With Tiger Woods being back in the full swing of things, it’s only right for the world of GolfWRX to take a look at what clubs he’s using.

Based on a picture Tweeted at us from @kevinromangolf, Tiger has quite a mixed bag including TaylorMade PSi, TaylorMade RSi2 and TaylorMade UDI irons, as well as Nike VR Forged wedges. But most of the talk revolves around the “TGR” blade prototype irons he has in the bag… what are they?!

After speaking with a variety of industry insiders, the best insight we received was from a former representative at Nike who was around when the company still offered hard goods. Our source speculates that they are old Nike irons — we assume the source is referencing Nike’s VR Pro blades that Tiger used as recently as 2017 — but re-stamped with Tiger’s “TGR” company logo. Another interesting tidbit from the source includes Tiger’s testing process; he says when testing equipment coming off a long break, Tiger goes back to all of his old equipment to get “baseline” numbers and seeks improvement in relation to those.

But we still did not find a concrete answer for who exactly manufactured the irons, but rather, simply speculation from a former Nike representative. So we put the question to GolfWRX members, who are endlessly knowledgable about equipment and have followed Tiger’s equipment decisions for years.

Below are the results from our forum poll, answers from GolfWRX members in the forums, and Twitter responses. Make sure to check out the full thread here.

Other (5.10 percent of votes)

Golfingfanatic: Mike Taylor at Artisan Golf is my guess.

From_Parts_Unknown: My guess would be Endo (Thailand) finished by Mike Taylor.

Mizuno (8.28 percent)

TaylorMade (17.20 percent)

Nard_S: They are Taylormade’s based off the Rory prototype.

HDTVMAN: Look like a custom version of the new TM P Series.

Miura (29.30 percent)

seetoo: Made for Nike by Miura.

DatSliceDoe: The original source is Miura, then Nike, then someone else who did the stamping.

J13: Miura for Nike For TGR for Tiger.

Nike (35.67 percent)

ago33: Old nikes because of the stamping.

Neverfaze: I mean the font on the 6 iron is straight from the VR series.. so..

KeithM38: Yeah they look like straight VR copies.

dalton044: Probably just some unstamped Nike heads he had.

PARthur: Guessing Miura, possibly TM or Titleist. Look like copies of his Nike blades. I imagine any mfg with great forgings could make them.

Kylekoz17: Definitely Nike heads, most likely finished by Mike Taylor at Artisan at the open Oven. Muscle and number stamps are identical to VR Pros.

  2. Basically everyone is commenting on who the wish made these clubs. “They’re Endo because I love that factory!”
    “They’re Mizuno because everyone wants to play Mizuno because I play Mizuno!”
    “They’re old Nike’s because now that they stopped making clubs Nike is retro cool!”

  3. Straight Endo action. Just like his “Nike” irons. They used the old stampings the y had at Miura to put “TGR” on them. Tiger has always played Miura clubs, although they were dressed up like Nike. Why would he change now? If you get a taste for a Miura forging there’s no going back.

  4. Tiger’s TGR line of muscleback blade irons will go into competition with PXG and will top their price too.
    “No Screws or Foam Here — Just Pure Muscleback Power for Real Golfers” !!!!!!
    Lotsa WOOOOOO in these clubs!!!
