TaylorMade is at it again. More new clubs! This time they are addressing a segment of the market that has been lacking in recent years – low handicap golfers. Large, clunky looking irons aren’t very popular with better players, and while TaylorMade will tell you their staff pros are playing the RocketBladez Tour irons, the clubs they play aren’t like the ones in the store.
With the new Tour Preferred irons, better players now get to choose from three different iron models. I’m sure they can even be mixed and matched by the custom department for a nice combo set as well. More details to come. Here are the basics on the three new models:
The TaylorMade Tour Preferred CB iron combines a compact and elegant shape with a semi-deep cavity back for stability and forgiveness. TaylorMade says this club is a union of speed, feel, control and forgiveness in a clean design.
The Tour Preferred MC iron marries a thin topline and sole with a shallow muscle-cavity that adds some forgiveness on off center hits while preserving the soft feel of a muscle back iron. The TP MC is an artful balance of feel, power workability and stability, according to TaylorMade.
The Tour Preferred MB irons are simple muscleback blades intended for the purist. These are for the consistent ball striker who wants the ultimate in feel and shot-shaping workability.
With a purchase of TaylorMade Tour Preferred equipment, consumers have the option to register for Tour Preferred 360. It is a consumer-minded program that will allow those golfers who have made the choice to play Tour Preferred to enjoy certain benefits (good through 12/31/15) that are normally reserved for TaylorMade’s tour players, including but not limited to:
- Tour Preferred 360 Hotline – 855-654-TOUR (8687)
