TaylorMade M:34 Headcover???

This looks like it is a legit TM headcover with the magnetic design, but I cannot find out anything on it. Anyone know the story? Thanks!

    I’m guessing “34” stands for 34 years. It would make sense that all those numbers are years. Any story behind how you acquired it?

    I found it at a Goodwill here in Eugene. I have spent a pretty good deal of time trying to find the significance of those years. Also, M was not used until 2015 with that new line of clubs, so it is unusual to see it used here. That is assuming this was made in 2013.
    My guess is that it is for a specific tourney that has been won with their clubs. Not too many WITB’s from 79’ to confirm that theory 😂

    Did you try contacting TaylorMade?

    Do you know what their account is? Is it just @TaylorMade?

    I did find some info:
    1979 was the first year of their metal woods
    1984 was the first full year of the Burner on Tour
    1994 was the bubble shaft
    2000 was the 300 Series
    2004 was the R7 quad
    2011 was when they released burner Superfast and R11 with white
    2013 RocketballZ and R1

    My guess is that the years are iconic releases of drivers. I would also love to know why they think of the 2011 and 2013 years equally with the other years if my assumption is correct.

    I'm going to assume that the dates correspond to majors won with their driver?

    Unlikely. In 2000 VJ won The Masters with a Mizuno driver and Tiger won the other 3 with a Titleist driver.

    If that's the case, and it obviously is, then the cover must be custom for some other reason entirely.

    I had the same thought initially. TM didn’t get a win in a major with their drivers until later in the 80’s, however.
    I am fairly confident that it has to do with “new technology” and not wins. I am not certain about all the dates though. I think I have a few of the dates correct in my list above. I would love confirmation from @taylormade though!

    TM Incorporated in 1979
    TM founder Gary Adams awarded the National Golf Association man of the year in 1984.
    Solomon S.A. also bought TaylorMade in 1984.
    Founder Gary Adams dies 1/2/2000

    Other dates, TM will know. I don’t think it’s completely tech related, I think it’s a Gary Adams/TaylorMade tribute.

    That head cover was made in 2013, when the company was 34 years old. M:34

    I don’t think that’s the name they post under, judging by the profile when you click on it. It might be @taylormadegolf.

    What's the meaning of their "R", "SLDR" and "M" family drivers/woods?

    It’s code that means they’ll have new drivers out every 3 months making you feel yours is obsolete shortly after you buy yours.
