The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

I have owned this club for over 2 years, and I consider it one of my favorites. I use it from the tee more often that I hit my driver. The powerful launch angle, exceptional distance, and spin control allows me to shape and execute the shot I want in the moment without sacrificing too much distance compared to a driver. Playing from the fairway can be tricky and you will experience less forgiveness than off the tee, but with practice you will find this club is a versatile club that will be a great addition to your quiver.

Ideal for
  • Control from the tee box
  • High ball flight with powerful launch
  • Unmatched feel
Not ideal for
  • Not a good option for beginners with low club head speed.

The TaylorMade SIM2 Max Fairway is designed to deliver a vast array of mid-handicap players maximum launch by employing a low center of gravity with a V Steel sole that cuts through any turf condition. The confluence of low face forgiveness and fast face technologies expand the sweet spot for uncompromised distance and accuracy.

Key Features:

  • V Steel with Ultra-Low CG – Constructed with an 80-gram V Steel sole improves turf interaction and versatility at impact, while tour-inspired shaping and center of gravity properties solicit high launch with low spin for explosive distance.
  • ZATECH Titanium with Twist Face – The Twist Face design overcomes inherent player mishit tendencies on an ultra-strong face material to accelerate ball speeds from a greater impact area.
  • Multi-Material Construction – Built with a light carbon crown, titanium body, and steel sole plate merges a multitude of materials to deliver improved launch performance with high MOI (moment of inertia or, in other words, resistance to twisting), stability and forgiveness.
  • Thru-Slot Speed Pocket – Increasing face flexibility to maintain ball speeds over more of the face, Thru-Slot Speed Pockets are engineered into the sole to proliferate distance on even low mishits.

The SIM2 Max Fairway wood is a really awesome club. Compared to a lot of other fairway woods on the market, the SIM 2 Max is easy to get in the air and control consistent shots with. It has a little higher launch compared to the SIM 2 Titanium, and in general, a slightly higher launch than other fairway woods... Read more

Matthew W owns this product
This fairway wood is as long and forgiving as any other I have ever owned, and it consistently produces a very straight ball flight that makes it stand out from others. I also very much like the way the silver piece on the top of the crown frames the ball at address. The sound and feel is explosive & solid.... Read more

What do you love about this product?

The SIM2 Max Fairway is a wonderful combination of aesthetics and performance. It has a higher launch and more moderate spin profile when compared to the standard SIM2 Fairway model. At address, the profile of the head looks very good leading to more confident swings. On the performance side, it has great distance coupled with an appropriate amount of spin that allow you to control the ball flight and have the ball stop more on the greens than other similar fairways.

Why did you choose this product?

There are a lot of great fairway wood options out there now, but the SIM2 was the optimal choice for me. I chose the SIM2 Fairway because it was able to provide me with plenty of distance both off the tee and off the fairway, while still maintaining optimal height and spin. The result is a fairway wood that I can control very well whether I need to hit the fairway, or hit a par 5 in 2 (or a long par 4). The previous fairway I had used was a bit lower launch and lower spin, making control more challenging. As soon as I hit a few shots with the SIM2 Fairway, it went right into my bag.

What was your favorite moment with this gear?

As great as the SIM2 Fairway is, I have had some fantastic moments with this club. The moment that sticks out as my favorite moment with this club would be during the club championship last summer at Lakewood Country Club. The 16th hole is a relatively long par 5 that takes two exceptional shots to reach the green. If you choose to take the green on, you have trees left, hazard long and right, and a bunker short. Additionally, the green is relatively shallow and is pretty significantly uphill, making holding the green very challenging even if you do hit a good shot. After a solid tee shot, I had 250 to the pin, uphill. I pulled out my SIM2 Fairway and hit an incredible shot. The ball had plenty of height and spin on it and managed to find the green, leaving me a 15-foot eagle putt that I made to win the match. Without a doubt, that was my favorite moment with the SIM2 Fairway.

Love this club

Posted on Aug 28, 2023
I'll start with this - I'm not a great golfer. But I can get home from 230 yards out with this club. Off of the tee or the ground - I hit it very well. Seems to be forgiving.

Bob knows his stuff!
5 /5
He was very understanding of my wants in a set of clubs for a beginner like myself and offered three personalized sets based on my price range and height. He gave me three different options each with their own pros and cons but all of them were greatly appreciated! Knowledgeable person who made purchasing my first set of clubs seamless!

5 /5
Sara recommended 3 choices for woods and irons. I settled on the TRS2 3W and TRS2 Hybrid with specific shafts she also recommended and the Golf Pride Tour Wrap G2 grips I preferred. I selected the Mizuno JPX923 Hot Metal Pro Irons and got the 4-PW and added the G, L and S wedges with the shafts Sara recommended and the same grips I preferred. This combo is the best I have ever hit providing me with great satisfaction almost each time I hit the ball as I still, occasionally, hit a bad shot but that’s on me and not the club selection. Sara really was spot on with her selection of clubs for me and I also was recommended the Scotty Cameron Phantom putter which is the best putter I have ever had. Thanks again Sara! Really appreciate your knowledge and help!

Mick was super friendly and helpful from the start. Being that we are both from St. Louis, we started out our interaction by talking about shared experiences there which really broke the ice and made me feel welcomed. As we continued on, Mick stuck with me as I went back and forth on decisions and took a couple weeks to make a purchase. When I finally did, he even threw me a deal with a free pack of balls! Great experience and I will be shopping with Mick again in the future.

Was searching for a nice, but simple/basic hat to use while out on the course. Was linked with Ted and relieved I was!! You never really know what to expect from websites anymore...is it a real person, is there some brand or type or quota. Not a worry here with Ted. Even for something as simple as a hat, got a quick response with no hassle or pressure. Even gained a recommendation from Ted on some golf balls, which I asked about during our chat. So, all-in-all, I am beyond happy with my experience and very grateful to have worked with Ted. I highly recommend anyone searching for anything related to golf to link up with Ted, you'll be both happy and relieved you did!! Appreciate your time, Ted!

Was only looking to get a couple of boxes of golf balls and was interested in ones that help with those of us who slice. Ted didn't try and upsell anything or press additional items, just addressed the ask and recommended a great item for my use! It's a tremendous relief to have someone actually help with no agenda or motive. Highly recommend Ted for anything golf related!!!!!!! Thank you, Ted!
