Justin Rose got to Augusta National early this year to prepare for the first major of 2014. The 2013 U.S. Open champion is looking for his second major title this week, and he'll try anything to improve his chances, including possibly putting the new TaylorMade SLDR Mini driver in his bag.
Rose instagrammed a photo collage of the club with the following caption: "Been working with the amazing NEW @taylormadegolf #Mini driver this week, may have the #SLDR and #Mini driver in the bag at Augusta. Will keep you posted during the week. #LoftUp."
The new TaylorMade club is 260cc as compared to the 460cc SLDR driver and the 150cc SLDR 3-wood, and comes with a 43.5" shaft. It is designed as a 3-wood replacement for the player that desires the distance of a driver but the accuracy of a 3-wood off the tee and was first spotted on the range at this year's WGC-Cadillac Championship.

The TaylorMade SLDR Mini driver can be pre-ordered here for $279.99.
