Coming Soon: TaylorMade P-730 MB Irons?

Published

on

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.

    blades this blades that..blah blah blah. Who cares? All forged blades behave nearly identical. Tweak the lie, loft, weight amd use the same shaft youve been using for years and basically youve just managed to spend money for essentially that same stuff you had. Sure they look nice but whats the point? Anything you hit pure will feel like butter. How mich softer can butter be?

    I love that rippled channel and rubbing my finger in it.

    Very nice looking set of blades…they look very much like my old set of MacGregor 985 blades. Timeless classic design, indeed!

    The fact that your attempts at trashing back fails so miserably is precisely what makes you the very female that you say are slagging you off. Sounds like you’re one heck of a girl with nobody’s lap to cry on

    Golfers playing old equipment need new clubs every year. New clubs are not made for the “Neurotic gearheads will continue to slobber over new models”. Most are made for golfers playing older equipment that need new clubs. What are those playing MP33’s or 690MB’s that have rusted and worn out their groves supposed to do? Quit playing?

      You send them back to The Iron Factory and they come back looking and playing as though they are brand new. I’m still playing 680 mb’s and just had mine refinished; couldn’t be happier!

    I make that 310 new sets of irons from TM in the last six years.

    Really, does that channel do anything other than separate the top from the bottom? Why does it have to have such separation in design with any blade? Why not just make the blade a blade and make it all one-slash flat design with no indentation, no channel, no cut muscle, no perimeter edging, but just make it nice and flush flat clean, with just some name graphics.

      I would venture to say the removed material from the channel can be redistributed in the head to tweak the COG. Am looking forward to exchanging the 730 short irons for my 7-PW in my existing 770 set.

    It’s a blade. Only so much tech you can have in a blade. For the blade lover these clubs will be eye catching and they will want to test them and put them in play, for guys who don’t like blades, there is nothing to see here. I for one hope they are available soon as I would love to have blades back in the bag and replace the 770s (which are a lovely set of clubs in their own right!)

    Been playing these same design heads for 35 years. It’s a billet of steel smushed into function. KYEOI would be my first thought as to whom is forging these…look at the mp18 and you will see the same look. The more things change in this game the more they stay the same. SHAFTS are what has changed; allowing any player to dial in feel, flight, weight, etc. Grips technology as well.

    Duh. These teasers are getting old. Just release it and see how it plays. It’s been three years or more since their last MB. We all knew this was coming.

Toulon Santa Monica: The inside scoop

Published

on

As many have already seen this week in the forums, we spotted a brand new model from Toulon: the Santa Monica.

There were a lot of finer details going on with this putter that got peoples ears up including

  • The one-piece design – no variable weight sole plate
  • A classic head shape with Toulon refinements
  • The finish & overall aesthetics

Thanks to a ton of positive feedback, we had to find out more.  So, we went right to the top and called up Sean Toulon to find out about this new model and what else might be coming in the near future.

Here’s what we know:

The Santa Monica, that was captured is part of a larger project that will be going all out when it comes to customization and “showing the world what we can do when it comes to design and manufacturing,” according to Toulon. This line of putters will not be available on the grand scale and instead will focus on individual pieces and prioritize the customer experience.

This new line from Toulon will also include new putters not yet seen, although we have one name so far: La Grange (shout out to Texas!), and it will also include different materials not currently found in the Toulon/Odyssey line. The focus will be 100 percent on boutique, different and just for you, said Toulon. The new line will center around exercising total creativity, and also have the potential for one-off and limited-number pieces.

We don’t have a timeline for when these will become available to the public, but when we do, we will be sure to let you know.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Viktor Hovland signing with Ping”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Dave D and it surrounds Viktor Hovland’s future as a Ping staffer. There has been plenty of chatter on our forums after Dave D shared this post from @golfnation_’s Instagram account.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • cvhookem3: “Seems like he was hinting at that with his equipment changes at the US Open. Good for him. He should be a lot of fun to watch.”
  • bladehunter: “Figured. He had near a full ping bag anyway. Love this kid. I really predict great things. Loads of raw tools.”
  • ImagineThat: “I think we’ll be seeing a lot of Viktor Hovland in the future…enough where his name will no longer appear strange. He seems to really be an upbeat guy with a nice personality, and he has a nice friendly smile to go with it.”

Golf Digest’s E. Michael Johnson reported Hovland is now a Ping man, writing he “signed a multi-year deal with Ping to play a minimum of 11 clubs, including driver and putter, along with a Ping staff bag and logo on the hat.”
