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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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!)

  3. 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.

  4. 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?

  5. OMG you’re so clueless you’re so not a kind human at all you’re below amoeba, look who’s talking about pathetic why don’t you get back into your mudhole and leave the good people alone

  6. 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

  7. 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!
