FIRST LOOK! TaylorMade’s Super Tour Iron
OK, we have been anticipating some pictures of the new TaylorMade irons for months GolfWRX (see this thread if you want a long read) and finally here is some info.
GolfWRX’s first photos on the ground of Sean O’Hair testing new TaylorMade Tour irons. O’Hair said “It’s unlike any iron I have ever hit. Blown away by performance.”
He compared the performance to flighted rifle shafts: He can flight the short irons, but hit the long irons high — both keys to a strong iron game.
TaylorMade Executive Vice President Sean Toulon said what TaylorMade is about to do will completely change how TOUR players look at an iron.
Of course, the proof is in the pudding. During practice rounds, O’Hair had these gems…
On the 3rd hole, O’Hair had 191 uphill into a breeze. He struck a 6 iron straight up in the air — no ballooning — to 2ft. The bad news is O’Hair’s RBZ Rescue is no longer needed. On the 9th, he smoked a 3-iron 238 yards that landed soft. He smiled and said “the rescue is out.”
Enjoy the pics. We’ll add info as we can get it. Oh, and yes, that is simply camo badging to disguise the final look. Hoping to get some peeks at the finished product soon.
