Taylormade P790 driving irons!

Recommended Posts

If you have twitter hit up @itsthejor. He will likely be able to get you an answer

 

Edit: actually it looks like he already answered that question on Twitter. Should be able for special order April 1st

 

That's what I was told as well. But of course, not love for the lefty's.

Someone in my golf group just ordered the p790 3 iron. He is an 8 handicap- my game isn't ready for this club. I'll let you know guys know how he reviews the club. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to take a few cuts.

I'd have to say the set looks nice and clean. I love how clubs are getting back to simple traditional looks. I haven't been a taylormade fan but this is a nice looking set

Haven't been big on the newer Taylormade clubs. They feel clunky to me. These look ok but still not a mizuno :)

Pretty sleek design. I haven't heard the term “driving iron.” Before. Am I just new? Lol

Low lofted irons (2i, 3i) that are longer and more forgiving than your standard iron set. Often straighter than hybrids or woods. They often have a hollow core construction, which provides the extra distance.

I have played about 10 rounds with mine. Don't have super high swing speed (98.5 with driver) but am a high ball hitter. This club is awesome. Feels great and very consistent. Replaced my M3 hybrid with it. Adds much more versatility to my bag.

I've played 7 rounds with my new set of P-790 irons ( 5 - AW)  w/ UST Recoil 780 ES (Graphite) shafts. At 64 years of age, I needed to regain some distance over what I had been previously been playing...  due to various physical limitations ( aging, being the primary one).  These enable me to hit one club less ( 8 iron now vs. 7 iron prior ). I can move them either way ( fade or draw  at will ) and with the best part of my game being the short game, my handicap, I'm sure will be lowered. These irons are as close to the blades ( 1985 Spalding Tour Edition ) I used to play in the 80's & 90's.  In getting fitted,,,, I tried AP3, JPX 900EZ, & TM M2.... The P-790, for my swing, was the best of the bunch.  Try 'em before you knock 'em.

 

FYI .... I've now replaced the ProV1X with the Snell MTB as my go to ball,,,, same performance , less $$.

I purchased a Taylormade M4 4 iron to replace my crossover.  I wish I would have waited a bit.  These look sweet.  I feel like I need a different shaft in it though.

      Took about a year, but now have officially flipped my bag for the first time. Year before, I began inundating myself in golf knowledge and equipment. Learned how the swing path and club face work together, how to shape shots and have made great progress. Now I know exactly what I'm doing, and most often know why. So far I've seen my handicap drop significantly, (15-17 down to 5-8). Technically at this point, I'm a 5 handicap, but that was one score out of 5 (5, 18 hole rounds. I've played quite a bit of 9 hole rounds) and I believe I'm closer to an 8 realistically. But maybe I'll be lower and near a 5 this year with thMP-18e clubs in my bag fully updated and have more experience with each club.
      Updated my driver and 3W shaft as well after getting them last year and I think that will be a game changer and lower my scores by hitting more fairways. Drastically improved my iron game with getting fitted and buying Mizuno MP-18 mixed set. Can shape my shots and get very consistent distances, so I'm pretty excited for this year. Wedge game improved quite a bit too and now have rounded out the SM6 set completely. Also really excited as I've been rolling the new Taylormade TP Black Copper Juno nicely in the basement, and getting very consistent rolls and forgiveness. Never have really been excited about a putter, but the black copper is sexy, and it performs.
      Looking to get on simulators a few times this winter, heated driving range a few times, a big golf show to attend, Taylormade demo fitting, and plently of swinging and putting in the garage and basement. Looking forward to early spring and am optimistic for my best golf yet.

      Trying to not get overly excited for Jan golf trip and hoping that mother nature doesn't deposit her first snowstorm on us in New England around my departure date.
