Equipment

Former employee at “The Oven” confirms Nike made Tiger’s TGR blade irons

Published

on

The only equipment story that has mattered over the past few days is Tiger Woods’ new “TGR” blade prototype irons. Tiger showed up to his clinic in California with irons we had never seen before, and we asked our GolfWRX Members which manufacturer they thought made the irons.

As it turns out, GolfWRX Members may be even more knowledgeable than we thought. Based on the back cavity, the finish, and the font of the numbers stamped on the soles, 40 percent of GolfWRX members said the TGR irons were made by Nike.

Our inside source, who worked in Nike’s “The Oven” in Fort Worth, Texas, confirmed that the TGR prototype blades were in fact made by Nike.

“Those TGR blades are sweet,” our source told us. “Yes, I do know what they are. We made them for him before we were done at Nike. They are special and it was a tough project emotionally to give them the focus and passion that we always had while wondering if these would be the last we might make for him ever.”

Since Nike Golf got out of the hard goods business, it is likely those were the last irons ever made for Tiger by Nike.

    I love that Tiger is back. But Tiger will never win a major ever again. Too many great players and he can’t keep a driver in play. Today’s professional venues require long drives for the most part, it’s sad but a major for Tiger not ever going to happen.

    It’s genuinely very difficult in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, thus I only
    use internet for that reason, and take the latest news.

    “If this is it, he (Woods) doesn’t have anything to prove to anyone,” McIlroy said, via golfchannel.com . “He can walk away from this game with his head held extremely high and he’s done wonders for this game. I don’t think there’s a single figure in golf who did more for the game in terms of bringing different age groups of people into the game, different ethnicities, different age groups and made golf cool in the ’90s, when it really needed an injection of something.

      Successful people like Tiger never did it for others. His drive is only for himself and thus he just wants to show himself that he can still do it. It’s the confidence and self belief that drove him to the mount rushmore of golf. He fell off track becoming the greatest ever but he’s close.

      Of course I’m just guessing, but this is a common trait for success.

    I agree that there has been no other equipment news that mattered. I’m thrilled to hear they were made by Nike but I wonder: why didn’t/hasn’t TM made any clubs specifically for Tiger? Were these clubs made before/during/after the announcement?

    Absolutely beautiful clubs.

    And this is relevant why?! Eldrick’s new irons will not see the light of a cut day! GO AWAY!

    I thought the better one was the golfer that gave his endorsement money back to Callaway and went back to his Taylormades. Was missing to many cuts with his Callaways and lost his card, Callaway should be toasting with champagne after “Loosing” that guy…..with his attitude he will be an also ran on the Dot. Com tour…

    I’m not saying they are not the same clubs, that’s for sure. But it seems the muscle on the toe is much higher than the 6 iron pic. I suppose maybe the higher muscle on the PW is higher to promote lower launch…? Like I said I’m not saying it’s not the same, but the lines do look a little different…

    Regardless interested to hear some official details eventually.

      Looking again maybe it’s the angle the pic of PW and 6 iron, that makes the toe muscle look higher?

    • Dj

      Oct 13, 2017 at 11:15 pm

      That’s how the vr pros are—the muscle progressively gets higher in the shorter irons

        Cool thanks for clarifying it for me. I was never really up on all of Nike’s clubs, especially their blades.

    And exactly why do we/I care……? To me the “only equipment story that mattered over the past few days” was Sergio leaving TM.

      Tiger is heavily invested in Nike. Stands to reason that the equipment partnership still stands

      • Jack

        It make sense only cuz he’s not back yet. Why make clubs when he’s not playing? And it’s unlikely he will get his signature line if he won’t be playing as he never established himself playing TM on tour.

      Please don’t boohoo, right now.
      Tiger’s return will command all of your applause & boohoos

        Bam. You called it. Where’s the haters at now!? Back is good to go. Tiger in contention the last couple weeks. Vegas has him to win the Masters. Life could only get better if he does in fact win the Masters! He’s hunting. And hungry. Tiger on the prowl.

      Oct 15, 2017 at 12:28 pm

      Wow!???? That’s absolutely what I was thinking when I read his post!
      If he doesn’t care… why post or even comment?
