TaylorMade unveils irons inspired by Tiger Woods

2.37pm 10th April 2019 - New Products

TaylorMade Golf has unveiled a new set of irons that have been designed in close collaboration with 14-time major champion Tiger Woods.

The new P7TW irons combine a forged, muscleback blade with a milled grind sole and tungsten weighting for flight control and unique feel specific to the former world No.1.

TaylorMade’s design team spent countless hours talking to Woods about his what he requires from a set of irons, and many hundreds of hours testing and fine-tuning a series for prototype sets, before settling on the final products, whose soles, contours and grooves meet with Woods’s seal of approval.

With an emphasis on precise trajectory control, high levels of workability and smooth turf interaction, each P7TW iron has been shaped to meet Woods’s discerning eye. Each iron boasts many of the same design elements, such as blade lengths, face height, centre of gravity progression, sole geometry, score lines and tungsten weighting that Woods has in his own bag.

In the past, Woods would need up to eight identical hand-crafted builds of each iron in order to find just one that he could put in play. Now, utilising the same machining process used for TaylorMade’s Milled Grind and Hi-Toe wedges, the P7TW irons feature fully milled soles for the first time ever in a TaylorMade iron to eliminate variations head-to-head and set-to-set— ensuring absolute precision in every individual piece.

Woods uses precise amounts of tungsten weighting behind the sweet spot of his irons to improve their feel and performance, delivering a unique blend of feel, flight and control for him to play his best.

Available for pre-order now and on sale from May 1, the P7TW irons will have an RRP of £1,899 for a set of seven irons. Available 3-PW (RH only) they are fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold S400 Tour Issue shafts and Golf Pride’s Tour Velvet Cord grips. The P•7TW will also be available through TaylorMade’s custom programme, allowing for numerous additional custom shaft and grip options.
