    I don't know. did they sell it in America, because if they did, there is bound to be a legal version of it.

    My suggestion would be to speak to your pro or competition secretary first. If they don't know I'd contact the R&A via e-mail (or check their website)

    Re: Taylormade burner 860 Ti drivers, all illegal?

    Quite often with TM drivers, they stamp max on the front face, in the top RH corner. Drivers stamped max are non conforming. Certainly for the R7 this was the case. My R7 was bought in the states, and has R7 stamped there instead. This is still a conforming driver.

    The bloke may not be a cheat yet.

    In my opinion it is illegal. If there was a legal version you would see a pictures of both conforming and non conforming models highlighting the differences on the R&A website, as with the R7 model highlighted above.

    Yep, he's a cheat. I have checked the R and A and also the TM website where TM list it as non conforming. TM don't identify a conforming version, which they do if one exists.

    I thought as much, Im going to mention to the professional and see what he thinks, Its not sour grapes however a thread on here last month regarding something similar has got me thinking.

    I take it you didn't win the game then.

    I know it is cheating, but to be honest, he would probably hit it at least as well, if not better if he bought a new driver.

    Trouble is, there must be loads of people who haven't updated yet, and they do need to be dug out and made to change. Rules are rules after all, even if there is no advantage. Talk to the pro or general manager and see what they can do for the future.

    So far I don't think this has occured at my club.
