Earlier this week, we spotted TaylorMade’s new P-790 irons, which were being tested as driving irons by Jon Rahm and Jason Day at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. They’re the likely replacements for TaylorMade’s UDI (Ultimate Driving Iron) that was released in 2014, and it’s not a stretch to think that TaylorMade will release a full set of the P-790 to add a longer-flying, more-forgiving option to its new P-700 iron series to market.
Thanks to a social media post from Senior Director of TaylorMade Irons, Tomo Bystedt, we now also know to be on the lookout for another new P-700 series iron set. Bystedt tweeted that Dustin Johnson could soon be making a switch to the company’s new P-730 irons.

Johnson also confirmed in a Twitter post that he’s testing the P-730 irons.

The P-730 irons look a lot like the “Rors Proto” and “Rose Proto” irons that are being used on the PGA Tour by Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose, which are muscleback irons. That’s a good indication of a potential Johnson switch, as the 2016 U.S. Open Champion has been a steadfast user of TaylorMade’s Tour Preferred MB irons since they were released in 2014.
