TaylorMade Releases BRNR Mini Driver Copper

CARLSBAD, CA – Drawing inspiration from the iconic late-90s Burner™ drivers,
the all new BRNR Mini Driver Copper offers a contemporary twist
on a timeless design. Its distinctive copper styling, retro logos,
and meticulously crafted components, evokes nostalgic memories
of the ‘good ol days’, while blending heritage and modern innovation.

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.

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.

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.

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.
