Published

on

At the 2018 PGA Show Demo Day in Orlando, TaylorMade displayed a number of new products including a P-790 UDI 17-degree 2 iron, an extended Spider Tour putter lineup — including new Spider models, Spider “Interactive” putters and Spider ARC putters — and the new Hi-Toe wedges officially launch.

Check out photos and info regarding each of the products below.

P-790 UDI 2-iron

The new P-790 UDI 2-iron has the same construction as TaylorMade’s P-790 irons, which have SpeedFoam between the face and body, but the UDI has a lower profile like the company’s previous Tour Preferred UDI iron. TaylorMade says it plans to launch these to the public sometime in the future.

Spider Tour putters

TaylorMade’s ultra-popular Spider Tour Red putters are being released with five new sightlines and hosels options, including (with descriptions from TaylorMade):

  • No. 1 L-Neck: full sightline, 21-degree toe hang, full shaft offset (RH/LH)
  • No. 3 Small Slant: no sightline, 32-degree toe hang, half shaft offset (RH only)
  • No. 3 Small Slant: full sightline, 32-degree toe hang, half shaft offset (RH/LH)
  • No. 7 Double Bend: full sightline, face-balanced, half shaft offset (RH/LH)
  • No. 7 Center: full sightline, face-balanced, center-shaft (RH only)

The new Spider Black models include (with descriptions from TaylorMade):

  • No. 3 Small Slant: no sightline, 32-degree toe hang, half shaft offset (RH/LH)
  • No. 7 Double Bend: full sightline, face-balanced, half shaft offset (RH only)

Taylormade is also releasing a new Spider Tour Diamond Silver colorway in two models, as described by TaylorMade:

  • No. 1 L-Neck: full sightline, 21-degree toe hang, full shaft offset (RH/LH)
  • No. 7 Double Bend: full sightline, face-balanced, half shaft offset (RH/LH)

The new Spider Tour putters, which have 304 stainless steel frames, 6061 aluminum bodies and PureRoll face inserts, will be available in 33, 34 and 35 inch options, come stock with SuperStroke GTR 1.0 grips and black steel finish shafts. They hit retail on January 26 and will sell for $299.

Spider ARC

The Spider ARC, which was first spotted in Justin Rose’s bag at Augusta in 2017, is a full mallet that TaylorMade says is its highest MOI (moment of inertia, a measure of forgiveness) Spider putter, and it’s made for stability, alignment and a forward roll. It has a stainless steel “ring,” an aluminum body, and a Pure Roll insert.

Spider ARC Red and Spider ARC Silver putters will hit retail on February 4 for $299. They come in 33, 34 and 35-inch lengths, and come stock with SuperStroke GTR 1.0 grips and black finish steel shafts.

Spider Interactive

In conjunction with Blast Motion, TaylorMade’s new Spider interactive putters use chips in the butt-end of the SuperStroke grips that have accelerometers, magnetometers and gyroscopes in them to determine where the putter is in space at a given time. Coupled with the Spider Interactive app, the system offers feedback on stroke tempo, stroke speed, putter rotation, loft change and lie change. According to TaylorMade, a 0.6 back swing and 0.3 forward swing (a 2:1 ratio) is best.

The Spider Interactive putters can be USGA conforming (yellow chip) or non-conforming (white chip), and they will sell for $399 starting March 23.

Copper-colored TP Collection putters

TaylorMade is staying tight-lipped about these copper-colored TP Collection putters with red face inserts, but at the PGA Show Demo Day range, the company had them out in Soto, Mullen 2 and Ardmore 3 models.

Hi-Toe wedges

Taylormade’s Hi-Toe wedges, that have already been used by Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm to win tournaments, are coming to the public. They’re milled grind wedges with raised toe sections to raise CG (center of gravity) to produce a lower ball flight with more spin.

Made from 8620 carbon steel with aged-copper finishes and ZTP-17 grooves, the Hi-Toe wedges will be available in 58, 60 and 64 degree lofts (64 is right-hand only). They will come stock with KBS Hi-REV 2.0 115 gram shafts, Golf pride Tour Velvet burgundy 360 GEC grips, and will sell for $169 starting on March 2.

    The HiToe wedge will only be a hit for me if it has the flat leading edge like the one DJ plays.

Jimmy Walker spotted testing a Titleist prototype driver?

Published

on

As spotted by GolfWRX Forum Member “anthony007,” Jimmy Walker was shown on the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive hitting an unidentified driver at the Warrior Open.

In anthony007’s forum post, along with the photo, he asks the question “Is this a new Driver from Titleist?”

Well, it’s hard to tell from the grainy photo exactly what the driver says on the sole. But then Jimmy Walker himself posted on Twitter saying: “Great catch! Its always fun to test new prototypes and the [Titleist on Tour] guys have given me some cool toys to play with that are incredible – but unfortunately I can’t talk about them yet!”

While the response is a bit cryptic, it does seem that Walker confirms he was indeed testing a Titleist prototype driver.

What do you think?
