As Golfweek reported on Monday, several new drivers were added to the USGA’s List of Conforming Driver Heads, including the yet-to-be-released TaylorMade Qi10 LS. While TaylorMade has not released any official information about the Qi10 LS, based on the USGA notes and images, we now see it has a sliding weight in the sole, a carbon fiber face and a sole geometry that is similar to the SIM, SIM 2, Stealth and Stealth 2 drivers.
On Tuesday, as Rory McIlroy was preparing for this week’s DP Tour World Championship in the United Arab Emirates, he said that while he wanted to win the tournament, it might serve as a great place to test the Qi10 LS in competition and that he was considering using it.
On Thursday, as he showed up on the first tee of the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates, the Qi10 LS was under his familiar dog head cover. That gave on-site photographers a chance to take close-up photos of the driver and for us to try to get more details on it.
Here are some close-up looks of the TaylorMade Qi10 LS.
