So what loft has he settled on?  Does Monster taste as nasty as other "energy" drinks?

This could be false as it's just what I have heard. Matrix purchased by Japanese company and production out of Cali. I assume that's an existing facility.

That's great to hear, does anyone else thing TGR may have a hand in the purchase???  Matrix Website is down again stating "We will be back soon" seems like a reintroduction of some sorts???

I just find it interesting he went to a all Matrix bag.....

was he tweaking with driver setting on the range?? I don't recall he plays with the grip logo on the side ever.

Probably so. If I recall I think his grip was like that when he was tweaking the m2 and his m1 fairways

Tiger from today:
Woods, who tees off at 10:22 a.m. Eastern on Thursday with Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy, returned to a Matrix Ozik TP7HDe X-flex shaft that he last used in the 2015 Wyndham Championship.

"We could all see how bad I was driving it," Woods said Tuesday in a news conference from Riviera Country Club, where he is playing for the first time since 2006.

The more "stout" shaft is also complemented by a driver head change adding nearly a degree of loft to his TaylorMade M3.

"It's a shaft that I knew from years past, so when I picked it up again … I know how it feels and now how it performs," Woods said. "I drove it great at Wyndham that year, and so that's about it."

Woods returned to golf last December using a TaylorMade M2 driver featuring Mitsubishi's Tensei CK Pro White 70TX, before shifting to a 44-inch M3 at Torrey Pines featuring the same Tensei shaft.

Tiger went into greater detail for those wanting a deeper explanation, including a little lingo for "bend."

"Because it's more stout, it doesn't have much play," Woods said. "I needed a little more loft, so I added a degree of loft on it. With the new head and one more degree, I found that I could then take off a quarter of a degree. Quite frankly, it's three-quarters degrees more loft than what I used at Torrey, but it's spinning the correct amount now."


Tiger singled handily trying to bring Matrix back from the depths of bankruptcy!!!!!

There is no way in hell the TP6HDe is more "Stout" than a 1.5" Tipped CK Pro White 70TX.

IDK what he is talking about maybe he should go back to the M2/Tensei combo he crushed a month ago.

Maybe the TP7HDe is tipped also and possibly the TP7HDe has a firmer feel throughout instead of a softer butt end like the pro white. I don't know for certain since I've never looked into the matrix

He's playing the TP6HDe which is around 68 grams if I remember.  It's a VERY smooth feeling shaft not stout at all IMO.

I love Matrix very glad they are alive & well but I don't agree at all with the "Stout" statement the HDe line is very smooth feeling and high torque in the lower weights.

I really don't know why Tiger doesn't just go back to "Snowflake" I mean he was long and accurate with that combo.

Tiger low key has one of the best bags on tour. Gonna hate to see if/when those TGR blades and VR forged wedges go.
I wouldn’t mind seeing him move into his TM blades, but the VR Forged are hard to beat. I had a set and replaced them with the new Milled Grinds this past year. Don’t get me wrong, they’re good wedges, but they just don’t compare in feel to the Nike’s. I brought one of the old ones to practice with the other day and it feels amazing. Just wish the face had some grooves on it.

Now that he's switched to M3, he won't go back to M2 because he knows the buzz that would create and that it would be a bad look for the new line. But there is no way Tiger Woods is contractually obligated to put the latest driver into play. None.
