Tiger Woods is putting a new set of 'TW-Phase1' prototype TaylorMade irons in to play as he tees up at Quail Hollow for the Wells Fargo Championship this week. 

Tiger Woods took to social media to announce he is going to be playing with some new TaylorMade muscleback irons, named 'TW-Phase1', when he tees up at the Wells Fargo Championship this week. 

Woods has said he is excited to be putting his first TaylorMade proto irons in to play as he switches from the TGR Stamped prototype that he used for his first few tournaments of 2018.

"Phase 1 of irons development with @TaylorMadeGolf is complete. Looking forward to teeing it up this week," Woods wrote on social media. 

“I’ve spent time with the TaylorMade R&D and Tour teams on the creation and testing of several new sets of irons for me," Woods said. "I am excited to put my first set of TaylorMade proto irons in play this week.

"Every set I have ever put into play is slightly different than the previous. It’s a meticulous process and this is the first phase of that process with TaylorMade. Getting the shape just right, the sole, the topline, grooves, grinds…everything. 

"So far so good, and I am looking forward to continuing that process with the team.”
