How much is Jason Day's driver worth?
There was no Open Championship letdown for Jason Day. A week after falling just short at St. Andrews, he rallied on Sunday to capture the RBC Canadian Open for his second victory of the season.
Day dominated the field off the tee – his drives on par-4 and par-5 holes at Glen Abbey averaged 321 yards – that's 22 yards longer than the field's average drive of 299 yards, according to the PGA Tour. And his drive on No. 17 in the final round traveled 386 yards, where the average tee shot on that hole went 314 yards. Afterward, Day said, that was the longest drive he'd ever hit.
Day hit those prodigious tee shots with an R15 driver, which TaylorMade calls the most technologically advanced driver it's ever created. The white-headed R15 – there is also a black version – features a lower and more forward center of gravity than previous models to promote higher launch and lower spin. The Front Track system, TaylorMade says, performs like a Speed Pocket to reduce spin and increase the size of the sweet spot, while a pair of movable sole weights help golfers achieve their desired ball flight.
The R15 made its debut at retail earlier this year, and carries a suggested retail price of $429.99. It currently has an estimated trade-in value of $168.19 and an estimated resale value of $305.80, according to the PGA.com Value Guide and Trade-in Network.
