Tiger Woods signs multi-year equipment deal with TaylorMade

Published

on

Tiger Woods announced that he has signed an equipment deal with TaylorMade to play the company’s driver, fairway woods, irons and wedges.

“After several months of testing and all brands to choose from, the choice is clearly [TaylorMade], Woods said on Twitter. “Proud to join the family!”

Tiger Woods’ New Metal Woods

Driver: TaylorMade 2016 M2 (9.5 degrees)
Shaft: Mitsubishi Rayon Tensei CK Pro White 70TX
Specs: 44.5 inches, D4 swing weight

3 Wood: TaylorMade 2017 M2 Tour (13 degrees)
Shaft: Mitsubishi Rayon Tensei CK Pro White 90TX
Specs: 42.5 inches, D4 swing weight

5 Wood: TaylorMade 2017 M1 Tour (19 degrees)
Shaft: Mitsubishi Rayon Tensei CK Pro White 90TX
Specs: 41.5 inches, D4 swing weight

Woods was first spotted using TaylorMade golf clubs in the weeks prior to his return to competitive golf at the Hero World Challenge in early December. During the tournament, he used TaylorMade’s 2016 M2 driver (9.5 degrees) and two TaylorMade 2016 M1 fairway woods (15 and 19 degrees).

According to a TaylorMade representative, Woods will use use a TaylorMade driver and two fairway woods this week in 2017 PGA Tour debut this week at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. While he has a 13-club contract with TaylorMade, he will not change to TaylorMade irons and wedges this week.

“For irons and wedges, I’m going to work closely with the team at TaylorMade,” Tiger said in an email distributed by TaylorMade. “For my irons, we will be developing a new custom set. Over the coming months, we will take you along the development journey, from the initial design concepts all the way through the process until they make it into my bag. Finally, the new MG Wedge is absolutely beautiful, and we’re working to dial in the exact grind for me. There’s no doubt it’s fun to have some new weapons, and the confidence I have in my new TaylorMade equipment makes me excited for the season.”

Tiger is currently under contract to use Bridgestone Golf balls (he uses the company’s B330S model) and says he will continue to use the Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS putter that he has had in the bag for 13 of his 14 major championship victories.

    Looks like they should have only signed a multi day contract. See Ya

      OK…having undergone several ortho surgeries I’ll give him 5 or 6 months for rehab – but after another 6 months of hard work only 4 falrlways hit?…How’s that TM driver workin now… try a bonded Honma, Tour Edge or – buy the old (pre Nike deal) Titleist or Cobra molds and make a hundred for himself. They were the last two drivers he could hit the planet with.
      I wish him no ill-will, just tired of the incessant BS coverage. Golf’s moved on, he’s welcome to keep working to catch the train. Let us know when he finishes top 5 this season. Then maybe there will be something to pay attention to…

    Welcome to duck hooks and block rights Tiger.
    The most inconsistent drivers on the market. Poor
    people in the gallery today, they are getting buzzed on both sides of the fairway.

      Yeah he should’ve signed with Callaway he would have found more fairways 50 yards behind DJ

        Jan 27, 2017 at 9:58 am

        Jack he was still 50 yards behind DJ….9, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15th holes…..were you watching? It only took him 3 holes to start throwing his M2. Watch out today. Fore!!

      Jan 30, 2017 at 9:59 am

      True. There’s half a dozen better small shop Japanese heads no ones even heard of here.

      with his bank account & resources he should have spent a month over there – WITHOUT his damn agent – and found the right stuff the old fashion way….hard work, trial & error

    How come when Rory is set to change from Nike everyone points out that he still gets his Nike contract less what he is paid from someone else. Tiger’s deal with Nike was huge and I doubt Taylormade could match that, so then it wouldn’t exactly be “All about the $$$$$$$$” would it?

  4. Craig McMahon

    Jan 26, 2017 at 4:38 am

    So he tested all the brands and it “had” to be TM even though he’s not using the irons yet as he’s helping them build a set??? All about the $$$$$

        That’s how it’s supposed to work. Given the past few President’s love of Executive Orders, it seems like they’ve become the way for the commander in chief to circumvent the executive branch. Looks like he might tax Mexican imports to pay for his wall, lol. In other news, Callaway is now rethinking it’s move to Mexico for metal wood construction.

          The Commander in Chief (President) is the executive branch. Congress is the legislative (lawmaking) branch.

        I think I can translate..See comment below from “weeniewhistle” for context:

        “Hey weeenwhistle, was your cousin’s diabetic call really fat? Put it on a diet then it will get better, right? Thank you for your knowledge, do you golf with a banjo, buddy? Or a fiddle”

        The last part is presumably a reference to the syntax of weeniewhistle’s using and a jab at the fact that he is seemingly a Republican, having made a joke about voting for Hillary.

      I’d guess that a signing like this will move a lot of merchandise for them, regardless of price hikes. Especially if he starts winning again.

    The most laughable comment about any Tiger news is “Who cares”. Do you realize how stupid that comment is? Basically the entire golfing world cares (outside of a small percentage of Tiger haters) and people outside of the golfing world care about Tiger far more than any other player. Those are #Facts, not #AlternativeFacts.

      +50 Jay. Couldnt have said it better.

    • Jay

      Jan 25, 2017 at 2:20 pm

      It’s crazy because Tiger is literally the tide that lifts all boats in the golfing industry – so if you care at all about the golfing industry, shouldn’t you care about what Tiger is doing – even if you don’t like it? It just doesn’t make any sense. The only reason that makes sense is that they’re being a hater holding on to some bitterness from the events of 2009, which is laughable. Completely ridiculous.

  20. Gary Moore

    Jan 25, 2017 at 11:58 am

    Who cares….. all that does is make TaylorMade clubs more expensive for the consumer so they can pay the millions of dollars that they’re going to dish out for Tiger I never really understood why consumers would jump on a brand of clubs just because the pros play them. the consumer doesn’t play anywhere near as well a pro , so what’s the point of getting the clubs that they play

  21. weeeniewhistle

    Jan 25, 2017 at 11:50 am

    Some of y’all really woke up this morning thirsty for the “Haterade”. Y’all sound like idiots. I’m sure most of you are ten times the golfer that Tiger is, that’s how you opinions became so valid right? Or maybe its because you voted for Hilary, probably both. However the case, while Tiger is collecting checks from a company that “wants” to pay him, you’ll still be going home every night from a job you hate, stroking your diabetic cat and wishing someone would “want” to pay you.

    • Ian

      Jan 25, 2017 at 11:57 am

      wow thanks for saying that – i didn’t know cats could be diabetic.

    • BM

      Jan 25, 2017 at 12:18 pm

      If an individual is employed, then someone “wants” to pay them, regardless if they hate their job or not. I can tell you’re not a big fan of logic.
      Oh, and the correct phrase is “whatever the case”.

    It’s official Woods has gone to the Dark Side. Is there a part in his contract where he would get a percentage of driver sales when they start coming out in 3 month intervals?

    • frank

      Jan 25, 2017 at 1:56 pm

      When was the first M1 line introduced. Nov. 2015. When was the next line of M1 launched. December 2016. When can you actually buy. 1-27-17. Where does 3 months come from.

      Here is a way tiger would Impress me.
      Choose a company but do it for free… Take no money and choose because it works best for his game. He doesn’t need the money.. And if he truly is staying around for the love of the game and the competiveness, then do it “pro bono”
      Then I’m all in for Tiger.

  26. Lee

    Jan 25, 2017 at 10:44 am

    For my irons we will develop a new custom set, what like take a set of unbranded Miura’s, loft, bounce and lie to Tigers liking X100 shafts then stamp TM on the back. (in reality they don’t have to be Miura as there are plenty of quality forging houses in Japan and China to choose from)

    Hush my mouth!!!

  29. JJVas

    Jan 25, 2017 at 10:31 am

    My question is why Tiger and Rory, who are both worth eleventy billon dollars, need to sign exclusivity deals with ANYONE??? Why not just play whatever you want? Tiger couldn’t slam that Nike driver fast enough once he put the M2 in his hands, so why get into all of that again? They could have huge apparel deals and then do whatever they want. Totally don’t get it.

    • tlmck

      Jan 25, 2017 at 10:36 am

      Endorsement deals are how you keep your “eleventy billon dollars”.

      Jan 25, 2017 at 10:47 am

      If someone is willing to pay you lots and lots of money to play their clubs and build you exactly what you want why wouldn’t you let them pay you? I have never heard anyone say… “nah I don’t want to make money” Don’t kid yourself. Companies will pay big money for these big names and they would be crazy to not accept that money.

      • JJVas

        Jan 25, 2017 at 10:54 am

        I’d would play with anything anyone was willing to pay me to play, but I can’t buy my own island. I think it’s fair to say that Tiger’s driver alone cost him strokes compared to the M2 product. Why open that can of worms again? Just go play Dubai and get $10M if you’re getting short on hundies to light your cigars with…

    • Jay

      Jan 25, 2017 at 10:58 am

      If you believe in the company, their equipment and the R&D behind it, why wouldn’t you sign and get paid for using their equipment? You’ve had months to test everything, you find what works for you – there’s no need to waffle. Make the decision and run with it!

  30. Quint

    Jan 25, 2017 at 10:27 am

    As long as consumers keep buying new clubs because they are just that, new, companies will continue to sign pros that make them money. They will keep jacking the price of clubs up, the bigger the names they sign. No discredit to TM, they make good stuff, but I’m a Callaway guy myself. As far as Tiger goes, he’s not stupid, he will sign for the right price tag. Whether your a Tiger fan or not, he is still a draw for ticket sales, and equipment sales.

  31. Tazz2293

      That’s because Tiger is probably the one that’ll buy Taylormade. There were rumors speculating that he might pick the brand up, and this now makes it seem even more likely.

      Change the name to Tigermade and can keep all the brand logos haha

  34. Joekelli

    Jan 25, 2017 at 9:37 am

    Why does he need to custom design irons? He should be able to take the new 770 or 750 irons and tweak the grind and weight a little and just play. I think he needs to quit thinking about being perfect and just go out and play golf.!

    • Ron

      Jan 25, 2017 at 9:44 am

      Because he can. If you could, you’d do it too. It’s fun to have stuff custom made for you.

TOUR REPORT: Collin Morikawa debuts new TaylorMade “P7CM” prototype irons

Published

on

Welcome to this week’s Tour Report from Albany in the Bahamas for the 2022 Hero World Challenge. The week started with an unfortunate update from tournament host Tiger Woods, who was forced to withdraw from the event due to pain caused by plantar fasciitis.

As reported by PGATour.com, Woods will not seek surgery, instead opting for a “stretch and relax” approach. He still plans on playing in the upcoming PNC Championship and The Match, however, and we also got a brief look at his current golf swing, as I’ll get into below.

Aside from Woods, there were a few notable gear updates from the Bahamas, including Collin Morikawa debuting two brand new iron models, Corey Conners finally switching drivers, and Tony Finau showing off one of the coolest custom staff bags I’ve ever seen. Justin Thomas made yet another putter change, as well.

Let’s dive into this week’s Tour Report from Nassau, Bahamas.

JT makes yet another putter change

After making several putter changes throughout 2022, the Justin Thomas putter saga ultimately came full circle, ending the year with the same putter that he started off the year with. Before moving into several different 1-of-1 long-neck Scotty Cameron T5 prototype putters, Thomas began the year with a Scotty Cameron X5 Tour Prototype with a short flow neck. And that’s what he had in the bag at the 2022 Hero World Challenge this week, as well.

Also, here’s your reminder that Thomas’ custom Titleist 621.JT Forged irons have zero offset, and they’re bone chillingly intimidating to look down at from address.

Shivers.

Morikawa’s new TaylorMade prototype irons

Typically, Collin Morikawa doesn’t change irons unless he’s playing in extremely firm turf conditions over in Scotland. This week, however, he debuted an entirely new combo set, including TaylorMade “P7CM” prototype short irons (7-PW), and new “P7MC” long irons (5 and 6).

As we highlighted in our Equipment Report over on PGATour.com this week, Morikawa worked closely with TaylorMade to dial in his new P7CM irons, which are obviously named using his initials. While the irons have a similar look to the company’s previous P7MB blade irons, they appear to show a combination between chrome and raw finishes.

Here’s what Morikawa told GolfWRX on Tuesday about the irons, and why he switched out his 4.5-year-old TaylorMade P730 blade short irons:

“They’re brand new,” Morikawa told GolfWRX.com. “I’ve been using them for probably two weeks now. They’re not too far off from the P730’s that I’ve been using pretty much since I turned pro. I was fortunate enough to do some iron testing with TaylorMade – which I’ve never done – and go into the whole sole pattern, and bounce, and width of an iron. There’s nothing wrong with 730’s, I … love them, that’s why I played them for probably 4.5 years now. But there’s just certain shots here and there that come out of nowhere.”

In addition to the new blades, he also debuted new TaylorMade P-7MC irons, which have a different design in their back cavities compared to the previous iterations of P7MC irons. Morikawa said it was an “easy transition,” but we’re yet to hear more details from TaylorMade about specific technical information or possible release dates.

We’ll keep you up to date should we learn more about the TaylorMade P7MCs that Morikawa had in the bag at the Hero.

Tony Finau’s absolute HEATER of a golf bag

Whether you’re a Utah Jazz basketball fan or not, I simply refuse to believe anyone can say this 1-of-1 Vessel-made staff bag isn’t one of the coolest of all time. The all purple colorway, Jazz logo, and jersey-style “Finau 7” stitching on the front make this bag absolutely pop. The icy blue zipper colorway was a nice touch, too.

Finau teed it up in Wednesday’s Pro-Am alongside former NBA all-star and current Utah Jazz executive Danny Ainge, and Finau certainly did not disappoint.

@golfwrx Tursky says Tony Finau’s @Utah Jazz themed bag is the coolest bag he has ever seen. Do you agree? #golf #golftiktok #golfwrx #utahjazz ? original sound – golfwrx

According to Finau, he’s going to autograph and giveaway the golf bag at the upcoming Golden State Warriors vs. Utah Jazz game on Wednesday. If you have a chance to become the owner of this bag, I sincerely wish you good luck.

Corey Conners finally ditches his driver from 5 years ago

Conners, who’s statistically one of the best drivers on the PGA Tour for the last several years, finally switched out his previous Ping G400 LST for a new Ping G430 LST. According to Conners, he started using the G400 LST at the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills, and he hadn’t switched it out since, although he did go through about 10 different heads throughout the 5 year stretch.

He told GolfWRX.com on Tuesday that although he actually found his previous model to produce slightly more speed, the new G430 was significantly more forgiving on off-center hits, so he gave it the nod this week at the Hero. The new driver is also equipped with a 1-of-1 UST Mamiya Linq shaft.

For more information on his switch, head over to the PGATour.com Equipment Report by GolfWRX.

Tiger Woods competes in the “Hero Shot” challenge, despite foot injury 

No one would have blamed Tiger if he didn’t compete in the Hero Shot challenge this year, especially being that he withdrew from the actual event. As the tournament host, however, he sucked it up to help put on a great show for the fans (and for social media).

Although he failed to advance to the second round against the five other competitors, it was still great to see his swing and enjoy the festivities.

For those curious, he used a TaylorMade MG3 56-degree wedge for the 87-yard shot, and he was wearing Nike Metacon 8 sneakers. I took a deep dive into Tiger Woods at the Hero Shot earlier this week, if you’re looking for further insight.

Caddies everywhere, take notes

As a former club caddie myself, I fully respect this move from an Albany caddie during the pro-am. Instead of writing down the players approximate yardages in a yardage book or on piece of paper, he writes them down on a square slab and velcros it to his caddie bib for instant visual access.

This is a true veteran move. I’m questioning the yardage gapping for that particular player, because something seems off, but the point is that it’s a great caddie trick regardless.

And with that, we say goodbye to the Bahamas. Legendary GolfWRX photographer Greg Moore will be on location at the PNC, so look out for more WITBs and inside-the-ropes photos soon.
