When Tiger Woods first started playing with the TaylorMade P-7TW irons at the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open, they represented the culmination of plenty of manhours and collaboration between TaylorMade engineers and the 14-time major winner to get a set of irons perfect for Woods' approach to the game.
But before even Woods himself could debut the irons on the PGA Tour, Tommy Fleetwood decided to put Tiger Woods' irons into play in the Middle East to start 2019. Then once Woods played the irons at Torrey Pines, all of a sudden, it seemed like it was possible for at least other pros to hit Woods' irons. As it turns out, TaylorMade is making the P-7TW irons available to us hacks as well.
The TaylorMade P-7TW irons were not only developed with Woods but also with former Nike Golf club maker Mike Taylor, putting together all their collective knowledge and technologies. Of course, the P-7TW irons are a muscle-back iron, just like all of Woods' sets. Each head is specifically designed unto itself, fit to Woods' specs and what he needs from each club, emphasizing trajectory control, workability and turf interaction. All of the irons utilize tungsten weighting in them, too. While tungsten is typically used to drive center of gravity location, the P-7TW irons utilize tungsten in the sweet spot to enhance Woods' feel and control of each iron.
Each iron sold to the public will carry most of the same specs Woods carries in his own irons, though nothing is quite exact to what the Big Cat is gaming.
A unique TaylorMade contribution to these irons is their Milled Grind process, first found in the eponymous wedge line. The process, which mills the sole to eliminate head-to-head variations in weighting and shaping, allows TaylorMade to make exact copies of these irons so Woods wouldn't need a variety of sets made so Woods can compile a single playable set from all of them.
The TaylorMade P-7TW irons will be available May 1 for $2,000 in 3-PW (right-handed only) with True Temper Dynamic Gold S400 Tour Issue shafts and Golf Pride’s Tour Velvet Cord grips. TaylorMade Customs buyers will be able to add their own shaft and grip options.
