clubhead and turn the wrench the same number of times in the opposite direction until you hear the click sound to stop the turning action.

This setting is most beneficial to golfers who struggle to overcome repeated slices in their game. The clubface is directed to the left of the target and square when there is an impact. However, some players find that this setting makes them hook the ball because the driver’s heel is at a lower position than the toe. As a result, their swings are also less powerful and consistent.

TaylorMade M2 driver weight adjustment

The TaylorMade M2 driver has a fixed 4g screw weight at the lower back for both the 2016 and 2017 models. It’s recommended that this weight is left untouched if it doesn’t have to be changed.

The 2016 model supports four additional weight options comprising 6g, 8g, 10g and 12g. On the other hand, the 2017 model offers nine other weight choices that are 2g, 6g, 8g, 9g, 10g, 12g, 13g, 15g and 18g.

In addition, the standard weight can be removed from the M2 driver and replaced with the desired weight using the TaylorMade wrench that accompanies the driver.

The steps below show how to adjust the weight of the TaylorMade M2 driver.

  1. Insert the TaylorMade wrench into the screw weight and turn the wrench in the anticlockwise direction a few times till the weight becomes loose.
  2. Take the weight off and insert the weight based on the playing preference.
  3. Insert the wrench into the screw weight and turn it in the clockwise direction to tighten and secure it in place.
  4. Stop turning the wrench as soon as you hear a clicking noise.

If a heavier weight is used in place of the standard weight, the driver will have more moment of inertia. This will help golfers to achieve a high spin and launch angle while the distance is less.

However, if the replaced weight is lighter than the stock weight, the center of gravity increases and assists golfers in achieving more distance along with low launch angle and spin.

It’s ideal that the weight adjustment is done only after playing a few games with the stock weight and determining if it has to be changed. Also, the weight should be changed before or after a game and not during the game.

Finally, the weight should not be tightened by hand as it can become loose when you swing the driver and have a negative impact on your game.

TaylorMade M2 driver loft setting adjustment

The loft setting of the TaylorMade driver can be done to increase or decrease its stated loft. This will have an impact on the lie angle and face angle of the driver as well.

The steps below show you how to adjust the loft on a M2 driver.

  1. Put the TaylorMade wrench into the large screw at the back of the driver’s head.
  2. Turn yourwrench to the right position to loosen the screw and remove the clubhead.
  3. Reseat the clubhead such that the arrowhead marked on it is aligned with any of the markings on the hosel adapter other than the STD LOFT or the UPRT marking. These two markings do not make any change to the stated loft.

The LOWER and HIGHER markings decrease and increase the stated loft by 2°to the lowest and highest possible values. The other markings change the loft in minor increments or decrements.

  1. Secure the clubhead in place by putting the wrench once again into the screw and turning to the left.
  2. End the turning action as soon as there is a click sound to avoid damage to the driver.

Increasing the loft helps players to achieve higher ball launch and more spin. However, they will have to compromise on distance. When the loft is decreased, you’ll increase ball distance while having less ball spin and launch.
