TaylorMade have released the P•7TW irons – a premium set of blades co-designed by Tiger Woods
TaylorMade Golf have announced the release of their new P•7TW irons, a premium players set of blades which have been designed and crafted in collaboration with Tiger Woods.
In addition to featuring tungsten in every head, the new P•7TW irons feature fully milled soles for the first time ever in a TaylorMade iron to ensure precision across every set.
The latest irons are a product of hundreds of hours of testing and fine tuning nine design iterations through years of development, but interestingly weren't created as a set.
Instead, each head has been individually engineered to meet the highest of performance demands. TaylorMade's R&D and product creation teams studied decades worth of club specifications and worked directly with Tiger to refine every sole, every contour and every groove. With an emphasis on precise trajectory control, incredible workability and smooth turf interaction, each iron has been meticulously shaped to meet Tiger's discerning eye.
Each P•7TW iron utilises many of the same design elements such as blade lengths, face height, CG progression, sole geometry, score lines and tungsten weighting, etc., that Tiger himself has in the bag.
MILLED GRIND SOLES
In the past, Tiger 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, P•7TW 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.
"It's no longer necessary to try to blend a set together from 50 different clubs; we're able to replicate each one with consistency, from club to club, set to set, every single time," says Woods.
“With Milled Grind, knowing that I’m getting essentially the same set that I just wore out is huge. I no longer have to hit hundreds upon thousands of golf balls to find a set.”
It is not widely known that Tiger uses precise amounts of tungsten weighting behind the sweet spot of his irons to improve their feel and performance. In golf, tungsten is typically used to achieve a specific CG location—however, Tiger Woods is no typical player. Instead, by optimally placing tungsten within the head of each P•7TW iron, they deliver a unique blend of feel, flight and control for Tiger to play his best.
