Review of the TaylorMade M3 Hybrid Rescue Club
The next generation of M3 is now on the market. The M3 hybrid is a very unique club that has been developed by TaylorMade to allow golfers to have a full face driver and a low center of gravity. The M3 is also designed to have a very forgiving and stable swing, which makes it the perfect club for golfers looking to improve their game.
The club has several downsides, including that it’s probably not the best choice if you have a slow swing speed. If you struggle to hit your 3-5 irons, you may want to go with the M4 hybrid. The M3, other than being an expensive hybrid, is a great club for someone with a low handicap.

Taylormade M3 Hybrid: Overview
In comparison to the M4 hybrid, the M3 Hybrid is the newer, more adjustable version of the M1. The first thing I noticed was that the head was silver instead of white, which made alignment much easier.
The M4 hybrid is a bit smaller than this one, and that will make it more difficult to hit, but it will also make it more workable with the ball.
In terms of look and feel, it was very similar to the M1.
Performance of the Taylormade M3 Hybrid
As compared to the old M1, I found the new M1 much easier to hit. For M3 fairway woods and drivers, it’s the same thing. They designed the M3 to be more versatile than the M1, which was primarily designed for professionals.
It was nice to see Taylormade make the M3 so any low-to-mid handicapper could use it. I found the M1 hard to hit consistently, so it was nice to see Taylormade make the M3.
I found the M3 to produce less spin than the M4, which wasn’t ideal for my swing. The spin of the M4 helps me with my slower swing speed.
What are the benefits and disadvantages?
The M3 would be ideal for golfers with a low to mid handicap who have a fast swing. I think the M4 version would be better suited for those with a slower swing speed like me.
Furthermore, the M3 feels more like metal than the M4, which is more like wood. With the M3, it will be easier to move the ball around (fade/draw).

|It was easier to hit than the M1.||The price is quite high.|
|It was much easier to align properly this time.||Slower swing speeds won’t benefit from this.|

- Durability rating: 7/10
- Personal score: 8/10
The club is ideal for fans of narrow-body hybrids or decent golfers who tend to pull hybrids left of the target, which doesn’t apply to many double-digit handicappers. Anyone choosing the M3 should be making use of the adjustable hosel and sliding sole weight to justify the extra cost compared to the excellent M4.
