$399 (was $549)

The smaller head size of the LST employs a 17-gram CG shifter with three settings (Draw, Neutral, Fade) to fit the launch conditions best suited to the golfer’s swing and desired ball flight.

3-Wood: TaylorMade BRNR Mini driver (Project X HZRDUS T1100 Hand Crafted shaft)

TaylorMade BRNR Mini Custom Driver

REIGNITING YOUR GAME The BRNR Mini Driver is the first of its kind to feature Movable Weight Technology. It provides distance, control and playability, making it ideal for golfers who prioritize accuracy off the tee or struggle with traditional drivers. MULTI-MATERIAL CONSTRUCTION WITH SPLIT MWT The combination of carbon fiber, titanium and steel provide the foundation for incredible sound, feel and flight with striking cosmetics. The split weights allow golfers to switch between the standard setting (13g in the back) for balanced performance, and the low spin setting (13g in the front) for a piercing trajectory and increased roll out. PRECISE TURF INTERACTION The K-SOLE design features a unique “K” shape, which helps the club glide smoothly through the turf while reducing resistance and promoting a consistent strike. This enables golfers to have “driver off the deck” distance with the consistency often found in higher lofted fairway woods. TOUR PROVEN TECHNOLOGIES Twist Face®, Thru-Slot Speed Pocket™ and the 4° Loft Sleeve provide the ultimate suite of technologies. Twist Face helps golfers overcome inherent mis-hit tendencies for straighter shots, while the Speed Pocket is engineered to maximize ball speeds and add forgiveness on low-face strikes. The 4° Loft Sleeve allows golfers to fine tune loft and face angle for optimum flight. DESIGNED TO INSPIRE The BRNR Mini Driver, the newest member of the Burner™ family, pays homage to the late-90s Burner drivers, specifically the Ti Bubble 2, featuring copper hues, retro inspired logos and a component package that oozes nostalgia and pulls at the heartstrings.
