    Pretty sure Tiger uses the PP58 grip, not the “Ping Pistol,” heck I don’t even know what that is.

      On a closeup it was a PING pistol. He used to play a std. because he could feel the Putt batter with a thinner grip. The PING used to be blacked out but the one he is using was not.

    there must be a break in period for Tiger and his new equipment….how long some people are impatient.

    Interesting he still has Nike wedges in the bag. I thought wedges were the clubs even us weekend warriors are meant to replace every year. No TM wedges he likes or just loving the Nike wedges til the grooves wear out?

    • Gorden

      Safe bet those groves have been re-cut a few times, or he had extra heads/clubs in storage?

    The real key would be to look at the score lines. The VR Pro irons (as well as the entire VR line) had more score lines on the face to increase spin. If these are an entirely new iron design, then the score lines would presumably be different. However, if these are indeed “re-stamps,” then a major clue would reside in those score lines.

      Didn’t they also have an extra groove or two? either way I suspect he has dozens available.

    They are like shiny MP-18s

    If Tiger cannot get a driver in play, it does not matter what equipment he has, he will never win again. Look at the score Reed put up at the Masters, every major seems to have a guy come out and shoot an amazing score. I want to see Tiger back winning a few majors, but highly unlikely. The driver should be the best, most comfortable club in the bag!

    They resemble Mizuno MP 29’s

    • Tim Armington

      May 11, 2018 at 7:14 pm

      Exactly what i thought. Clicked on the comments thinking everyone would be saying how they looked like the 29’s!

    Will all the Eldrick fanboys please stand up and jump off the cliff

      That’s like saying, “Will all the Ben Hogan fanboys please stand up and jump off the cliff.” Dear god man.

    Retro irons ….. 😛

    anyone know if he is still using the same lofts which are weaker than most modern irons?

    • professor

      May 2, 2018 at 11:43 am

      Great question, but is anyone else trying to figure out the gap between his pitching wedge (presumably 45*) and his sand wedge (56*).

    sick of those ‘looks like WTF 101 blades blah blah’ comments. what’s the point of bringing circa 1893 memories? we all know well enough what Tiger’s been using. #moveon

    my bigger problem is seeing a 5W in his bag therefore 15 clubs listed here. haven’t seen he swings a 5W. is it a Tueday marketing gesture for TM or is he actually contemplating to 2i? #interesting

      May 1, 2018 at 7:43 pm

      ……o.k….settle down….

    • M. Coz

      May 1, 2018 at 7:50 pm

      Actually he has a 5 wd in his bag quite a bit before this. It is his “optional” club going back to Nike. He hasn’t had it much recently because he “loves” that “2 iron” which has become a “pet” club.

    • Betablockers

      May 1, 2018 at 7:57 pm

      Ok…it should say ping where it says tiger and anser where it says woods….ps not sure what you were trying to say, but doesn’t Tiger use a 5 wood half the time…assume he liked his 2 iron in windy conditions.

      Ps…would be interesting to see photos of all Tiger’s irons over the years to see how they were all really the same iron.

  14. JJ

    May 1, 2018 at 5:46 pm

    Those irons look stunning..even if similar to TW blades of the past. Curious to see if fellow Nike VR player Tommy Fleetwood gets himself a set of these from TM! A swish of those locks and a wink I’m sure he’d get himself some haha!

    Title should be Tigers old Nike VR PRO irons with Taylormade logo

    • kdevli

      May 1, 2018 at 5:24 pm

      Made by Mike Taylor who worked for NIKE and made all his irons, wedges and all the clubs for all the NIKE athletes. Now has his own custom shop, Artisan Golf, in the old NIKE building in Fort Worth. Best club maker in the business.

  16. Tiemco

    May 1, 2018 at 4:46 pm

    So I thought he was a TM guy, these look a lot like the Mizuno MP-18’s, a little too much.

  17. Troy L Rambo

    May 1, 2018 at 4:41 pm

    Wow, those look remarkably like his Nike Oven irons and his former Titleist 681 MB’s. Things that make you go …hmmmmmmmmm?

  18. Chuck Barkley

    May 1, 2018 at 3:15 pm

    I think ‘ol boy needs to come around to some GI irons so he can capitalize on his new found 130mph, herculean 350 plus yard drives! Hahahaha!!! Phase I?! Are you kidding me? Gimme a break already! Eldrick, your blade iron days are numbered.
    See if TM can dig up an old set of hollow IC’dubyas for ya, and they’ll at least look like blades and offer you some forgiveness.

      Tiger usually doesn’t miss the center of the face… his problem is just directional based off face and path. Game impovment irons wouldn’t help in this regard and would probably go too far and mess up gapping. You honestly don’t know what you’re talking about.

      • Nick

        May 1, 2018 at 4:27 pm

        Yeah the OP doesn’t have a clue what he’s talking about. You nailed it. Also, those blades look amazing.

    • Diana Krall

      May 1, 2018 at 4:34 pm

      Give us a break Chuckie. Your routine is a tired, boring act from a guy who can hide behind a keyboard and mistakenly thinks he has some basis for critiquing Tiger choice of equipment. My guess is you are having trouble with your Big Bertha with those senior shafts you recently had installed and tour comment is a reflection of your dismay.

    • ROY

      May 1, 2018 at 4:38 pm

      He does seem to be an expert on the GI iron……guess years of sub mediocrity finally paying off…

      I agree!
