Summary: I bought this driver off the rack in '04. 10.5, M.A.S.2 65 stiff shaft. I am 60, shoot high 70's to low 90's, swing speed 100-105. I am long for my age and skill level (250-280 yds). My 150 club is an 8-iron. This is my favorite club, of all time. I love the 440 cc head.
Summary: Love this driver. Sounds and feels solid. The slightly smaller head size makes it more workable than the 460cc monsters that are the norm today. Bought one when I first started playing 6 years ago and sold it right away because I did not realize what I had, bought a used one later from clubfinders.
Summary: My wife purchased this driver for me. My first TaylorMade product, and I can tell you this is probably the best driver thats ever been created! I've swung many and none allow the control, comfort and sheer distance of this one. BEST IN CLASS- BEST IN SHOW- BEST IN GOLF
Summary: I have used this club since 2004 when I purchased a new set (17 at the time). Everything was custom made with x100 shafts in the irons, but they didnt custom the driver. I hit this driver 300 average, and it is 7 years old.
Summary: Very small sweet spot, not forgiving, what distance, if hit is not perfect bye bye ball. Please avoid this club, it is a total shame to Taylormade's lineup. I'll be in the market for a new driver. Any REAL recommendations?
Summary: I got this driver with a full set of used clubs I bought. At first I wasnt too impressed. Like most people I have a pretty bad slice problem some days. I had been playing a Mizuno MX-560 and was just starting to get my slice under control.
Summary: I USED THE 580 TAYLORMADE FOR SOMETIME HAD SLICEING PROBLEMS .SINCE I HAVE CHANGED TO 580XD MY DRIVES ARE 20 TO 50 YARDS LONGER AND STRATE. I CAN SWING AS HARD AS I WANT AND STILL MAINTAIN CONTROL, IT HAS LOWERED MY SCORE A GOOD 5 TO 8 STROKES. A GREAT CLUB.
Summary: Ok I have had 3 of these clubs 2 10.5deg and a 9.5 deg. I bought them all second hand and I keep going back cause they are so good. I currently have an R9 and it sits on the shelf because I like my 580xd better. Pros, loong, fairly consistent on mis-hits.
Summary: for a club which you can pick up no on ebay for around 50-$100 depeneding on where you live, you are really only getting that kind of value. The xd, i found like alot of taylor made drivers, leaks distance.
Summary: I bought this club as a newbie to golf and sadly paid over $200 for it (it retailed for more but was a superseded model when I got it). I don't think I was ripped off, but it wasn't good value. Firstly I have to say I have hit some very good shots with this club.
