PHOTOS: 2017 TaylorMade Golf M2 drivers


The 2017 TaylorMade M2 line of drivers -- at least heads of those products -- have made their way to some golf shops. And, since no one keeps a secret anymore, photos have found their way online, sparking conversation about the potential changes to the M2 line for next year.

The 2017 TaylorMade M2 driver takes on a different look, at least on the sole, than its first-generation predecessor. Where the first M1 and M2 didn't look all that different, the M2 takes on its own character for 2017, with a unique set of graphics and an apparent emphasis on driver acoustics.

The SpeedPocket returns from the first generation of the driver, and the weight at the back center of the sole indicates a low and back center of gravity will carry over as well.

As it turns out the M2, released in 2016, proved to be the choice of tour pros. It delivers low spin and lots of distance in a package pros can use.

In photos leaked to GolfWRX, there is a second head, called the D-Type. However, it's unclear what difference there may be with the 2017 M2.
