GolfWRX’s photos of Tiger Woods’ irons through the years

Published

on

From the time he emerged on Tour with a blended set of Mizuno irons, through his Titleist 681 irons, through his transition to Nike blades, Tiger Woods’ forged blade irons have had a similar look and similar specs.

Since the 14-time major champion inked a deal with TaylorMade in 2017, GolfWRX Members have been eagerly waiting to see what irons Tiger Woods, TaylorMade staffer, would play. Woods had been gaming a set of TGR Prototype irons while working with TM to design a set of irons. But finally, we got an in-hand look at the long-anticipated TaylorMade TW-Phase1 irons at the Wells Fargo Championship on Tuesday.

See what GolfWRX members are saying about the TW-Phase 1 irons here.

Here’s an in-hand look at Woods’ hot-off-the-polishing wheel TW-Phase1 8-iron.

Flashing all the way back to 2012 (the early days of the GolfWRX main page!), here are a couple of shots of Woods’ Nike VR Pro Blades.

In 2013, we spotted Woods with another VR Pro Blade model

In 2014, more of the same/similar Nike VR Pro Blades

In 2015, the Big Cat switched to Nike Vapor Pro Blades

…but then he returned to Nike VR Pro irons during his injury-marred 2016-2017 campaign

When Woods returned at the 2017 Hero World Challenge, through his appearance at this year’s Masters, he was was gaming these TGR Prototypes.

And as a bonus throwback: This forum picture of Tiger’s Nike irons from way back in 2005.

    Beautiful new irons in Tigers bag. Guess there is no hi tech in these. That picture of his putter looks pretty dinged up. If it’s always covered I don’t see how it got so banged up. I keep mine covered and it looks great still

      Yeah, what is Tiger doing with his putter? Flying around the world all the time playing golf or something?

      I just love the look Tiger’s new TM blades but I’m happy with my fantastic PXGs better than advertised.

PXG introduces high-MOI, adjustable Operator putter

Published

on

Joining the Drone and Gunboat on the high-MOI mallet-style putter end of the spectrum, PXG is launching its highest MOI putter to date: the Operator.

With a maximum head mass of 400 grams, depending on weight adjustments, the Operator features a soft billet-milled 304 stainless steel face and a body made from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum.

PXG made the Operator for those seeking advanced customization and maximum forgiveness. Multiple sole weights, available in increments of 2.5g, 5g, 10g, 15g and 20g, can be used to adjust the overall head mass.

Regarding the name: “Operator” is the specific term for Delta’s operational personnel, although in recent years it has become a term for almost all U.S. military special forces.

The putter is available in three models.

Operator

The double-bend hosel style creates a full shaft of offset with a face-balanced hang angle. Built for players with a straight-back-straight-through stroke.

Operator H

The hosel neck is heel-shafted with a half shaft of offset and mid toe-down hang angle. Built for players with more face rotation in their stroke.

Operator P

The plumber’s neck shaft creates a full shaft of offset with a slightly toe-down hang angle. Built for players with a moderate amount of face rotation in their stroke.

All Operator models feature PXG’s proprietary TPE honeycomb sole insert and a TPE insert behind the face to dampen vibrations and enhance feel.

$450 retail.
