A little over a month ago, TaylorMade and Rory debuted Rory's custom built clubs, the Rors Proto irons. I was wondering if anyone has come across some performance numbers for the irons like ball speed, spin, carry?

 

It would simply be eyebrow-raising to see what numbers these clubs generate under Rory's swing. Maybe if someone has come across Rory's iron play numbers over the past month or so, that'd be super neat to study. Of course they're not production irons which hinders pretty much any possibility to gain numbers of them, but can't hurt to try!

 

-Thanks! Swing easy.

Seems like they should have done this for DJ... I get Rory has won more. But DJ is the king of the hill right now.

 

And once again I have to compliment your user name.

One of the assistant pros at the course I work at is a Taylormade staffer and he's been talking about the retail release of these non-stop since Rory put them in the bag. Not very detailed info, but I heard tv commentators say Rory was hitting a PW on a 150 flatter par 3 at Erin Hills into a slight headwind. Take that for what it's worth!

The difference is, they already had DJ. They didn't have Rory yet and had to come up with something to entice him. If it was flip flopped and DJ was the free agent then maybe I can see them doing the same for him but even then, who knows. Rory holds a much higher marketing value than DJ does. 

 

I think DJ asked for a set when he saw Rory's though.

True. They are clean looking. Hopefully they don't mess up the retail model with spaceship stuff.

I hadn't seen those yet. When did Rickie put those in the bag?

Rickie's remind me of the old Nike VR pro blades

Those were are from when he switched from Titleist to Cobra. So they are older, just goes to show that there isn't much change with these types of clubs.

That's what I was thinking Nike VR Victory TW (being that Tiger wanted CG in a different place than others, at that time)

Makes me sad to hear that because DJ is hitting the ball just fine, he doesn't need to tinker. Rory is in such a slump right now he's throwing S* at the wall just trying to see what sticks.

I would love to have an iron set stamped the way his is. No big number on the sole and then the loft on the club on there as well. Very clean.

He's won 2 of his last 10 tournaments. Thats a historically impressive pace.

Yes he's searching right now but he regularly does that with putting. His ball striking is fine.

I don't think switching mbs is something that would mess with DJ. With that said, i wouldn't look for him to switch anytime soon either.

 

People need to chill out when players are "off" and dont win every week. The guy has been hurt most of the year, got married and made equipment changes. He needs reps and he'll be fine just like always. Same for Spieth or anyone else who hasn't won in the last month or 2.
