Read an article yesterday, basically there has been no discussion at all between Tiger and Taylormade on irons yet. He hasn't approached them and it's up to him to initiate. Got the impression from the article there was a feeling it was all a bit too quiet on the Tiger and Taylormade advertising/branding front.

Maybe he will just TGR Nike irons and TM woods for the next while. Wouldn't surprise me. I am a little surprised TM wouldn't have been pushing to get him irons to his spec as soon as possible and get them in the bag for hero

A lot of possibilities. Maybe Tiger is going to stick to their woods and they renegotiated their contract. Maybe he hasnít had enough time to test TM irons yet since he just started swinging fully weeks ago. He did have TM utility irons in the bag though. Yet I canít see TM pulling out without seeing how Tiger plays first. You donít jump ship that fast if Tiger has any chance of playing well again.

Yes, Iím sure some flexibility early on. In the first few weeks the big names can use their old putters. But flexibility long-term is not letting Tiger swap out 8 of your companyís clubs for someone else's.

Interesting. That article sounds more credible than I imagined. I still think Tiger will be using TM irons when he gets on Tour next year. Iím guessing Tiger is just using the old faithful irons for now because he really wants to do well at the Hero. He doesnít want to be messing with a new swing and new irons before he gets under the big lights in a few weeks.

Yet I can’t see TM pulling out without seeing how Tiger plays first. You don’t jump ship that fast if Tiger has any chance of playing well again.

If TW is still with TM I bet they push him into their iron line soon.  Initially, he had a full bag deal minus the putter.  We would have heard if TW or TM did an amendment to that deal.

I don’t think anyone is going to push tiger to do anything.  I’m sure they will try to make a set up to his standards and expectations, but I’m sure he won’t allow anyone to push him into something he doesn’t want.  And I don’t think Taylormade wants him to use something he isn’t fully comfortable with.  After all, it’s the driver and woods that people see the most on tv anyways.  He doesn’t have time or tournaments to waste experimenting much anymore if he’s serious with his comeback.  I’ll be curious to see what Taylormade comes up with for him.

You think TaylorMade would let Tiger go all of 2018 without using their irons? They already lost almost all of 2017. They've got to push him sooner or later. At least by the Masters.

Iím in the camp that believes TM will let Tiger play whatever he wants as long as the woods are TM.

Until TM truly makes an exact replica of his current irons, he is not switching. Tiger just gaming their new p790 UDI (custom of course) would lead to even more sellouts of a hot club.

Ideally if Tiger games 3 woods, driving iron and wedges eventually. That would be plenty for TM to be more than happy, as long as heís healthy and playing again obvs.

Forcing him out of his irons wonít help either of them. The guy is the best iron player of all time, let him do his thing

I think he will continue using TM woods (they are arguably the best woods in the market) and he will be allowed to game his Nike irons and wedges.  Having such a legendary player just using their driver and fairway woods is huge for them itself (one would think). If his monumental return ends up being a flop, signing him may not exactly work as they had planned. Then,  you may see them tighten their grip and enforce a 14 club contract if they keep him at all.

I can tell you that theyíve built Tiger a million demo clubs since theyíve signed them. Every time I talk to my TM guys they are saying we just build this or that or 3 of those for Tiger. They literally wonder what he does with everything they send him especially since I imagine heís not out there pounding balls non-stop like he used to be able to.

You think TaylorMade would let Tiger go all of 2018 without using their irons? They already lost almost all of 2017. They've got to push him sooner or later. At least by the Masters.

Does it matter? They want to show him using their driver and fairway woods. That's it.

If it didnít matter they wouldnít have signed him to a 13 club deal. You are paying more for him to use your irons.

They signed him for his name. They want to use his name and picture in advertising. When there is a picture of tiger hitting a shot they want us to see the driver or the 3 wood.
The only people who will be able to tell which irons he is using in pictures are the club geeks on this website (and yes, I include myself in that).

We already know he is using their driver. Any time he tees is up it's obvious that he is using a Taylor Made driver. When he is on TV it will be obvious that he is using a Taylor Made driver. When his picture is on every website, blog, Instagram and Facebook account at the end of the month it will be obvious which driver he is using.

If he switches to Taylor Made irons nobody will know. And most people won't care because it will be blades and the majority of golfers can't hit blades.

Do a quick google image search for Taylor Made golf Dustin Johnson. And for Jason Day. And for Justin Rose. Every picture is of them finishing their swing...with the driver. That's the picture that Taylor Made pays for. Not one of them hitting a 6 iron.

Doubtful tiger would need to have a contract rewritten. His contracts before have always allowed him to play whatever he wanted.

I am of the opinion TM wedges are a big problem for Rory right now. Leading edge height not low enough for him causing him to punt his wedges instead of nip them.

Tigerís contracts have absolutely not allowed him to play whatever he wants. TaylorMade isnít paying him to play Titleist woods, Mizuno irons, and Vokey wedges.

When he was at Nike he could play whatever he felt was best. His revenue was influenced by number of clubs in his bag but he had the freedom to play other stuff if he felt it was better.

I will just find it unusual if he doesn't have TM wedges in his bag. He has had long enough to get a set of wedges to his liking from TM

I have a feeling if he doesn't have them next week, maybe he's not a fan of the MG wedge. Can understand the irons taking longer to develop and refine

No way. Thereís a reason Tiger went to his Scotty Cameron as soon as Nike golf left the business.

He was leaving money on the table by not playing the Nike putter. I said that. He didn't have to play it. He decided it was good enough given the money he was leaving on the table.

Could Tiger have played all non-Nike clubs and still been paid by Nike golf?

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
I am totally prepared to get flamed for this but here goes :-)
Are there others out there who think any kind of long termed contract and possibly even any agreement with Tiger to represent any company might be a mistake?  Even IF he can find a way to be competitive again for 4 rounds of golf in a week, can he represent TM and the game of golf in a way that you want to be represented?  Golf at the professional level can still be considered a game full of respect, honor, and class.  Tiger has not proven to be capable of even representing himself or his family with respect nor honor nor class IMO. I know for one, I am a club HO and love to see and read about WITB and whatever Tiger plays would actually be one set I would not even consider.  
Just one guys opinion!

TM M3 with Motore Speeder VC 6.3 Tour Spec Stiff played at 44.5
Callaway 15 degree SZ with Yellow Hzd. stiff playing 1/2 inch short
Titleist 816 19 degree with Speeder Tour Spec Stiff
Titleist 816 23 degree with Speeder Tour Spec Stiff
TM P770's with Steelfiber shafts PW-6i
TM P790 5i
