SPOTTED: TaylorMade P-760 Forged irons (via Jason Day’s Instagram Live)

Published

on

As reported in our GolfWRX Forums, TaylorMade staffers Rory McIlroy and Jason Day showed off a new TaylorMade P-760 Forged iron on their personal Instagram Live feeds during testing sessions with Tomo Bystedt, Director of Product Creation for TaylorMade.

According to GolfWRX Member jjgsgolf: “Just saw these on Rory’s Instagram Live, supposedly they’re in between the 750 and 770 in thickness and forgiveness, and the 7-3 irons have the same signature speed foam of the 790 and GAPR models…”

See what GolfWRX Members are saying about the photos in our forums.

In TaylorMade’s current stable of irons are the P-750 and P-770 irons, which launched in 2017. They are both forged players irons with Tungsten added into their soles. Additionally, TaylorMade has P-730 blade irons, and Speed-Foam-filled P-790 irons.

Now, it appears that P-760 Forged irons may be on their way.

According to GolfWRX member eedub, Jason Day was less-than-enthusiastic: “Jason Day went live also, didn’t exactly seem excited about them. Blatantly said he’s ‘concerned’ about the leading edge, all while being filmed by Tomo from Taylormade who apparently designed the irons. yikes!”

Here is the full transcript from the testing session where Day expresses concern.

It also appears that the P-760 irons have a screw in the toe, which usually tips off the fact it’s a hollow-bodied iron, or in this case, filled with Speed Foam.

GolfWRX Member jjgsgolf continued: “From what I heard in the IG Live these are supposed to be hotter than 750 and 770 but not even close to the 790’s because of the loft. JD and Rory were hitting the 760’s pretty similar distance to their gamers on the videos.”

TaylorMade has not yet commented on the P-760 Forged irons, so we’re currently left to speculate. We will update this story as more information is released.

    Oh man, these are dreadfully ugly. Hope they hit the ball in the hole every time to be worth having to look at those things in the bag!

    Well, if you leave it in the sun long enough, can probably grill any dead animals you kill with your errant golf shots. Just make sure to clean and gut first. Stay civilized.

    Most of my bag is Taylormade outside of my irons 4-PW. Instead of these do yourself a favor and get the JPX 919 tours for half the price and enjoy!

    so if these out perform anything currently in our bag, we’ll jump to purchase.

    These clubs look terrible. I know the back side doesn’t hit the ball, but these clubs will look ugly sitting in a bag.

    if you took the badging off it looks like nike to me

      I was thinking the same… reminds me a little of the old Nike Pro Combo OS. Wasn’t the prettiest club to most, but man did they perform… I’m definitely giving these a hit.

      Great analogy. I was also thinking the Zebra Putter mixed in there as well.

Our Johnny Wunder paid a visit to Ping HQ in Phoenix, and in addition to getting to step inside to company’s legendary gold putter vault, The Gear Dive host got an exclusive in-hand look at Ping’s new prototype Blueprint irons.

While we can’t provide any additional details at present, we do have these photos of a 6-iron for your viewing pleasure.

Bargain Challenge: Putting together a set of clubs for $500

Published

on

You have a golf trip planned in two weeks. One day after work, you head to your car to hit the range and get some grinding in for the trip. As you walk to your car you notice your car has been broken into and your clubs are gone. Not good. You need new clubs for the trip but aren’t in a position to shell out the $2,000-$3,000 for a brand new set. What are your options? I recommend hitting the used market.

Every year, thousands of used golf clubs go on the market. Some of the clubs had a rough life and some have barely been hit. As an exercise to see what you can get for your dollar, I browsed one of the web’s largest used golf equipment sites (3balls.com) with a budget of $500 for a full set of clubs in my specs. What I found was really interesting.

Rules: 14 clubs for under $500 shipped. As close to my specs as possible.

Driver

Since I play a low loft driver with a low launch, low spin shaft, I knew I was in for a challenge with finding a driver. Once I took a minute to search, I found this beauty of a driver. I remember hitting the Ping G10 back in the day, and it was one of the most forgiving drivers at the time. Plus, it was very close to my specs at standard length, 7.5 degrees, and a mid-launch Grafalloy shaft.

Wood

While searching for a 3-wood, I had two things in mind, I needed a X-stiff shaft, and I needed it to be heavy. After about five minutes, I found this great Titleist 913 with a heavier X-stiff shaft. Normally I play a 13-degree 3-wood, and this 3-wood would allow me to loft it down to get the desired flight. Really a solid deal for $50.

Hybrid

In an ideal world, I’d be hitting a 2-iron or a driving iron here. The problem is that driving irons can sell for $100-plus fairly easily, so that was out of budget. After searching, I found a nice 17-degree hybrid from Ping with an X-stiff shaft. The shaft is a little lighter than I would like, but it is not a bad pick up for 80 bucks.

Irons

I knew I would want to spend the majority of my money on some solid irons. After searching, with the parameters being a 3-PW set with X100 shafts, I found this great Titleist combo set. I current play a MB/CB combo from another company, so this set fits well with what I am looking for if I was to replace my current set. All of this for $200.

Wedges

Wedge shopping was hard because I needed a lob wedge with good grooves and a gap wedge that wasn’t trash. I got really lucky with the Ping lob wedge. It is in very good condition which is really what matters for the grooves since I will be using it greenside. Since it is blue dot, I can get it sent to ping to be adjusted for my specs. For the gap wedge, I picked up a heavily used 52-degree. Ideally, I would have more money for a slightly better grooved GW.

Putter

Can’t go wrong with a White Hot in my preferred length. Not much more to say.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Is it easier to hit players irons?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day was created by lazyjc4, who asks fellow GolfWRX members for their opinion on what they feel are some of the easiest to hit players irons on the market. Our members have mentioned a multitude of players irons, with plenty of detailed reasoning behind their choices.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • thewral: “New Level 902. Single piece forging, feel great, smallish head, low offset, distance lofts.”
  • naj959: “I went through a couple of sets of irons this year which included 765s, flyz+, and finally settled on the…..Bridgestone J15 DPF. There are some great reviews of these irons. The 765s are forgiving, but the j15s are even more so. They have a very thin top line, are workable, and are lonnnng.”
  • Casper_golf: “Take a good look at the Wilson V6, or if you are looking for something older, guys really like the V4’s that can be found as a steal.  Way underrated irons. Soft feel forgiving and long for the weaker lofts they have. No offset.”
  • Sonja Henie: “Very interested in the comment about the 745s being similar to the 545s in forgiveness.  I’ve been very tempted by the 565s but might do better with the 765s.”
